Last week we attended the 8th Annual Washington State juried art show at Collective Visions Gallery, where my piece "Bloom Verdant" was exhibited. Juried by Greg Robinson, Executive Director of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, the show features a wide variety of inspired work by regional artists. The show runs January 24th - February 28th, 331 Pacific Ave.
