Group shows featured for First Friday
Multiple artist shows are featured for First Friday art openings. At Bunnell Street Arts Center, printmaker and woodcarver Sara Tabbert joins ceramic artist Carla Potter. At Ptarmigan Arts, more woodworkers show their art, with Ted Heuer, George Overpeck and Jerry Froeschle. At Fireweed Gallery an aunt and her niece, beader Kate Broylan and tattoo artist Annie Rivers, exhibit their work in “The Black Line.” The show’s title refers to the common motif of tattoo art, but also the theme of their show.
The contrast between distinct lines and blurred edges also gets explored in artist Astrid Friend’s show, “Emergence,” at the Homer Council on the Arts. Friend first started working in black-and-white photography, but now finds the opposite in “the indefinite, the blurs” of painting.
Also opening is Lisa Carlon’s “Homer by Land and Sea,” new work in 3-dimensional stained glass, and “Art and Science on the Katmai Coast,” work by David Rosenthal, who did an artist residency at Katmai National Park.
