Each year, The Northern Alaska Environmental Center chooses an artist whose work embodies the spirit of Northern Alaska, and features an original work on publicity materials. In 2019, we tried out something different, and featured one image, Apay’uq Moore’s “Splendors of Family,” (above) at multiple events throughout the year.

Like last year, we’re looking for an original piece by an Alaska artist to be featured on our event publicity and fundraising materials throughout 2020, with the original being auctioned in the fall/winter. The featured artist will be compensated and a contract will be negotiated individually with the selected artist.

How to Be Considered

If you’re a visual artist interested in contributing an original work this year, please send your CV and links to your website and social media to events coordinator Caitlin Lenahan at events@northern.org by February 28.  Feel free to contact us with any questions.
