Kenmore-based artist A. Gaul Culley’s new project, “Remembering History: Sammamish River/Slough Boat Races (1933-1976),” will be celebrated from noon-4 p.m. April 7 at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave. N.E.

The free event will feature Culley’s prints, which depict boats racing on the Sammamish River, along with lectures by local boat-racing historians and past Slough Boat Race drivers; videos and photos pulled from the archives of the Kenmore, Bothell, and Redmond historical societies; a Classic Boat Show featuring the Unlimited Hydroplane MISS WAHOO; and a build-your-own origami boat workshop.

“Over the last three months, my mission has been to use the creative process to establish a series of artworks and a yearly inter-city community engagement event that celebrates the elemental value that the ‘Builders of our communities’ and the Sammamish River have to the cities of Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville and Redmond,” Culley said. “The first year highlights recreation on the Sammamish River.”

“The Winners and The Innovators,” an installation by Culley, will also be on display at Gallery4Culture in Seattle through April 26.
