Summer Art Exhibit Extended
Valdez, Alaska, July 13, 2022: Visitors to the Valdez Museum on Egan Drive can enjoy our popular summer art offering into the fall! SACRED WATERS: Art by Kevin Crowley, will remain on display in the Egan Commons through October 9, 2022. Previously, in 2020 Crowley presented an online exhibit, RAPTORA BOREALIS, Alaska’s Birds of Prey. But this is his first in-person solo exhibit at the Museum, and it features an all-new body of work consisting of wood cut prints, prints on fabric, and printed prayer flags that explore the marine wildlife in Prince William Sound. Crowley offers these insights on his artwork:
Ever since my sons were big enough to hold a net, they have participated with our family in subsistence and sport fish harvesting. As we learned more about the relationship between salmon migrations and the forest health, we began our own series of ‘wild prayer’ flags to symbolize and express our role in this symbiotic relationship between the mountains and the sea. The deep waters of the ocean evoke a deeper sense of mystery, and in this subject my art tends towards traditional representational art. Giant forms of halibut and lingcod have lent themselves to larger woodcut pieces.
Our many summer visitors have admired Crowley’s exhibit, and many are bringing his artwork home to enjoy. All his exhibit works–prints on paper, fabric and prayer flags, as well as hand made accordion books are for sale. Plus, a variety of his prints are featured in the Museum Store. Be sure to stop by the Valdez Museum on Egan Drive in downtown Valdez for a chance to view this extraordinary and eclectic collection of works by Anchorage, Alaska based artist Kevin Crowley.
