If you can’t come to the muse­um to see the art, the art will come to you.

Our team has been hard at work inter­view­ing and pho­tograph­ing the artists and their cre­ations so you can vis­it them online.

"Travel," Sherry Bell, etching.

As of Jan. 12, go to sjima-online.org to tour the annu­al Artists’ Reg­istry show at the San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art.

Start by brows­ing the Artists’ Reg­istry Index to get an overview of all the works in the exhi­bi­tion, then dive into each artist’s page for more information.

Dur­ing the week fol­low­ing the ini­tial site launch on Jan. 12 sev­er­al artist inter­views — taped live or via Zoom — will be added to their artist pages. A panoram­ic video tour will also be added to the site so the art can be seen in its set­ting with oth­er works.

The 71 fea­tured artists will dis­play work that spans sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, oil paint­ing, glass, jew­el­ry, acrylic paint­ing, mixed media, draw­ing, encaus­tic, pot­tery, prints-etch­ings, mono­prints, block prints, water­col­or, wood, tex­tiles, pas­tels, and egg tempura.

This out­stand­ing array of work from our coun­ty-wide artists-emerg­ing, estab­lished and pro­fes­sion­al, is installed beau­ti­ful­ly in the SJIMA galleries.

You can also enjoy pre­vi­ous exhi­bi­tions and events under the online head­ing “Sec­ond Help­ings,” with addi­tion­al past exhi­bi­tions being added through­out the year.

All the par­tic­i­pat­ing artists in the SJIMA Artists’ Reg­istry group vol­un­teer to help with the show, whether it is cre­at­ing the artist state­ments, paint­ing walls, respond­ing to needs on the online dis­plays, or design­ing the layout.

Spe­cial thanks go to the Lead­er­ship Com­mit­tee of Rudi and Bill Weissinger, Lau­ra Long, and David Harsh. Boni­ta Diemoz, Dante Aubert, and Alayne Good­heart main­tain the web­site and data­base. Bruce Clark and Peter Lane play key roles in the design and floor­plans of the show. Mark Kyle and Karen Woldtvedt make up the film­ing, inter­view­ing, and social media team. Yvonne Bui­js-Man­cu­so, as the AR liai­son, keeps the board up to date.

Enjoy the show! We will be here to wel­come you when SJIMA can open.

The exhi­bi­tion is spon­sored by the Town of Fri­day Har­bor, Nation­al Endow­ment for the Arts, Wash­ing­ton State Arts Com­mis­sion, Print­onyx, Har­bor Rentals, and Browne’s Home Center.
