Annie Kaill's is happy to welcome back jewelry artist Johnny Ellis. Johnny makes his jewelry out of fossilized ivory, collected right here in Alaska. The fossilized ivory from Saint Lawrence Island is a great way to own ivory without harming animals. And, Johnny makes it into the most beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more. He will have a huge selection of jewelry he's been working on over the winter, at the First Friday event!

Evon Zerbetz - April Second Friday - April 11, 2014
We are excited to welcome back Ketchikan artist Evon Zerbetz for an art opening in April. This is a "Second Friday" event, timed to coincide with the Alaska Folk Festival.
Evon is a well-known artist and illustrator in the region. Evon is known for her illustrated children's books such as "Lucky Hares and Itchy Bears" as well as her linocut prints. For her prints, she carves a linoleum block and then uses it to print a negative image in black and white, usually featuring ravens or other wildlife. Each print is then colored individually by hand. This personal touch on each print means that each print is an original. It also means that she typically produces smaller, more exclusive editions than most other artists.
Recently, Evon has completed several "1% for art" commissions in schools and community buildings throughout the state, and she is also one of the three artists selected to install art in the new State Library, Archives, and Museum complex under construction in Juneau. She has also be active in a school art program here in Juneau.
The event will take place on Friday, April 11, beginning at 4:30 pm.
