“Although I have painted for more than fifty years, each year becomes more exciting for me than the year before.”  John Ford Clymer

Looking at art is not the same as discovering art.  The Clymer galleries present a unique perspective.  We give you the place and time to develop your knowledge and love of art.  This begins with the masterly work of John Ford Clymer, as well as that of regional masters and in the presentation of emerging and mid career artists.

Join us in moving from potential to Fit for Use! Help the Clymer Foundation Facilitate Ellensburg's Next Dynamic Creative Space.  Imagine  a new  event platform in downtown Ellensburg.

The Clymer Ballroom will facilitate rehearsal space, musical events, community gatherings and more. This is a big project, requiring some heavy lifting & big bucks.  And your Clymer is going for it- writing grants, reaching out to local  and state reps... 
The Clymer is much more than a Museum. It's an essential Cultural Hub 
in the creation of a vibrant Ellensburg.
