Rob Schouten Gallery Presents: A Tour of the Gallery’s Sculpture Collection & Garden at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 24.
This event will be led by noted Whidbey sculptors: Dan Freeman, Sharon Spencer and Lloyd Whannell.

On Sunday, April 24 Rob Schouten Gallery is participating in International Sculpture Day, a worldwide annual celebration of sculpture held on this date each year. It was established by the International Sculpture Center and is meant to raise awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of sculpture across the globe.  Whidbey sculptors Sharon Spencer, Dan Freeman and Lloyd Whannell will lead an informal stroll through the gallery and sculpture garden and discuss what makes them tick as artists, and what process they follow to bring their creations into reality.

Sharon Spencer’s sculptures, whether in stone, mixed-media or bronze express a love and affinity for the natural world and its connection to the realm of the spirit. Sculptor Dan Freeman is fascinated with the interaction of textures, colors and forms of a variety of materials as he creates his distinctive indoor and outdoor pieces. Lloyd Whannell’s work, which is done primarily in stone, emanates a feeling of serenity and peace.

This is a rare chance to participate in a dialog on the unique aspects of working in three dimensions. You’ll be able to meet these talented Whidbey sculptors, and to ask them questions about their work and their process. We hope you’ll join us was we celebrate International Sculpture Day!

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. For further information, call 360-222-3070 or email
