FEATURE EXHIBITION October 7 - 31
DAN FREEMAN - NEW SCULPTURES
Opening Night Reception
Friday, October 7 from 5 - 7 pm
during First Friday's at Greenbank Farm
In his latest sculptures, on exhibit throughout October, artist Dan Freeman further explores juxtapositions of form and material. Characteristic of Freeman’s work is the combination of welded steel and stone, and at times the addition of wood, branches and other materials.
Several new pieces in this exhibition continue his popular Moon Series, others are stream of consciousness assemblages of abstract shapes.
Dan is known for his fresh use of textures, colors and forms which create a dialogue between the artist and the materials used. His distinctive work will be on display in the gallery and in its sculpture garden

Freeman says, “I have been making objects all my life as a way to express my thoughts and feelings. I like to think that I have the soul of a poet but instead of writing I make these feelings into an object. For me it’s a form of meditation. When I am working on a piece I feel a connection to all the hands in the world that create and make.”
The artist’s reception for Dan will take place during ‘First Friday at Greenbank Farm’ on Friday, October 7, from 5 to 7 PM. Light refreshments will be served. The Farm’s other galleries and shops will all be open until 7PM as well.
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!
