First Friday features art by all ages
For instance, a notable show at Vashon Community Care will feature photography created by both VCC residents and Harbor School students in an intergenerational workshop with Chris Beck and Ray Pfortner. Self-portraits will also be on display, created in another intergenerational workshop led by Jeffrey Zheutlin.
Bird art by fourth-grade students at Chautauqua Elementary will be on display at the Vashon Bookshop, and McMurray Middle School students will display self-portraits — some created with oil pastels and others by making masks out of gourds — at the Heron’s Nest. All of these works were made in Vashon Artists in the Schools projects.
VALISE will offer “The Art of Work and Invention,” its third all-Island exhibition. The show will feature home-designed tools and inventions, both actual and imagined, created by a diverse group of Islanders.
Plenty of art by seasoned professionals will also be on display.
At Island Quilter, quilts by Katie Pedersen, a member of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild, will be on the walls, and Café Luna will exhibit landscapes and portraits by Kathy Larsdotter.
And at the Blue Heron, there will be a sumptuous selection of paintings by Janice Wall, photography by Tina Carter and ceramics by Jan Crocker.
Barnworks (see story, page 1), The Hardware Store Restaurant and Shotridge Studios (see previous page) will also be open for First Friday.
