Decolonizing Alaska by various artists

As the world’s attention shifts to the shrinking polar ice cap and the future of our planet, Alaska’s place in the world has moved from the fringe to the center.

Decolonizing Alaska is a multi-media visual art exhibit that explores how 30 diverse contemporary Alaska artists grapple with these issues and present new possibilities for cultural sustainability.

New work by Ed Hutchinson

5-7 p.m., First Friday Reception

Homer artist Ed Hutchinson paints in three genres: white paint on white canvas of Arctic wild life, whimsical paintings which poke fun at some of the foibles of human existence such as a surfer surfing on a halibut, and colorful landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes. His new work showcases Arctic animals that have to contend with global warming. For the first time, he merges his white-on-white style with his colorist style.
