SEQUIM — Showcased in the front windows of the Blue Whole Gallery this month are featured artists Suzan Noyes and Dennis (Doc) Pangborn.
Both are well-established painters known for their artwork closely associated with nature. They are showcasing unique pieces in the front windows in October, the season of the harvest, organizers said.
The gallery, at 129 W. Washington St. in Sequim, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Facial covering and social distancing are required in the gallery.
Noyes said she uses pastels and acrylics to capture favorite subjects such as trees.
“If my work has you climbing some branches, shades you along a forest or river walk, or catches your eye with leafy color, I’ve painted the right tree for the job,” she said. “Weathered bones of old vehicles and buildings also catch my eye — all those angles.”
Pangborn, a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, said he is “daily struck by the beauty and diversity of the animal and plant kingdom here.”
“Having seen so many beautiful gardens, flowers and lavender farms in the area, I’ve been inspired to dip my toes into the world of impressionist-style florals and landscapes,” he said. “I also like to experiment with biomorphic shapes and multiple perspectives points in my abstract paintings.”
