Alaska artists

Ready ….. Set …. Art! for April 13

On April 13, 2024 Grace Ridge Brewery in Homer will host a very exciting event! We have gathered together at least 15 noted Alaska artists. Each artist will complete a piece in their chosen medium in one hour! The public is invited to watch, encourage, maybe even heckle a bit and to bid on those pieces as they are created. After the one hour period is over the artists will lay down their tools and be done. Then the highest silent bid on each piece will be the starting bid on the following live auction. The winning bidder of this auction gets to take home the art piece that they are the high bid on.

When? April 13, 2024, come at 5:00 pm, enjoy a fresh brew and sign up for the auction.

Where? Grace Ridge Brewery, 870 Smoky Bay Way in Homer. 907-435-0601.
