'Spring' in our step

Gallery open, market in May, new art



Gallery now open Friday & Saturday, 11am-4pm


Randy and I reopened the gallery earlier this month after spending winter in New Zealand and, boy, does it feel good to be back!

Old friends, new faces, art events, clam digging, Cape D hikes … it's been a busy and exciting past month or so! And things should only get better. 

Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco kicks off May 4 and will be held every Saturday into September, weather permitting. And then First Friday Ilwaco Art Walks at the port begin in June. And that's just Ilwaco. 

Almost every spring and summer weekend on the Long Beach Peninsula features something fun to do. Now's the time to visit the coast!

Artwork abounds!

Saturday Market returns

Popular Port of Ilwaco event begins May 4

Mark your calendars for the May 4 return of the Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco. Happening each Saturday from May to September, the Saturday Market draws crowds of locals and visitors to the Port of Ilwaco from 10am to 4pm. 

You're bound to find a little bit of everything, from fresh local produce and hot bites like salmon chowder to handicrafts, clothing and, of course, fine art!
In the Gallery
The gallery features luscious pottery by Long Beach Peninsula artist David Campiche. The colors, craftsmanship and style must be seen in person!
Susan Spence's handmade Beach Baskets have become a gallery fixture. Made by hand from found fishing rope, Susan's baskets weave fine art and coastal conservation. 
'Festival of Kites' in Raymond

One of my "Festival of Kites" monoprints can now be seen at Pacific Fine Art in Raymond, Wash.

The downtown gallery is also featuring my pieces "Silhouette", "Trail Map", "Journey" and "Landscape".

Pacific Fine Art is open Thurs-Sat.

Folks are encouraged to bring gloves, basic weeding tools and trash pick-up tools. Volunteers meet at 10 a.m. each day in the parking lots next to the pharmacy.

Tall ships visit port in May

The Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington tall ships plan to visit Ilwaco from May 10-12. You can tour the ships while they're at port or embark on an Adventure Sail or Battle Sail.

Another Happy Customer

No customer to show this month, but there is a happy art enthusiast out there who recently purchased my piece "Rings of the Ancients I" that had been showing at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Ore.

The artwork was part of the Spirits of the Ancients exhibit at RiverSea Gallery, where you can still see a number of my related "Rings of the Ancients" pieces.

Below are photos from the exhibit.

Featured Art: 'Yellow Lilies'

With spring in the air and Easter still on the mind, I thought "Yellow Lilies" would be an appropriate piece to feature in this e-news. See it in the gallery or view it online. Below are two new floral pieces from my studio more spring flowers!
