Ian Grant: September Featured Artist

Ian GrantFor the month of September, we are featuring the art of Ian Grant. Ian is a Juneau abstract artist who will be showing his latest work from over the summer.

As someone who has a rather important and serious job by day, Ian enjoys the way that art allows his creative side to open up. He tells us, "I think we all have, or surely need our outlets in life, that time to step back and pay attention to the world around us, what's happening inside of, and I've found mine in working with an empty canvas and a messy table full of oils." In pursuing this creative endeavor, Ian finds inspiration from Juneau's surroundings and also from abstract masters such as Pollock and Picasso.

Ian GrantIan's paintings are large oil paintings on canvas - typically three to four feet wide or tall - the type that can anchor a room. We'll have at least a half-dozen of these on display, including "Blue Note" which is featured in the show flyer, as well as "Human Nature" and "White Note" both shown here. Viewed in person, the gorgeous paintings have nuances both of color and detail that are difficult to capture in a small picture.

Ian GrantIn addition to his oil paintings, Ian also does work with computerized art and silkscreen work. Over the summer, he has been working on a new line of prints and t-shirts based on his "boneyard" themed art. One example, "Halibut Head" is shown here, and we're pleased to share that Ian should have some prints ready for his show with us! It's always fun to see our artists explore new frontiers and we're excited to see how these are received at Ian's show!

The opening reception for Ian Grant takes place on First Friday, September 1, beginning at 4:30pm. His work will be on display throughout the month of September. For more information and examples of his work, visit www.anniekaills.com.

New Art from Jon Van Zyle and Nathalie Parenteau

We have a lot of new art in the gallery! Here are a couple highlights from two of our recent guest artists.

Jon Van ZyleFamed Alaskan artist Jon Van Zyle was our guest for an art show in August. He brought several new original paintings with him, and we now have a total of five of his originals in the gallery, including the heartwarming painting "Friends" shown here. For folks not quite ready to splurge on an original, we also have a full selection of Van Zyle's prints as well including the latest in his series of official Iditarod prints.

Nathalie ParenteauAlso, Northwest artist Nathalie Parenteau has two new limited edition prints released this summer. The first was "Glacial Icescape," an image with Nathalie's take on our own Mendenhall Glacier; and just this last month she added another new print "Alaska Express." This newest print is a fun image of a vintage steam engine crossing a mountain pass, inspired by the historic White Pass railroad that took prospectors to the gold fields from Skagway during Alaska's famous gold rush of 1898.

Check out the new work in the gallery today, and view full catalogs for both artists at www.anniekaills.com.

Recent Arrivals in the Gallery
We have plenty of new offerings and restocks in addition to our new art. Colleen and Riley recently attended a buying show to pick out new merchandise for the fall season. And with the weather we've been having lately they were in full nesting mode! So watch for lots of great finds for you and your home to start showing up over the next month! Here are a few examples of recent arrivals:

Fired Up We have a selection of hand-painted pottery from Fired Up Pottery. These are summer and fall patterns, primarily serving pieces, coming to us from a studio in Madras, Oregon.

Tom's Pots

Also in the pottery realm, we received a huge new order of mugs from Tom's Pots. These are handmade right here in Juneau and we have an assortment of designs & colors to choose from!

Jim Abel Wood work from Jim Abel has been a big hit all summer long, and he keeps upping his game with new designs! Recently, he brought us a selection of new hand crafted bird houses that use Alaskan beer cans for the living space. Beautiful as a display piece or a real bird house - and made in Juneau!


Our glassware section is fully stocked with work from all over. Check out these summer-colored glasses from Caravan Home Decor. These summer colored glasses are hand blown and lightly frosted, resembling sea glass. These will add personality and charm to your table!

Caravan We've been following the current trend for the home that features marble, wood, and glass. With that in mind we have a selection of fancy marble and glass serving pieces - including these natural white marble pieces also from Caravan Home Decor.
Petersburg metal guyFinally, we always love something unique, and these recycled steel sculptures from Petersburg, Alaska fit the bill. Old road signs are crafted into large spinning ornaments for your outdoor trees! We also have steel salmon sculptures for inside the home.
