I'll be participating in a group show at Scott Milo Gallery in Anacortes, Washington, from July 6-31, just in time for the Anacortes Art Walk the evening of July 6. 

First Friday Art Walks are back

Join us at the Port on June 1

The second season of Ilwaco Art Walks begins next month, and we couldn't be more excited! To celebrate the return of the first-Friday art strolls, held from 4-7pm at the Port of Ilwaco, we'll have Long Beach Peninsula fiber artist Susan Spence at the gallery June 1 demonstrating her technique for creating exquisite Beach Baskets.

Last year's Art Walks were a blast and we're expecting much the same this time around. So make an evening of it – visit an art gallery or two, get to know some of the business owners, dine just feet from the fishing fleets and rediscover the Port of Ilwaco!
