The Island Gallery presents “Awakenings,” oils and small works by Bainbridge Island artist Jen Till, from April 5 through April 21.

An opening reception is 6 to 8 p.m. First Friday, April 5 and will feature a musical performance by Peter Spencer and friends.

Till spent her childhood years in a seaside village, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass., and her love of painting began at a young age. She went on to the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied painting and textiles.  After graduating, Jen moved to Santa Fe, N.M. where she began to explore painting the vast landscape and light of the Southwest.

Eventually making her way to the West Coast, she now lives, paints, teaches and works as a freelance textile designer on Bainbridge Island.

The Island Gallery is at 400 Winslow Way E., Suite 120.
