Rob Schouten Gallery is pleased present the work of well known Whidbey artists, Buffy Cribbs and Bruce Morrow with an artist’s reception during First Friday at Greenbank Farm from 5 – 7 p.m. on Friday, April 1. Light refreshments will be served. All of the Farm’s small businesses get in on the “First Friday at the Farm” fun staying open until 7 p.m. Please come and celebrate April Fool’s Day with us!
This couple’s work compliments each other and creates a colorful and witty exhibition with paintings and mixed media works, running April 1 — May 2.
When asked about her work, Buffy said “In so much as one is the sum of one’s experience, one’s art is likely to be that also. I believe that good art resonates with some innate truth. This is a quality which is essential to meaningful art; the successful handing over of an idea from one being to the next.”
Bruce describes his work in this show in this way, “Living in the Northwest somehow made me nostalgic for the Southwest. I started painting figurative images in oils. I like oils because of the quality of the colors.” He adds, “My work is very narrative; there’s always the beginning of a story there. So each time I do an image, there’s the possibility that the ending will change.”
Rob Schouten Gallery, a premier showcase for Whidbey Island and Northwest artists, is located at 765 Wonn Road, #C-103 at the historic Greenbank Farm. The Gallery’s winter hours are weekends 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays by appointment only.
