About the Show:
Symbolically, July is the month of change and transformation, inevitably bringing with it a certain whimsy that naturally overtakes creative minds during the warmer months. This can lead us down many interesting pathways, as will be on display in this Gallery artists’ show of work inspired by the ease and light of summer, in the genres of Paintings and Prints, Studio Furniture and Sculpture, and Wearable Art.
Introducing jewelry artist Beverly Sokol, who works with simple tools and raw materials such as gold, silver and wood to create unique contemporary jewelry designs.
Visit the Gallery in person, as well as our brand new Artists' Page on the Website and extensive Online Shop.

Paintings & Prints:
|Jan Branham, Tulips|
Karen Chaussabel describes herself as "a mixed media artist in the making." Currently living on Bainbridge Island, Karen originally hails from France. She infuses her work with the nature and countryside of her youth, allowing her life experiences to impact her work. Karen works primarily in encaustic, pen and pencil, with mixed media. Along with her abstract and landscape work Karen presents a series of fruit- and vegetable-like forms, that give suggestions of the harvest, the heart's attachment to it, light, and summer. (No show image available at this time; please click to visit her Artist Pages.)
|Pam Galvani, Paros|
Pam Galvani : For many years, Pam taught history, calligraphy and English. Primarily a printmaker today, Pam has also been a calligrapher for 40 years, incorporating gestural marks in her work. She is inspired by reading or hearing words, phrases or stories that resonate with her and by abstracting the original text, she hopes to discover and reveal ideas that go beyond what legible words may communicate. She travels widely and her art has been shown nationally and locally, including Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
|Meg Hartwell, Space and Time|
|Renee Jameson, Red Mountain|
Renee Jameson: Renee is a monotype artist and currently the printmaker liaison for the BARN (Bainbridge Artisan ResourceNetwork). Her work is represented in private collections in California and Bainbridge Island. She is inspired by the landscapes of Bainbridge and California, and tries to create a world that viewers can interpret and respond to in their own way. She considers herself an abstract artist and hopes to create a mood and atmosphere that will evoke an emotion or memory in the viewer.
|Kathryn Lesh, Urn|
Kathryn Lesh is a printmaker who is obsessed with the drama of light and the construction of space, which are starting points from which she explores the line between the abstract and the figurative. Her images capture people and moments that are abbreviated and abstracted enough to invite broad interpretation.
Wood & Steel Sculpture:
|Sean Carleton, Shelf no. 23|
Sean Carleton is a multi-disciplinary artist creating work in Bothell, Washington. A Washington native who has a lifelong passion for creating with his hands, his work ranges from unobtrusive yet sophisticated metalwork which supports beautiful Northwest hardwoods, to sculpturally artistic, dramatic metalwork as the emphasis of the piece. Carleton has been recognized for furniture design and quality by the Bellevue Art Museum and Northwest Woodworkers Gallery.
|Marceil Delacy, En Pointe|
|L. Wendy Dunder, Untitled|
Bill Galvani, whose professional background is as a museum director, carves using the traditional tools of drawknife, spokeshave, wood rasp, and knife. He prefers basswood, a hardwood that holds detail and takes a blade well. Carving shorebirds and ducks has encouraged him to study them, which has led him to participate in conservation activities that preserve birds and their habitats. (No show image available at this time; please click to visit his Artist Pages.)
Jeff Harmes (Biographical information and image available shortly.)
|Peter Nawrot, Charcuterie Board|
Peter Nawrot: Originally from eastern Washington, near Spokane, Peter has been working as a high-end cabinet maker in the Seattle area. He is a passionate wood expert and real enthusiast on all wood types and specializes in figured woods from the Northwest. He is now working on contemporary sculptures as well as functional pieces like food-related cutting boards, charcuterie boards, chopsticks and jewelry boxes. His style may best be described as minimalism, featuring sleek, uncluttered lines and understated elegance.
