CURRENT FEATURE EXHIBITION
INTO THE GARDEN
Prints by Rob Schouten
Rob Schouten Gallery kicks off its 2016 season with an exhibition of magic realist images by its namesake.
January 15 - February 29
Friday, Feb. 5 from 5 to 7 pm
During “First Friday at the Farm”
Light Refreshments will be served.
Into the Garden is a rare opportunity to see a complete selection of Schouten’s prints both of earlier watercolors and more recent oil paintings. And as an added plus we are offering a 10% discount on all prints through the month of February, making this the perfect time to take home your favorite images.
"My paintings are carefully crafted to instill a sense of wonder and mystery, and designed to reveal the esthetic beauty and radiance of ordinary things," Schouten said.
"Nature is my deepest source of inspiration, as are quantum physics and the stars of the night sky. Symbolism is the language I use to communicate."
With over thirty years experience and his well-honed skills for detail and design, Rob is able to take the viewer to places imagined as only a magic-realist could. His journey as an artist has been inspired by Escher, Dali, Magritte, and the 19th century Symbolist artists, but even more so by the works of Carl G. Jung, Joseph Campbell and his own studies of Eastern traditions.
This exhibit and its accompanying 10% discount on Schouten prints will last through February 29. In addition to the featured exhibit, we will also be showing a broad selection of art by our 30 gallery 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!
