Sara Tabbert woodcuts and Lisa Wood Pottery on exhibit August 5, Evy Ohlson concert follows opening at 8 PM.
Tabbert Driftwood

Fairbanks woodcut artist, Sara Tabbert exhibits with Homer potter, Lisa Wood this month.  Tabbert has shown her carved relief panels and woodcuts recently in Fairbanks, Seattle, and Anchorage.  Her work can be found in collections at the Anchorage Museum, UAF's Museum of the North, the Rasmuson Foundation, the Alaska State Museum in Juneau, and Swedish Hospital in Seattle.  Her studio and home are in the lowlands of Goldstream Valley just north of Fairbanks.  Tabbert also works actively in the Artist in the Schools program, and will be doing projects with students across the state in the 2011-2012 school year. 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.
