First Friday is coming up again soon- May 4th! This month we're featuring Kirk Scott as our guest artist, also the Rodgers Park Elementary school with their handmade masks. Please come "up" to say hello and to view these creative works by both Kirk and the children of Rogers Park Elem.

  "Kirk Scott has had an interest in creating art since college, when he took a variety of studio courses.  In the years since, he has continued to take courses when time and opportunity permitted.  His current area of interest is printmaking, and his work includes portraits, figures, animals, and birds.  The media represented include etching, relief printing, and lithography.  This show is the first time a range of Kirk's artwork has been presented in a public venue in Anchorage."

April First Friday

_Greetings from the Upstairs Studio

MEZ Alaskan Pottery
will be presenting all new work at the Upstairs Studio for April's First Friday. Rejuvenate your routine with a colorful handmade mug or unique butter dish. Marta has been producing her new work using a slip inlay technique to create colorful floral motifs on a crisp white background of large lidded containers. She has also produced flatware using the same colorful slips but etching away to reveal the silhouette of Alaska’s most celebrated bird, the raven. At Upstairs Studio there are also plenty of opportunities to see what other Anchorage area artists have to offer. Upstairs Studio is comprised of shared studio spaces with an adjacent Gallery/Classroom. There the artists work together to provide an affordable studio and show space in a creative and collaborative environment. MEZ Alaskan Pottery's work will be on display throughout the month, but come early on First Friday for the best selection.

We are also featuring one of the Upstairs Studio's own, Dallas Wildeve and her elaborate maps and fine works. Dallas hand sews and embellishes these breathtaking pieces- maps of actual physical places, and also of the Heart, made using Tyvek. Dallas hand frames her pieces, and finishes them by hand sanding and painting these frames to fit the piece. Such amazing and detailed work, Dallas.
