Homer Foundation has helped sustain creative vibrancy, art education and networking for adults in two more artists residencies this year at Bunnell Street Arts Center. 

In June, Bunnell was pleased to collaborate with Center for Alaska Coastal Studies to host California-based watercolor and book artist, Andie Thrams. She stayed at the CACS yurt at the Petersen Bay Field Station and worked on her long-term painting project, In Trees. At Bunnell, Thrams provided a lecture demonstration about her painting project, and a hands-on painting workshop. 

In October, Bunnell presented Seattle-based jeweler, Micki Lippe for a residency that included an exhibition and workshop. Lippe’s design workshop appealed to artists of diverse experiences and media, innovation and excitement. 

Support from the Homer Foundation’s Willow Fund insured the continuation of Bunnell’s AIR program by matching local in-kind support and underwriting  artists stipends.  Importantly, support from the Homer Foundation establishes a local commitment that is essential to leverage larger support for the continued growth of this program.
