Wood artist Jim Short will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Wednesday, October, 30, 2019 from 10:00 to 5:00 with some of his wood turning tools. Jim rescues homeless wood. His turnings often come from local trees headed for the landfill or a stove. He enjoys the wood's connection to Whidbey Island’s climate and community. A signature of his work is highlighting "imperfections." Forms are developed on the lathe as the wood allows. Most pieces are turned green, allowed to dry and then turned again, sanded and finished. Other green pieces are turned to a finished form and left to find their own shape and texture.
Visit oil painter Timothy Haslet at Penn Cove Gallery on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Hours are 10:00 until 5:00. Timothy will be demonstrating oil painting.
Timothy is a native of the Pacific NW and an Art graduate of Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. He comes from a family of artists and was instructed in art and visual expression from as far back as he can remember. Timothy is inspired by the Impressionists, this is reflected in many of his landscapes and portraits by emphasizing movement and communicating emotion through color.

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.
