Anyone who visits the scenic, seaside art town of Homer, Alaska, usually does for two good reasons, Halibut Fishing and Gallery Hopping, and not in that order! I love Homer, Art patrons love Homer and other Artists love Homer. There are many Galleries to visit along the Spit and along the main street, Pioneer Avenue where my work is featured at the Fireweed Gallery. Another one of my favorite shops along Pioneer Avenue is Blackberry Bog. Gina Hollomon sent me this postcard announcing that the famous Bunnell Street Art Center near Bishop's Beach in Homer, will have the 2009 Plate Project travel to Anchorage April 17 - 27 at Out North. There will be an Opening Friday, April 17th, from 5 -7 PM.
The Plate Project is Bunnell Street Arts Center's Annual Membership Drive, coordinated by the very talented Ahna Iredale since 1994. Plates may be selected with memberships from $100 to $1,000. A membership to the Bunnell nurtures and supports innovative art in all media for diverse audiences. If you can't make the Plate sale, at least check out what the Bunnell offers and take a moment to look at Ahna's latest body of work decorated with clay from Kachemak Bay using sgrafitto (I've seen various spellings of this) technique.
OK, since I was shamelessly Blogging about HOMER, Alaska, I thought I should promote the BEST Halibut Charter outfit
-our friends Geri and Sean at North Country Charters! This is me and my bestest friend Patty (after my Show opening last fall at Fireweed Gallery), us girls SMOKED all of the guys on the boat! I even caught the largest Halibut, AND the whole boat limited out -thanks to Captain Sean, who always knows where the fish are. Mmmmmm....Halibut Tacos!
