  Commitment to Community

Dr. Christian 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.

2011 - 2012 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.

As curator, 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.
