One of a Kind

IMG_4945On Friday, August 6th, the Baranof Hotel, a classic art-deco style hotel built in Juneau in the 1930's, celebrates the opening of The Franklin Street Gallery at the Baranof, Juneau's newest fine arts gallery.  

Featured artists at Friday's opening include Barbara Craver, Cristine Crooks, Colleen Goldrich, Pua Maunu, Jane Stokes and me!  We'll be in good company at the Baranof; the hotel owns and displays a collection of paintings by many well known Alaskan artists, including Sydney Laurence and Eustace Ziegler.  

The distinguishing feature of this new gallery is that it will show only original work.  These days, with so many prints being made in such large editions, this is an unusually strong statement of appreciation for the exclusive quality of art that is not produced for the masses; original art is created one piece at a time.  A painting or piece of jewelry or pottery that is the only one of its kind has an added value; it is imbued with the mystery of creation.

I hope that you can come to the Franklin's First Ever First Friday.  The reception will be from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Franklin Street Gallery at the Baranof Hotel in Juneau, Alaska.
