The Island Gallery has sculpture show opening at First Friday

The Island Gallery will exhibit the art of Northwest sculptors Nathan Christopher and Michelle de la Vega in September.

The show runs Sept. 6-29 and opens with a First Friday artists’ reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6. The opening will feature music from Bainbridge Island’ Peter Spencer and Friends in concert on the plaza.

Christopher and de la Vega present wood, metal and paper sculptures using salvaged and found materials. Their backgrounds in environmental science, film, acting, and dance influence the range of their art.

Christopher’s work merges sustainability and functionality with the aesthetics of unique and artful design. Each piece is conceived and crafted according to the history, nuance and texture of the reclaimed wood used.  Christopher creates furniture with character.

De la Vega is a Seattle-based visual and installation artist, designer and welder. Her design aesthetic has a re-purposed industrial sensibility that reflects a vision of economy, functionality and precise artistic attention to detail.

She makes sculpture, and designs and fabricates custom steel table bases and furniture. She also works in mixed media assemblage, sculpture and installation.

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