The San Juan Islands Museum of Art welcomes the community to our fourth exhibition of works by more than 70 county-wide artists’ registry members, a riot of art and color displaying an amazing range of talent. Look forward to the impressive diversity of local talent with paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and encaustic, as well as pastels, photography, mixed media, pottery, sculpture, glass, wood, textiles and jewelry by Artists’ Registry members.

This year’s show, organized around “Tattered, Torn and Sepia” features emerging and established artists expressing the beauty, identity, authenticity and connectedness of our community.

The IMA artists embrace our islands as a place of enduring discovery and their art as advocating for their own most spirited selves. The opening reception is on Nov. 20, 5-8 p.m. “It has been a four-year journey to this, our biggest exhibition ever,” said Yvonne Buijs-Mancuso, the curator of the show which features artwork for sale.

IMA People’s Choice Award for various categories of art will be introduced and attendees can vote for their favorite.

“This show is a celebration of islands’ art,” said IMA executive director, Ian Boyden. “IMA is wholeheartedly committed to supporting the creativity, education and exposure of local artists. Introducing the entire community to the scope of artistic possibilities is an exciting part of our mission.”

Admission is free and this show is sponsored by Browne’s Home Center, Friday Harbor Electric and Mancuso Design and Construction. To find out more go to
