The Pop-Up Gallery at Large Art Studios Present
the PNW Artist Showcase: 2019
The PNW Artist Showcase will feature seventeen artists from Bainbridge Island and the surrounding Kitsap area. The exhibition explores the landscape, traditions, politics, and the joy of the region through art—genres will include: photography, painting, printmaking, ceramics, traditional tribal arts, sculpture and contemporary graphic arts.
The show was organized by award winning artists Eileen Wold and Jacquelyn Phillips. Eileen—a resident artist at the Large Art Studios building—hand selected the diverse group of talented artists for their unique vision and strong artistic practice. These artists range from emerging to mid-career and have displayed their works in museums, galleries and local venues. This is the second show that Eileen has organized at the studio.
“I am honored to be showcasing such a large range of talented local artists in this contemporary and vibrant way.”
Exhibiting artists: Chris Demarest, Virginia Davison, Michael Leigh, Toma Villa, Denise Stroughton, Michael Pontieri, Leigh Anne McKeen, Scott Schopman, Jen Colburn, Len Eisenhood, Glenn Prosser, Jacquelyn Phillips, Elena Wendelyn, Gareth Williams, Eileen Wold, Steve Rabago, and Jimmy Price.
