November First Friday art openings at Juneau-Douglas City Museum

November 4, 2021 – FYI

Two exhibits are opening at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum on Friday, November 5:

Jessica Hahnlen | Mountains, Seas, and Spirits
Opening Reception:  November 5 | 4:30 to 7 p.m.

Jessica Hahnlen was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska. Upon returning to Juneau after an eight-year absence, Jessica was struck by the beauty of Southeast Alaska, and discovered a newfound awe and appreciation for her hometown. It is the wonder of the beauty of Southeast Alaska’s ecology that she hopes to communicate through her artwork. Mountain, Seas, and Spirits is a culmination of what Jessica has learned thus far as both a silkscreen and a watercolor artist. This collection of land, animals, and seas depict Southeast Alaska animals, water, notable mountains, and rock faces around Juneau. This exhibit will be on display from November 5 to December 31.

Voices of the Wilderness Artist-In-Residency Retrospective

The Voices of the Wilderness Artist-In-Residency program is sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Artists who participate in this program are paired with a wilderness specialist during the months of June-August, and are actively engaged in projects which foster both artistic exploration and stewardship of America’s public lands. For this exhibition, the City Museum partnered with the U.S. Forest Service to mount a show featuring artwork by former participants of the Voices of the Wilderness program who spent their residency in the Kootznoowoo Wilderness and the Tracy Arm Fjord’s Terror Wilderness in the Tongass National Forest. This exhibit will be on display at the City Museum from November 5 through February 26, 2022.

Please note: The opening reception for Voices of the Wilderness will take place for the December First Friday on December 3.
