Join Alchemy Art Center and the San Juan Islands Museum of Art for the final installment in their 2022 Artist Talk Series.
This talk will feature visiting artist Katey Rissi and local artist Shannon Borg for an in-depth look into their personal histories and processes. Katey Rissi is an artist, herbalist, and educator based in the Pacific Northwest. Her artmaking practice is interdisciplinary and process-oriented, with a focus on printmaking and fiber art. Katey’s work explores ecological relationships, place, ancestral connection, and environmental grief. She also runs an herbal medicine project, the Salish Sea Apothecary, focused on herbal mutual aid. Katey is a resident artist at Alchemy as part of the Artists in Community program.

She lives in the San Juan Islands where she is a member of the Friday Harbor Atelier community of artists.
