November’s First Friday openings feature a mix of the old and new. That describes not only the collection of artists, but also the title of watercolor artist Michael Murray’s exhibit at Fireweed Gallery, “Old and New.” A veteran artist who has been creating since childhood, Murray is a founding member of the Kachemak Bay Watercolor Society and a longtime exhibitor at local galleries. Another longtime artist born before statehood, Karol Kahn Miller, shows her original pencil drawings at Ptarmigan Arts.
Youth Artist of the Year Felicity Rae Jones has her first solo exhibit, “Windows,” at the Homer Council on the Arts. Of her, HCOA says she “reveals a sense of insight and authenticity rare for such a young artist.”
Closing out his artist residency at Bunnell Street Arts Center is Claudio Orso-Giacone, The Oberlin, Ohio, print and mask maker shows work he created during his stay at Bunnell. Also showing this Friday is Kenai photographer Joe Kashi, showing at the Kachemak Bay Campus.
