Event Details

The “Shadows and Light” art exhibition highlights the Showcase Artists, the juried group displaying their work at Northwind Art’s Jeanette Best Gallery. They received an added invitation last spring: interpret the “shadows and light” theme in any way you choose. 

And the art flowed in. A morning sun ablaze, the curvaceous outline of a woman in a dark room, bright rays on stone cliffs — the artists revel in the wide-open concept. More than 40 new works adorn the gallery, along with some 60 creations that are part of the ongoing “Showcase in Bloom” exhibit. 

“It did grab me right away. I love the idea of shadows and light,” said Port Townsend artist Diane Walker. Her paintings “Decisions Decisions” and “Into the Shadows of Time” are among the works in the show. 

The Showcase Artists’ works will stay on view at Jeanette Best Gallery through June 25. The gallery at 701 Water St. is open from noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays. In addition, on Saturday, June 3, it will stay open until 8 p.m. for downtown Port Townsend’s first-Saturday Art Walk.
