Rob Schouten Gallery is delighted to present new work by four highly accomplished local artists in the upcoming show “Silk, Sumi, & Ceramics,” which opens Oct. 2 and runs through Nov. 2.

Keiichi Nishimura, who is known for his exquisite mixed media paintings on silk, will be joined by sumi painter Angie Dixon. What these two artists share is the use of time-honored, traditional techniques while applying their own modern interpretations.

Gifted ceramicists Joan Govedare and Dan Ishler both prefer the raku pit firing process as part their method. While the firing technique is similar, the two artists’ pottery looks completely different and unique in style.

Please compare and contrast the work of these talented local artists as you join us for an Artist’s Reception from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2 during Greenbank Farm’s “First Friday at the Farm.” The galleries and shops welcome visitors to enjoy refreshments, meet the featured artists and enjoy some beautiful art—all while roaming around Greenbank Farm on a lovely fall evening.

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. Gallery Hours beginning in October are 11 to 5 weekdays, 10 to 5 weekends, and we are closed on Tuesday. For further information, call 360.222.3070 or email
