OPENING RECEPTION

FRIDAY, AUGUST 7 FROM 5 - 8 PM
 

Take a walk now through the forests and thickets and along rivers and streams of the Northwest through the eyes of one of our region's most talented plein air  painters.

Maples, June    oil on canvas    30 x 40"    $3000

Looking Downstream
oil on canvas   28 x 22"   SOLD 

Hillside with Boughs and Ferns
oil on panel   20 x 16"   $1600

“I like painting things that are challenging. In nature everything is always moving — the water, the leaves, the sun. I’ll look at a scene and think, “How could I possibly paint that?”, Frugé-Brown said. “Typically, what I enjoy painting, has a lot of layers. I like to look past the stuff on the surface to find what is hidden — looking past the weeds to see the foliage, looking past the foliage to discover the branches.”

Alder and Snowberry
oil on wood   19 x 25"   $1800

Riffle
oil on wood   19 x 25"   SOLD

Whether creating a public commission or working on a more intimate oil painting, Kathleen brings the same sense of purpose and passion to her work to awaken in viewers the feeling of connection and wholeness that she feels when she’s painting outside. She strives to make each brushstroke an exuberant and reverent response to nature. 

Uphill Path    oil on paper    14 x 22"    $1400

Two Hemlocks
oil on paper   13 x 11"   $900

Creek  
oil on paper   13.25 x 10. 75"   $900

Frugé-Brown adds, “My hope is to share that with others, through paintings that invite viewers into a special place and moment, and through public art that strengthens and celebrates viewers' connection to their own landscape.”

Rob Schouten Gallery and Sculpture Garden, a premier showcase for Whidbey Island and Northwest artists, is located at Historic Greenbank Farm on scenic Whidbey Island amid rolling hills and forests offering breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic and Cascade mountains. Aside from Rob Schouten Gallery the Farm also houses Whidbey Pies Cafe, Greenbank Farm & Wine Shop, Greenbank Cheese & Specialties Shop, Artworks Gallery and Raven Rocks Gallery & Gifts.

Centrally located at the heart of Whidbey Island, just off Hwy. 525 and Wonn Road at the narrowest point on the island, you can’t miss the open fields and red barns. We are just 18 miles north of the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry, or 10 miles south of Coupeville, with ample free parking.

We look forward to seeing you!
