The featured artist for the July show at Orcas Center is B. Sadie Bailey. Her folk art (like the work pictured above) will fill the lobby, but the Visual Arts Committee is soliciting artwork for the “Community Art Show” in the Madrona Room. Art of all kinds is welcome — more folk art would be great, said organizers.
Bailey had the following to say about her work: “I love playing in many media, with subjects from serious to whimsical to abstract. I especially like recycling and repurposing things that might otherwise end up in a landfill. I like not knowing where something is going; I like to be surprised and to follow my imagination where it wants me to go. I enjoy the inclusivity and freedom of eclectic play that folk art offers and why calling myself a ‘folk artist’ or ‘maker’ encompasses what I do.”
Intake for submitted artwork for the July show is July 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
