Raven Skyriver: SURGE

Young glass maestro Raven Skyriver (Tlingit) returns for an exhibition of sea-life from oceans and river systems that are threatened by pollution, ocean acidification, and over-fishing. Skyriver was born in the San Juan Islands in Northwest Washington, raised with a constant connection to nature. In his life he has seen that the Puget Sound and wider Salish Sea are the foundation of life in this region. The health of the rivers is the health of our Sound; its health is the health of our watershed. All water systems are connected, and if one is threatened and compromised, so are they all.

This exhibition is also a family affair: it will include a collaborative work by Raven and fellow glassblower–and wife–Kelly O’Dell, and the photography of his sister, Summer Moon Scriver (Tlingit). During the exhibition opening we are proud to host a pre-release book signing by Raven’s mother, Irene Skyriver (Tlingit), who has written a book on her family history and her wild solo kayak journey from Alaska to Washington.
