May Exhibition Molly White and Benefit for the Boys and Girls Club

Blossoming Futures: A Garden of Possibilities

What do kids and art have in common? Both need to be nurtured to grow.  With loving guidance, determination and patience, wonderful people and art emerge. 

During the month of May, join Blue Whole Gallery and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula as we enjoy the work of featured artist Molly White while raising funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Molly White is excited to be partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs. “As a retired teacher of young children, I love sharing the windows with The Boys & Girls Clubs,” states White, “Children are our future and I love and have always loved helping them grow into thoughtful, kind, problem solving adults. Art was always a big part of my instruction as well!”

Molly still nurtures everything around her. Her animals, garden and grandson are now her benefactors. Her love of art and her subject matter comes through in the colorful whimsy and spirit seen in her paintings. She is a master in pastels, acrylics or oil.

Learn more about Molly’s artwork on her Blue Whole Gallery artist page.

The artists at Blue Whole Gallery will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of selected works to the Boys & Girls Clubs throughout May. The Boys & Girls Clubs provide essential services to children 18 and under. While in a safe and nurturing environment, the Clubs offer various programs during the summer that focus on child development as well as academic enrichment keeping kids on track for the next school year.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula is a great partner and mentor for our community’s children. Join the artists of Blue Whole Gallery in supporting their efforts during the month of May.

Our Changing Exhibitions

Art galleries serve as creative hubs where artists can showcase their work and art enthusiasts can appreciate the diversity of artistic expressions. While every piece of art deserves attention, our gallery, like many others, has adopted a special practice known as our Featured Artist of the Month. This spotlight not only provides recognition for the artist but also enriches the gallery’s offerings and the overall experience for visitors. Our changing exhibitions also include area students, educators and group shows that periodically benefit community non-profit organizations.

The practice of featuring an artist each month at an art gallery is a win-win for artists, galleries, and visitors. It helps promote diversity, fosters new talent, engages the community, and keeps the gallery experience fresh and exciting. For artists, being featured is an opportunity to gain exposure and validation while connecting with a wider audience. For visitors, it offers a constantly evolving and enriching art experience. The spotlight truly shines bright on both the artists and the galleries when this tradition is embraced.
