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.
