Art & Wine {09.01.16}

Kick off this Labor Day Weekend by joining us this First Thursday, September 1st, for our monthly Art & Wine Tasting event, hosted at the SZ Gallery on Mercer Island. The Islander will be pouring wine tastings paired with seasonal bites.

Oil Paintings by Victoria Johnson, Featured Local Artist
Since, the late 70's, Johnson has been making paintings considered formal and lyrical. Free-flowing, organic forms drift in and out of her canvases’ planes, creating enticing visual rhythm and movement.The placement of shapes lend the idea of landscapes to these abstracts, yet their enigmatic colors and forms keep the work abstract and modern. Her paintings aim to Post-Modernism with an indulgent chromatic palette. 

Oil Paintings by Gitte Peters, European Artist
A gifted artist with the ability to feel and portray images and thoughts beneath the surface. A visionary with the ultimate message of love, peace and happiness.

ASH + AMES Jewelry (Fall Collection) by Jennie King, J | King Styling
ASH + AMES empowers female artisans around the globe, gives back to developing countries, and creates a platform for women to launch their own independent businesses.
