april pALMER ART WALK:
Join us as we chase the snow away with another fun installment of the Palmer Art Walk! For the month of April, the Palmer Art Walk will be celebrating Easter with a special Easter egg hunt throughout our downtown Art Walk stops! Each Art Walk stop will have a collection of Easter eggs hidden at their locations. Each egg is filled with an array of prizes and goodies. One lucky winner will even win the ultimate prize....a little something we picked up at this year's Alaska Chicks Vintage Market! Walkers will be given a map of egg locations when they check in at the Museum and there will only be a limited number of eggs available to find so be sure to come early. Bring a friend along with you this month to help you search and you can even split the prizes!
The April Art Walk will be held on:
Saturday, APRIL 8TH from 2:00 - 6:00PM.
Events along this month's Palmer Art Walk include:
ARTISTS UNCORKED: This unique local venue specializes in hosting special Paint Nights. It really is the new 'CRAZE'. A fun and relaxing way to spend an evening out. For April's Art Walk, Artists Uncorked will be offering visitors an opportunity to create their own art through an egg painting class. For $10.00, visitors will be given a wooden goose egg and a selection of paints to use so that they may create their own holiday-inspired art work.
PALMER DOWNTOWN DELI: TBD
FIRESIDE BOOKS: Our favorite local vendor of the written word has a special treat for its visitors. This month, Fireside will be hosting a book signing with Lael Morgan, a long-established Alaska journalist who is best known for writing about good time girls and travels in the Far North. Lael will be available to discuss her new book, "Kitchen Stories Cookbook: Comfort Cookin' Made Fascinating and Easy," who she co-wrote with Linda Altoonian. Unlike any cookbook you've read before, "Kitchen Stories Cookbook" features recipes that are easy to make, economical, and elegant to serve. Featuring comfort foods from various nationalities and regions throughout our great country, even the most experienced cook will appreciate the fine, full flavor of these well-loved dishes.
The authors, by profession, are longtime storytellers and writers who have cooked and eaten their way throughout the world. They introduce each recipe with a captivating food story or historical facts that entertain, enlighten, and spark memories for all who read this book.
Join Lael in honoring our rich history and in exploring our heritage throughout favorite foods from 4:00 - 5:45PM during the Palmer Art Walk at Fireside as she signs copies of her new delicious book. To really enhance your experience with the book, Fireside will be offering a select few an opportunity to partake in a banquet following the book signing at 6:00PM hosted at Turkey Red where guests will get to have dinner with Lael and learn about their meal from the chef and owner of Turkey Red, Alex Papasavas. Tickets for the banquet are $33.00 and can be purchased at Fireside Books or through their web-site at: goodbooksbadcoffee.
COVER UPS: This favorite upcycled furniture store and Alaska Chicks retail location will be conducting product demonstrations using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. DIY professional, Kathy Stone, will also be available to provide suggestions and answer any questions visitors may have about tackling their own home DIY projects.
PALMER MUSEUM: The Museum will be hosting an artist reception for its latest temporary exhibit, Beyond the Classroom. The exhibit features high school student art work comprised of a variety of media that has been reviewed by a panel of guest judges representing the Palmer Museum, the Valley Fine Arts Association, Valley Arts Alliance, Palmer Arts Council and the MatSu College Art Department. During the reception, guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite artist to help decide this year's Best in Show. This is the third year the Museum has hosted Beyond the Classroom which is generously being sponsored by Blaine's Art Supply in Anchorage and Cheap Joe's Art Stuff. The exhibit is designed to encourage the younger artists in our community to continue making art a part of their lives. Light refreshments will be served during the reception and as a special treat, the Museum will have a special kite making station set up for guests to decorate and build their own kite!
