Portrait of the Flats - October First Friday - October 3, 2014
One of Juneau's most iconic neighborhoods is the area just north of downtown known as "the flats." A historic neighborhood with many houses dating to the early 1900's, the flats is an area of relatively flat land that spans roughly from Evergreen Cemetery to the Federal Building, and from Glacier Avenue to Chicken Ridge. Over the years, a vibrant and diverse group of artists have made the flats their home.
Some of the many artists from the flats include Barbara Craver, Colleen Goldrich, Arnie Weimer, Rob Roys, Puanani Maunu, Constance Baltuck, Fred Weiler, and more. For the Portrait of the Flats event, we will be inviting all neighborhood artists to create and show a piece of art representing the neighborhood. It's going to be quite the show!
The event will take place on Friday, October 3, beginning at 4:30 pm.
Barbara Lavallee, Alice Tersteeg, Meg Jones - November First Friday - November 7, 2014
