Uprising art exhibit in Winslow

The Island Gallery will present “Protest” as the exhibition for August.

Organizers of the new show note that protest, in its various forms, has been a tool for expressing opinions, thoughts and disagreements that have been prompted by events or policies of governments or societal groups. While the protests of the 1960s may have become distant memories for some and badges of honor for others, current times have created a climate that calls up voices to be heard once again.

Presented on the Winslow gallery’s walls are powerful pieces addressing historical social issues that remain unresolved, and are too often quickly forgotten by larger society. The show’s art offers a stark reminder that while progress is often the province of the activist, in one way or another, at one time or another, we are all called upon to be activists in our own world.

The exhibition features the work of Andrea K. Lawson (Port Hadlock), Karna McKinney (Bainbridge Island), John Taylor (Seattle), Earnest Thomas (Seattle), and Carletta Carrington Wilson (Seattle).

The show opens during the first First Friday Artwalk, with an artists’ reception next week from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3. The Jenny Davis Jazz Quartet will provide musical entertainment on the plaza.

The Island Gallery is at 400 Winslow Way East, Suite 120. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
