Lopez Artist Guild 2018 Scholarship Recipient: Jonathan Doherty
The $1,000.00 Shirley Wright Scholarship for a Graduating High School Senior has been awarded by Lopez Artist Guild to Jonathan Doherty. He will pursue a degree in film with a minor in art at Central Washington University. Over the past 4 years his artistic focus has been glass mosaics, pointillism, and photography. His goal is to develop his artistic talents into a marketable skill while pursuing what he loves.

The LAG Scholarship and Grant Committee along with the LAG Membership is proud to be able to award Jonathan this scholarship.

Lopez Artist Guild Grant Recipients have been selected for 2018.

Jan Scilipoti applied for assistance to attend a Pratt Fine Arts class in Seattle to learn lost wax casting in jewelry making. Although she is committed to continuing to build her jewelry by hand, this skill will deepen her work. Jan has served LAG with her time and leadership in the past as president. LAG contributed a $500.00 grant award to support her in this endeavor.

Summer Scriver applied for a grant to help her set up a small photography studio in her home. Having worked as a photographer for 25 years, she is recommitting to her art and will focus on formal indoor portrait photography. Her main expenditure will be lighting and LAG contributed a $500.00 grant award towards this need.

The LAG Scholarship and Grant Committee, along with the LAG Membership, is proud to be able to award grants to these talented artists.

On Lopez Island
Lopez Island Photographic Society "LIPS"

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 and 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. All levels of experience are welcome and encouraged. Our purpose is to help each other to learn in a mutually supportive environment.

We meet at the Lopez Library Community Room on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Please come and join us.
