Ree Nancarrow and Margo Klass exhibits for the month of May

Fiber artist Ree Nancarrow and sculptor Margo Klass exhibit together at Bunnell Street Arts Center for the month of May. The exhibit opens on Friday, May 3rd, 2024 from 5-7pm with artist talks at 6pm.

“This body of work draws inspiration from changes I have seen take place over many years living in Alaska.  Many of them are visible and accelerated due to global warming, which deeply concerns me. I have been actively involved with the In Time of Change program for the past 12 years, studying with scientists to understand their research and what it means for our natural world.  I strive to convey, in a very personal way, what I have come to know.” – Ree Nancarrow

”Wayfinding is a collection of hand-crafted books and box constructions which look both backward and forward in expressions of grief, hope, and gratitude. They all reflect a personal interaction with materials – the beauty of tanned salmon skin, a perfectly formed rock found on a beach walk, a unique flitch of boreal birch, or a quirky object found in a junk store – each takes me by the hand and leads its own transformation into an artist book or box construction.– Margo Klass

30th Annual Plate Project - Painting Project Opening May 10th 5 - 7pm

Plates are available for a $125 donation

Bunnell Street Arts Center kicks off our 30th Plate Project and annual membership drive on May 10th from 5-7pm with cake!  Choose your commemorative art plate when you donate $125+ to support the mission and programs of Bunnell. Donate $250 and select your plate early, on May 1st.

An artist-led community effort since 1994, the Plate Project provides essential support for the mission and programs of Bunnell Street Arts Center. This year’s plate project will be fired by Plate Project originator, Ahna Iredale. The Plate Project would not be possible without the time and talent of Homer potters who transform hundreds of pounds of clay into 100+ plates each year. This year we thank Lisa Wood, Maygen Lotscher, Marie Herdagen, Jeff Szarzi, David Kaufman, Ahna Iredale, Ruby Haigh, Carl Bice and Chris Story.

Donate at the $250 level and be ready to competitively select your plate early on May 1st. Plates will be available in-person and in the virtual gallery by 10 am: https://www.bunnellarts.org/plate-project/2024-plate-project-gallery/

Visionary donors at the $1,000 level may select their plates at any time.

Audience members of Ashley’s live performances experience catharsis through her infectious laughter and refreshing honesty. With a goal of promoting authenticity, connection, and cycle breaking, Ashley’s music reveals vulnerable and personal truths that many experience but are often afraid to discuss.
