Though the hustle and bustle of summer has ended and Homer eases into fall, the art scene remains vibrant and alive. The local Homer Plein Air group comes inside after a summer of painting excursions to show their work at Ptarmigan Arts.
The cooler days also mean a time for fiber artists to sew, knit and craft.
For October, Bunnell Street Arts Center features Homer Fiber Arts Collective artist-in-residence Keren Lowell. Lowell will show and speakd about her work for First Friday, and conducts weekend workshops to help fiber and textile artists hone their skills, and perhaps even create works for November’s Wearable Arts show.
Like 1960s television, Artist Ed Hutchinson embraces color in his “shadow painting” technique, the application and sculpting of paint on canvas to give his work dimension.
Along with the Plein Air group’s show at Ptarmigan, other galleries feature shows by a variety of artists. Grace Ridge brewery donates its space for a South Peninsula Haven House art fundraiser. Fireweed Gallery features work by Kachemak Bay Watercolor Society artists for its fall Trunk Show and Sale. And at the Homer Council on the Artist, more than 20 artists are featured in in a celebration of ceramic arts.
