From Aug. 1-31, Rob Schouten Gallery in Langley will present new paintings by painter Alfredo Arreguín.

At 85, Alfredo still paints daily and continues to engage the audience with a range of intriguing paintings that further explore his portrayal of Frida Kahlo and others, as well as Mayan and Northwest mythological motifs.

The Seattle-based artist’s colorful pattern paintings radiate an ethereal presence that transport the viewer to a plane of spirit and mystery.

The exhibition consists of 19 new and recent paintings that can be seen on the gallery’s website as well. www.robschoutengallery.com

The exhibit “Facade: What Lies Beneath the Surface,” featuring paintings by Anne Belov, continues through July 28.

Gallery visitors are required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Call 360-222-3070 or go to www.robschoutengallery.com

In order to safely reopen, the gallery was thoroughly cleaned and a Plexiglas counter shield installed to allow safe purchasing. A maximum of six visitors at a time will be allowed in the gallery.

Rob Schouten Gallery, 101 Anthes Ave., is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday.
