Lee Eggert

The Lopez Island Photographic Society, LIPS, was formed in early 2016 for photography enthusiasts in our local community. They have been meeting monthly, teaching each other, sharing techniques, skills, ideas, and sometimes photographing together under the night sky or chasing the light at the edges of the day. This is their first photo exhibit together. Hours of viewing are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10:00am until 2:00pm.

LAG Grant Recipient 2017: Congratulations, Brenna Jael!
Did you know that The Lopez Artist Guild (LAG) started as the "Home Economics Club" in 1924? LAG is a non-profit organization with a mission to support the visual arts and artists on Lopez Island. Each year we offer a "Grants and Scholarships" program to people pursuing visual arts education, specialized supplies and equipment.

The Shirley Wright Scholarship offers up to $1000 to a graduating High School Senior who is committed to pursuing visual art and has been accepted to an accredited instituion. This year there were no applicants.

The Financial Aid Grant is offered to Lopez artists or craftspeople to help pay for materials, equipment and/or training in a visual arts field.

For 2017, an award was made to Brenna Jael to purchase a specialized tool for bookbinding with leather. It is a device called a "Scharffix", and it is used to make leather edges very thin for book spines, corners and decorative leather work. Brenna is committed to the tradition and craft of making books and hopes to teach more classes in the Islands.
