Quilts, Flowers & More at Gallery 360

If you haven’t yet visited Gallery 360 this month, now is the perfect time. There are still a few more days left to see a unique collection of artistic quilts by Cathryn Zeleny, whose studio is based in the Olympic Peninsula.

She has been in numerous national and international shows and has also been featured in fiber arts and quilting magazines. After seeing Zeleny’s amazing and beautiful quilts, you’ll want to take time to see watercolor and acrylic works by August’s other featured artist, gallery member and president Judith Howard. Both exhibits are open for viewing (and purchasing) through Sunday, Aug. 27.

Northwest Bounty at Gallery 360

As spring ripens into summer, there comes an abundance of Northwest bounty: fresh fruits and vegetables, tress and flowers bursting into bloom, and animals on foot, fin and wing making their way over our landscape, through our waters, and across our sky.

Stop by during the First Friday Artwalk on June 2 to see Northwest-inspired art of all mediums, from both professional and amateur artists. The art you’ll see beautifully depicts the abundance of our region’s foods, flowers, and wildlife—but also the Northwest’s thriving industries, breathtaking recreational opportunities, and entrepreneurial spirit.
