During May Artworks Gallery will feature Artist Gaylen Whiteman and her “May Madness” show. There will be a First Friday reception at 5-7:30 p.m. on May 6, with light snacks and beverages. Live music will be performed by guitarist Steve DeHaven. Other Artworks Gallery artists will be on hand to greet visitors during the reception.

Gaylen, who typically paints in a realist fashion, has recently been experimenting with abstraction and, as she says, “having a blast”. She says, “I am especially enjoying the contrast between precise and deliberate painting for realism to the pure joy and spontaneity of abstraction”. In her “May Madness” show, Gaylen will devote half of her display to favorite works in realism, and half to favorite and recent abstract art. Her art includes paintings in watercolor, acrylic, and oil.

Artworks Gallery is located on Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island. For more information, visit the web site: or call 360-222-3010.

Open daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
