December’s artist blended a tech career with her artistic talents and ended up with works of art that can be months in the making…but they are so worth the wait! Liz Ruest makes her digital collages using a combination of her original paintings and photographs along with scanned images and items which she melds together on her computer. The results are stunning and you can’t help but be drawn in for a closer look.
Congratulations and thank you to the 34 artists and all others who participated in the Guemes Island Art Studio Tour this last weekend. Thank you to all of you who visited the studios and supported this amazing group of talented islanders. Our head count is hardly scientific but Atlas Studio, near the top of the mountain, had a marble counting system that recorded 156 visitors. While we expected 30 artists, four more joined in to be part of the fun and offer their products and creations.
Marietta Harrigan is a painter who beautifully captures her surroundings. Her tools are oils and pastels, and the results are exceptional pieces of art.

Allen Moe is an artist the likes of which people have rarely seen. His mediums include chicken feet, bones, fish parts, road kill, latex caulk, and a cement-like compound. The resulting artwork is unique, to say the least.

Mary Lascelles’ photography is more about the light, shapes, colors, and mood – as opposed to subject – which means we get to see her vision in everything from wildlife and landscapes to portraits and studies of people.
Memorial Day weekend was a great kick-art to summer on Guemes Island (kick-art… kickstart, get it?)! Spring studio tour, Celebrate Guemes, Art Chairs, & more!
What do blue jeans and wine barrels have in common? The obvious answer is nothing, but I’ve recently learned that’s not the case. The answer is Tom Hancock!
