The Museum Board of Directors held a party to thank Judith Williams, the curatorial students and everyone who helped make the Refuge Cove exhibition a huge success. We were surprised and delighted when Judith presented the Museum with a rubbing she created with the late author, Beth Hill.
The image is of a Petroglyph on Marina Island off the south end of Cortes Island. Beth Hill was an expert on Northwest coastal rock art. She and her husband Ray travelled the entire coast making Petroglyph rubbings for the BC Archeology Department that are documented in their book "Indian Petroglyphs of the Pacific Northwest". Beth undertook to teach Judy how to make rubbings by having her create this piece at a carved rock she had found on Marina.
Beth and Ray Hill were members of the Refuge Cove Co-op in the 1980s. Their granddaughter, Sarah Kerman, is a current member.
