ALONG WATER'S EDGE
watercolors by Peggy Woods

FRIDAY MAY 6 from 5 - 7 pm
During First Friday at Greenbank Farm
light refreshments will be served
Rob Schouten Gallery is pleased to welcome Anacortes watercolorist Peggy Woods to her debut showing on Whidbey Island.
Woods’ watercolor paintings skillfully explore the play of light on water, whether glowing with strong contrast or misty and soft, creating tranquil dramas that convey the poignancy of everyday coastal life.
Her paintings are renowned for realism and detail, but her soulful connection to her subjects is what makes them come alive. Woods explains, “I grew up painting and drawing, exploring the woods, creeks and beaches of the west coast, and developed a lifelong love of the natural world.”
Art has always been an integral part of her life, drawing and painting the woods, creeks and coastline of Monterey Bay where she grew up.
Over her 30 year career in fine art, Woods has participated in group and solo shows, winning awards in national juried competitions.
The artist’s reception for Peggy will take place during First Friday at Greenbank Farm on Friday, May 6 from 5 to 7 PM. Light refreshments will be served. The Farm’s other galleries and shops will be joining in the First Friday fun and staying open until 7 PM 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!
