PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College Longhouse Art Gallery will present an exhibit, “Intertribal Canoe Journeys on the Salish Sea,” in the House of Learning Peninsula College Longhouse beginning Tuesday.
The exhibit will be on view through December at the longhouse on the Peninsula College campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Admission is free.
The collection of photographs were taken throughout 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 a 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 the Northwind Art Center’s Art in the Library Program.
The exhibit is one of several events planned this year and next to celebrate the longhouse’s 10th anniversary.
