The Peninsula College Longhouse Art Gallery will present, Intertribal Canoe Journeys on the Salish Sea, in the ʔaʔkʷustəŋáw̕txʷ “House of Learning” Peninsula College Longhouse, October 3 through December 2017.
The exhibit is part of many events during the 2017/18 calendar year, celebrating the Peninsula College Longhouse’s 10th anniversary. The collection of photographs have been taken over the years by multiple photographers. The images capture the many phases and stages of canoe journeys such as the blessing of a canoe, tribal pullers arriving with “paddles up”, singing and drumming, the many volunteers that support canoe journeys, and raft of canoes waiting their turn to come ashore.
This display was made possible by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Tribal Elder Celeste Dybeck and her husband Don, and Northwind Art Center’s Art in the Library Program. The exhibit, located on the main PC campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd, is free and open to the public. Longhouse fall quarter hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
