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.
Gary will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Friday, November the 30, 2018 from 10-5pm, with some of his woodworking tools. Gary’s passion is to search the countryside for a special, one-of- a-kind, piece of timber that has character. He then turns it into a finely engineered, beautiful piece of furniture that is a true work of art. Using methods and styles of earlier times, Gary credits his grandfather for nurturing a keen appreciation for all things wooden. See Gary's website for more.
