Andie Thrams Artist in Residence
in collaboration with Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies 


Thrams imageCalifornia-based painter and book artist, Andie Thrams is Artist in Residence at the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies' Petersen Bay Field Station with support from Bunnell Street Arts Center and The Willow Fund, a donor-advised fund of the Homer Foundation.

"During this residency I will work on new pages for my ongoing series of artist's books, In Forests (as pictured here) and Field Studies. My process will involve finding and repeatedly visiting particular places and trees, getting to know their forms and energies more intimately than is possible with occasional visits. I will work outdoors (beneath a tarp when necessary) on folded sheets of paper, which will later be bound into my books. I will use watercolor, ink and gouache to document observations of both the seen and unseen with drawing, painting and writing. This unique opportunity will allow a deepening meditation and connection with one particular forest, ultimately guiding the direction of my work."

Thrams' Artist Talk Thursday, June 7, 7:30 PM at Bunnell will feature images of her work. All are welcome to this free event. Meet the artist and learn more about her workshops:

Creative Forest Fun for ages 9-12 with an adult, June 16
Come and join in for some creative fun at Bunnell Street Arts Center. We will work with ink, watercolor, twigs, sticks, as well as pen, brush and crayon, to explore lighthearted, easy and quite beautiful ways to create spontaneous drawings and paintings to take home.  10:00 AM -  to 2:00 PM, with a lunch break.
Bring a smock, or wear funky clothing. All materials provided.
$40 fee per youth-adult pair.

Watercolors in the Wild Forest at Peterson Bay, June 23
for artists ages 13 and up, bring your own materials.
Painting in wild places is powerfully transforming, yet sometimes overwhelming. During gentle forays into the forest, we'll collect ideas and work with watercolor and ink. Projects and demos will include field-friendly ways to mix color; reveal gesture and forest light; and work in layers to conjure up the complexity of wild habitats. You'll leave with effective methods for happily creating images in the field and strategies to enable completion in the studio later on. 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, with an hour for lunch.
$130 general/$120 Bunnell and/or CACS Members includes RT water taxi
