Please join us Friday, August 4 from 5 - 7 pm for First Friday, featuring artists Rod Weagant and Marianne Wieland.
Rod Weagant, who is known as a "painter's painter" has spent the last four decades combining plein air and studio painting to explore his passion for wild landscapes. His work reflects both his formal training as a painter, and his raw, emotional response to his environment.
Marianne Wieland is an Alaska painter who is also known for her plein air landscapes. She enjoys the challenge of working outside, within the limitations of constantly changing light and weather. We are excited to feature new works in oil by both artists.
A percentage of this month's proceeds will go to our featured August non-profit, The Alaska Zoo. The Alaska Zoo has provided a home for orphaned, injured and captive-born animals for over four decades. It is dedicated to promoting conservation of Arctic, sub-Arctic and like climate species through education, research and community enrichment. Be sure to contribute to our donation jar, and stop by for First Friday, where rumor has it you may have an opportunity to say hello to a visiting zoo animal!
