Sandy Gillespie Artist-in-Residence
With support from the Homer Foundation, Bunnell is pleased to continue the Artist in Residence program with three residencies in 2012. In January, Alaskan artist Sandy Gillespie works in Bunnell's main gallery space and will provide workshops for youth and adults. Utilizing papers, found objects, text, paint and encaustic, Gillespie creates multivalent spaces evoking bodies, texts and internal landscapes.
In March, once again supported by USA Artists, graphic novelist Jim Woodring returns to transform Bunnell into an open artist's studio. The author of the Frank comics, Jim Woodring will offer workshops once again, as he did in 2010.
Bunnell is in the planning stages of a summer residency program in collaboration with Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies. This residency program takes advantage of four locations around Homer including Coastal Studies's yurt by the Petersen Bay Field Station as well as the cabin at the Carl Wynn Nature Center.

Several new artists joined our roster last year with a Teaching Artists Academy last september, sponsored by HCOA, Bunnell, ASCA and KPBSD. The goal: raise the quality of Artist in Schools with a greater number of skilled teaching artists, teach to Alaska's Content Standards in the Arts and cultivate effective teaching methods. The academy also strengthened opportunites for collaboration among Artist in Schools providers. Jerry Falek is a nationally-recognized artist teacher who will follow up a residency at McNeil Canyon School with a residency at Voznesenka. Delightful storyteller, educator, and performing artist Jerry Falek will be offering his newest interactive story program. Children will use movement, sound, and their imaginations to understand the story on different levels.
