December 6, 2018 - January 4, 2019

This month we are honored to bring a stunning collection of landscapes by Gary O'Gara.  Gary was nationally acclaimed from the late 1900's through the early 2000's for his moody, ethereal oils which evoke and sense of peace and hope in the midst of the storm. Reminiscent of both modern, abstracted landscapes as well as the style of artists such as Frederick Church, O'Gara brought a sensitivity and mystical feeling to his landscapes. We hope you will enjoy these beautifully unique paintings as much as we do!



From now through December 16 we're offering 10% off all art and 15% off all art to our repeat collectors!


December 1, 2018 - January 14, 2019

We are thrilled to present a wonderful new artist from Idaho, Maia Leisz!  We discovered Maia at the Edmonds Arts Festival and thanks to one of our collectors who asked us to contact her, we made the connection and are delighted with Maia's colorful European and Northwest inspired landscapes. Her lively paintings bring a contemporary flair to classical subjects from Tuscany and Provence where she studied painting in Aix-en-Provence. Living in Idaho, Maia is surrounded by mountains, forests and rivers, giving her an abundance of opportunities to paint the beauty of the West.

We're delighted to offer a colorful new contemporary show featuring the finger paintings of Kimberly Adams and the lively impressionism of Heather Pasqualino and Kathy Gale. Especially timely with the coming of Autumn's darker, rainier days in late October and November, this vibrant show will help us as we adjust from the warmth of summer and as we turn our attention to indoor living. With the climate turning to shades of gray, our hearts and spirits our buoyed by the bright, warm colors of these talented artists. Come and enjoy this new show, and then bring home some brightness to the places and spaces of your own home!

The show runs from October 15 to November 12, and we invite you to come and celebrate autumnal days with us all month long.


September 14, 2018 - October 15, 2018

From powerful skies and stunning landscapes by Andy Eccleshall to Michelle Waldele's still lifes, which range from elegant to whimsical, these two masterful painters bring their talents to the forefront in this exquisite show.  Although local to our community, both artists are widely regarded on the national level for their beautiful work.



Master of the landscape, Andy Eccleshall explores intriguing lighting and atmospheric effects in his new show. Bold contrasts and vivid light cascade throughout many of Eccleshalls paintings, bringing an epic drama to his work; in other pieces, he poignantly captures still, misty mornings or starlit nights with deft precision and mood. Eccleshall has proven his brush again, so to speak, with this new realism show in a bewitching, painterly way as he captures the world of nature as it intersects with man. Simply breathtaking.


 


In her latest show, master of classical realism Michelle Waldele explores the beauty and whimsy of birds and flowers along with vintage toys and books. Michelle’s delightful paintings are filled with surprises as her exquisitely detailed still lifes never fail to charm, bringing wit and wonder to the viewer. Each work has its own narrative, a delightful view into the artist's vision of the lighter side of life.  


August 16, 2018 - September 17, 2018

From sunlit afternoons with fields of flowers to sparkling waters, forests and farms, Susan Diehl, Robin Weiss and Kyle Paliotto bring a beautiful collection of impressionist oils for our late summer show.


July 19, 2018 - August 13, 2018

July in the Pacific NW brings us sunshine and much needed warmth and light. Our featured artists this month, Mike Wise and Ron Stocke beautifully capture our environment, both locally and in the wider world with their masterful use of light, color, and reflection in their paintings.



Internationally acclaimed watercolorist, Ron Stocke's images capture reflections of a colored awning onto a rainy Paris street or the light streaming through a cafe window that catches a table top or glassware. Light and reflections in his work can draw you into the painting as shadows connect the objects in compositions. Ron recently shared, "The play of light and shadow is what the watercolor medium is all about and I enjoy exploiting this at every opportunity." 



Mike Wise brings us new oil paintings showcasing several local scenes, capturing his masterful use of light and reflection. A new painting of a gorgeous lily pond is just a stone's throw from his home on Whidbey Island. His northwest homesteads hearken back to days gone by, letting the viewer journey back in time.  Added to that are lush cottonwood creeks and golden aspen forests from recent travels to New Mexico, and even a floral piece or two that will lift your spirit with their simple, colorful beauty.



Meet the artists Thursday, July 19th from 5:00-8:00 and enjoy champagne, light desserts and a special tasting from Glass Vodka!


June 13, 2018 - July 16, 2018

Nationally acclaimed watercolorist Bev Jozwiak brings a beautiful collection of figurative and animal paintings for her latest show. Always fresh and new, Bev's subjects come alive with painterly brushwork as she allows the medium of watercolor to shine as her colorful paintings drip, splatter and flow into stunning impressionistic works of art.


June 13, 2018 - July 16, 2018

These two impressionists create an intimate narraitive of people and experiences for the viewer to be taken in by. Although both Michael Fitzpatrick and Michael Maczuga are masterful figuartive oil painters, they glean inspiration from different sources. Maczuga, a long time children's swim coach travels the world, capturing children at play, in festivals, and exploring and learning about thier world. Fitzpatrick's muses play between singers, dancers, street buskers and recently, the whimsy of the circus.
