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 ⏤ John Macdonald

My process of creativity is very organic: incidental outside events through all kinds of engagements influence what I do or don’t do, I try to assess the present strengths and weaknesses. I usually have many pieces on the go at the same time. As many as one hundred. Each normally takes a number of sittings. Some over a duration of years. The work in Archipelago, I would not describe as a series, though they potentially relate. They are all, for me, unique individual works.

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