Alche­my Art Cen­ter shares news about their upcom­ing pub­lic exhibition.

This spring, Alche­my Art Cen­ter part­nered with the San Juan Island Con­ser­va­tion Dis­trict and the Madrona Insti­tute on the first ever Art+Environment pro­gram, a 10-week arts and envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship pro­gram host­ed at Alche­my and geared toward mid­dle school-age kids.

Each week, stu­dents were instruct­ed by dif­fer­ent guest pro­fes­sion­als in arts and envi­ron­men­tal fields, cov­er­ing top­ics like sense of place, reuse and upcy­cling, and design/messaging. Guest instruc­tors includ­ed fine arts pro­fes­sor Danielle Dean, biol­o­gist and for­ager Kari Kos­ki, founder and direc­tor of Back­bone Cam­paign Bill Moy­er, botan­i­cal dyer and print­mak­er Katey Ris­si, and founder of the Lopez ReMak­ery Niky­ta Palmisani.

On Fri­day, May 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. the pub­lic is invit­ed to an exhi­bi­tion dis­play­ing the incred­i­ble body of work this group of young peo­ple has cre­at­ed over the last 10 weeks, includ­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, upcy­cled fash­ion, recy­cled clay sculp­ture, found object assem­blage, cyan­otype, print­mak­ing, and more. The exhi­bi­tion and recep­tion will be held in the dome space at Alche­my. Light refresh­ments will be served.

Alche­my is locat­ed at 1255 Wold Rd. Vis­it our con­tact page for direc­tions and acces­si­bil­i­ty infor­ma­tion.
