The work of relief printmaking artist, Linnane Armstrong, will be featured in Penn Cove Gallery for the month of August. Linnane creates woodcut and linocut prints inspired by the dramatic landscapes and natural elements of her Whidbey Island home. Her colorful and monochrome images use value and pattern in ways that draw the viewer deep into the scene.
Artist Rainy Lindell will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Friday, July, 12th from 10:00AM to 5:30PM with her collection of Pacific Northwest bird paintings. Rainy uses oil paints, the medium of the old masters, because of the glowing, rich, warm dark colors as well as the vibrant, bright lights they offer. Rainy draws inspiration not only from wild life but from the skies, waters and mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
We are excited to add two new artists to our gallery.
David Sharpe has been a photographer for 26 years and finds Whidbey Island a photographers paradise. He considers himself a “Fine Art Photographer” in the sense that he uses photography as a medium to bring something to life that only lives in the artist’s mind. Using the beauty around him for images, he then uses software to “tweak” the photo to match what he sees in his mind. This allows him to create a more powerful image of reality.
Annette Hanna has been receiving awards for her artwork since 1986. She has studied with Masters of Portraiture, and is a signature member of state and national Pastel Societies. Annette has been painting and drawing most of her life. She enjoys the quick and forgiving pastel medium which is well suited for both portraiture and landscape. The Pacific Northwest provides her with many opportunities to paint outdoors in beautiful country.

Sandy Dubpernell is our stained glass artist and will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Sunday, June 16, 2019. Stop in to see her work and learn about her glass art techniques. Sandy began her Sundown Stained Glass Studio in 1980, and uses the Louis Comfort Tiffany copper foil techniques to create her colorful stained glass designs. Her passion is to form pieces representing the flowers and animal life she finds here on Whidbey Island as well as on her many eco-trips.
