Pike Art Gallery has decked the halls for Christmas at Camas First Friday Art Walk this week. Gallery owner and local artist Liz Pike invites the public to a swanky artists’ reception – serving up conviviality with complimentary beverages and charcuterie on Friday (Dec. 1) from 5 to 8 p.m.
The gallery is located at the corner of Birch Street and Sixth Avenue, occupying the lobby of Minuteman Press. The gallery features the work of both Pike and Vancouver artist Blue Bond at the popular art exhibition every first Friday of the month.
“I’m unveiling a new body of works painted in a new palette of soft shades of avocado greens and golds,” said Pike. “I’ve experienced a wonderful year of inspiration and I’m excited to share my latest body of work.”
Pike also noted the importance of shopping local during this Christmas season of giving.
“We have so many wonderful hometown businesses that are owned and operated by local families. When we shop local, everyone wins,” she added. Bond also has new works of art on display at Pike Art Gallery for the month of December.
Additionally, Pike keeps her gallery open late each Thursday from 5-7 p.m. Each Thirsty ART Thursday, Pike performs a live painting demonstration in oil on canvas. Discover local art and enjoy complimentary beverages and charcuterie each Thursday from 5-7 p.m. “We invite area residents to drop into Pike Art Gallery on their way to dinner in downtown Camas.”
Pike also shows her work at several summertime art festivals. She is a member of the Battle Ground Art Alliance, Artisans Guild of Camas, the Northwest Oil Painters Guild and Society of Washington Artists. Pike Art Gallery can be reached at (360) 281-8720.
