Apr. 5, 2018 - May. 30, 2018: LOPEZ ISLAND PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY (LIPS) Photography Exhibit
Anne Whirledge-Karp

The Lopez Island Photographic Society was formed in early 2016 for photography enthusiasts in our island community. Members of "LIPS' have been meeting monthly, teaching each other, sharing techniques, ideas, and skills. Sometimes you can find them photographing together under the night sky, chasing the light at the edges of the day, in and out of sunshine and raindrops. This is their 2nd photography exhibit together.

Participating Photographers are: Gary Zerbst, Glenda Pugerude, Liela Nicholas, Marge McCoy, Gene Helfman, Lee Eggert, Bill Evans, Peter Cavanagh, Anne Whirledge-Karp, and Clarissa Szabados-Mish

LAG Grant Recipient 2017: Congratulations, Brenna Jael!
Did you know that The Lopez Artist Guild (LAG) started as the "Home Economics Club" in 1924? LAG is a non-profit organization with a mission to support the visual arts and artists on Lopez Island. Each year we offer a "Grants and Scholarships" program to people pursuing visual arts education, specialized supplies and equipment.

The Shirley Wright Scholarship offers up to $1000 to a graduating High School Senior who is committed to pursuing visual art and has been accepted to an accredited instituion. This year there were no applicants.

The Financial Aid Grant is offered to Lopez artists or craftspeople to help pay for materials, equipment and/or training in a visual arts field.

For 2017, an award was made to Brenna Jael to purchase a specialized tool for bookbinding with leather. It is a device called a "Scharffix", and it is used to make leather edges very thin for book spines, corners and decorative leather work. Brenna is committed to the tradition and craft of making books and hopes to teach more classes in the Islands.
