Roger created the Salmon Wheel & designed the Whale Wheel on the Coupeville wharf as well as the Water Festival logos for the last 25 years. Roger died in January of 2014 but his legacy will live on as his wife, Sara, and the PCWF Assocoation offer many of his prints and cards for sale to the public at this year's Native Spirit Art Show.

Jackie Feusier had brought back to life many of the works donated to PCWF by Roger Purdue in collaboration with Roger and then with his widow Sarah. Limited PCWF editions, printed by another benefactor, Dennis Hill, will be available at the Art Show along with the PCWF Posters and Art Cards. Sarah will also have other works by Roger available for sale.
