SJIMA Exhibition, June 2-September 7, 2020 / Calls & Submissions
SJIMA wants to feature a site specific installation or sculpture in its most visible gallery. We would like an African American sculptor who works in glass, wood, metal or mixed media and addresses messages of African diaspora and/or African American themes.
The other gallery is featuring the African Twilight photographs of Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher who have documented the African ceremonies, rituals and celebrations before they disappear. Their work spans 15 years of work across the African continent.
SJIMA embraces meaningful and often difficult topics as we challenge social and environmental issues of our time.
We have a large and visible exhibition space for the summer of 2020. The space is warm in the summer and sunlight comes through the glass, so sun or heat-sensitive medium are not protected and will not be featured in this space. The San Juan Islands are a huge tourist destination with over 400,000 visitors a year, most in the summer, and the SJIMA is an established and known destination in the visual arts.
See past exhibitions and the museum at www.sjima.org Photos of the glass atrium are on this site. This opportunity is not listed on our web site; contact Diane (see below).
