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.
