May kicks off Homer’s summer arts season with a wide variety of shows, including a pop-up by Flex School students to celebrate the end of the school year and their creative efforts.
Homer artists dominate this month’s shows, with exhibits by local artists Carla Cope, Erik Larson, Ranja Dean, Jay Wright, Jen Norton, Lorri L. Davis and Laura Faeo. From Cope’s bold paintings to Norton’s playful sketches inspired by the musical, Spamalot, it’s a standout display of Homer talent.
The 23rd annual Kachemak Bay Watercolor Society’s show at the Fireweed Gallery returns. Member artists show their individual work, but they also continue the tradition of a collaborative painting, where each artist paints a section of a large painting.
As a preview of the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival, festival artists again show their 6×6 work at K-Bay Caffé. Also showing is festival featured artist Valisa Higman.
While there won’t be a First Friday exhibit, last month’s Homer Council on the Arts retrospective show of Shirley Timmreck’s art moves to the South Peninsula Hospital gallery.
