Margy has a good excuse. On her way back to Southern California from finishing up on her book on the Channel Islands, she fell and injured her hip at the Sea-Tac Airport. She's currently in rehab in Washington State and will be coming back south to finish her rehab when she is able.

In her absence, three of her Hollywood Beach buddies are banding together to cover for her to keep the Sea Gate Art Gallery open. She had disconnected the land line there, so if you have her cell number, please give her a call with your get well wishes. Also, if Gail, Judy or Karine aren't at the gallery, the local number you can call to schedule an appointment is 805.890.8025.

Signed copies of her Salish Sea book are at her gallery at the end of Harbor Boulevard, next to the world-famous Rudder Room as well as the Maritime Museum which is also on Harbor.

Please leave a comment on this blog post so she can see your good wishes for a speedy recovery. She's a local treasure with a world-wide reputation.

Forget Black Friday! Support your local artist and give the gift of a signed book or original art! Margy has been working on illustrating another book in the series and her last one has been published and is available in Sea Gate Art Gallery and Studio. The weather is warm and wonderful, so be sure to stop by!

The book makes a wonderful gift. Margy would love to see you, so stop by the gallery which has many other gift ideas. In addition, you can buy a gift certificate, or commission a painting.

Award-winning artist Margy Gates has brought pen to paper to capture some beautiful Salish Sea scenes in a new book printed by Anacortes’ Cave Art Press.
“Exploring the Salish Sea: An Artist’s View” explores the Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Georgia Strait and surrounding areas. It focuses on the region’s wildlife and native culture.
Gates illustrates the area’s iconic sea life, including salmon and killer whales.

The above is from a link to the local press on the book:

Keep an eye out for a post from from me when it comes out. If you know someone interested in the book, have them email me at MargyGatesArt @ gmail.com (without the spaces before and after the @), and we will add the name to our announcement list for this and other events.

I am still doing commissions, so you can use the above email or leave a message at the my gallery phone number if I am not there. Or stop by! I'd love to see you! Exciting things are happening!
