VAC Art Exhibit: Island Bounty

Are you an artist who works with natural island resources? Do you spin yarn from local sheep or alpaca, work with Madrona wood, or otherwise use the bounty of our islands to fabricate your creations? Might you paint rural island landscapes, farm scenes, or capture our agricultural setting in other ways? Farm tools repurposed into art? Restored farm trucks? Photographs or films, local wood craft, even seaweed and salmon sculpture are all welcome! The Visual Arts Committee (VAC) of Orcas Center and the San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild are partnering to create a unique fall show entitled, Island Bounty. This curated exhibition aims to honor and highlight the beauty and foods that come from our islands as well as the talented artists and artisans in our region. Timed as the launch to the popular annual Island Grown Farm Tours, this is a celebration of our agricultural heritage and island bounty.
