Bayview gallery’s theme adds new flavor

Bayview Cash Store’s newest art show has a special twist.

Located in the Hub Gallery now through Feb. 23, a doughnut-themed show sponsored by Whidbey Doughnuts in collaboration with the Goosefoot Community Fund will benefit youth nonprofit organizations with its proceeds.

These recipients include the HUB After School Program, Ryan’s House for Youth and Whidbey Children’s Theatre.

Many of the participating artists are teens and young adults who have made their mark on the omnipresent roll of butcher paper hanging in the entry of Whidbey Doughnuts this past year.

Although submissions are officially closed for the Hub Gallery’s art show, interested artists may still create and display doughnut art within Whidbey Doughnuts.

They must come to the doughnut shop to create their art, and including doughnuts in their opuses is a requirement. The rest is up to the artist. Participants can also sign up in advance for a two-week display slot in the store.

Donart for a Cause in the Hub Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
