San Juan Island
Tuesday, May 5, 2015
7:00 p.m.

A powerful film odyssey explores the shift in America’s national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. DamNation shows how far things have moved and how quickly, from the assumption 50 years ago that dams were always a power for good, to the first successful attempt to remove a marginal dam 20 years ago on the Kennebec River.

The film highlights other dam removal stories, including the Elwha and White Salmon Rivers in Washington.  Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. The film’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

Running time:  87 minutes

WaterWorks Gallery

Contemporary realism painted with depth and emotive qualities that remind us of our place in the world. Anelecia was grown and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She paints meditative and reflective paintings about our relationship with objects. Her quiet paintings of everyday objects reflect the passage of time...the used piece of soap, the crumbled up ticket and the stuffed animals. All these images strike a chord within us. Her paintings allow reminiscing about these special moments, in which time is fluid and moving.

Reception for the artist will be on Saturday, May 9th from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 23 at 2:00 p.m. The artist will talk about her recent works.

Gallery open Monday, Wednesday - Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. other times by appointment
