Every year dozens of Alaskan artists create unique art plates as premiums for $100 + membership donations to Bunnell Street Arts Center. The cornerstone of Bunnell’s membership, the Plate Project has been generously sponsored for 20 years by potter, Ahna Iredale who kiln fires all the plates in her Homer studio. Bisqued plates are blank “canvases” for brilliant food-safe underglazes. Artists are welcome to stop by Bunnell and paint a plate. If you’d like to get involved for the first time, staff and volunteers will gladly offer you tips and techniques to create a successful plate. All plates will be displayed at Bunnell for the month of May.
