We have a very special show opening on First Friday Feb. 3rd "From Bow to
Stern" featuring the latest collection of oil paintings by Oleg Ulitskiy.

Oleg's latest work came from a deep and lifelong love of the sea. Born and
raised in Odessa, Ukraine he grew up next to the Black Sea. As an adult
Oleg spent years working on ships traveling the world. He eventually went
back to his first love, painting, and moved to the US over a decade ago.
Last summer Oleg began to paint his latest series of plein air paintings
which took him back to his love of the sea. From August through December,
Oleg would travel several times a week to the coast from his home in
Ridgefield, Washington. He would work from sunrise to sunset, often times
working on multiple paintings each day. Spending his days painting
everything from small fishing boats to large cargo ships and everything in
between, Oleg was able to capture the beauty that lies along the piers and
in the bays and ports of the Pacific Northwest.

The show runs from February 3rd through March 31st. The First Friday
reception on Feb. 3rd from 5 to 9 pm is open to the public at no charge and
includes complimentary light refreshments live music and a chance to meet
