The Poppybank Gallery, a modern fine-art photography gallery in downtown Langley, is donating all proceeds from the sale of owner/artist Christopher Evans’ piece “Langley Marina Rays” to the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in memory of Langley resident Paul Schell.
“During our very first Art Walk last summer, Paul and Pam Schell paid us a visit,” says owner/manager Leslie Evans. “Paul expressed his admiration for the piece, and wished us the best of luck. His unexpected passing stunned us, and his life example inspired us to do something positive for the community. We decided we would dedicate the picture in his honor and donate the proceeds to something local. Paul and Pam Schell’s commitment to WICA and our own deep appreciation for the arts made the choice pretty straightforward.
We’ve already sold several copies of the piece,” Evans continues. “It’s a beautiful memento of time spent in our little village-by-the sea.”
A variety of print sizes and formats are available at The Poppybank Gallery. Custom prints can be ordered as well. The gallery also offers free shipping anywhere in the continental U.S.
Winter business hours for The Poppybank Gallery are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Tuesdays through Thursdays. The gallery also participates in the First Saturday Art Walks from 5 to 7 p.m.
