Welcome to Purple Sage Gallery
Tucked into the Methow Valley is Winthrop’s locally owned artisans gallery, Purple Sage Gallery. We have made it our mission to support local artists in their artistic lifestyle, journey, and endeavors to remain what they are: local artists. Hailing from the North Cascade Mountains, a bulk of our artists’ work encompasses that of the natural world around them, lush with forest-green shades and swirls of brightly colored flora scattered throughout the valley. Come by the gallery to see the Methow Valley from the eyes who document it through art.
Meet Our Founder
Complete with paintings, boxes of art and a filing cabinet, Kathleen Jardin’s gallery reflects her life as an artist and business owner in Winthrop, Washington, on the Old West Boardwalk.
Kathleen and her husband Kyrie own the local lodging company, Methow Reservations, as well as a regional artisan gallery, called the Purple Sage Gallery, which features the work of regional artists and friends from a lifetime. Kathleen keeps busy with the day-to-day tasks and decisions that equate to running two businesses, but every successful person has their origin story.
Donning colorful-rimmed glasses and a smile, Kathleen recalled her high school years, where she excelled in business and math classes, but always found herself doodling or spending time in the art room.
“I realized I didn’t want to be an art teacher and had no vision as to how to make money as an artist,” Kathleen said.
