Student art exhibit at PAFAC moved

The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center (PAFAC) will kick off the year with a reflective look back on the past two years under the pandemic with the center’s latest exhibition, “The World on Pause: Youth Perspectives on a Generation-Defining Experience.”

The exhibition opens Thursday, Jan. 13, during normal gallery hours, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The gallery will be open Thursday- Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. An opening reception is set for 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18, in the Esther Webster Gallery. All are invited to attend this free event. The exhibition will remain on display through Feb. 27.

The opening was originally scheduled for Jan. 6 but was postponed because of inclement weather.

Over the last several months, PAFAC staff and photographer Amy McIntyre have partnered with Port Angeles High School teachers to engage more than 500 students in a conversation about their perspectives on the pandemic. Students were asked to share how their lives have shifted and changed under the pandemic and were led through a series of online workshops to help them develop their photo documentary skills.

Staff and PAFAC program coordinator Sarah Jane and McIntyre as curators for the exhibition have selected images based on their content, composition and complementary nature.
