ART AiSLE: David Ridgway
09/10/20 – 09/30/20
Since its inception in 1985 WaterWorks Gallery has a tradition of reinvention. The 2020 show schedule broadens the concept of the ART AiSLE. Monthly, the gallery hosts a recent body of work highlighting artists from the Pacific Northwest.
WaterWorks Gallery is proud to present David Ridgway's landscape and abstract oil paintings. David pares the landscape down to interlocking colored shapes and paints these shapes in bold colors. He expresses his love of form, in particular of the gable as seen in the barns, farmhouses and summer cottages of the Skagit Flats or the San Juan Islands. His abstracts portray the intersections of small spaces using color to push and pull the shapes in forward or receding motions.

Opening September 3 with new exhibits
Our doors will open beginning September 3rd!
We miss you – but get to welcome you very soon!
Since closing our doors in March, we have been preparing for this moment. SJIMA has collaborated with our County health authorities, the Washington State Arts Commission and governor's office on a proposal that has allowed museums to reopen in a Phase Two scenario. We are ready! (See our COVID plan at www.sjima.org)
While closed, SJIMA volunteers have been busy planning new exhibitions for 2021and discovering innovative ways to deliver them. Recently, the live online gallery tour with June Sekiguchi and Holly Ballard Martz brought the artists into about 80 homes. New on September 3 is an installation by Samuel Stubblefield that will challenge us to look at art in completely new ways and have us asking, “How did he do that?”
Also showing is Deon Venter's MISSING/ HIGHWAY OF TEARS .

ZOOM: Lynda Mapes: Mother Orca Tahlequah: the Whale Who Changed the Conversation
The story in the Seattle Times of mother orca Tahlequah and her swim with her calf drew six million page views around the world and sparked a new push for salmon and orca recovery here at home. Join Lynda Mapes, environmental reporter, for a conversation about covering Tahlequah and the award-winning in-depth Seattle Times series, Hostile Waters. She will read from her new book-in-progress, to be published by Braided River in spring of 2021, about the southern residents and their struggle to survive.
