New gallery opens Saturday…..

John Sinclair wrote to ask me to invite you to the opening of his new place – here’s more:

Come help celebrate the opening of Concepia (, Friday Harbor’s latest business venture, and view the first solo show of Randy Laybourne, this Saturday from 2-5pm in the new Churchill Corner, just above the ferry landing.

About Concepia:
Concepia is run by John Sinclair, a local photographer and nine year resident of San Juan Island. His interest in photography and desire to maintain a year-round island life led him to opening a retail space in Friday Harbor. Up until just recently he was commuting back and forth to Siberia, helping the Russians drill better oil wells. Now he is offering a different kind of service, one that sits much closer to his heart: photography. Concepia boasts an impressive list of products: photography gallery, photography studio, large format printing, standard and custom framing, photography bookstore, website design, technology and photography tutoring, are the core of Concepia’s business.

About Randy Laybourne’s Show “Going”:
This stunning series of photographs captured during a journey from California to British Columbia, showcases Randy’s exceptional talent as a photographer. Shot with a variety of cameras and films, it documents the small nuances of life that we often walk straight past. From aging roller-coasters to commercial signs, Randy’s range of subjects is diverse, but the emotional connection is consistent throughout. It’s classic Americana photography, but with a focus on the unusual.
