Next month’s group exhibition at the downtown Winslow Roby King Galleries will feature a good group of artists working for a good cause.

“It’s a group show, but one of our Bainbridge Island artists, Mark Norrander, came up with an idea to benefit Bainbridge Island Museum of Art,” explained gallery owner Andrea Roby-King.

“Our gallery is somewhat unique in that we pay our artists 60 percent. Most galleries everywhere split 50-50. Once upon a time, as artists on the other side, we could relate so when we opened the gallery almost 25 years ago we chose to be 60-40. Norrander’s idea was to donate that extra 10 percent difference to our new museum during the month of September,” she said.

The total funds will, at the end of the month, be donated by the artists to BIMA.

“Our artists all understand and respect what the museum means to this community,” Roby-King said. “We hope our customers will be inspired to know that any purchase of original art by our Washington state artists will contribute to the museum and ultimately to the community.” The show will be on display Friday, Sept. 5 through Saturday, Sept. 27.

Roby King Galleries is located at 176 Winslow Way E.
