Save the date! July 11th from 7 pm to 9 pm, Pynelogs asks you to join us for the Artist pARTy Soiree to give a warm welcoming to the local artists. There will be a cash bar, lively music, pleasant company, and stunning artwork.

Amongst the artists being showcased are Gerry George whose pottery incorporates the outdoors by the use of organic shapes and designs; Kimberly Olsen expresses her beliefs and views of the world through her drawings and paintings, titled Awkward; Mary Kate Woodward whose focus is on the simplification, abstraction and exaggeration of lines in her drawings; Angelique Gillespie shares her personal creative journey through her abstract paintings; and Jim Lawrence’s photography strives to explore and instill understanding of our wilderness. If you cannot make it for the Soiree, don’t worry this show will be available at Pynelogs until July 30th!

The annual Art Walk begins tonight! Get ready to fill up those Passports with stamps from each of your travel destinations. Take a stroll through town to explore what Pynelogs Art Gallery, Bavin Glassworks, Artym Gallery, Black Star Studios, Effusion Art Gallery + Glass, and Village Arts Society have to offer. The Art Walk will take place every Friday in July and August from 4pm-8pm.
