Curio Opening Reception

Friday, September 5th

5-7pm @ The Main Street Gallery

Awesomely Kitsch Souvenirs & Utterly Tacky Trinkets! Throughout Alaska’s history, creative
entrepreneurs have graced souvenir stores with moose poop swizzle sticks, big-belly billikins,
barking huskies, kissing Eskimos, and other intriguing “treasures” and mementos. Be inspired by
the past, present, or think into the future to invent and create your own artistic idea of a tacky,
humorous, or cool souvenir: postcard, map, trinket, etc.—that perfect souvenir you think a tourist
should take home to remember their trip to the Last Frontier. All mediums welcome; no size
limitations. Your trinket should come ready to display, with instructions if needed.

Exhibit runs September 5-26, 2014.

Dia de los Muertos Opening Reception

Friday, November 7th

5-7pm @ The Main Street Gallery

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a holiday originating in Mexico and celebrated annually on
November 1. Because of the belief that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness, Dia
de los Muertos celebrates the lives of the deceased with festivals and lively celebrations—food,
drink, parties and activities the dead enjoyed in life. Dia de los Muertos recognizes death as a
natural part of the human experience, and on this holiday the dead are also a part of the
community, ceremonially awakened from their eternal sleep to share in the celebration with their
loved ones. The Main Street Gallery’s Dia de los Muertos exhibit is an Open Call show for
artists working in all mediums. We invite YOU to be a part of the exhibit by playing with traditional
themes, inventing your own tributes to mortality, or celebrating your loved ones, through artistic
expression.

Exhibit runs November 7-21, 2014.

Start: November 7, 2014
End: November 7, 2014
Venue: Main Street Gallery
