Main Gallery Featured Artist

Alan Newberg
Up Close: Abstractions in Wood

Alan Newberg will present a show of dramatic, large and small scale recent sculptures executed in fine woods in his July feature show at Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton. The sculptures will explore the acts of visualization and imagination using abstract and semi-abstract form that springs from and significantly alters the natural form from the source material. At times the results are very geometric and in other cases are organic, even anthropomorphic, or even sculpted by nature. They juxtapose bold with subtle, weight with lightness, void with volume inviting and defying interpretation. The woods include black walnut, English walnut, Douglas fir and sequoia red wood. The pieces range in size from 15 inchs to nine and one half feet tall. This large show will extend into the Board Room Gallery on the lower level.
 
The artist will present a FREE gallery talk in the gallery on Saturday, July 15th at 2 pm where he will discuss his creative process and sources for his ideas as well as explain and demonstrate his techniques. Questions will be encouraged.
 
A FREE guided one hour meditation in the gallery surrounded by Kirtan music and art led by Jyoti Simodi of Dharma Sound Yoga and Kirtan at 2 pm on July 29, the final day of the exhibit.

Boardroom Gallery Show

Wayne Foster

Since leaving WSU in 1965, I hadn't painted but very sporadically for about 45 years. After major back surgery in 2012, I decided to start painting again to keep my spirits up. I usually make my paintings from actual experiences, but I also sometimes use photographs.

Concert

Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
September 16, 7-9 pm

Poulsbo based Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy Jazz. At the heart of their sound is Ranger's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations. The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, and the music of Django Reinhardt.
