The Pratt’s new special exhibit begins Friday, August 2, with an opening reception from 5-7 pm
This exhibit explores the beauty and mystery of archaeology through abstract paintings by Rebecca Crowell and artifacts excavated in the Kenai Peninsula. Compositions and sound design by New York City composer David Crowell accompanies the visual display of paintings paired with artifacts from the Pratt collection.
Since 2002 Rebecca Crowell has been working with cold wax medium and oil. She writes, “My painting process itself has certain connections with the theme of archaeology, with its layering of paint, cold wax medium and other additives such as powdered pigment and sand.” Her work is displayed in galleries around this country and abroad.
In conjunction with her show, Crowell will give an Oil and Wax Painting Workshop at Kachemak Bay Campus from August 9-11. The registration deadline is Monday, August 5. For more information call KBC at 235-7743.
We invite you to join us from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, August 2, for an opening reception in the Special Exhibits Gallery. Beneath the Surface runs through September 29, 2013.

For more information contact Scott Bartlett, Curator of Exhibitions, at (907) 435-3335.

The Pratt Museum preserves the stories of the Kachemak Bay region and provides a gathering place for people to learn and be inspired by this region and its place in the world.
