Jake Seniuk book celebrated

PORT ANGELES — Studium Generale will celebrate today the publication of “Strait Art: An Anthology of Exhibitions from the Upper Left-Hand Corner,” a book of essays by the late Jake Seniuk, artist and longtime director of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, and images of the art and photography these essays engaged.

The event, which begins at 12:30 p.m. today, includes a slide show and readings from Seniuk’s essays.

Join the Zoom meeting at zoom.us/j/95156136928. The meeting ID is 951 5613 6928.

The book chronicles various media, including paintings, sculptures, photography, and mixed media. Among the artists featured are painter Alfredo Arreguin, photographer Mary Peck, Chimacum artist Tom Jay, Peninsula College professor Michael Paul Miller, glass artist Dale Chihuly, and the late photographer Mary Randlett.

“Strait Art” is a 276-page recollection of the exhibits Seniuk curated, rich with the essays he wrote for the newsletter On Center and photographs of exhibits he envisioned then brought to light.

Donna James, Seniuk’s partner, and his colleague, Kathleen Moles, completed the book in spring 2020, finishing a $40,000 project.

To order a copy of the book and be added to the mailing list for future events, contact Moles at [email protected].
