Jan Murphy Joins SJIMA in Marketing

Posted October 12, 2021 at 5:48 am by

The San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art (SJIMA) in Fri­day Har­bor is excit­ed to announce that Jan Mur­phy is join­ing our mar­ket­ing team.

As an artist, Jan has been a fre­quent exhibitor in the annu­al SJIMA Artists’ Reg­istry show.  Her works include paint­ings and mixed media assem­blage art.  Her work has been exhib­it­ed in sev­er­al gal­leries through­out the Pacif­ic Northwest.

Jan Mur­phy has been a res­i­dent of San Juan Island since 2010 and has been active in the com­mu­ni­ty since then. She has par­tic­u­lar­ly been inter­est­ed in the areas of ani­mal wel­fare and the arts.

Many may know her as hav­ing served on sev­er­al local boards, Jan has focused a great deal of time on vol­un­teerism to con­tribute and give back to the com­mu­ni­ty she loves to call home.   Her vol­un­teer activ­i­ties have includ­ed work for The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety of Fri­day Har­bor, San Juan Island Hos­pice, The Home Trust, The San Juan Island ACLU and Wolf Hollow.

If you have read the Pet of the Week col­umn in the past, you will be famil­iar with her work. Jan has always been impressed with the exhi­bi­tions and pro­grams at SJIMA and looks for­ward to this new challenge.

Jan shares stu­dio space with sev­en oth­er artists at The Fri­day Har­bor Ate­lier and often exhibits her work at shows and recep­tions there.  She is a mem­ber of the Ate­lier Mas­ters group and often teach­es art work­shops there.
