SJCT and San Juan Islands Museum of Art are pleased to present a joint production. Our two organizations have collaborated during their lull in normal operations to produce a series of mini-documentaries highlighting local artists.
Danielle Dean is an artist and educator whose “photography is born out of a series of meditations.” She works in dialogue with places of natural phenomena and environmental rhythms. Dean’s goal is to immerse us in these meditations, ultimately examining our own connection to our environment. How the natural world sustains us is critical to our well- being.
She earned her MFA at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston and her work is included in public and private collections. Recent exhibitions have been at Bakalar and Paine Galleries, Blue Sky Gallery, San Juan Islands Museum of Art, Amazon Headquarters, and the Aperture Foundation. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the 2019 MassArt Fellowship to The Studios at Mass MoCA, Blue Sky Gallery’s 2018 Artist Residency at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and a teaching residency at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India.
