Since its incep­tion in 1985 Water­Works Gallery has a tra­di­tion of rein­ven­tion. The 2020 show sched­ule broad­ens the con­cept of the ART AiSLE. Month­ly, the gallery hosts a recent body of work high­light­ing artists from the Pacif­ic Northwest.

This month Water­Works Gallery is proud to present David Ridg­way’s land­scape and abstract oil paint­ings. The gallery has been rep­re­sent­ing David for over 20 years. Time real­ly flies!

David pares the land­scape down to inter­lock­ing col­ored shapes and paints these shapes in bold col­ors. He express­es his love of form, in par­tic­u­lar of the gable as seen in the barns, farm­hous­es and sum­mer cot­tages of the Skag­it Flats or the San Juan Islands.

And this year, for the first the gallery presents a few of his abstract paint­ings por­tray­ing the inter­sec­tions of small spaces using col­or to push and pull the shapes into for­ward or reced­ing motions.
