Renton History Museum
Now through 2/11/2022

In 2014 Seattleite Erline Alston suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. A year later she reluctantly accepted a friend’s invitation to an arts and crafts party, because, she said, “I don’t like to create art!” Accepting the invitation dramatically changed her life. Alston became a prolific visual artist, exhibiting over 30 impressionistic landscape paintings in solo and group exhibits. Alston credits art with not only aiding in her stroke recovery, but also with providing an emotional outlet to grieve the loss of her beloved sister. The Renton History Museum is excited to host the Brain Injury Art Show to exhibit the art of twenty-two area artists who share their brain injury journeys.

The Renton History Museum is located at 235 Mill Avenue S in Renton. Hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM. COVID precautions: masks required, social distancing, frequent cleaning, and limited capacity. Because our capacity is limited to 25% at a time (or 15 people) we recommend that you call or email for reservations so you won’t be disappointed: 425-255-2330.
