First Friday at the City Museum features Alexandra Bookless

January 2, 2019 – FYI, News

Visit the City Museum for the opening reception of Substrate, by local artist, Alexandra Bookless, on Friday, January 4 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. This event is free and the artwork on exhibit will be for sale.

Alexandra Bookless is a Juneau resident originally from the Yukon. First taking on art through the tutelage of her architect mother, as well as her own self-teaching, she ended up completing a Bachelors of Arts in Art at the University of Alaska Southeast. During the course of her art education she developed a high regard for technical skill, execution, and thorough design.

“The intent behind these recent works is to break some of the irons of stilted composition and incorporate different materials that complement the lean design notions of which I am fond. This body of work hopes to shed a somewhat less common light on our surroundings here in Juneau, Alaska, and the picturesque North,” Bookless stated

Substrate will be on display through January 26.
