Archipelago ⏤ Contemporary Art of the Salish Sea
12 Artists  |  6 Mediums  | 3  Exhibitions  |  2 Countries |  1 Sea

Salt Spring Arts is thrilled for the 16th annual Spring Art Show to present a unique and important cultural exchange between two of North America’s most feted arts communities – the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada, and the San Juan Islands of Washington State, USA.

Southern Gulf Islands Artist ⏤ Jane Kidd

The tapestries in Archipelago are from two ongoing series, ‘Inheritance’, and ‘nothing is indifferent’. I see this current work as a warning of environmental disaster and a call to pay attention and recognize our complicity in environmental carelessness. I also offer the opportunity to celebrate the skill and value of the handmade object encouraging the viewer to look closely and pay attention. Actions that have a parallel value in our relationship with the world around us.

In collaboration with the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, and ArtSpring.
