Into The Myths
Encounter the creatures of multicultural legends at the Outstanding In Its Field Gallery during its first show of the year, Into the Myths, April 7 – 30, 2023. The show features works from six Vashon Island artists inspired by epic tales and myths from around the world, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Vashon BookMobile. Our hours are Noon – 5 pm each Saturday and Sunday. We will also open the gallery by appointment, call 206-419-0199. As the name implies, we’re located in a pasture, nestled in the heart of lovely Vashon Island, Washington, not far from the town center (10524 S.W. 188th St, just west of Sawbones).
Myths and legends are an important part of the development of civilizations around the world. We are excited to present five distinct approaches to the subject.
The First Friday celebration, April 7th, from 4 pm to 8 pm, will include the chance to meet the artists and a visit from the Vashon Bookmobile featuring some well-loved books that explore myths and legends including: Vashon author Heidi Lang’s The Mystic Cooking Chronicles series, Wings of Fire graphic novels, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Star Stories: Constellation Tales from Around the World, Raven: A Trickster Tale from the Pacific Northwest, Celtic Tales: Fairy Tales and Stories of Enchantment from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales, and The Last Quest of Gilgamesh, among others.

The Vashon Reads Bookmobile is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the love of reading in Vashon Island youth, one book at a time. The mobile lending library caters to children ages 0-18 delivering high-quality books across the island in a retired Japanese Fire Truck. Children are able to borrow two books at a time, and exchange them for new ones during bi-monthly visits.
The gallery will follow all CDC and Washington State COVID guidelines and respectfully requests that all visitors wear a mask while inside the gallery itself.
Outstanding In Its Field Gallery is open April – September each year with monthly themed-exhibits featuring Vashon Island Artists almost exclusively. Additional shows planned for 2023 include Buds and Bugs, Splash, and The Dog and Cat Days of Summer. The gallery will also be open for the VIVA Art Tours in May and December.
We will only send one email per each upcoming show. Promise not to overwhelm!
