First Friday: Mary Matthews & Jeanne Cannon
We have the honor of hosting two local artists this month: Mary Matthews & Jeanne Cannon.
Using the most unconventional of natural fibers, artist Mary Matthews has created a dress made entirely of bird and wasp nests, mud and birch bark. Her larger-than-life masterpiece is meant to be seen up close. The all-natural gown will be on display throughout the summer.

Jeanne Cannon will be showing paintings from Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve, Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, and Denali National Park & Preserve. Her art describes the mountains and rock faces of the Alaskan wilderness. Jeanne's artwork will be on display for one night only.

Two rafters stand in shallow water at the edge of the Charley River headwaters. One red and one blue raft are loaded with paddles and gear. Vegetation is brown and the ground mucky. Did You Know?
The Charley River is the only completely protected watershed in National Park lands at 1.1 million acres. Arising at 4,000 ft of elevation, the Charley River runs 105 miles before emptying into the Yukon River 700 ft above sea level, for an average gradient of over 31 ft/mi.
