Heron’s Nest will feature Valentine’s Day jewelry.

Island Quilter will exhibit 40 quilts in “Kaffe Fasset: The Student Works.” In the realm of textile art, Kaffe Fassett is a world-renowned artist and designer. On Vashon, he’s all of that plus a guest lecturer and teacher to island quilters. This show will display quilts made by Kaffe’s students on Vashon and other regions as well.

Our Community Credit Union, housed in the former Bank of America building, will host an exhibit of watercolor prints by artist Donna Botten.

Raven’s Nest will celebrate love in Northwest Coast Native style with prints, cards, blankets and sand jewelry featuring the traditional design of the Raven & Eagle, the lovebirds of the Northwest coast natives. Raven’s Nest will also offer a heart collection of handmade chocolates.

The Hardware Store Restaurant will show work by Robert Leung. Leung may be new to Vashon, but not to his chosen work as a visual artist, sculptor and designer. Leung’s visual vocabulary combines primitive aspects of the Caribbean with the iconic symbolism of pop culture. About his show, “The Heart of Man Project,” Leung said in a recent email, “I started exploring these images as the result of a broken love affair that took me deep into the labyrinthine ways in which men experience love. Not the stereotypical hallmark idea that permeates our concept of love, but the more ironic, edgier side.”

Two Wall Gallery will have an encore opening of Two Asian Gardens. Discover the beauty of Seattle’s Chinese Garden in moonlight and the classic look of the Japanese Garden in fall foliage.  Island photographer Ray Pfortner will be on hand to answer questions about the gardens and your photography. Bring your camera, some photographs and your questions.

The Vashon Allied Arts Gallery opens with “Snitzels, Small Fiber Expressions” and music by Stardust Trio (Steve Touger, Steph Meyer and Ike Harmon). Snitzels is a group of seven Northwest fiber artists (Jean B. Mills, Becky Kaufman, Carolyn Hall, Kari Hailey, Kimberly Tepe, Louise Roby and Rene Jasper) who share the common theme of using a small format but employing a variety of textiles and textures, colors and concepts.

Vashon Golf & Swim Club will exhibit oil paintings by island artist Valerie Wilson.

Vashon Senior Center will offer its popular baked potato bar. Sharon Hines-Pinion’s paintings of birds and animals will continue to be shown.
