Photography Exhibit Benefit
June 1 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
WAIF is honored to be selected as one of three local nonprofits to receive a portion of sale proceeds from the upcoming Nature Photography Show at Bayview’s Front Room Gallery in Langley. WAIF’s reception is scheduled for June 1, 5pm-8pm. It is free to attend.
Internationally renowned photographer, author and teacher Keron Psillas will join four Whidbey Island women photographers in a photo exhibit in June that will raise funds for three Whidbey Island non-profit organizations. The nonprofits are WAIF (Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation), the Pacific Northwest Art School and Enzo House.
The show, entitled “The Creative Journey: Engaging our Natural World” will be held at Bayview Corner’s Front Room Gallery off Hwy. 525 at Bayview Road. The local photographers came together three years ago and decided they want their art to make a difference. They are donating 50% of all proceeds to the charities. Receptions for each non-profit are on three consecutive Saturdays in June from 5 pm to 8 pm. Reception dates are June 1st: WAIF, June 8th: Pacific Northwest Art School and June 15th: Enzo House.
Ms. Psillas, who resides in Portugal, will be traveling to the island to teach her annual classes at the Pacific Northwest Art School. Author Nancy McKeithen, speaking of Ms. Psillas’ work, notes “To look at [her photos] is to experience…their rhythm and spirit, their stories. They make you question. They make you look at them over and over. “
Joining Ms. Psillas will be nationally-known fiber artist and photographer Marie Plakos and photographers Marcia Wesley, Julie Boyd and Marsha Morgan. Front Room Gallery hours are 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information contact Marsha Morgan at email@example.com.
