Roby King Gallery presents the exhibition “BIRDLAND!” in May.

The show opens during the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, May 3 and continues through June 2.

Featured artists are Cheri Christensen, Jhenna Quinn Lewis, Barbara French Duzan, Douglas Francis Girard, and Mary N. Balcomb.

Christensen is a former Bainbridge Islander and one of the most popular artists in the gallery.

In the tradition of Russian Impressionism, she concentrates on seeing and conveying the effects of color and light on form.

“People have been connected to animals throughout history, but today our farmland is disappearing,” the artist explained. “I paint animals the way I would any other subject matter. I give them dignity. My paintings are an expression of my feelings toward animals, their close connection to their environment and the drama of light as it plays across their forms.”

Quinn Lewis employs the Dutch masters technique of limiting her

palette to basically four colors from which virtually all others

can be derived. Her oil paintings are beautiful in the simplicity and intriguing by her subjects undertakings.

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.
