Bainbridge Island Artwalk | September 3, 2021

By Alyssa Morrison |

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to host a series of rotating artists for the monthly Bainbridge Island Art Walk at the “Island Living Gallery”. This month, we are proud to present featured artist Peggy Brunton and live music from WEPA!

Peggy Brunton | Olympus Beach Studio

Peggy Brunton is a favorite local artist whose lush, expressive canvases of acres of flowers, rowboats and water, bicycles and pies, and gardens and wild bouquets record the emotional life of a magical island. 
 
From West Sound Magazine
Brunton’s art sings with light, bright colors and the high values of transparent flowers and reflective water. To sustain the flight, her paintings take the viewer on, deeper colors and defined shapes form the foundation, similar to her garden as well as her fully lived life. Painting is at the core of her heart but life has demanded its share of intensities, giving Brunton a personal depth to paint from.
She studied ceramics but switched to painting upon returning to the University of Washington for graduate school. Her advisor told her to paint what she knew. All she knew at the time was Safeway and food.
The majority of Brunton’s art draws from the postimpressionist period where subjective, emotional qualities are valued over realistic representations.
