Retrospective of William F. Reese plein air art coming to Bainbridge gallery

Roby King Gallery will present “William F. Reese – A Retrospective Exhibition” in August.

William F. Reese celebrated the Pacific Northwest with majestic landscapes, delicate still lifes, and chronicles of the lives of the men, women and creatures that inhabited the area.

Though prolific and proficient in several media, Reese was likely best known as one of America’s premier plein air artists, reveling in the majesty of the Northwest and setting up his easel outdoors in all kinds of weather and in every kind of location.

Roby King Gallery will exhibit many of the remaining works of the artist for its August show, and the gallery thanks Fran Reese for allowing the ballery to exhibit her husband’s art.

The exhibition opens during First Friday, and a reception is planned for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2.

Roby King Gallery is located at 176 Winslow Way East. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
