From Ashland to Anniversaries & Saving the Arts in April
Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems. - Rainier Maria Rilke

Last month, Carrie flew to Ashland to help establish a new dream studio with a friend. It was a remarkable and inspiring trip spent with a beloved friend in a beautiful farm setting within minutes to downtown Ashland - a mecca for arts of every variety. We see frequent Oregon getaways in her future.
Back in Poulsbo we are ready to celebrate our two-year anniversary this April and will be participating in a special Poulsbo Save KPLU event Thursday, April 28th. Check it out at http://www.visitkitsap.com/save-kplu and save the date. A live music stage downtown, wine and live music in the galleries, raffle prizes and promotions galore. All for KPLU radio station and broadcasters. We will be hosting well known artist, Max Hayslette who will be signing complimentary poster prints of his modernistic works. Our gallery will also be donating 10% of all sales made between 5 and 8 pm. Now is your chance to help save KPLU, go home with new art and have fun doing it!
If you are not able to make this special evening, maybe ArtWalk this coming Saturday, April 9th between 5 and 8pm works better in your schedule. Opportunites for art abound. Meet Max Hayslette and receive a complimentary signed poster. And as usual, all the Front Street galleries in downtown Poulsbo will be open late for your enjoyment.
Another event coming up May 4th is Girls Night Out, a Main Street Program event where local businesses offer specials and attractions that go above and beyond - just for the ladies. Between 5 and 8 pm at the gallery, all Charlie Goller's jewelry will be discounted 25% AND you will be entered into a drawing for one of his hand-wrapped pendants. Ladies, this one's for you! As usual, Poulsbo puts this event to use for a good cause - when you shop during Girls Night Out, a percentage of your purchase is going directly to helping build Morrow Manor, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence.
Carrie Goller Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday 11:00am to 5:30pm. Located in historic downtown Poulsbo, the gallery features a mix of contemporary fine art from small to large-scale, in a variety of media including oil, encaustic, mixed-media and egg tempera. We work closely with each individual buyer to satisfy their particular needs, including special orders, gift wrapping, shipping, installation or even interior design consultations.
Wishing you an amazing April,
The staff of Carrie Goller Gallery
