An art show for everyone


Outside In, a gathering of photographs by Kerry Tremain and Brian Goodman and sculptures by Sara Mall Johani and the late Tom Jay, is a full-fledged experience with nature; and a chance to slow down and dive in, according to a release from Northwind Art. 

Tremain's good friend Chuna McIntyre, a Yup'ik artist from Eek, Alaska, shared songs and stories to welcome the community on Art Walk night earlier this month.

Both Tremain and Goodman will give informal artists' talks at 3 p.m.  Saturday, Aug. 5. An evening lecture with the two photographers is also planned. More information is available on Northwind Art's social media for more during Outside In's run. 

If you’re looking for a family-friendly afternoon surrounded by beautiful art the gallery is looking for a summer art-camp counselor to work with young people and their downtown galleries and their art school at Fort Worden State Park. 

Northwind Art supplies the training and support for their volunteers receive a 10 percent discount on courses and workshops. Email for details.

Read was one of Virginia's teachers at Northwind. and  Ashby is exhibiting her color-saturated artwork in this summer’s show. Explore Grover Gallery Thursdays through Mondays until July 30.  

Kate Lovejoy and Dana Sullivan host an hour of creative play for children and adults twice more this season: Aug. 22 and Sept. 19, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Materials are provided and no art experience is necessary. 

"Come have some fun, while experimenting and getting to know each other in a new way. We have two spots waiting for you,” Sullivan said.
