First Friday Alpine Art Exhibition
In conjunction with the annual meeting, The Alaskan Alpine Club is planning a First Friday Art Exhibition to highlight local artists and their work. The event theme is Alpine Art. The exhibit will feature paintings, digital works, and sculpture from five artists: David Mollet, Maryanne Babij, Jennifer Moss, Steve Dean, and Dubh.
The Alpine Club was established in the early 1970’s by a group of local mountaineers as a club for people interested casino games in outdoor activities such as spelunking, kayaking, and mountain climbing. The group went on to establish the nonprofit, Alaska Mountain Rescue Fund, to help pay for the public cost of mountain rescue operations and to promote a stronger sense of self-responsibility.
The First Friday Art Exhibition hours are from 4:20 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
