In March, Gallery North will feature the artwork of a group of 12 special artists who are friends and former gallery members in a show called “Select Invitations”. This show is to honor each of them in preparation for our 60th Anniversary coming in July 2021!  Each of the artists will be showing a small grouping of their work including wall art and small works in their chosen medium representing their own unique visions of the world.

The exhibited pieces will include oil and acrylic paintings by Joyce Donaldson, Janet Hawse, Karen Kahn-Rice, Jolyn Wells-Moran, and Lyla Jacobsen. Working in watercolors are Mary Anderson and Catherine James. Cheryl Hufnagel will be displaying her pastel paintings. There will also be colored pencil pieces by Paula Parks and watercolor and mixed media art by Alice Owen. Many of these talented artists are well-known throughout the Pacific Northwest. As a special bonus, we also have several wonderful potters, Rupa Palasamudram and Kerry Kakigi, whose works were recently shown at Cascadia.

“We all see the world through our own eyes, so this will be a beautiful and interesting collection of visual and functional art,” says Gallery North president, Lonni Flowers

Most Saturdays, we will have one or more of the artists present to meet the public and visit about their art. There may also be a demonstration during these “mini-receptions”. These events are open to the public so come meet the artists.

Gallery North Re-Opens from COVID-19 with Dreams and Meditation Themed Three-Artist Show

Gallery North, long a favorite art destination in downtown Edmonds, is ushering in its post-pandemic presence with a three-artist show featuring unique views and reflections on local scenes and classic, dream-like colors.

Digital artist Anne Prather brings her vivid sense of color and composition to the idea of dreams and their relation to real life. “Dreams take us outside ourselves,” she says, adding that, “Especially after this winter, we all yearn to step beyond the purely mundane.”

Prather is joined by the husband and wife team, photographer Jeff Harrison and acrylic artist Jurate Harrison, whose work completes the theme of dreams and meditations with its compositional manipulation of concrete scenes to produce innovative and unique perspectives.

We invite you to visit our featured show in person or on our website, on display until June 30.
