Penn Cove Gallery is excited to add Shari Thompson to its collection of local talent. Shari is a self-taught bead weaver who uses a thin beading needle threaded with strong, monofilament fishing line to pick up tiny seed beads and needle weave them into unique, one of a kind jewelry pieces. Shari first became acquainted with seed beads as a teenager. She is inspired by all the colors and varieties of seed beads and the array of stitches available.

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.
