Cascadia Art Museum, 190 Sunset Avenue,, is featuring a selection of rare sculpture by major Northwest artists covering the decades of 1920’s-1960’s in an exhibition titled “Northwest Sculpture: Five Decades of Form and Innovation.” Artists working in wood, plaster, marble and bronze include Everett DuPen, John Carl Ely, Marvin Herard, James FitzGerald, Phillip Levine, Ebba Rapp, and George Tsutakawa.
Currently showing at the Cole Gallery, 107 5th. Avenue S., is work by Mike Wise who brings a new collection of art embodying the essence of the rugged and wild landscape, the elegance of nature and the profound beauty of our American farmlands. Also showing is Kyle Paliotto’s impressionist landscapes and animal paintings which bring an intimate perspective into farm life and the beauty of rural settings all around us. Champagne toast and light dessert bites along with live Gypsy Jazz from the Toka Ensemble and the reception on Art Walk night.
The June exhibit at Gallery North, 401 Main Street, is "It’s in the Details!” featuring Anacortes painter Sue Swapp and Yakima potter Bernadette Crider. Swapp is highly skilled in oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor and bases her choice of medium on her subject. Her work features Northwest landscapes and often offers the viewer a moment’s glimpse into the life of an animal. Crider creates her celadon and plum-red ceramic pieces by hand-carving details into the leather-hard clay before it is fired.
Zinc Art + Object Gallery, 102 3rd. Avenue S., opens “Pieces of Stories” and
a second look at works by Hibiki Miyazaki & Melinda Tidwell.
