    Channel Islands Maritime Museum Releases Custom Channel Islands Breeze Candle to Celebrate The Exhibition Resilience: Art of the Channel Islands 

    Oxnard, CA: As part of its celebration for the upcoming exhibition Resilience: Art of the Channel Islands, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum is releasing a custom candle in celebration of these unique islands. 

    Featuring the beautiful Channel Islands artwork of Jody Hewgill, and named Channel Islands Breeze, the candle was created in collaboration with local candle crafting business Matte Black Candle Co. Using a coco soy wax, a new wild sage scent was also created for this unique candle.   


    Fifteen percent of the proceeds from the sale of the candle will 

    be donated to the Friends of the Island Fox organization. Friends 

    of the Island Fox is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, which 

    supports efforts to preserve and protect the island fox on the 

    California Channel Islands through conservation, research, and 

    education programs. The candles are available exclusively 

    through BlueFin Gifts, the Museum gift shop. Each candle retails 

    for $25.00 and comes in a black glass jar with a lid. 

    “Friends of the Island Fox has played a critical role in protecting 

    these beautiful animals that are unique to our treasured Channel 

    Islands. We loved the idea of these candles helping to support the 

    critical work that this group does,” says the Museum’s Executive 

    Director, Adri Howe. “As we celebrate the Islands through the eyes 

    of five local artists, it gives us an opportunity to reflect on the 

    extreme importance of preservation and protection of the fauna 

    (and flora) that are found on the islands.” 

    The exhibition Resilience: Art of the Channel Islands opens on September 9, 2022 and will run through December 19, 2022. Entrance to the exhibition is included in the price of admission to CIMM. The exhibition is sponsored, in part, by Vintage Marina and Island Packers.
