6 PM- 8 PM
Events at Rectangle Gallery
Covid has put a damper on our events this year, but they will be back and better than ever.
When we are able, we will gather together (well-masked and practicing social distancing) to celebrate the Gallery artists and our guest artists on First Fridays and taking part in downtown and community events.
Until that time we will be open until 6:30 pm every First Friday, open late for special downtown shopping events and for classes and art experiences.

Susanne Darius is an innovative West Coast artist, based in Centralia, WA. Influenced by artists such as Bonny Roberts, Marion Rose, and Dreama Tolle Perry, Darius has worked for many years to find her internal visual voice, distinct and separate from her mentors. Born in Montreal, Quebec, the Darius family moved across the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast in 1965. Engineer/draftsman father and oil painting mother both encouraged Susanne’s early attempts at drawing. Today Darius’ work is informed by her bachelor’s degree in science helping her to strongly engage with the many properties of paint and media. Darius’ interest in the minute, and at times unquantifiable, has guided her recent foray into abstract, organic forms. Whether an image is portrayed in landscape, still life or as an abstract depends on the creative process and the artist’s eye; the mercurial artistic path sometimes leads to close examination of a bunch of grapes or to non-representational, expressive abstracts.
