Follow after the jump for more...<br /><br /><a name='more'></a><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uyafjK002Gc/UiprvDcvPiI/AAAAAAAAUqY/e3T2X18eB-U/s1600/gallery0.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="640" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uyafjK002Gc/UiprvDcvPiI/AAAAAAAAUqY/e3T2X18eB-U/s640/gallery0.web.jpg" width="476" /></a></div><br />Some of the other venues included an effort promoted by the <a href="http://downtownfairbanks.com/" target="_blank">Fairbanks Downtown Association</a>'s Public Works Committee as an urban renewal effort: "<a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/424421104333533/" target="_blank">The Window Project</a>." A dozen local artists were chosen from a field of applicants to have their work reproduced as giant installations in the windows of various buildings which are in need of some tenants.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-UEHL4ISqIqc/UitTaM1OMwI/AAAAAAAAUqw/wH4ExIodM64/s1600/windows.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="153" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-UEHL4ISqIqc/UitTaM1OMwI/AAAAAAAAUqw/wH4ExIodM64/s640/windows.web.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br />I provided a reference to several of the applicants, and a couple former students of mine also made the grade. Overall a strong gesture from business leaders as to the community-strengthening aspect of art and a sound investment in promoting a positive image for downtown.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--8JqpRnOX7M/UitTXzm0OxI/AAAAAAAAUqo/64VIw_wJE0Y/s1600/lucas.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="457" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--8JqpRnOX7M/UitTXzm0OxI/AAAAAAAAUqo/64VIw_wJE0Y/s640/lucas.web.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br />Only a few, with this one piece in particular (<a href="http://www.lucaselliottart.com/" target="_blank">Lucas Elliott</a>'s "Coup de Boule"), I felt fully met the conceptual criteria according to the theme for the series, which was "edge." Most successfully merged with the transformation into digital reproduction and scale. A large herd of folks met first at the <a href="http://fairbanksalaska.com/goldenheart/" target="_blank">Golden Heart Plaza</a> to get maps, voting slips and many opted to follow an official guide for tour review of all the pieces. It being rainy, the Significant Otter and I struck out on our own, and also took the opportunity to drop in a handful of other galleries and shops - one of the ulterior motives behind hosting such an evening of artistic events.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VrKGojVBp1Q/UitTeIcGMqI/AAAAAAAAUq4/_U83VHfSOrg/s1600/amara.show.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="307" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VrKGojVBp1Q/UitTeIcGMqI/AAAAAAAAUq4/_U83VHfSOrg/s640/amara.show.web.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br />One highlight was catching the opening for the works of an Advanced student I had this summer: Amara Joy Simmon's first solo show was at <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Keller-Architecture-Allied-Arts/168745449810172" target="_blank">Keller Architecture</a> + Allied Arts. With a provocative theme and commentary about gender issues and social sexualization, Amara's pieces operated on dual layers, seduction and repulsion/purity and loss, and the deceptively innocent style of drawings in particular perfectly illustrated the darker, more disturbing underlying content.
