  • Special Event Gallery Walks and Talks by June Sekiguchi and Holly Ballard Martz
    1:00 am-2:00 pm

    San Juan Islands Museum of Art 540 Spring Street, Friday Harbor, WA 98250

    San Juan Islands Museum of Art 540 Spring Street, Friday Harbor, WA 98250

    Date:  Saturday, April 25, 2020   1:00 pm            Location: SJIMA

     

    The artists creating The Pulse of Water , June Sekiguchi, and Domestic Bliss , Holly Ballard Martz, at SJIMA will be giving informative and insightful gallery walks through their exhibitions followed by presentations of past and upcoming works.

     

    Sekiguchi’s art installation which includes a bridge and is glowing in the Atrium Gallery is a way to honor important people, events and experiences in her life.  “Each year the monsoon rains wash the bridge away. Each year the people rebuild it. It is a metaphor for the Buddhist ideology that everything in life is temporary,” Sekiguchi said.

     

    Ballard Martz’ art takes household objects of domestic labor and transforms them into art symbolizing obstacles that impede the quest for gender equality.  Holly explains, “I deliberately chose to work with materials and processes long considered the female domain as a reminder that with every prick of the pin and curve of the wire, women’s work is truly never done.”

     

    The talks are free with normal museum admission which is $10 and free to members and those 18 and under.

     

    No reservations are required.
