June 2020 First Friday featuring Jeffrey Moose Gallery
Jeffrey Moose Gallery on Bainbridge Island is proud to announce the third Virtual First Friday, with a twist – you can also visit the gallery in person!
Scheduled for this Friday, June 5th, from 6 PM to 8 PM
As the new “normal” begins to dawn on our wonderful island, and businesses begin to re-open to the public, Jeffrey Moose Gallery is kicking it off with his 3rd Virtual First Friday event.
The gallery will also host an in-person reception on First Friday, June 5th from 6 PM to 8 PM -all visitors must wear a face-mask, and the gallery will limit four visitors at a time.
You can also view the event via “virtual tour” on their Facebook page, which will be live-streamed beginning at 6PM. Click here for the link.
In addition, Bergh Images will also be open for an in-person reception from 6 PM to 8 PM, stop by and check out some of the changes they’ve made. All visitors will be required to wear masks, with a limit of five visitors at a time (customers wishing to browse through the gallery’s matted print collections will be provided with disposable plastic gloves).
Jeffrey Moose Gallery is proud to feature the original works of Suquamish artist, Gerry Lonning. Mr. Lonning works in subtle grids with soft shades, often complimented by found images, reflecting a sophisticated understanding of Abstract Expressionism and other modern movements. Mr. Lonning’s works are formal in their deference to the grid, though clever use of warm color and space betrays his romantic side. He breaks from the conceptual with the use of stenciled, stamped and found imagery, most of which is obscure, ironic and just humorous enough to let you off the formal hook.
Mr. Lonning has worked in a variety of ephemeral media, including photocopy reproductions; in 1977 he installed a Xerox-themed show at U.C. Boulder. He came from the Midwest, where he graduated with Honors in Art and Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. In 2009, his LP collage “Milton” was altered and used as the cover for Gypsy Jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers’ second recording, Django’s Tiger.
