Exhibited in the group exhibition
and the accompanying catalogue,
An excerpted statement from
the exhibition catalogue's Introduction,
|"Alaska imposes on all who
go there to seek fortune or refuge a taxing battery of tests that quickly
sorts out the tourist and dilettante from those with the strength to survive
and prosper. In no small measure, "our last frontier" confronts the working
artist with the same challenge."
"And yet most of those who have chosen a more personal path to interpretation draw from the same well of inspiration as their more traditional colleagues, namely, the spectacular and diverse land that surrounds them and the no less extraordinary and diverse people who live and work on it."
