Printmaker and collage artist Francy Blumhagen tell us that having lived on Whidbey Island most of her life, she finds that the Island provides ample inspiration with the imagery of the natural world. This captivates her as an artist with its many plants, birds and animals; the land, sea and sky. The work itself is usually not entirely realistic or abstract, but develops from color, pattern, texture, and movement. We will be re-opening June 6th, come take a look!
In response to the COVID-19 virus, Penn Cove Gallery decided we want to protect the health of our customers and our membership.
Penn Cove Gallery will close temporarily beginning Monday, March 16 through the end of this month, at which time we will reassess whether the gallery needs to remain closed.
We so appreciate your support of our gallery. We will check our email, firstname.lastname@example.org, regularly and post updates and member news on Facebook, Instagram, and here in News and Events. In the interim, please enjoy our members’ artwork through these channels. If you would like, you may request that a member show their work privately during this time.
Feel free to contact us with any questions. We look forward to your visit at Penn Cove Gallery when we return. And most importantly, please stay safe and healthy!
Printmaker and collage artist Francy Blumhagen will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Thursday, March 26, 2020, from 10AM to 5PM, with some of the tools she uses in creating her art. What captivates her as an artist is the imagery of the natural world, and having lived on Whidbey Island most of her life, she finds that the Island provides ample inspiration with its many plants, birds and animals and the land, sea and sky where they are found.The work itself is usually not entirely realistic or abstract, but develops from color, pattern, texture, and movement. Come take a look!
Photographer Marianne Borozny will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Thursday, February 13, 2020 from 10am to 5pm with some of her photography equipment. Marianne has explored the natural and the created landscape for nearly thirty years. Her work shows that she easily recognizes the beauty and idiosyncrasies in those landscapes. Her aim is always to isolate the essence of the scene: the shapes, form, patterns, light, and texture. Her greatest muse is Whidbey Island, but she also creates works of the Southwest and New England.
