Seward gallery plans special July exhibit
During the month of July, the Resurrection Bay Galerie in Seward will present the exhibition "Over the Brooks Range and Down the North Slope."
Twenty Alaska and nationally known artists have sent paintings and sculptures depicting the mountainous Brooks Range and the North Slope. Not only scenery will be exhibited but the flora, fauna and people of the region will be portrayed.
Artists showing their work will be Deland Anderson, James Behlke, William Brody, Robert Grogan, Robert Kercher, Marvin Mangus, David Mollett, Hugh McPeck, Tom Missel, Sandy Stolle, Chris Wakefield, Diane Widom and Jon and Daniel Van Zyle. The inspiration for this show was paintings by Marvin Mangus, who was in on the beginning of exploration of the North Slope and his many paintings of those early days of exploration and discovery.
