Join us in The Loft this October for First Firkin Friday featuring the amazing artworks of Amy Vail & Katy Grant! 2 different artists and all the creative genius combine forces to present Spokes & Petals: a special art show with especially unique styles on display. From stained glass on bike wheels to pressed flower arrangements, the marriage of color and form is unique and undeniably eye catching.
Festivities start at 5pm as we tap into a firkin of 2020 Berserker conditioned with toasted marshmallow and cocoa nibs
Artist Amy Vail, originally from Ohio, is a transplant to Alaska where she has laid down deep roots. Her father was a stained glass artist and taught her the basics 40 years ago. After retiring in 2020, she finally had the time to put those lessons to good use. Following a request for glass on a bike wheel, she found her medium, shifted gears, and
hasn’t looked back.
Artist Katy Countryman Grant was born and raised in Alaska. Her love for Alaska inspires her to create artwork highlighting native wildﬂowers.
Katy’s mom came to Alaska to teach school and taught her the art of pressing and arranging flowers over 40 years ago. The opportunity to study photography at the Art Institute of Boston was a life-changing experience and continues to shape her work.
