MIKE SIRL BIG PLAY

June 3rd – June 30th

artist talk June 3  6pm

Mike Sirl returns to Homer for a retrospective exhibition of figurative drawings and steel sculptures. Sirl lived on Diamond Ridge from 1974 to 2000, and produced an impressive body of large-scale paintings and steel sculptures. Sirl’s exhibit features several large graphite drawings on canvas featuring a “bird-eye-view” of life in Homer and a couple dozen playful steel sculptures exploring outdoor sports and nightlife in Alaska forged with astounding accuracy and figurative eloquence.

Ceramic sculptor Annette Bellamy lives in Halibut Cove and explores her lifestyle of fishing and living by the waters of Kachemak Bay in richly textured vessel forms.

Peonies on Pioneer

This collaboration of civic, private and non-profit partners is a task force of Homer Chamber of Commerce. We aim to enliven Pioneer Avenue as an economic district, attracting visitors and residents to linger and explore Homer’s historic core.  Partners are sponsoring murals and gardens with a peony theme to celebrate and leverage Homer’s assets in the arts, agriculture and recreation. With support from Homer Foundation,  Bunnell Street Arts Center sponsors artist in residence, muralist Kady Perry from New Orleans in June. Additional support comes from the sale of “Peonies on Pioneer” Tshirts. Kady Perry is facilitating mural workshops and leading a team of many volunteers to create these murals around Homer. All designs are painted by Alaskan artists with Kady’s direction and facilitation, and approved and sponsored by private businesses.

We aim to someday have a summer Peony Festival in Homer centered on Pioneer Avenue, giving Homer a boost similarly to the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival and the Halibut Derby.
