Mixed Media Artist Diane Tompkinson will be at the Gallery on Thursday, January 24, from 10AM to 5 PM with some of her print making tools. Although Diane works in mixed media, it is through printmaking that she is able to enjoy her love of painting, drawing, and carving. Growing up on the wooded bluffs and beaches of Puget Sound, Diane finds inspiration among the many birds and saltwater creatures found there. See more of her work here.
Four Penn Cove Gallery artists will be among 11 local artists selling their work at this special holiday art sale December 15-16 at the Coupeville Rec Hall. Woodturner Jim Short, jewelry maker Mary Ellen O'Connor, printmaker Linnane Armstrong, and glass bead maker Bev McQuary are participating. And of course Penn Cove Gallery is just a half block away so we'd love to see you too before or after your visit to this special sale.
We are happy to welcome oil painter Timothy Haslet to our gallery. The Impressionists have inspired Timothy, not only in their approach to painting and its application, but also with their supportive community. Many of his landscapes and portraits are also expressionist in nature, as communicating emotion through color is key. Stop by to see his colorful paintings.

Jewelry designer, Akemi Walker, will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Sunday, December 30, 2018, from 10- 5pm to demonstrate her work and methods. Akemi’s special love is Art Clay Silver, a mixture of fine silver powder and organic material which comes as a form of clay. When fired, the organic material burns off and the silver fuses to become fine silver sculptured pieces. She uses freshwater pearls, semiprecious stones and Baltic amber with sterling silver in her designs. Living on Whidbey Island, her sculptured fine silver pieces are inspired by the incredible nature that surrounds her.
