    Substrate: underlying currents” group of three artists share a commitment to their work.  This work carries an urgently needed and important counterbalancing voice.  One of the significant works of the exhibition is Kandis Susol’s piece “Take Refuge,” inspired by the documentary Human Flow, a film by Ai Weiwei about the 65 million refugees world-wide seeking refuge.  Moved by the suffering presented in this film, Kandis invites anyone to sit with her in silence at the Museum to raise awareness regarding this human tragedy, and to acknowledge all manifestations of suffering caused by war, famine, genocide, and environmental degradation.

    We come together to sit in silent meditation and prayer with the intention to raise up the consciousness in order to create a more compassionate world.

    No matter what your individual religious or spiritual persuasion, you are invited to join us at San Juan Islands Museum of Art from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20th and Tuesday, May 1st for a silent vigil.  A brief introduction will be followed by a 25 minute meditation, a 5 minute walking meditation, and a 20 minute sit.  The hour will end with a short “loving-kindness” prayer.

    Please call Kandis at 360-376-4962 to make a reservation as space is limited.  Chairs will be provided if requested at time of making a reservation, or you can bring your own meditation cushion.   This event is free to the public.  Donations for supporting such events are always appreciated.

    Internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning pastel landscape artist, Steven Hill, from Lopez Island, is offering his services free, for a one-time workshop for Military Veterans in partnership with the San Juan Islands Museum of Art in the upstairs workshop.  One of Steve’s typical workshops anywhere in the country averages $600-$800, just to sign-up and for basic supplies. He is a sought after pastel workshop instructor, and has taught over 70 successful workshops in the past 14 years, all over the U.S. and in Europe. Many testimonials are available, with one attached from the president of The Olympia Art League, Olympia, WA.

    This workshop will focus on all the basics that Steven teaches in his regular pastel workshops at Dakota Art Pastels and Art Center, in Mt. Vernon.

    The mini-kit ordering and contents specifics will be emailed to participants after registration, but include both hard and soft, high quality pastel sticks and various brands of the best pastel papers-enough to get you started and painting with this versatile medium. There will be a museum facilities use fee of $75, at registration; payable to the SJIMA, a basic pastel mini-kit fee and the teaching fee is waived for a total cost of $135.
