Alche­my shares news about their last Artist Talk event of the year, fea­tur­ing one vis­it­ing and one local artist.

This month, join Alche­my Art Cen­ter and the San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art for the final install­ment in their 2022 Artist Talk Series. This event will take place Sun­day, Oct. 16 from 5:30–7:30 p.m. in the upstairs work­shop area of the SJIMA at 540 Spring St. The meet­ing will also be acces­si­ble via Zoom.

The talk will fea­ture vis­it­ing artist Katey Ris­si and local artist Shan­non Borg for an in-depth look into their per­son­al his­to­ries and processes.

Katey Ris­si is an artist, herbal­ist, and edu­ca­tor based in the Pacif­ic North­west. Her art­mak­ing prac­tice is inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and process-ori­ent­ed, with a focus on print­mak­ing and fiber art. Katey’s work explores eco­log­i­cal rela­tion­ships, place, ances­tral con­nec­tion, and envi­ron­men­tal grief. She also runs an herbal med­i­cine project, the Sal­ish Sea Apothe­cary, focused on herbal mutu­al aid. Katey is a res­i­dent artist at Alche­my as part of the Artists in Com­mu­ni­ty program.

Shan­non Borg is a painter, writer, and art and busi­ness coach. She start­ed paint­ing at age 50, study­ing in the Trow­bridge Ate­lier at the Gage Acad­e­my of Art in Seat­tle. She lives in the San Juan Islands where she is a mem­ber of the Fri­day Har­bor Ate­lier com­mu­ni­ty of artists. Her oil paint­ings cap­ture the strange­ness and mys­tery of the beach­es of the San Juan Islands.

This event is part of Artists in Com­mu­ni­ty, which is sup­port­ed by the Nation­al Endow­ment forthe Arts, ArtsWA, the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, the Tulalip Char­i­ta­ble Fund, and by gen­er­ous dona­tions from mem­bers of our community.
