If you can’t come into the museum to see the art; we will come to you.
Our team has been hard at work interviewing and photographing the artists and their creations so you can visit them online. You can now go to sjima-online.org to tour the annual Artists’ Registry show at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA).
Start by browsing the Artists’ Registry Index to get an overview of all the works in the exhibition, then dive into each artist’s page for more information. During the week following the initial site launch on Jan 10 several artist interviews — taped live or via Zoom - will be added to their artist pages. A panoramic video tour will also be added to the site so the art can be seen in its setting with other works.
Seventy-one artists’ work span sculpture, photography, oil painting, glass, jewelry, acrylic painting, mixed media, drawing, encaustic, pottery, prints-etchings, mono prints, block prints, watercolor, wood, textiles, pastels and egg tempura. This outstanding array of work from our county wide artists-emerging, established and professional, is installed beautifully in the SJIMA galleries.
You can also enjoy previous exhibitions and events under the heading of Second Helpings, with additional past exhibitions being added throughout the month.
All the participating artists in the SJIMA Artists’ Registry group volunteer to help with the show, whether it is creating the artist statements, painting walls, responding to needs on the online displays or designing the layout.
Special thanks go to the Leadership Committee of Rudi and Bill Weissinger, Laura Long and David Harsh. Also to Bonita Diemoz, Dante Aubert and Alayne Goodheart for maintaining the sjima.org website and data base. To Karen Woldtvedt for filming and photographing all artist work in the exhibition, interviews, and for supplying all the photographic and video content to Mark Kyle for image processing, designing, and coding the online exhibition. Bruce Clark and Peter Lane play key roles in the design and floor plans of the show. Yvonne Buijs-Mancuso, as the AR liaison, keeps the board up to date.
Enjoy the show! We will be here to welcome you when SJIMA can open.
