I know you deeply value the arts--that's why you are reading this.  You believe in the cultural strength of expression and creativity.

We Alaskans are empowered to make remarkable contributions from our PFD's using the online giving method Pick.Click.Give.  Last year 24 individuals used Pick.Click.Give to donate a total of $1300 to Bunnell.  Our goal this year: $2600.  Help us meet this challenge!
  Click on the link at the lower right to apply for your PFD on Jan.1st.  And imagine...if every Bunnell member participated at the minimum contribution amount, we would reach our Operating Reserve goal in 2012!

Thank you for creatively supporting Bunnell Street Arts Center in 2011. We look forward to another great, artistically adventurous season. 

Happy New Year!

Artistic/Executive Director

Sandy Gillespie Artist-in-Residence  

January, 2012      

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.

Jerry Falek
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.  

Bunnell Street Arts Center is a non-profit organization supported in part by grants from the City of Homer Grants Program through the Homer Foundation, the Ramuson Foundation, the Alaska State Council on the Arts, and the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
