Redmond’s art renaissance is a source of community pride.
The recent renaissance in downtown Redmond has led to a greater appreciation for art and culture as well as a deeper understanding of how art builds a “sense of place” and aesthetic harmony.
Redmond’s foray into public art began with two generous donations to the City, from Nike founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny. This set in motion the creation of the Redmond Committee for Art in Public Places (RCAPP) and through their dedicated efforts and programs they have placed numerous permanent art pieces throughout Redmond.
RCAPP’s Art Around the Clock program features several “on loan” pieces for a two-year showing. This outdoor gallery includes a select showing of juried pieces designed to enhance the beauty and livability of our community. These creative works of art, displayed on a two-year rotation, are available for purchase by the public and one each year is chosen by the community to keep.
At the completion of each gallery season, the community eagerly welcomes the opportunity to vote on the “People’s Choice” award. The piece receiving the most votes is then purchased by RCAPP and is permanently added to the City’s public art collection. With each new acquisition, Redmond’s identity and artistic expression is proudly displayed for all to see.

The goal of Alfred's paintings is to elevate and enlighten the human consciousness through inspirational artwork and storytelling. Combining elements from mythology, history, psychology, physics and metaphysics, they guide the viewer beyond the boundaries to explore the realm of possibilities. His symbolic works are much more than a painting!
Painting almost 50 years with 300 works completed Alfred offers classes in drawing and oil painting welcoming all skill levels. All class dates and times are set to accommodate your schedule and our ongoing students.
From Vienna, Austria, Alfred will share his creative process - everything that ever was achieved begins with the desire to accomplish something greater. See the work online at www.alfreddolezal.com or visit the gallery and see these stunning works of art in person at:
