The Farm’s other galleries and shops will all be open until 7 p.m. as well. There will be live music in several spots, and delicious food by Island Mexican Food Truck, Whidbey Island Kettle Corn, and of course, dessert at Whidbey Pies Cafe. The show runs Aug. 5- Aug. 29.
Anne Belov’s striking new paintings are the featured show for the month of August at the Rob Schouten Gallery. Reflecting the inspiration she has gained through her extensive European travels. Belov focuses on the architecture, landscape, light, and people she observes, and relishes the art history that abounds there.
“I try to travel with an open mind as to what I will focus on for the resulting paintings,” Belov said. “Each time I’m amazed by the new inspiration in these old countries.”
Belov continues, “I try to portray the bond I feel with my surroundings, whether it’s the home front or the temporary port of my travels. Each group of paintings that I do is a connected story, with the subject of one painting feeding the next.”
For more than 35 years, Anne Belov has concerned herself with the portrayal of light, structure, color, and the specificity of place and time. Landscape, still life and interior imagery are all in her repertoire.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
