Brackenwood Gallery

A gallery on Whidbey Island, WA representing the very best in fine arts and crafts from the pacific northwest.


Have you ever pondered a question for a whole year? This year Sharon Shoemaker, Michel Tsouris and Robbie Cribbs delved into the question What is Art? and are ready to present their ideas in a new show at Brackenwood Gallery. The show opens Oct. 1 with an artists' reception from 5-7 pm. On exhibit will be original art, videos produced by each artist, books by each artist and the ever present question for all to answer and think about, What Is Art? This image by Sharon Shoemaker was produced in the camera but photographing driftwood, then turning the camera. Her amazing kaleidoscopic images are a delight to see.

We hope that viewers will think about this question and come up with their own answers. You might even want to share them with us! As the world gets smaller and smaller and we all have more varied experiences, the question takes on new significance. These artists wrestled with the question by meeting regularly to share ideas and worked hard at creating what they think is art throughout the year. In the end, they are asking you the viewers, what do you think is art?  Hope you can come and join in the conversation.

The exhibit continues through October. 31, 2011
