This is a quick announcement that I will be speaking at the Ravens Nest on Vashon Island on September 7th. There will be more info shortly. In conversation with the owner of the gallery they are having an opening artist reception which will include appearances by artists including myself and some activities surrounding the theme of the exhibit "Salmon". Some time ago I lent a design to the book published on the subject of the archaoligical history of the island. Not many know but this was the territory of the Puyallup people. I have a side project coming along in cooperation with author Jay Miller whom I recenlty worked with on the Chehalis tribal hotel project who has been researching village sites there. I have work in the exhibit and look forward to setting up a more in depth talk about the isalnd history and share local Native culture with the people who are interested in a visit at the venue. Please come back as more info becomes available.
