Join us for First Friday in September

Downtown Fairbanks is a thriving  art scene. Celebrate the arts on the first Friday of every month with us at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center. Many local galleries, restaurants and other shops each host the works of an artist.Visit them all and enjoy an easy arts walk among the sights of downtown!

This month's artist is Carol Wilbur. She works out of her private studio located at Well Street Art Company in Fairbanks.

Carol is a lifelong Alaskan.  Her family moved to Alaska in 1965, fulfilling a dream of her father’s to live and raise a family here.The inspiration for her work in walrus ivory is inspired by her father and his deep reverence for the Native people of Alaska.

Many of the pieces in her collection are made from scraps of prehistoric
artifacts, such as a sled runner or spearhead, objects that were
critical to survival of their makers.

Where: Morris Thompson Cultural and              Visitors Center
When: Friday, September 2nd 5-8 p.m.
The term “fossilized” walrus ivory is a bit of a misnomer – “mineralized” is a more accurate term, as the ivory takes on the colors of the surrounding minerals in the soil where it’s buried.
