Art Show to Offer Local Twist Using Embroidery Kits

Kodiak boasts quite a few quilting and knitting shops, and for a town full of crafters, it’s fitting that fiber arts will feature in this upcoming First Friday art walk.

The Rookery will show a collaboration between fiber artist Chris Lynch and painter Natasha Pristas. They’ve put together embroidery kits based on Pristas’ designs.

Erin Starr Hollow from the Kodiak Arts Council says Pristas is a prolific artist and she often sees her work around town, although not  in fiber-art form.

“I don’t believe that’s typically her medium. I know it’s Chris’s, so it’s really neat to see these two women come together and collaborate on something that also gets to allow members of the public to try out their hand with fiber arts.”

Among the attractions at this month’s art walk will be handmade baskets at the Baranov Museum and metalwork at Harborside FlyBy. The event begins at 5 p.m.
