“Cold River Blues” is one of three paintings by Homer artist Asia Freemen selected for this year’s All-Alaska Juried Art Exhibition at the Anchorage Museum.
Freeman was awarded $250 for her landscape paintings. Her exhibit shows through Feb. 3, 2013. The highly competitive exhibition drew 479 submissions by 140 Alaska artists. Massachusetts-based juror Susan Cross selected 40 artworks by 27 different artists.
Homer ceramic artist and teacher Maygen Janetta also had two pieces selected.

Poets, dancers ‘Nervous for Love’
Spenard JazzFest poets and dancers are bringing their show to Homer, 7 p.m. Friday at the Bunnell Gallery. “Nervous for Love” is described as, “Random and rowdy. Reckless and tender.”
The show is a “pay what you can” event, with a chunk of the revenue going to support Cirque Literary Journal. Contact Sandy Kleven, curator/manager at (907)332-6735 for more information.

Artist shares work with public
Seattle jewelry artist Micki Lippe is Artist in Residence at Bunnell until Oct. 17 and offers a design workshop this weekend.
If you don’t have time for the workshop, but would still like to know more about her work and design techniques, please join her at Bunnell for a free presentation, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.
The presentation will reflect on some of the ideas from the design workshop, as well as Lippe’s work and processes.
