Crowds flock to First Friday

On the beaten track of the First Friday art walk, Resurrect Art Coffee House and Art Gallery bustled with visitors and well-wishers on what well could be the last public exhibition of artwork by local artist Kerry Cline. The proprietress of Softly Silk, which she has converted from a retail showroom and workshop to a full-time private studio, Cline was on hand to display her painted works on a wide variety of medium including canvas and silk.

First Friday at the library featured a wide range of paintings and art treasures unearthed from almost untouched archives of the Seward Library Association including a elaborately decorated door that formerly adorned the entrance of a Moose Pass cabin. Paintings of Seward Community Library benefactors Viola and Elwyn Swetmann, longtime benefactors of the library were also on display in the foyer of the new Seward Community Library Museum building.

Colorful, innovative and thought provoking art was on deck as skateboard designs, many by Seward residents and artists, were featured at Eight Arms Printing Company. Toni Henderson, owner of the newly opened local business, says the boards will on display throughout the month of June.

Also on the walk, KC Crowley held court in the foyer of the Alaska SeaLife Center on Ocean's Day weekend eve to explain the foundations of his artwork drawn from plankton and very small larval fish and invertebrates that make up the bulk of the oceans biomass.
