The annual Mother Earth Art Show at Blooms Winery opened on March 6th with an artist reception from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. Four artists’ works with a variety of media are on display for the two month long show.
Shell sculptures and pottery are among the many creations that Carol Rhodes of Coupeville will show. Carol uses seashells, driftwood, corral and other seashore findings in her medallions, wreaths and mirrors. Pottery bowls with grape leaf and grapes in relief – a natural fit for the winery tasting room gallery – and greeting cards and bookmarks are also available.
Sharon Tryon is a pastel, watercolor and oil painter, who shows in many galleries in the Northwest as well as the Southwest, where she spends some of her time each year. She paints because it enables her to express her joy in the beauty that God created from crisp fall leaves to the vivid colors of spring flowers. Landscapes, floral prints and animals are among the subjects included in the show.
Anna Davis creates pastels and oil paintings. Raised by nature loving artist parents, she learned a love of art early on. Anna views her painting as a way of slowing down to treasure the world filled with wonder. She studied art in Florence, Italy as well as Gage Fine Art in Seattle. She and her husband have a landscaping business, keeping her centered on her love of nature.
Elizabeth Atly is a new resident of Whidbey from Newport, Oregon. She has exhibited her photography and other artwork extensively in Oregon Coast Galleries. For this show she brings an array of lovely fused glass jewelry pieces, often created with found objects and bits embedded in them for a unique look, as well as photography that encompasses a wide variety of subject matter from beach ephemera to travel exotica.
The show runs through the end of April, and the tasting room is open Thursdays through Mondays for viewing, wine tasting, live music events and more. Call Blooms Winery at 360-321-0515 for more info.
