Four Penn Cove Gallery artists will be showing and selling their work in the upcoming Whidbey Allied Artists Art Show, May 12-14. Painters Phyllis Drummond, Margaret Livermore, and Rainy Lindell, along with stained glass artist Sandy Dubpernell, will be among 20 local artists participating in the show.
Oil painter Rainy Lindell is Whidbey Working Artists' Featured Artist for the month of May. She finds subjects - such as the beautiful owl shown at left - every day in this area of water and mountains.
The group show is right around the corner from Penn Cove Gallery in the Coupeville Rec Hall. Show dates and hours are: May 12-14, 10:00-6:00 Friday and Saturday/10:00 - 5:00 Sunday.
Penn Cove Gallery is pleased to announce that photographer Marianne Borozny has joined us as the 26th Whidbey Island artist in the gallery.
Marianne says: "I have tried to approach the world with my eyes wide open during 28 years behind the camera, creating works mainly in the Southwest, Northwest, Pacific Coast, and New England. My greatest muse is my current home, Whidbey Island."
According to Marianne, her interests lie in capturing natural light, crystallizing simple forms, and isolating textures and patterns. "I always seek the essence of a scene or an object. My 10 years as an art jeweler informs the sometimes sculptural sense of my photographs. Even if they do not fit into the schema of my work, every now and then I find whimsical moments that I must photograph, such as hunted cows, miniature Grand Canyon snowmen, and ornamented VW Beetles."
Marianne's work goes up in the gallery today. Be sure to stop in and enjoy this wonderful addition to Penn Cove Gallery. Welcome Marianne!
