All of us at both Artists' Edge locations would like to wish our staff member Sophie Bonomi a huge congratulations for graduating from Northwest College of Art & Design (NCAD) here in Poulsbo. It has been a challenging 3 years for her, 2 of which she has worked part time at our Poulsbo store.

Those of you who know Sophie from the store, know she gives exceptional customer service and will go out of her way to make your day. Sophie is one of our top designers, and she has a knack for choosing the right combination to make your artwork shine! Please come by the store today and wish Sophie a congratulations in person!

White Horse Golf Club Art Installation by Artists' Edge Art Services Team

Did you know Artists Edge offers complete Art, Framing, & Installation Services?
This week we completed an installation of 12 framed pieces for the new White Horse Golf Clubhouse in Kingston. Now run by the Suquamish Tribe, this new 20,000 square foot clubhouse was finished and opened just weeks ago.

Special thanks to Lydia, Richard, Irene, and all others on the art committee for choosing Artists' Edge as your locally owned business to complete this project.

The project consisted of 17 36x36 inch canvases printed at Sound Reprographics on Bainbridge Island which we stretched & framed in an ebonized solid walnut frame. We then installed 12 of those pieces in the clubhouse, 7 of them in the main entryway, pictured here, and 5 of them within their new restaurant, Cedar Ridge Grill.

All the works were installed with security hangers, which  prohibit them from becoming crooked. Security hangers are also a good option so that work cannot be removed. You need a special wrench to do so. In the event of mild earthquake, these pieces will still remain straight on the wall. You also must always be concerned about artwork hung much higher than head level as many of these are.

Artists' Edge offers every option imaginable with our Art Services Team. Do you have a project in the works that we can help you with? Call Derek Gundy or John Abromowski at (360) 779-2337 for a free consultation. We will come visit you at your space and discuss your options and make suggestions.

DePirro Golden Lecture a big hit at Poulsbo Artists' Edge


Barbara De Pirro visited our Poulsbo location on Saturday January 26th, and gave a wonderful informative lecture on all Golden Acrylic Products. 36 people were in attendance, and everyone received a free sample pack, as well as a booklet of valuable information covering the entire Golden line.

For those of you that missed this lecture, we will be holding another lecture in our Silverdale location on Saturday March 16th from 1-3:30.

For those wanting to attend, please email derek@artistsedge.com. Please include your phone # in your email. If for any reason you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible, as we almost always have a waiting list for Barbara's lectures.

This is also a great opportunity to let you know about Barbara's Upcoming Classes at Artists' Edge. Saturday February 16th Barbara will teach a class - Amazing Acrylics: Grounds & Pastes. This is a "part 2" to her last class in October Mediums & Gels. Cost is $125 with most supplies graciously supplied by Golden Paints.  Click here for online registration & for more info.

Golden Molding Paste

The next class Barbara will offer at Artists' Edge is "The Printed Image". Watch for it on our website soon. 

Learn the basics of creating monotype and relief printed images. Both methods create unique results; the pressure of printing creates texture and pattern not possible when painting directly on paper. You will explore techniques of transferring imagery without a press, using water based media, acrylic paints and slow drying mediums. The actual process of creating each print encourages spontaneity and openness to fresh unexpected results. Create art that can stand on its own or a supply of prints, ideal for mixed media compositions. 

Artists' Edge offers a variety of art classes and creative events. Visit us online at www.artistsedge.com
