Conscientious Projector -UFOs & Nukes

Join host Rob Simpson for a fascinating night! At the height of the Cold War, some "unknown force" penetrated all security systems and shut down dozens of our intercontinental ballistic missiles aimed at Russia.  Was it the Soviets?   With the fall of the USSR we find out: no.  The same thing was happening to them.  The official story at the time of these incidents has since been discredited by our own declassified Top Secret documents.

Who or what had the technology to taunt the military might of the super powers? Why was nothing destroyed?

Combining declassified documents and interviews with onsite US Air Force officers (now retired), researcher Robert Hastings has spent 40 years to create a book and short documentary exploring these cold war secrets.  What were the strange craft seen flying over our missile silos at the moment of shut down, and then darting off into the night?  Were they extraterrestrial vehicles... or "weather balloons" ...or just "swamp gas"?

Come find out!

Two View: Dana Roberts & Elizabeth Bruno

 ​Each artist is in the middle of their career. As a mid career artist, each artist draws from her inner worldly experiences to visualize her contemporary work.

​ 
Dana Roberts based on San Juan Island,  Dana Roberts’ describes her work could be described as unconscious. She does ...not thinking about what she is painting, but rather just painting her emotions, her thoughts or even the weather. Her painting technique is very time consuming as she paints and, then wipes off the canvas, stippling the surface of the canvas with her brush creating to create minute details. These strokes invoke the story of plants, of clothing or dreams.

Elizabeth Bruno, based in the Seattle area, paints stories that gathered over time, ​re​-flecting many periods in the art world​.​ A bit old fashioned in stylization, the work itself makes a contemporary statement with her subject matter – of woman working, birds singing and dogs walking. These paintings, with their flat sometimes collage surfaces, are dichotomies of days past. 

This is the 31st year WaterWorks Gallery has been located in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island. A contemporary, light-filled gallery, it continues to evolve as it remains dedicated to showing artists from the Islands, Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. The represented artists, painters, sculptors, and jewelers reflect the area’s beauty through both conventional and unusual representations. It is this Northwest flavor that makes WaterWorks Gallery the unique place it is.
