DEEP DIVE’s art will dazzle visitors as they learn about the many denizens of the deep and the icons of the Salish Sea.

Orcas.   Jellyfish.   Starfish.   Salmon.   Herring.

Nudibranch.   Anemone.   Humpback Whales.   Octopus.

This summer, visitors can view our Salish Sea beauties through the eyes of the finest Pacific Northwest artists. While the multi-media exhibition will delight with glowing art by many artists, such as Raven Skyriver, it will also send messages about threats to the approximately 130 variously endangered species here.

Are we losing the race to save our beloved native species?

Additionally, there will be gallery walks with exhibiting artists and custom music by world-renowned composer Alex Shapiro who – as an “Islander” – is generously donating her music.

July 13 is our satellite event titled “DEEP DIVE: the documentaries” which is held at the San Juan Island Community Theater. See our “Learn” tab for more information and registration.

Art inspires, uplifts, educates, provides perspective and joy and provokes change.

Join the art of discovery at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art – where there is always something new.


Also, in Andrew Shewman’s Waterline installation, a whale fluke will move within the art morphing from a human to vessel form, astounding visitors.
