Valise - The Show

Vashon Jam/Slam/Glam All-Island Art Show

There's a newish gallery on the Island called Valise.  It's run by a collective of great island artists who have come up with a stupendous idea for our community artists: 

It is widely understood, both here and "abroad," that 100 percent of the residents of our island have artistic talent. In the spirit of "What if everyone on Vashon read the same book,"

VALISE Artist Collective and Gallery invited island artists of all ages, experience levels and visions, to bring one original artwork to the gallery.  There was a tremendous response, and more than 100 works of art now hang in the gallery.  One of which is mine:

La Femme

and another is from my talented watercolourist husband:

Ruby Beach

We attended the gala opening and here's a few pics - Boy, was it ever crowded!   I had no idea they could get so much art in the gallery.

And finally another of my favourites:
'The Hunt for the Light is Over'

This show will run throughout the month of July. VALISE gallery is open every Saturday, from 11 am-5 pm, and by appointment.
