Cohen, Past President of Gig Harbor's Chamber of Commerce, has
wanted for a long time to support Peninsula Art League Artists.
He has decided to create a new Solo Gallery Art Space entitled
"The Art Space @ Backbone" which will feature a new artist each
month with a Solo Show. He will be hosting an Opening Reception
the 1st Saturday, Gig Harbor Art Walk the first Saturday of each month from 4:00
p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
This new Solo Show "Art Space Gallery @ Backbone’s" purpose is
to give exposure to accomplished PAL artists who are not
presently exhibiting in local Art
Co-ops in Gig Harbor.
A Solo Show gives an artist an opportunity to exhibit a "Body of
Work". It also gives an opportunity for the public to experience
on artist's point of view and creations, not just one or two
pieces of their art.

Curator, Donna Carver
Donna Carver, a Pacific Coast Artist and Gig Harbor resident
(member of Seattle Arts Prints; Lifetime member of Buenaventura
Art Associations; Juried Member of Peninsula Art League (PAL) )
and a member of "the Inkspots of San Bueanventura", is curator
and will be the first PAL juried art member to be having a solo
show at this location.
Donna has arranged the show for the next 12 months.
The artists who were chosen represent diverse mediums and
subject matter ranging from Fine Art Printmakers to oil, pastel,
acrylic painters and photography.
It is the hope that "the Art Space Solo Gallery" Receptions will
become a monthly evening out for art appreciators, art lovers,
and collectors alike to view and enjoy a new artist and their
body of work.
