The Rob Schouten Gallery is presenting an array of adornments in celebration of Valentine’s Day and in correlation with the Second Sunday at the Farm event at Greenbank Farm. During Second Sunday at the Farm, the galleries, shops, cafe and market welcome visitors to come to enjoy art, food and conversation.  The Rob Shouten Gallery will host an artist reception for “Adornment, the Jewelry Show” from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 8. The show features the works of Whidbey artists Tammi Sloan, Barb Mundell, Morgan Bell and Mary Ellen O’Connor, makers of pendants, bracelets and other accoutrements. According to a recent press release, adornment with jewels is a 7,000 year-old practice which was observed in the great queens of Egypt and the Roman Empire as it is in contemporary houses of fashion. “Whidbey Island artists are creating beautiful pieces of jewelry that continue to burst with new ideas of form, color and design in this diverse and decorative art form,” the release states. The show opened Friday and runs through March 2.
