An exhibition featuring the work of three South Whidbey artists opens next week at Froggwell Gardens in Freeland.

The event is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 26-29, and includes pieces by Teresa Saia, Rebecca Collins and Alicia Elliott.

Saia’s work encompasses the mediums of oil, pastel and watercolor. Known for a fluid, direct style, she captures the attention of many collectors with her expressive use of radiant and rich color. Her paintings explore the worlds she has discovered in her many travels abroad each year, as well as the beauty she finds in the pacific northwest and her home on Whidbey Island, according to a recent news release.

Rebecca Collins is showing new paintings inspired by five months of sailing through British Columbia and Alaska in 2016. Her work was influenced by endless sky and sea, and mountains carved by ancient glaciers.

Alicia Elliott has created a new series based on her passion surrounding trees, mostly those on Whidbey Island. Her work is primarily in oil and impressionistic in style, and continually strives to bring to the surface the emotion that inspires her.

Froggwell Gardens is located at 5508 Double Bluff Road, Freeland. Call Collins at 360-331-2306 for details.
