Sunnyshore Studio is thrilled to announce our 2019 Artistic Season. We hope that you are able to visit us for one – or all! – of these shows as we “share beauty with the world.”
MARCH: VINTAGE WATERCOLORISTS OF WASHINGTON
Our season begins in March with the second of five Jack Dorsey Invitational: Vintage Watercolorists of Washington shows. We’re thrilled to partner again with the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS), one of the premier watercolor society’s in the US.
We’ll showcase the art and celebrate the lives and artistic legacies of five of Washington’s top watercolorists: Jerry Stitt, Seiko Konya, Nancy Fulton, Cooper Hart and Sandy Langford. Jack Dorsey will also have five of his paintings on display. And we are excited to have on display a watercolor by Elizabeth Warhanik, one of the founding members of Women Painters of Washington.
You won’t want to miss the meet the artist reception, 3-5pm, on March 9th. We expect it to be packed with watercolor lovers, artists and friends of the art as it was last year!
Check out the poster below for information on the show featuring one of Cooper Hart’s marine paintings.
And here’s a video preview of the artists with some fun bloopers of Jack Dorsey and the making of the video.

JACK DORSEY SILENT ART AUCTION
Jack Dorsey, the patriarch of our family of artists, is a well known northwest artist whose artworks are collected and prized. Jack has painted for close to sixty years and has an impressive body of art that ranges watercolor landscapes to still life and western oils. Here’s your chance to see a broad collection of Jack’s works, get your hands on a Jack Dorsey original, and maybe even a great deal on it too.
The silent auction will work this way. There will be a minimum bid for each painting. If you want to take the painting today there will be a price for that too. At the end of the show we will see what painting is going to a new home.
The show will take place over three Saturdays in June:
- Saturday, June 15, 10am-5pm
- Saturday, June 22, 10am-5pm
- Saturday, June 29, 10am-5pm
OCTOBER: JED DORSEY SOLO SHOW
A highlight of our artistic season each year is Jed Dorsey’s solo show. Jed usually sells his shows out, and typically there are people waiting at the door to get in before the show opens!
Jed’s show will run on two Saturdays in October:
- October 5th, 10am-5pm
- October 12th, 10am-5pm
This year we’ll plan to host the show online as we did last October so Jed’s friends and fans across the US and world (remarkably, but it is true) can purchase his beautiful acrylic paintings.
If you want to learn more about Jed, or are interested in taking an online course in acrylics through his Acrylic University check out his web site:
DECEMBER CHRISTMAS SHOW
Each year we do a themed Christmas show. Last year’s show was “Christmas in Miniature”. We haven’t settled on a theme for our 2019 Christmas show. Maybe we’ll stick with the Christmas in miniature theme. Maybe we’ll branch out with something new.
But for sure we’ll have a wonderful time sharing new original art, and affordable prints, books we’ve published, and lots of delicious food and drinks. We’ll also have fun inviting guests artists who help us make this an especially festive show packed with friends!
Our family looks forward to welcoming you in to our creative studio-gallery as we share the beauty of Camano with the world!
- December 7th, 10am-5pm
- December 14th, 10am-5pm
