The Island Gallery features internationally
recognized artists whose work takes traditional art forms
in exciting new directions -- wood
furniture and sculpture created from Northwest and exotic
woods; museum quality textile
art (batik, shibori, ikat and other weavings exhibited
as wall hangings and wearables); wood
fired ceramics from the finest potters in America; and
unique jewelry creations.
Our gallery is a destination spot on beautiful Bainbridge
Island, a 35 minute ferry ride from Seattle. Its Pacific Rim
style reflects artistic collaboration across cultures.
The Island Gallery is pleased to announce that it now exhibits
at Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty in downtown
Kirkland (15 Lake Street) in addition to its annex on Bainbridge
Island (271 Madison Avenue South). Sotheby’s, with
offices throughout the United States and globally, is well
known for its promotion of art.
The Kirkland location officially opens the weekend of
March 1-2, 2014. “This is a pivotal retail location
for the city of Kirkland and we’re thrilled that
Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty will anchor
the building with an innovative retail and wine tasting
venue to complement the lifestyle offerings of our community,”
said Ellen Miller-Wolfe, the Economic Development Manager
for the city of Kirkland. The iconic building on Lake
Street has been renovated under the guidance of well known
Seattle architect Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects.
