Friday Harbor Grange, 152 - 1st Street

The Friday Harbor Film Festival and the FRIENDS of the San Juans are sponsoring the screening of the film, Coal Road to China. This visually powerful film gets to the heart of coal company plans to strip mine the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming and transport the coal by train to Washington and Oregon where it would be loaded onto massive cargo ships bound for Asia.

The Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point, near Bellingham Bay could ship as much as 48 million metric tons of coal to Asia every year. This added shipping traffic passing through the waters surrounding the San Juan Islands would greatly increase the threats of collisions, air pollution, spills and global climate change.

See more than a dozen working studios all around the island on this self-guided tour. The artists open up their personal studio spaces, often including artistic gardens, to the public for an entire weekend at the end of spring each year.

This free community event celebrates the way San Juan Island artists work and live. In addition to displaying their work, including sculpture, jewelry, pottery, printmaking, glass, fiber and fine art, the artists share insights into how their art is created and what inspires and motivates them in their chosen media. This year the tour includes a raffle for two nights lodging at the McCulloch Guesthouse Garden Cottage by the Sea, plus a $50 gift certificate for dinner at Vinny's Restaurant. Details available at each studio, where you can fill out a form at any studio for a chance to win.

WaterWorks Gallery

The working side of the maritime world presented as abstracted ideas painted on canvas. The partial plimsoll marker, the depth lines and the pock-marked hulls... all these marks are the icons that Melinda translates into paintings, some real, and some created are the icons/symbols translated from the freighters, tankers and tugs of the working maritime world. These vessels ply the seas, 24/7/365. Their hulls bear the interactions of hulls and dock, flecking paint revealing the steel hulls and the slime that clings to the waterline. Her canvases are a language where we are guided to see these marks, from a painter whose long association with this world is celebrated. This is the world of Melinda Hannigan. 

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