Artwood Gallery, 1000 Harris Avenue in Bellingham’s Historic Fairhaven district, is featuring the fish carvings of Phil Skochilich for the month of September. A former steelhead fisherman with a lifelong interest in marine animals, Phil now “catches” these fish from wood he has salvaged along the Washington and Oregon coasts. He says, "The creations are there, in the log, I just have to pull them out!” Nine carvings, 2 -3 feet long, will be displayed on Artwood’s walls.
“Artist’s Choice” is back by popular demand at Fourth Corner Frames & Gallery, 311 W. Holly Street. A collaborative show between artist and framer, the mediums are as diverse as the subject matters. Each invited artist will bring their “small” works (8” x 10” or under) to the gallery unframed. A fun feature of this show is the professional frame designs will be specifically created for each piece by our staff at Fourth Corner Frames. An opening reception September 2, and a closing reception October 7 will be held during Downtown Bellingham Art Walk, 6pm – 9pm. Shown: Erin Libby’s Early One Morning.
Honey Salon, 310 W. Holly Street, presents a group show featuring the works of Honey clients, stylists and friends titled “Honeys Hunnys.” This open theme gallery presentation is meant to showcase the talent of the whole Honey hive. Opening reception, complete with honey cocktails, sweet treats and our own PhDJ spinning Sting, Beyonce, The Bee Gees (and other bee favs) debuts September 2 during the Downtown Bellingham Art Walk 6-10pm.
