C&C Artist in residence

On Saturday, Feb. 4 from 10:30 a.m.-noon, Gail Smith and Cathy Muñoz will present on the history of the Alaska State Parks’ Artist-in-Residence Program at the Ernest Gruening Cabin.
This talk is in conjunction with an exhibit of work produced by artists-in-residence from 2015 and 2016, on display in the Museum’s Murray Gallery during the month of February, with an opening reception on Feb. 3 from 4:30-7 p.m.
The Gruening Cabin Artist-in-Residence Program began in 2015 and honors Dorothy Gruening, avid painter and late wife of Ernest Gruening, and the late Juneau artist Rie Muñoz. Artists from across the state who participate in the program stay for up to two weeks at the Ernest Gruening Cabin near Amalga Harbor from May through September. One requirement is that they donate an artwork inspired by their experience. Artists are also asked to host a workshop or other event for the community.
Artists who participated in 2016 include: Joan Pardes, Patti Hutchens Jouppi, Bruce Sink, Christine Fortner, Glenda Field, Roy Roys, Naona “Peaches” Wallin, Bob and Sandy Winfree, and Keren Lowell. Works from 2015 and 2016 will be featured at the museum Feb. 3 - 25.
