Homer Flex hosts First Friday event

The past two weeks, the students and staff of Homer Flex have worked with local artist Melisse Reichman, through Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Artist in Schools program. We created ceramic sculptures of faces. These pieces, from the comic to the horrific and from the realistic to the fantastic, were constructed with Melisse’s insightful input and assistance. 

Over the course of the two-week residency, by slipping, scoring and sculpting, students transformed a simple slab of clay into pieces of art as unique as each individual artist.

Flex would also like to recognize the contributions of the Homer Incentive Fund, a donor-advised fund of the Homer Foundation, as well as the Artist in Schools program, funded by Alaska State Council on the Arts with support from Rasmuson Foundation and Alaska USA Credit Union. Without this financial support, such artistic opportunities would not be available to our students. We sincerely appreciate their assistance and the continued support. 

Melisse and Homer Flex invite the community to view these pieces this Friday, May 6, from 4-6 p.m., during our annual Flex First Friday celebration. Food and refreshments will be available.
