Taste for Wine’s Cellar Room will feature the watercolor and acrylic paintings of Gaylen Whiteman for October. There will be a Sunday Art Afternoon Oct. 9 from 3 to 6 p.m. with an artists reception for Whiteman  and live music with guitarist Quinn Fitzpatrick. Whiteman is a Whidbey Island resident who has shown her work locally at the Artworks Gallery in Greenbank, where she is president of the co-op artist group. She has shown art in several juried shows both on and off the island, and as far away as Missouri.

“I am inspired by the heart, beauty and spirit of the natural world,” she said. She paints in her Freeland studio creating scenes with children, wildlife flora and fauna, and landscapes.

Taste for Wine is the tasting room for two Whidbey wineries, Spoiled Dog Winery and Blooms Winery. They share the tasting room and operate the art gallery, which is open Thursdays through Mondays at the historic Bayview Corner Cash Store.

The bronze sculpture of Hank Nelson will be back on display starting in October as well. Nelson has Cloudstone Sculpture Park in Freeland. He creates his work in stone, then has the pieces cast in bronze, and has shown previously at Taste for Wine.

In October there will be two other sessions with live music at Taste for Wine. Quinn Fitzpatrick will play his acoustic guitar from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, and singer/songwriter Eleanor Fye will perform on Sunday, Oct. 30, from 3 to 5 p.m. Visit or call 360-321-0515.
