Green: ON THE EDGE, a visual arts mixed media competition, opened on the 4th of July weekend and ran until September 12th at IMA, on First Street in Friday Harbor.


The San Juan Islands Museum of Art & Sculpture Park (IMA) gallery show featured a fascinating collection of works by artists who have expressed what ‘green’ means to them. Everything from environmental statements, recycling taken to new and comic heights, futuristic worlds, nature in the abstract and stunning visual truths.

A mix of many of the ‘best and brightest’ artists across Washington and Oregon State entered the competition to be juried by three top contemporary art jurors from Vancouver B.C., Eric Metcalfe; Seattle, Marisa Sanchez; and Moore, Oklahoma, Tom Toperzer. ( Related Story )

The results were a fascinating collection of works by artists who have expressed what ‘green’ means to them. Everything from environmental statements, recycling taken to new and comic heights, futuristic worlds, nature in the abstract and stunning visual truths.

Fifteen of the 27 artists accepted into the Exhibition were from the San Juan Islands: 12 from San Juan, 1 each, from Orcas, Waldron, and Lopez. Other areas represented were: Anacortes, Mt. Vernon, Port Townsend, Seattle and Eugene, Oregon.

Two of the three Juror Awards were given to San Juan Island artists: Ann Walbert and Laura Bauer. Their work, along with the work of Sandra McMorris Johnson, a fiber/textile artist and photographer, from Eugene, Oregon, is featured on the beautiful IMA postcard and poster created for the show.
