GALLERY’S 5th ANNIVERSARY
by Dan Freeman & Angèle Woolery
May 3 – June 3
At Whidbey Island’s Greenbank Farm
Connection – Inspiration – Beauty
New Work by Dan Freeman & Angèle Woolery
May 3 through June 3
Sculptor Dan Freeman, and painter Angèle Woolery are our featured artists in May and will help us celebrate our five-year marker.
Dan Freeman is particularly interested in combining differing materials, such as wood with metal, or metal with stone, creating sculptures for both in and outdoor display. Recently he added motion to his artistic vocabulary and has created a number of kinetic sculptures, one of which will be on display in the gallery’s sculpture garden along with numerous other works by the artist.
German born painter Angèle Woolery is the daughter of master painter Helmut Mueller-Wiehl whose work greatly influenced Angèle’s sense of color and design. After a 25 year career in filmmaking she devoted herself to her first love, painting, and relocated to Whidbey Island. Woolery will be exhibiting her vivid oil landscapes and pastel flowers. Angèle says, “I’m always amazed by the brilliant colors that come off my palette. It’s not something I choose, it just happens.”
“Getting to our fifth anniversary has had its challenges. Four months after we opened our gallery in 2008, the financial crisis hit. And while it was hard establishing a new gallery in a somewhat out-of-the-way place, we have managed to thrive and flourish. In the last few years we have become the top-selling gallery for some of our well-known artists, and continue to attract some of our region’s most exciting artists. We are so thrilled about that,” says gallery co-owner Rob Schouten. “We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from our community and our artists and look forward to the next five years.”
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!
