Our April exhibition, Debris, brings together three artists who gain inspiration from items that most of us discard. Their inventive reuse and re-purposing of unique materials draw on themes as varied as ocean degradation, material transformation and the cycles of growth, decay, and renewal.

Mano de Orula
Xavier Cavazos
Inspired by the street art of Cuba, Xavier explores themes of the sacred along with everyday life.

Ink for Alaska
A traveling exhibit of prints capturing the soul and art of Alaska

Portland Oregon artists, Barbara Mason and Alex Prentiss, supporters of The Alaska Wilderness League, used their talents to help raise awareness and money for the League. Believing in the effort to preserve Alaska’s wild lands and waters, they creatively developed a project using their life experiences in printmaking and invited others to participate in a juried printmaking exhibit showcasing the Art of the Print, with work inspired by Alaska and/or our northern wilderness. Any printmaking process was permissible.

Works were submitted to an online website for jury, and a distinguished panel of artists chose the winners and 12 works were then framed for travel throughout the United States. You can see all the entries at www.inkforalaska.com. Every image was a winner as you can see for yourself.

Alaska Wilderness League’s mission is to preserve Alaska’s wild lands and waters by engaging citizens and decision makers with a courageous and constant voice for Alaska.  The League has members in all 50 states working together to keep Alaska’s wild places protected for future generations.

Alaska Wilderness League works at the federal level on a variety of issues affecting Alaska’s wild lands and waters.  Currently the League’s work includes fighting to obtain the strongest protections possible for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s Coastal Plain; promoting a sustainable future for the Tongass National Forest, and checking the unbalanced and potentially destructive development of Alaska’s Arctic waters and special places within our Arctic public lands.
