Her art portrays themes of salmon and community, and the people and landscapes of Bristol Bay. In her dynamic paintings, these realms often mingle, with salmon blending seamlessly into the sky, or people becoming visually intertwined with the land. Her latest piece is a mural, located on a wall on Kanakanak Road headed into Dillingham. In the mural, vibrant salmon strips hang drying along the water, with the silhouettes of drift and settnetters harvesting salmon in the background. KDLG’s Jessie Sheldon sat down with Apay’uq to talk about her work in Bristol Bay, and the role fish plays in her art. https://www.kdlg.org/fisheries/2023-07-25/muralist-apayuq-moore-portrays-salmon-and-way-of-life-in-bristol-bay Celebrity Chef Antonia Lofaso Slated to Headline Will Alaska Pollock Annual Meeting Fishermen's News - July 26, 2023 Los Angeles television personality and celebrity chef Antonia Lofaso is on tap to headline the fifth annual Wild Alaska Pollock meeting on Sept. 28 at the Four Seasons Seattle hotel. https://fishermensnews.com/celebrity-chef-antonia-lofaso-slated-to-headline-will-alaska-pollock-annual-meeting/ Pacific Seafood Processors Association 1900 W Emerson Place Suite 205, Seattle, WA 98119 Phone: 206.281.1667 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Website: www.pspafish.net Our office days/hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.
