Green Antelope Gallery in Bellevue is celebrating spring with a reception featuring local artists Ginny Blakeslee Breen and Lee Higman, as well as a memorial showing of Wolfgang Golden's work, this Friday, May 4, from 5-9 p.m.

Ginny Blakeslee Breen is a new artist at Green Antelope. Her large, colorful oil paintings of flowers are bright and bold, offering a cheerful focal point to brighten any home.

Ginny says of her work, "I want my art to be uplifting, beautiful, and powerful. I want each piece to be an image that 'gives' you something wonderful when you see it."

Lee Higman is showing new landscapes, inspired by local scenes, in her signature style using simple, bold strokes with an underlying complexity of color and pattern. The new pieces are larger than previous work, expanding on similar themes of mountains, horses and the horizon. Ten percent of Lee's commission on art sales benefits Orphan Acres Horse Rescue in Northern Idaho.

Green Antelope is also presenting a memorial show of Wolfgang Golden's work. Represented by the gallery since 2009, Golden died after a motorcycle accident in January.

"We were deeply saddened by the loss of Wolfgang," says gallery owner Brooke Bonner. "An artist, Harley devotee, and big personality, Wolfgang's life and artwork mirrored his passions. By creatively combining ceramics, paper, paint and other mediums, Wolfgang sculpted interesting plays on motorcycle jackets and vests, birds and more."

Green Antelope Gallery is located at 116 S. Second St., right on the bike bath in Bellevue.

Opened in 2006, Green Antelope displays paintings, sculpture, photography, and jewelry by local and regional artists. More information and a preview of the show are available online at
