Join us on First Friday September 5.
Come celebrate our New Show and the Artist of the Month, Lynne Armstrpong and Debbie Cain
The show is called “Fulfillment”. Expressions of their fulfillment in the Northwest will be showcased in the front windows throughout the month of September. Their art capture the glory of the nature and the fulfillment of the rich harvest.
“I did my first gourd about ten years ago and was totally captivated to explore the possibilities on this new 3d canvas. I have painted, embellished with enlace, embedded stones and add any natural materials such as pine needles. I enjoy doing custom work such as pet and people portraits.
I have had a gourd featured in a book by Betsey Sloan, “Antler Art for Baskets and Gourds. I have won several ribbons and took first place in the Arizona Gourd Society competition. I was a stained glass artist for 20 years, however, gourd art is where my heart lies because your imagination has no limits.”
Lynne Armstrong has been working on a new series for her display as artist of the month for September in the Blue Whole Gallery. Her “Dream” series needed abstraction to convey the subject. Often throughout her painting career she has turned to a more abstract style in search of a purity of expression. Her window will also feature her new series begun with flowering trees this spring, and moving into a fall scene of trees laden with ripening fruit. The subject of this series is “Fulfillment”. Trees in all seasons are a recurring subject choice for her.
