Island Museum of Art exhibits Lopez Artists

September 14 - November 17, 2007
Opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, September 14

Island Museum of Art opens "A Wild Nature", a five-person exhibition from Lopez Island. The show is curated by printmaker and sculptor Jean Behnke who says "…in some way we all manifest the dream of wild nature in our art work." Included in the exhibition are Bruce Botts, painter and printmaker, Janis Miltenberger, glass artist, Summer Moon, photographer, Jeffrey Hanks, ceramic artist and Jean Behnke, printmaker and sculptor.

Says Behnke, "In a melancholic way, this art celebrates the incorrigible tangle of a wild nature pushing through internal and external orderliness with beautiful tenacity. As in the writings of Gabriel Garcia Marquez there is a sense of the wild that is saturated with nature's heartiness and its reality as original home."

For more information about the exhibit please call

  1. 'Cala Lily' by Summer Moon is a stunning black an white Fine Art Photograph, reminiscent of Fine Art Photographer Alfred Steiglitz and/or Georgia O'Keefe's work.
