Historical Society Meeting: The Northwind Gallery

Before it became the Northwind, Ria Foster's gallery was The Green Frog, located in downtown Anacortes circa 1967. Not long after, like it's amphibian namesake, it changed and became Island International Artists, and moved to Guemes Island where once again it morphed, becoming the Northwind Gallery in 1980.

Join us on November 13th at 7 pm at the Guemes Island Community Church for a fascinating look at the business that “fostered” many local artists and exposed their work to a national audience. The program will be presented by fellow islanders Renee and Rick Norrie.

The program will be followed by the regularly scheduled GIHS business meeting. All interested parties are welcome to attend. For more information please contact Tom Deach at 360-708-2582 or email:

Hope to see you there!
