Tonight, community members will have an opportunity to see the work of various local artists at a variety of venues during the Kodiak Arts Council’s First Friday Art Walk. It’s the third first Friday the council has put together, but only the second this year. Kate Helligso is the events coordinator for the arts council and said the hope is to make the walks a regular event.

The Art Walk starts at 5 p.m., and you can get more information at the Kodiak Arts Council website.

Venues:

Harborside Fly-By, featuring work by Liz Mitchell and Deb Christiansen;

Northern Exposure Gallery, featuring Bruce Nelson and Dickie Saltonstall;

Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium, Artist Trading Card Show "How Bazaar;"

Kodiak Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, featuring art from recycled and repurposed material;

Baranov Museum, make Filipino Christmas lanters and view the Filipino Community Stories exhibit;

Kodiak Island Brewery artist of the month, Carol Scott; and

She said this month’s first Friday will feature a handful of locations with dozens of local artists showcasing their work.

— (Art Walk 2 :58 “The Harborside is putting on… show and it’s right in the auditorium foyer.”)

Helligso said you don’t necessarily have to walk to all the locations, or visit them.

— (Art Walk 3 :37 “You definitely don’t have to go to all of them…beautiful, I saw a photo of them.”)

Other downtown locations include Dead Humpy Gallery and the Kodiak Island Brewing Company.

— (Art Walk 4 :39 “Alf Pryor and…for art. And this month the artist is going to be Carol Scott.”)

Helligso said if this art walk is a success then the next one will most likely be in January. She said anyone who is ever interested in getting involved with the art walks or anything the arts council puts together can always contact her.
The art walk kicks off at 5 p.m. tomorrow night (tonight) and will go until 7 p.m.
