Janis, will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Friday, February 22nd, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with her colored pencils and will answer questions about their use. Janis loves the detail and precision of pencil drawings. She chooses her subjects from the natural world on Whidbey Island, where she finds water views, beaches, forests, birds, shells, plants and wildlife. She begins her work with a sketch, deciding lighting, form, color and composition, and then gradually shapes it into its final form.
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.
