Bunnell Street Arts Center's mission is to nurture and support
innovative art of exceptional quality in all media.
“In the exhibition “Equinox, Alaska” I present my photographic interpretations of the light, mood and textures of Kachemak Bay. With my iPhone, I capture plants, water and sky during the Autumnal Equinox. The fall in Kachemak Bay invigorates and inspires me artistically like no other time of year. The imposing and ubiquitous pushki plants, so common in our summer landscape, dry in the fall to become legions of tattered soldiers marching across the fields. Rolling hills of fireweed transform magically from magenta to red to fluffy white. The bay turns a seductive green as the light shifts at the autumnal equinox. And the clouds scud and boil to a rhythm only felt at the time of year when the sun crosses the plane of the equator making day and night of equal length.”
October 22nd, 6 & 9PM
This year’s Wearable Arts runway show will be held at Land’s End Resort on Saturday, October 22. There will be two shows for the evening: 6pm and 9pm. Tickets will be available here at Bunnell and at The Fringe.
Each year we work hard to provide a relevant theme that inspires a wide range of makers yet is open for interpretation. “Waste Not, Want Not” is a theme that all Alaskans can identify with, given our geographical location and abundance of natural resources. It can be seen though through an ecological, political or economic lens. Alaska stands in a unique position within the context of our country and in the world and we hope this year’s theme spurs the maker in all of us.
