Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s solo artist for February
The Juneau-Douglas City Museum will host an opening reception for an art exhibition by Kirsten Shelton titled, Quilled: Close Encounters in the Temperate Rainforest for First Friday on February 4, from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
Then, on Saturday, February 5, the City Museum will host an artist talk and mini-workshop with Kirsten Shelton from 10:30 a.m. to noon. During the artist talk participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at pen-and-ink drawing. Masks are required to attend both events at the City Museum.
Quilled: Close Encounters in the Temperate Rainforest will be on display at the City Museum from February 4-26. Artists Kirsten Shelton illustrates the natural world through a detailed lens, finding interest in the textures, and seemingly infinite subtleties, that surround us. In her exhibit, Quilled: Close Encounters in the Temperate Rainforest, Kirsten’s work draws attention to temperate rainforest life. Through pen and ink, Kirsten details the flora under our feet, the matrix of moss and tree limbs above our heads, animal characters who see us (and we sometimes glimpse as well), and other subtleties in our local landscape.
