A Little About the Show:  

Date:  First Friday Artwalk:  September 1, 6-8 pm

Continuing:  New Work from Bainbridge Island artist Jen Till.  In this collection Jen wields a loose brush, incorporating greater liquid and flow into her paints, to pleasing effect.  Showing an easy familiarity with her medium - oils on board and canvas - she continues to translate the beauty of her natural surroundings into studies of landscapes and objects, creating gauzy, accessible, yet highly personal works of emotion and memory.

New in September:  We are also featuring New Fall Arrivals in Wearable Art:  Raincoats and outer wear from Winding River, woven and felted pieces from two new textile artists, unisex tee-shirts of cotton and inset vintage kimono from Chiho Couture, bags from Tumar Art of Kyrgystan, and jewelry ready to enhance autumn outfits from artists Christine L. Sundt and Carolina Andersson.

 A quick preview of some of these new pieces:

Above:  artfully crafted combinations of cotton tee-shirts and vintage silk kimono from Chiho Couture.

In Concert on the Plaza:  The Jenny Davis Trio.

Event Location: 

The Island Gallery, 400 Winslow Way E, #120, Bainbridge Island, Washington.

Underground parking is available at The Winslow off Ericksen Avenue.
