Lisa Wood has shown her rich wood-fired ceramics at Bunnell for fifteen years. This is Lisa's second exhibit at Bunnell.
After the Opening: Homer-grown singer Evy Olson & Joe Whitteberry (stand up bass, vocals, and guitar) in concert at 8 PM. Evy & Joe have been playing original & cover tunes together on the Kenai Peninsula since 2006. Their sound is very bright, buttery and lighthearted. As the Santa Barbara Independent states, "Folk songstress Evy Llyan's sound is a gentle and idyllic mixture of Jeff Buckley and Crosby, Stills & Nash, though altogether much more feminine..." Donations for the concert are appreciated.
