From Aug. 1-31, Rob Schouten Gallery in Langley will present new paintings by painter Alfredo Arreguín.

At 85, Alfredo still paints daily and continues to engage the audience with a range of intriguing paintings that further explore his portrayal of Frida Kahlo and others, as well as Mayan and Northwest mythological motifs.

The Seattle-based artist’s colorful pattern paintings radiate an ethereal presence that transport the viewer to a plane of spirit and mystery.

The exhibition consists of 19 new and recent paintings that can be seen on the gallery’s website as well. www.robschoutengallery.com

The exhibit “Facade: What Lies Beneath the Surface,” featuring paintings by Anne Belov, continues through July 28.

Gallery visitors are required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Call 360-222-3070 or go to www.robschoutengallery.com

In order to safely reopen, the gallery was thoroughly cleaned and a Plexiglas counter shield installed to allow safe purchasing. A maximum of six visitors at a time will be allowed in the gallery.

Rob Schouten Gallery, 101 Anthes Ave., is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday.

“The Hour After Westerly” is free to view online until Jan. 17.

Currently identified as Sandy Point, this name has been given to many places on the shores of Washington State. The most historic one is on Whidbey Island, at the southwestern entrance to Saratoga Passage. It was the site of a centuries old permanent Snohomish Tribal Village and a major Potlatch Center. Its clam beds drew indigenous visitors as far away as the central coast and Snohomish River valley. Captain George Vancouver noted in his journals that Master Joseph Whidbey saw over 200 people at this site when his ship circumnavigated the Island in 1791. Photo provided.
