Peregrine O’Gormley works from his Washington studio, sculpting almost all of his original work from wood. He collects much of the wood he works with in his immediate surroundings, all of it either fallen or driftwood. Juniper, Western Red Cedar, Maple and Yew are his local favorites. His work is part of Revering Nature in the Feferman and Beacon Galleries at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. The group exhibition features twenty artists from the Puget Sound region working in diverse media, reflecting the inherent beauty of nature. Other participating artists include Donna Leavitt (Edmonds), Aaron McKnight (Bainbridge Island), June Sekiguchi (Issaquah), Leslie Wu (Vashon Island). The exhibition opened on March 11th.
