Artists interweaved the common threads discovered through conversations - with each other, with their audience, with the universe - into unique mixed media collaborative book works. Their work speaks to the creativity that unfolds when we invite others to the table.
A solo exhibit with artist Jyoti Duwadi curated by Barbara Matilsky exploring natural and repurposed materials. Jyoti’s wide-ranging approach to making art calls attention to nature’s beauty and the precarious relationship between humans and the environment. This exhibition spotlights his repurposed sanding belts marked by the trees of Pacific Northwest Forests. Jyoti transforms this industrial material with earth colors and “visual poetry,” calligraphic writing defined by Ayurvedic medicine. The exhibition also features a variety of other media, including beeswax sculptures — made with utilitarian objects —in response to the ecological crisis of disappearing honey bee colonies.
Join us for our annual celebration of youth artists. This exhibit represents the culmination of a year of arts, science and garden integrated learning with Pre-K-3rd grade students within the Port Angeles School District. Community members are invited to learn more about the wonderful world of insects, pollination, habitat, plants, and soil regeneration through the eyes and art of our youngest learners. Artwork from 250+ local students includes pottery, print-making, collage, watercolor and more. This project is made possible by a Creative Start Grant from the Washington State Arts Commission.
