Talented trio showcase island-set works at Roby King

A group show of Bainbridge Island landscapes, seascapes and town views by Pamela Wachtler, Ninalee Irani and Robin Weiss will be on display at Roby King Gallery (176 Winslow Way East) Wednesday, July 3 through Sunday, July 28.

A special opening reception will be held during the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, July 5.

All three artists have donated a painting of “Land Trust sites” to the Bainbridge Island Land Trust for its upcoming July fundraiser event.

Wachtler’s understanding of the silvery gray skies and waters of the Northwest are that which give her paintings a warm and enveloping feeling. The impressionistic qualities of this detailed and delicate artwork reflect the tradition of “The Philadelphia Ten,” a group of painters educated in the early 1900s at Moore College of Art, PA.

She was a featured artist at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art’s “Impressions of Place” last year.

Weiss paints the Northwest with unambiguous brush strokes. His genre is many; he is proficient at landscape, still life and figurative subjects. With a comprehensive understanding of color theory and color in nature, his paintings exhibit this mastery.

Working in oil, Irani’s lively still lifes possess a unique visual perspective, traditional yet spirited. Her landscapes often employ a rhythmic staccato brush stroke to express the transient feeling of nature.
