Whidbey Art Gallery features Sue Owen
“Big Sur Coast” is the title of the Whidbey Art Gallery show this month featuring local painter Sue Owen.
Owen’s paintings are inspired by the legendary Big Sur coast of central California. This sparsely populated region between Carmel and San Simeon has long attracted painters, photographers, writers and poets for its extraordinary ecological diversity, where fog-loving coastal Redwoods thrive in deep canyons.
The show runs through March 31 at the gallery on Second Street in downtown Langley.
‘New Images’ shows at UUCWI gallery
An exhibit of artwork from South Whidbey High School, Bayview School and Langley Middle School students is at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island Gallery of Art through the end of April.
“New Images” reflects not only the talent of those participating, but also meets the challenge to engage their human capacities of imagination, creativity, emotion, conceptualization and complex problem solving.
UUCWI is located at 20103 Highway 525 north of Freeland.
