The body of work of almost 56 years expresses Lumi’s joy in experimenting with glazes, firing and Raku pottery. At the exhibition Lumi Verdugo: Of My Hands 1962-2018 now at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA) visitors can discover the varied faces of clay works, including the use of local island clay.

When in her exhibit, most experience a sense of peace and calm and respite from busy lives, exactly as Verdugo intended.

Educated in Chile and having taught at Lakeside School in Seattle, Verdugo has made Friday Harbor home since 2001. She has built her dream studio and creates a wide range of drawings and ceramics.

Upstairs, in the workshop area, a film of Verdugo’s talk opening the exhibition explains the use of heat, smoke and firing in fascinating detail. The tape runs in a loop, so you can walk in at any time and catch the presentation.

This exhibition is part of the yearlong theme 2018 THE FEMALE GAZE Part 3 ��" The Woman as Visionary and Creator.

The show is open until December 10 on Friday-Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 540 Spring Street in Friday Harbor. Admission is $10 for entrance to all the exhibits and free to members and those 18 and under. Mondays are Pay As You Can Days.

Other activities such as Art For Fun for adults and Fall Family Art Days are in full swing at SJIMA. Go to for more details.
