Island Art Collector to part with Treasured Works

Never before publicly displayed, Vashon Island resident, Jean Navarre has entrusted Janett Harrington and Andrea Aldrich, co-owners of UpCycled, with the privilege of presenting for sale twenty-two carefully selected pieces of art, representing eight contemporary artists.

Jean has been collecting artwork for over 30 years and now feels it is time to offer part of her collection for sale. Although Ms Navarre’s artwork has proven to be a good investment, her motivation for each acquisition has always been primarily her love of the artwork.

Some of the artists represented are French-American painter Mireille B. Ripley, American painter Bev Walker and Mexican painter and sculptor, Fernando Ramos Prida.

Both Janett and Andrea are artists, as well as designers, and they are delighted to have been given the opportunity to display these extraordinary pieces of art in their shop. The goal of their business is to be a source for the sustainable home, offering previously owned, quality furniture, housewares, art and antiques and these pieces from Jean’s collection is like icing on the cake.

You can see this artwork any day, except Wednesday, at UpCycled, the green house across from Ober Park at 17123 Vashon hwy SW.
