Cole Gallery turns seven with more than 80 new art pieces

Feb 13, 2014
Black Dog Blues, by Iris Scott, is among more than 80 new art pieces on display at Cole Gallery in celebration of its seventh anniversary.

Cole Gallery celebrates its seventh anniversary with an invitational show featuring more than 80 new pieces by most of the 50 plus artists they represent.

The show runs to March 17 at the gallery with a celebration reception on Art Walk night on Thursday, Feb. 20.

“It’s a total feast for the eyes,” gallery owner Denise Cole said.  “The Anniversary Show is our biggest show of the year.

“I started the gallery with 12 artists and now we represent over 50.  This show will be the biggest we’ve ever had.”

The gallery asked each of their artists to bring anywhere from one to three new pieces in any style, genre, and medium.

“At Cole Gallery, we strive to feature Northwest painters and sculptors from primarily Washington and Oregon, but we do have a few from further afield,” Cole said.

“Many people don't realize that several of our artists are nationally and even internationally renowned showing at galleries and winning awards around the country like Michele Usibelli, David Marty, and one of our newest artists, fine art finger painter Iris Scott.”

The gallery has no intention of slowing down or settling in after seven years.  Cole plans to add more group shows throughout the year as well as continuing with individual showcases.  T

They began this year with their first ever contemporary and abstract show.

“We are making a lot changes in the types of shows we offer.  I want to keep things fresh and exciting,” Cole said.

“I want to continue our reach throughout the nation and internationally.  I also want to continue to build up our art workshop program with Cole Art Studio located here at the gallery.”

Cole Gallery with their artists will celebrate on Art Walk night from 5-8 p.m. Feb. 20 with appetizers and a champagne toast.

All original art will be 10 percent off in celebration until Feb. 20.  See the show at the gallery, 107 5th Ave. S, Edmonds, or online at
