New Works by Kathleen Otley
April 2 – 28
OPENING RECEPTION TONIGHT APRIL 4 5-8pm
Rob Schouten Gallery is proud to present “Stones and Scrolls ﹣ Willow and Wax” showing new works by Whidbey artist Kathleen Otley. The show opens April 2 and runs through April 28. A reception for the artist will be held on Friday, April 4 from 5 to 8 p.m., during Greenbank Farm’s ‘First Friday at the Farm’ event.
“In this show, I explore the idea of creating new works of art that I hope invoke in the viewer a sense of objects preserved and valued from the past,” Otley said.
Otley’s is a show of lively contemporary works that simultaneously create a feeling of antiquity by way of the artist’s use of ancient scrolls, a primitive painting style, and her clever use of other unexpected materials in her encaustics. Otley also makes new explorations in her bundled-willow wall art. The artist notes that this show will contain an element of surprise, and that she’s doing some different things for this show.
Please join us for a Fabulous Opening Night Party from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 7!
Rob Schouten Gallery, a premier showcase for Whidbey Island and Northwest artists, is located at historic Greenbank Farm on scenic Whidbey Island amidst rolling hills and forests offering breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic and Cascade mountains.
Year-round festivals and markets complement the offerings of the Farm’s Wine Tasting Shop, Greenbank Cheese and Whidbey Pies Cafe, set in lovely gardens and grounds. Raven Rocks Gallery & Gifts and Artworks Gallery round out this must see destination.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
