The Whale Museum is pleased to welcome Frances Robertson as part of the 2014 Summer Lecture Series.

Minke whales are one of the smallest baleen whales, growing up to 30 feet in length.  In the Northeast Pacific this little whale appears to be rare, found in only small numbers, in a few places at certain times of year –despite being the world’s most common baleen whale.  Here in the Salish Sea Minke whales are seen regularly from April to September, however fewer than 600 whales are thought to occur off the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington with fewer still in British Columbian waters.

In this talk Frances Robertson will delve into the fascinating life history of the Minke whale.  She will also introduce the work of the Northeast Pacific Minke Whale Project sharing the project’s early findings, their current work and ideas for future research.

Frances Robertson is a marine wildlife biologist with over a decade of marine mammal research experience. Currently, she works as an environmental consultant and divides her time between Vancouver, BC and San Juan Island.

Working outdoors is a marvelous experience and humbling at the same time. Students with little or no experience in outdoor pastel painting will truly appreciate the immediacy of this saturated dry pigment. In addition, students will learn the benefits of layering and mark making as well as observational skills.

Whenever I paint outdoors, "en plein aire", I bring my indoor experience of looking closely at bounced light and surrounding colors and values. We will start off with this indoor instruction. Segments will include observation through still life, familiarization with outdoor equipment and the importance of simultaneous contrast in your painting. Before you work in color some elements in design and composition will be focused upon as well.

Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

Dates & Locations:  

July 9 - Doe Bay Resort & Retreat, Orcas Island
