Submitted by the San Juan Islands Museum of Art
Environmental attorney Lynn Bahrych of Shaw Island has joined the board of the San Juan Islands Museum of Art in Friday Harbor.
Impressed by how SJIMA’s exhibitions have reflected sensitivity to the issues and values of conservation in the Pacific Northwest, Bahrych was motivated to work with the art museum. She works in maritime, land use and natural resource conservation law. She, along with Marjorie Rombauer, is the author of “Legal Writing In A Nutshell.”
Bahrych earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Stanford University, a Masters from the University of Texas and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Washington. She then went on to earn her law degree from the University of Washington School of Law. She has also served on the Washington Law Review and as a Proctor in Admiralty for the Maritime Law Association.
Coming from a family that placed a high value on the arts, Bahrych has always enjoyed her own collection. As a memorial to her brother, Lawrence Frank Bahrych, an artist of some renown, she is sponsoring a two week Summer Artist Residency on Shaw Island. The residency is for eight Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts students and two instructors and runs from July 7-21.
