Treasure Maps Show-OPEN TO ALL

OPENING: Friday October 2 at VALISE
                  6:00-9:00 PM
                  2:00-5:00 PM
                  4:00-6:00 PM

VALISE Gallery invites all islanders (and non-islanders) to submit an artwork of their making for our October exhibit entitled “Treasure Maps.”  We invite you to create a map of anything that is important to you, in any medium, for inclusion in the show.  The show will run the full month of October.

Your map should be a map of anything you want to illustrate.  Examples might include places near your home that are important to you, places that have been important to you in the past or are important in your family’s history, or even depictions of changes on Vashon or elsewhere.  You can map your kitchen, the route you take to work, or where your dog likes to do his duty (from which your neighbors might discover who left that mess in their front yard).  It can be a road map, a topographic map, a family history map, or a map of where one can find the best blackberries or where your favorite trees used to be.  It can even be a map that leads to buried treasure.  We only ask that you map something that has meaning for you.

For further details on when and how to submit your map, as well as instructions on preparation, please contact Greg Wessel at  You can also pick up a copy of the instruction sheet at the gallery.
