PORT ANGELES — Artwork by Susan Hamilton, Haida Master Bead Artist, will be on display in House of Learning, Peninsula College Longhouse from Tuesday to Dec. 14.
The exhibit includes a series of beaded Octopus Bags and other beaded artworks. Each of Hamilton’s Octopus Bags is personalized for an individual; the works were inspired by a display of these distinctly shaped bags that Hamilton viewed at the Alaska State Museum while visiting her family in Juneau, Alaska.
Much of Hamilton’s art celebrates her culture with traditional design and is interwoven with Alaskan scenery and wildlife.
Hamilton graduated from Peninsula College in June 2023. She was the Longhouse Guest Artist in 2012 and is excited to return to the Art Gallery with a new collection of beaded artworks to showcase.
A free artist reception will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in House of Learning, Peninsula College Longhouse. Fall quarter gallery hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.
