May, 4-26 2012 Diane Ainsworth / David Turner / Pertaining to the Sea
"Pertaining to the Sea" is an exhibition about life around the Puget Sound, working on the water, playing on the water, or just viewing the water. Northwest painters Ainsworth and Turner capture the ever changing mood of the skies and seas of this very unique region. www.dianeainsworth.com
We are very pleased to bring this exhibit to Bainbridge Island in June. We personally viewed this exhibit in Sun Valley in January and were moved and impressed by the design and craftsmanship of these artists from the Buku Larrngay Mulka Art Center, of Yirrkala, Northern Territory in Australia. We will host this exhibit for the month of June only, this is the perfect time to add to your collection. Also of note at the Seattle Art Museum Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection May 31–September 2, 2012. Plan on a visit to Seattle and Bainbridge Island in June for this unique exhibit. http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/exhibit/exhibitDetail.asp?eventID=21215

Marty Rogers E.L. Jorgensen
This month at Bainbridge Homes we feature Watercolors by Marty Rogers and Oil paintings by E.L. Jorgensen of Whidbey Island. Rogers a lifelong watercolorist creates classic compositions with a palette of wonderful complex, earthy colors. With a nod to Andrew Wyeth, great light and shadows streak across West coast farmhouses. Jorgensen came to painting later in life, his training by way of photography which taught him composition and color. A deliberate stillness
is present in his work, his paintings are "stop action" creations. And the two artists are happily married!
