Bunnell Arts Center named one of “Alaska’s 10 Best Contemporary Art Galleries and Museums” by theCultureTrip.com. In their write-up they say:

This creative hub is a real gem in the midst of the stunning Kachemak bay and Kenai mountains. It is a non-profit multidisciplinary arts organisation, situated in the historic Inlet Trading Post building. It is truly embedded in the community, playing a pivotal role in the revitalising of the Old Town in Homer. Bunnell Street Arts Center promotes both visual and performing arts, coordinating lectures, plays, exhibitions, workshops and Artists in Schools. Yet at the core of the arts organisation is the Artist in Residence programme, held three to five times a year. It allows Alaskan and international artists to live on-site for up to a month, while laying on educational outreach activities for the community. Current beneficiary of Bunnell’s inclusive philosophy is Jarod Charzewski, an art teacher at College of Charleston, whose popular installation Buoys and Barrels has become a central feature of the exterior of the gallery. Moreover, there is currently a solo exhibition by Kodiak artist Antoinette Walker who explores the coastal marine theme via the encaustic medium: one of the oldest painting techniques that combines damar crystals, molten bees wax and pigment.
