A new exhibition from local artist Peter Williams is the first in a solo exhibition series at the Sheldon Jackson Museum. Williams was chosen from a pool of over a dozen artists, and his work includes garments, two-dimensional art, objects, film and contemporary media.
The Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum has sponsored the Alaska Native Artist Residency Program for over 30 years. Operating during the pandemic hasn't been easy, but they've adapted by going virtual to bring artist-in-residents to the community for talks and workshops. Tlingit artist Pamela Johnson began her residency on Oct. 1 and will spend the time working in the museum's gallery, teaching an eight-part regalia making class over Zoom and giving an artist talk.
