Join us for an artist’s reception from 5 to 7  p.m. on Friday, May 6 during “First Friday at Greenbank Farm” as Rob Schouten Gallery presents “Along Water’s Edge” watercolors by Peggy Woods, running May 6—30. Light Refreshments will be served.  The farm’s other galleries and shops will be joining in the First Friday fun and staying open until 7 p.m. as well.

Rob Schouten Gallery is pleased to welcome Anacortes watercolorist Peggy Woods to her debut showing on Whidbey Island.Woods’ watercolor paintings skillfully explore the play of light on water, whether glowing with strong contrast or misty and soft, creating tranquil dramas that convey the poignancy of everyday coastal life. Her paintings are renowned for realism and detail, but her soulful connection to her subjects is what makes them come alive. Woods explains, “I grew up painting and drawing, exploring the woods, creeks and beaches of the west coast, and developed a lifelong love of the natural world.” Art has always been an integral part of her life. Over her 30 year career in fine art, Woods has participated in group and solo shows, winning awards in national juried competitions.

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 is open daily from 10 a.m.-5  p.m. For further information, call 360-222-3070 or email
