Studio art show opens
JUNEAU - The work of painters Rick Clair, Alan Munro, Carol Bodenhamer, Sharron Lobaugh and Alice Tersteeg, and goldsmith Michael Hunter, is featured this weekend at a studio art show.
The show is at Gallery Art and Framing, Lobaugh's studio at 3340 Fritz Cove Rd.
"There's a lot of variety, realistic and abstract work," said Tony Pope, who does framing work at the studio.
Tersteeg and Bodenhamer have oil pastels and watercolors on display.
"Carol Bodenhamer is not as well known as the others," said Lobaugh. "She usually does wall installations in acrylic, very large pieces. These are smaller."
Lobaugh is showing watercolors she painted this summer during a five-week stay in Italy. Munro recently exhibited a series of oil paintings in New York City and this show will also feature his abstract paintings.
"Alan's are all abstract, light and airy and full of spontaneous cheer," Lobaugh said.
"The Open Studio" show hours are 1 to 5 p.m. through Sunday, and next week by appointment. Call 789-7604 to make an appointment.
Fairbanks Fine Arts Camp on two-year hiatus
JUNEAU - The Fairbanks Summer Fine Arts Camp, an annual month-long program serving high-school-age students throughout the state, has been suspended for two years.
Juneau and Southeast students regularly participate in the camp, which has offered fine arts or music opportunities since 1964. Hosted by the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the program has offered a wide range of music, theater and art classes.
John Leipzig, UAF dean of liberal arts, said last year the camp ran a deficit of $318,000. The university's fine arts complex, where the camp is held, is undergoing a long-term renovation, and the combined factors convinced the school to put the camp on a two-year hiatus.
Leipzig said a committee is evaluating the program and studying how the camp can be self-supporting and independent of the school.
Arts fellowships available
JUNEAU - The Alaska State Council on the Arts is now accepting applications for the Connie Boochever Arts Fellowship in the fields of performing, literary and media arts. Up to four fellowships for $2,500 each will be granted for 2002. Deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2002.
The Connie Boochever Arts Fellowship is a program of the Connie Boochever Endowment for the Arts, a fund started by the Boochever family and administered by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. Connie Boochever was a Juneau performer, director and producer of community theater and a lifelong patron and advocate of the arts. She died in 1999.
