In the Art Bar - International Women's Day

In celebration of International Women’s Day, March 8th, the Lincoln Gallery, through out the month of March, will be showcasing powerful women of Skagit Valley, their art and their ability to connect.  Women, as natural communicators and organizers, are often at the hub of the wheel.  This show not only spotlights women of artistic talent, but also women that have made their life their art.  Their knack for creation goes beyond traditional arts and crafts and is reflected in their livelihoods, their community activism, their homes, and their relationships:

In the Art Bar: Don Willcuts

Don Willcuts has been an artist since he could scratch lines in the dirt. He loves the ladies & everything that is beautiful - even things some might consider ugly. Most of his pieces are illustrations from his own stories. He believes we are all co-creator of our realities. He feels that if you are chosen to be enlightened by the source of creation, you have been given the keys to a multitude of potentials. There are no mistakes, the process is the perfection.

In the Art Bar: Don Smith

Don Smith Watercolor painter
Reception with the Artist on Friday, January 18th 6:00 - 7:30 
 I love to make art!
 I had the opportunity to learn some watercolor technique from Val Welman and George Tsutakawa, my professors in Western and Japanese Watercolor painting at the University of Washington  School of Art back in the 1970s.
I wish that I had studied techniques in that medium more, as I’m largely self-taught and often come up short of what I’m trying to achieve.

I have MS degrees in education and recreation therapy, but art and the outdoors are my passion. I have always enjoyed art and have dabbled in various media over the years:  drawing, colored pencil, watercolor, pottery, Sumi-e, and most recently collage.

In the Art Bar - Deirdre Czoberek

Artist Reception Saturday, October 5th 5:00 - 7:00pm
Deirdre Czoberek grew up in a home where art was just as important as food. Both parents were visual artists and on a constant quest for physical and spiritual beauty. Every surface in the house was subject to beautification and embellishment - cars and refrigerators included. They were a mighty influence indeed.
