Posted May 10, 2022 at 10:55 am by San Juan Update
Here’s an update from Alchemy Art Center about their upcoming artists series, hosted by the San Juan Islands Museum of Art.
Alchemy Art Center, in partnership with the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, is hosting an artist talk series featuring visiting and local artists. Talks will take place in the upstairs workshop area of the SJIMA at 540 Spring St. from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on select Sundays between May and September.
The first talk in the series is Sunday, May 22, and features visiting artist Sarah Aineb and local artist Sam Ford. Sarah Aineb is a visual artist, mostly working in printmaking, comics and film, based in San Francisco. With most of their work being autobiographical or semi-autobiographical, their work explores the invisible connections between feeling and space and time. Whether it’s a singular drawing or a series of prints or a narrative comic, Aineb’s works illustrate the emotional imprint of personal histories on physical landscapes, altering how we see space and feelings. Sarah is living and working at Alchemy Art Center April and May as part of our Artists in Community Program.
Sam Ford is an artist from Friday Harbor, specializing in pen and ink illustration. His work has been featured on album covers, posters, and other music-related art, as well as business logos and his first published graphic novel, a retelling of the horror classic The Willows, adapted by Nathan Carson. Both artists work in the realm of drawing, illustrations, graphic design, and printmaking. They will show their work, discuss their process, and answer questions from the audience.
The next talk in the series will take place on Sunday, June 26. Visit the Alchemy Art Center website for more information.
