Garry Oak Gallery’s First Friday event will be hosted by the May Featured Artist, retired Navy Photographic Officer Randy Emmons. The public is invited to visit Friday, May 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. and enjoy the chocolate, wine and art.

Emmons is offering a 20 percent discount at the First Friday event on his art to anyone with a Military ID Card.

An art student prior to joining the Navy, Emmons spent 25 years in the Navy with a camera instead of a brush. Today he has returned to the art he thought he was going to do his entire life and paints scenes of Western Washington and, primarily, Whidbey Island.

“My work has been called happy, wonky and sparkly,” he said. “I look forward to the opportunity to introduce you to my work.”

The Garry Oak Gallery is located at 830 SE Pioneer Way. Call 240-0222, or visit www.garryoakgallery.com.
