Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

Goller - Myrtle, oil 16x16
This wonderful start of the summer season has been full of birds and beaches. A trio of Carrie Goller's signature hummingbird paintings (Myrtle, Tinka, and Firecracker) have graced us with their presence here in the gallery. These birds are sure to fly off the walls, so come on down to catch them before they are gone! Max Hayslette is continuing to explore the rocky beaches in his most recent additions to the gallery. He perfectly captures that breathtaking first glimpse of Ruby Beach through the trees in his aptly named piece Ruby Beach.
Hayslette - Cape Flattery No. 2
This coming Saturday, June 10, 5-8pm, please mark your calendars for Second Saturday Artwalk! Max Hayslette will be autographing complimentary posters of Cape Flattery No. 2 (shown above) and showing his latest work. Please join us and all the fine art galleries on Front Street for wine and fun.
There is an awesome Print Sale happening this month! Max Hayslette's large prints have never been on sale before, so this is a special opportunity. In addition we have a fresh batch of prints of his more recent work - including lots of snow capped mountains and scenic shores. Carrie Goller's 8x10 matted and framed prints are on sale as well, with many of her new works represented. She also has brand new framed mini-prints available in the gallery and at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, as well as HeyDay Farms(examples below). These would all make great gifts for a special person...(hint hint - Father's day is next Sunday June 18).
Goller - Selection of Framed Mini-Prints
We are excited to announce that our very own gallery owner/artist Carrie Goller has been featured in the May issue of American Art Collector in the Coast to Coast section. Way to go Carrie! A copy of the magazine and the article is at the gallery, and we will be putting it up on the website soon.
Carrie Goller is happy to donate to this weekend's annual Bainbridge Island Museum of ArtArt and Experiences Auction Weekend two paintings - Rusty and Earthsky V, as well as an art experience. Carrie will be teaching another class at beautiful Wacky Nut Farm on Bainbridge Island, which includes a dinner with Chef Greg Atkinson of Restaurant Marche. Carrie Goller Gallery would like to encourage you to support the arts, our wonderful free museum and attend, it's a great event and commences this coming Friday evening.
