We were right. While we knew Anchorage was getting walloped by snow, it DUMPED in Girdwood! This is a picture of our street. The trees were so heavy with snow they formed arches for us to drive under! There was so much snow we couldn’t get up our stairs to the front door (do you like my $1.50 wreath I bought at the Thrift store this week hanging on the front door?!) without shoveling a path. Thankfully Bob with his front end loader had visited our house and the drive was clear. Over a foot in the last couple of days has left our neighborhood looking like a heavily frosted Gingerbread village and with four-wheel drive it’s lovely.
For my friends in Anchorage wanting some FRESH art, my friend Katie Sevigny just told me that she and the Upstairs Studio Artists at 406 G Street, between 4th & 5th Ave. -the stairs are located next to Pils Deli. are having an open to the public studio sale this Sunday from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. For more information give Katie a call at 258-ARTS (2787).
CaFÉ Help: If you’re an Alaska artist (other artists may find this site informative as well because it is a National data base of Artist Opportunities) interested in participating or applying for % for Art projects, don’t miss this teleconference! The Alaska State Council on the Arts has just started using the paperless CaFÉ online application process for Calls for Art and other art projects. *This is not to be confused for applying for the Municipality of Anchorage 1% For Art Projects which is still a paper application process.
