Paintings by Crystal Cudworth February 1st through 23rd
February’s solo artist exhibit will feature new work by Crystal Cudworth whose multimedia paintings speak to the grandeur of Juneau’s landscape. Cudworth’s collection consists of oil paintings collaged with pieces of manipulated historical photographs of the mining and milling industry. This series of works will re-tell Cudworth’s joy of being present in the rugged beauty of Juneau’s outdoor community and will immerse the viewer into the changing landscape.
Cudworth’s show will open with a First Friday reception on February 1st and will run through February 23rd 2019.
Poems, Stories and Artifacts February 1st through March 30th
Poems, Stories and Artifacts will feature items from the City Museum’s permanent collection displayed alongside written word pieces by University of Alaska Southeast Creative Writing students. Professor Emily Wall’s Creative Writing class included an ekphrastic writing assignment. Most commonly, ekphrastic writing is a vivid description of a work of art in which the act of reflecting on the artwork, amplifies and expands its meaning. For this assignment, each student chose one object, artwork, or artifact from the City Museum’s collection to contemplate. Using this object as a point of inspiration, students created a poem, memoir or flash fiction piece. Student work will be on display next to the object of inspiration. This exhibit will open with a First Friday Reception on February 1st, 2019.
