National Park Service and San Juan Islands Museum of Art Present Special Artist-in-Residence Exhibition

The National Park Service and the San Juan Islands Museum of Art are presenting a special exhibition of the park’s Artist-in-Residence, Linda Hyatt Cancel. The exhibition features 18 original pieces of work of American Camp and English Camp in commemorating the 160th anniversary of the “Pig War” boundary dispute between the United States and Britain in the summer of 1859.

Artist, Linda Hyatt Cancel, says, “The first painting I started and finished was “Do They Miss Me at Home” because I was not only enchanted by the peace and beauty of twilight at American Camp, but also empathetic to the psychological toll it must have taken on the soldiers stationed there. We as island residents and park visitors enjoy these breathtaking views and historical significance of this magnificent place, and I am incredibly excited to share this body of work with the public.”

Peter Lane, Director of Operations at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, welcomed San Juan Island National Historical Park and the opportunity to host this exhibit. For the first time, the museum began using the workshop and community space on the second floor to show additional pieces.

The exhibition is open at the museum now and runs through November 4th, 2019. Museum hours are Thursday-Monday from 11-5. Admission is $10 for adults, and those under 18 are free.
