The Flex Gallery
This flexible space provides us the opportunity to highlight new and experimental work, as well as gems from past shows. Housed in an original classroom of the circa 1900 Edison School Boys Workshop. This room has been preserved in its original turn-of-the-century condition. Ranging from a body of work from one artist to a mix of all of our gallery artists, this space is fluid with something new to see every visit.
FROM THE EXHIBIT
Patty Haller’s colorful and analytical paintings explore the beauty, order and chaos of the northwest forest. Andrew Vallee presents new wood and bronze sculptures, a shift towards representation. Man-made natural objects, derived from the shores of the Samish Bay.
Kris Ekstrand is presenting her delicately abstracted landscapes and a continuation of her vibrant and energetic portraits of bird nests. Created in her studio on the banks of the Edison Slough in the Skagit Valley. Ekstrand’s paintings walk a line between abstraction and representation, skillfully drifting between the two. Marceil DeLacy presents her hand-carved wooden sculptures, expertly carved and finely finished. Her work makes one contemplate the human connection to the animal world. In this exhibition DeLacy introduces surprising new subject matter.
