Alche­my Art Cen­ter shares news about their upcom­ing art and music performance.

Come see what Alchemy’s tal­ent­ed August/September artist cohort has been up to this sum­mer. This Tues­day, Sept. 27 from 6–9 p.m., Alche­my wel­comes you to their dome exhi­bi­tion space at 1255 Wold Rd. You will be able to pur­chase beau­ti­ful pot­tery, prints, and oth­er orig­i­nal art. This is the cul­mi­nat­ing event for Lenore Wan, Coz­ette Ellis, and Emer­ald VL, all of whom have been liv­ing and work­ing at Alche­my and inter­act­ing with the San Juan Island com­mu­ni­ty through free art activ­i­ties for the past two months.

Emer­ald will also be per­form­ing her orig­i­nal songs at 7 p.m.

Lenore Wan is a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary artist from Seat­tle work­ing in the realms of ceram­ics and illus­tra­tion. She loves to cap­ture play­ful forms and col­or­ful pat­terns in her work. At Alche­my Art Cen­ter, she’s been devel­op­ing hand-build­ing and glaz­ing tech­niques, as well as fab­ric paint­ing. She loves to work spon­ta­neous­ly and loose­ly to cap­ture the explo­rative process of art making.

Coz­ette Ellis is a visu­al artist and illus­tra­tor who has spent her time at Alche­my work­ing with dif­fer­ent forms of print­mak­ing and learn­ing ceram­ics. She is inspired by the human body in all its forms, espe­cial­ly incor­po­rat­ed with col­or and pattern.

Emer­ald VL is a vis­it­ing artist from Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia. She has a back­ground in draw­ing and paint­ing, and has spent her time here at Alche­my focus­ing on her music, and learn­ing screen print­ing & ceram­ics. At the show on the 27th Emer­ald will share some art, and a set of music she has writ­ten dur­ing her time on island.

These vis­it­ing artists are part of Alchemy’s Artists in Com­mu­ni­ty Pro­gram, which is made pos­si­ble by sup­port from the Nation­al Endow­ment for the ARts, ArtsWA, Tulalip Char­i­ta­ble Fund, San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, and by the sup­port of the San Juan Island community.
