On March 25, 2023 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.
All funds go to the Ptarmigan Arts Visual Arts Scholarship Fund, administered by the Homer Foundation. This is the only visual arts scholarship given to a Southern Kenai Peninsula High School student.
