Since 1991, Bunnell Street Art Center has been the focus of creativity in Old Town at the corner of Bunnell and Main, before the new parts of Homer grew up. Once again, their art on plates is drawing members and attention.
Art Plates, created this year by numerous local artists, became available at $100+ membership levels on May 11, and those who support Bunnell Street Arts Center at higher levels, $250+, were invited to select their 2013 Art Plates earlier. But many are still available for people wishing to support the art center.
The Plate Project is coordinated by Homer potter, Ahna Iredale and sponsored by many popular local artists who generously created the plates.
Although some early joiners have already selected their plates, many outstanding works of art on plates still adorn the walls of the Bunnell for new joiners to select from.
The non-profit Bunnell Street Arts Center has been the focus of much creative activity for many years and it is supported by resident members and grants from the Alaska State Council on the Arts, Homer Foundation, City of Homer Grants Program through The Homer Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Rasmussen Foundation, Western States Arts Federation, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and the New England Foundation for the Arts.
Anyone who can’t get to Bunnell to make their donation and pick out a plate can call 235-2662 or email adele@bunnellstreetgallery.org.
