Homer artist holds residency in January

Homer artist Mandy Bernard is the January artist in residence at Bunnell Street Arts Center.

Bernard’s textile work illustrates elements of Alaska’s wild landscape that are repeated through pattern and silkscreen. For January, she will create a large-scale pattern installation comprised of organic elements personally and communally collected from the field. This installation will explore the intersection of the natural environment and a strong personal connection to place. For more information, visit www.bunnellarts.org.
