Hit the JACC Putt opened on December 26th! In collaboration with artist Sarah Conarro and REACH artists and staff we created hole #5, “You Are Here.” The detail and work that the REACH artists put into every arrow and pointer is fantastic. The “hole” is Juneau and the ball comes out at “The Canvas.” Some of my favorites details are the freehand images on the Alaska platform including a kayaker, black and polar bears, and stars.
Hit the JACC Putt will run from noon to 5 through Thursday, January 8th. You can also check it out on First Friday!
Leading up to my art opening last Friday, I was thankful for the press coverage and support of the arts in general here in Juneau. You can follow the links below for more details and to listen to my first radio interview. Jeff Brown, the radio host of A Juneau Afternoon was easy to talk to and I felt relaxed talking on air. I don’t think I used the notes on my cheat sheet.
Note to self, don’t spend so much energy on what you may or may not say in life.
The opening itself was successful. It meant a lot to me to share my recent work… post Austin work. I felt very well received by the residents of Juneau and met a lot of interesting artists. I give all Juneau artists props for existing. It really is a lot harder to get materials and to stay dry enough to work.

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to show recent works this September at the Juneau Art and Culture Center. I was selected by the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council for a solo exhibition. It’s exciting to think that all of my works will be made in Juneau too. This of course means pulling from the nature Alaska has to offer. Everything is in bloom here (except for berries, I’m told they are ready to pick in late July or August). It seems fitting to push myself to produce a full show.
The “First Friday” opening is September 5th, 2008. The exhibit is available to see throughout September.
