Artist Spotlight: Gail Gwinn

We are thrilled to have Gail Gwinn return to Whidbey for this year’s show. She has been busy getting moved in to her sister’s new art space in Waitsburg, which is on the other side of the mountains from here.

The grand opening of 10 Ton Press was written up in the Waitsburg/ Dayton Times and I think it will be a big draw to artists in the area.

Gail says: “I was introduced to printmaking in 1996. I was invited by Island International Artists, Anacortes WA to take an etching workshop taught by print artist, Richard Stauffacher.  I discovered that etching gives my work the look I’d been searching for; a medium that combines the precision of drawing, the transparency of watercolor and the richness of oil paint.  I love the process of printmaking and bought a press and set up my own print studio in 1998.”
