Judith Burns and Jandellyn & Johnathan Ward will present a “Garden of Delights” as featured artists at Artworks Gallery for the month of September. Jandellyn & Johnathan will be showing new metal garden art pieces and Judith’s wall will be covered with scenes inspired by Whidbey Gardens.

The Wards strive to create functional art for the home and garden.  If it
can be functional, and beautiful, they can provide the best of both
worlds.  Many pieces of their garden art will include a combination of glass and steel as well as highlights of dragonflies.

Burns says, “ Inspiration for the Garden of Delights exhibit comes from the gardens of the many homes in which I’ve lived; but I always try to add a touch of imagination.”  Nature’s organic shapes and color palettes can be seen throughout this collection.

Artworks Gallery is located on Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island. Hours are 11-5 everyday.   For more information, visit the web site: artworkswhidbey.com or call 360.222.3010.

Raven Rocks Gallery

Raven Rocks Gallery presents
“Shards of Life: stained glass mosaics”
September 5 – October 2, 2014
Gallery Reception Sunday, September14 from 1-4 PM

“Spring Garden”

Carl and Sandra Bryant, of Showcase Mosaics, are among the finest stained glass mosaic artists in America. Our gallery is honored to be debuting three of their exquisite new works in a featured opening during September. “Central Park in the Snow” is a poignant scene of soft winter tones portraying The Dakota, former home of John Lennon. “Spring Garden” is a breathtaking image set in a formal garden with a peacock as the central figure, and “Florals in Pink” depicts a classic vase of flowers in a turquoise vase against a gold-toned background. The minute detail and colors in these mosaics must be seen to be appreciated, pictures cannot do them justice. In the artist’s words, “The work we create as a team, though we have unique styles, shares a focus on relationship. We celebrate relationships between humanity and our environment, our human connections, how our experiences intertwine, our feelings over time and of the moment.  It is our goal to engage the viewer in this connection, to look up close at the small pieces and step back for a view of the whole.”

Please join us for our gallery reception on Sunday, September 14 from 1-4 PM. Our gallery is a proud member of The Whidbey Art Trail, a year-round self guided tour of art studios and galleries featuring the work of local & regional artists. Raven Rocks Gallery is located at Greenbank Farm, 765 Wonn Road C-101, Greenbank, WA 98253 on beautiful Whidbey Island, WA. For information, and gallery hours, please call 360-222-0102, or visit our website at www.ravenrocksgallery.com.

Rob Schouten Gallery presents “Island Times… Greenbank and Beyond” featuring the paintings of Byron Birdsall. The show opens Friday, Aug. 29 and runs through Monday, Sept. 29.

“Almost Ready,” watercolor by Byron Birdsall.

Birdsall is an artist with a national reputation for his depictions of nature and a guy with a hankering for some auld lang syne.

Best known for the variety and drama of his Alaskan landscapes, Birdsall’s unique ability to capture light is evident in all of his paintings, along with his penchant for times gone by, including his nostalgic renderings of Whidbey Island.

While landscapes and cityscapes are Birdsall’s forte, his love of history has led to painting from archival material resulting in many historical pieces, such as his early 20th century depictions of the Greenbank Store, and downtown Langley and Coupeville. The show will also feature the artist’s iconic landscapes of his beloved Alaska and of the Northwest.

“One of my regrets is that there is no time travel. How dearly I would love to go back in time and be part of life way back when,” Birdsall said. “But in a way I can. By studying old photographs and reading chronicles from times past, I can, through my brush, take myself back to any place and any time.”

A longtime resident of Anchorage, Alaska, and now living part-time on Whidbey Island, Birdsall continually finds inspiration in the Puget Sound region, particularly Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Mountains and the Whidbey.

“I first came to Whidbey Island in 1999 and was entranced by the beauty of the place, and Whidbey Island has a rich and interesting history, as well,” Birdsall said.

Using old photographs, Birdsall captures scenes of Whidbey that reveal his pleasure in the charm of small town life. In fact, Birdsall said his long career as a painter has all been a great pleasure, occupied as he is by doing the thing he loves best.

“What more can a person have than an occupation that offers exaltation and solace every day?”

Please join us for light refreshments and a chance to meet the artist from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept.14 during Greenbank Farm’s “Second Sunday at the Farm” event, when the Farm’s galleries, shops, cafe and market welcome visitors to enjoy a relaxed afternoon of fine art, good food, natural beauty and lively conversation.
