Barrels Wine Bar, Mercer Island’s newest wine bar, is also a gallery for local artists to show their work.

Barrels will be showcasing Debra Van Tuinen, an artist from Olympia, Washington for the next two months. Debra will be at the wine bar during First Friday, July 6 to discuss her work and answer questions.

In 2016, she participated in the Spectrum / Red Dot Show during the Miami Art Basel and showed three of her new acrylic and sumi ink on canvas paintings. As a result, in 2017 her work was represented by Steidel Fine Art Gallery in London, England. They showed her work in the 2017 May AFF show in Hampstead, London and at a Fall show at Steidel Fine Art Gallery in Austin, Texas.

Debra will be showing at Barrels until early September. See attached images. Her website is http://www.vantuinenart.com.
