Impressionist paintings present the world with its edges softened, a place where beauty is highlighted through expressive use of brush strokes. Kennewick oil painter Carol Betker paints with the idea of capturing “the Creator’s little treasures” that come into her view. Her Alla Prima works include florals, landscapes, animal portraits and equine art. (During February, the gallery closes at 4:30 on Fridays.) Open through March 8.
