Continuing Exhibition

November 3 – 30, 2017
Art is both inspirational and functional.  Paintings, prints and sculptures in the home
inspire our daily lives.  Where we sit and sleep, how we cook and eat our food,
and drink our coffee and wine, art enhances the flavor of life.

Fifteen of the Gallery’s artists exhibit new work – furniture, prints, ceramics,
and fiber sculpture - that both inspires and provides
functionality for daily living.

Sean Carleton, Patrick Clanton, L. Wendy Dunder, Meg Hartwell, Robin Hominiuk

About the Musicians:

The Jenny Davis Jazz Duo

Jenny and Chuck, performing at the Gallery earlier this year
A Seattle native, Jenny Davis earned her Bachelor of Music from the prestigious Cornish College of the Arts. She is currently working on her MFA in jazz composition.  A 20-year steward of straight-ahead jazz, she actively performs throughout the U.S. and Canada in clubs, festivals and jazz venues.  A true original with an authentic sound, Jenny has that rare vocal ability to swing hard in the pocket and hold her own with the best musicians in the business.  Jenny’s commitment to the art form is never more evident than in her third and newest CD release “INSIDE YOU”, where legendary jazz composer Rodgers Grant sought her to record his beautiful ballad “Morning Glory”.  A versatile vocalist, she is highly requested and is considered one of the Pacific Northwest’s top big band vocalists.  A passionate steward of jazz, Jenny passes on the tradition as a jazz educator, and vocal coach.  Davis is inspired by such great jazz vocalists as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Mel Tormé, Shirley Horn, June Christy and Kurt Elling.
“A pure voice and laser like pitch!” (Jazz Times) 
“Vocalese doesn’t get any better than this!” (All About Jazz)
“A welcome addition to the history of jazz vocalists.” (All About Jazz) 
“Stellar vocal jazz...magnificent...talented!” (Smother)
