Stunningly Strange, a new art gallery, is set to open its doors in downtown Edmonds on November 15th. The gallery will bring fresh new styles to Edmonds, displaying whimsical, surrealistic, and mixed media art.
“No matter what age a person is, there is an imaginative side to everyone,” said Stunningly Strange Owner, Kaitlin Phillips Goodey. “I want to show art that is unusual and has a story that resonates with the viewer.”
The goal of the gallery is to bring new and fresh art to an active art community. “I want to expose the community to art that goes beyond the traditional,” Phillips Goodey said. The first show in the gallery will be her own artwork, which is inspired by fairy tales, playful youth, and memories.
Phillips Goodey is a recent Master of Fine Arts graduate from Washington State University, where she explored the stage between youthful imagination and losing one’s innocence through photography and figurative clay sculptures. She was trained in photography at the Art Institute of Seattle where she earned her Bachelor in Fine Art. She is the granddaughter of J. Ward Phillips, a former president of the Edmonds Arts Festival, and original developer of Old Milltown in downtown Edmonds.
Phillips Goodey has shown in the Washington State University Museum of Art, CUB Gallery, Gallery II, Reidenbach Gallery, Art Not Terminal, Twilight Artist Collective, Gallery III, Tasty Delectable Collectables, and internationally at Dollirium Art Doll Emporium, along with showing her work at Seattle art fairs and the Fremont market.
The Stunningly Strange Gallery will open on the night of the Edmonds Third Thursday Art Walk and the annual Edmonds “First Dibs” holiday merchant open house on November 15th, from 5pm to 8pm.Stunningly Strange Gallery 407 Main Street Edmonds, WA 98020 (425) 697-0420 | firstname.lastname@example.org Next door to Manya Vee Selects
