CURRENT FEATURE EXHIBITION

BEAUTY IN THE MOMENT
The Pastels of Annette Hanna

May 1 - June 1 

Friday Night Opening Reception
May 1, 5 - 8 pm

 

Annette Adrian Hanna has a way with a pastel stick. 

Here’s an artist who is able to transport the viewer to landscapes alive with color, while conveying the absolute soft and quiet beauty of Whidbey and surrounding islands.

San Juan Fields   pastel   $750

Remnants   pastel   $1200

Fog at Deception   pastel   $750

Hanna is an award-winning painter in a variety of media, but one of her favorites she said is pastel. Here we are treated to her exquisite pastel agility to create radiant pieces that paint the island in its finest light. 

“My main interests are people and the landscape,” said the artist, who lives mainly in New Jersey, but has long spent summers on Whidbey.  “I love the outdoors and enjoy plein-air painting,” Hanna said. 

Lopez Grasses   pastel   $750

Coming Around   pastel   $750

Marshy Bottom   pastel  $2400

“The beauty of the landscape, to me, has a very spiritual quality. I can go to the same location in different seasons or find a different viewpoint, and it becomes an entirely different painting.”

Hanna is a member of several pastel societies both nationally and regionally, and has been featured in American Artist Magazine, the Best of Pastel II, International Pastel Artist magazine and the Best of America, Pastel Artists, among her other notable achievements.

Please join us for light refreshments and a chance to see this fresh, new show Friday May 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. during Greenbank Farm’s “First Friday at the Farm” event, when the Farm’s  galleries, shops and cafe welcome visitors to enjoy a relaxed afternoon of fine art, good food, lively conversation and natural beauty.


The rest of the gallery is filled with a rich assortment
of glass, jewelry, encaustics, ceramics, woodwork, sculptures,
paintings and prints from our fine artists.

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!
