Homer artist, Mandy Bernard is January 2017 Artist in Residence at Bunnell Street Arts Center. Mandy’s textile work illustrates elements of Alaska’s wild landscape that are repeated through pattern and silkscreen, reflecting a desire for permanence and continuity in the natural world. For the month of January, Mandy will create a large-scale pattern installation comprised of organic elements personally and communally collected from the field. This translation of two-dimensional design to a tactile installation will explore the intersection of the natural environment and a strong personal connection to place.
