Great news for the Whidbey Island artists as a new venue is hosting its second annual art show. The Willows Orchard Art Show will be help on July 8 – 9 at one of the most lovely venues available on Whidbey. Make sure to plan on stopping by from 11AM – 4PM to visit the grounds, see the sights and buy some local art from more than twenty artists, including me! I plan to bring a number of functional art tables that I have created specifically for this event using some of my most precious timbers. Included are Hawaiian koa, big leaf maple, Appalachian black cherry, and Oregon walnut:

Wonderful news in the art world… The Childhood’s End Gallery is celebrating its 50th Anniversary!! Yes, 50 years… Congrats!!
