Thanks to Goosefoot for opening gallery space

Editor,

I’m sure I speak for many in our community when I express appreciation and deep gratitude to Goosefoot for reconstituting the Front Room Gallery at Bayview Cash Store. Thanks to financial underwriting by Goosefoot, artists among us now have a space available at reasonable cost to show their work, either as individual or group exhibits. The added presence of Treasure Trove, curated by Keke Cribbs, offers a shop for local artisans and makers to showcase and sell their goods.

The value of Goosefoot to our communal wellness cannot be fully expressed in these brief lines. An endeavor of community building and social entrepreneurship initially seeded and envisioned by Nancy Nordhoff, brought to fruition under dynamic board stewardship, supported by generous contributions to Goosefoot Fund, and now moving forward under the visionary leadership of Sandy Whiting, Goosefoot is the underpinning of Bayview Corner and Bayview Center: the Bayview Cash Store, the Goose Grocer, the Sears House, as well as South Whidbey school gardens and so much more.

Now with Front Room Gallery, artists have an opportunity to share their creations with the public and perhaps find a springboard to gallery representation or other venues. Exhibits change monthly. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. The month of January showcased an interactive light show, a gift to the community from Goosefoot in the depths of the dark season.

Front Room Gallery is a delight for the senses made possible by Goosefoot. Thank you.
