FEATURED ARTISTS

UAF's Professor Wendy Croskrey

Wendy Croskrey - Sculptures

"I seek inspiration from ordinary objects and various aspects of nature such as, rocks, the pooling of water, floating forms and the colours of the natural world. Objects that appeal to me usually reference social and historical significance. The use of materials and manner of its application expresses the artist’s internal state at the time. Some works are not just the artist's observation, but also a combination of each individual viewer, a moment of shared humanity drawing the viewer into an intimate exchange. The quality of the material and the way it is utilized can also stand in for the quality of things represented. My work attempts to change the meanings of everyday objects, reevaluating or negating expected functions in order to intensify or change the viewers’ perception of the work." - University of Alaska Fairbanks

Metal works by Becky Anderso - via Daily Miner News

Becky Anderson - Decorative Metal

"Becky Anderson is one of those artists you remember — not only for her creativity but also for her charisma and passion for community. 'While my primary medium is fused glass, I started focusing on metal over a year ago, learning by trial and mostly error. While the learning curve has been steep, I am really excited about my new works of holographic etched metal wall art. Who knew power tools could be so much fun?! Creating these stainless steel and aluminum pieces gave me the same feeling as dreams in which I can fly! I never would have guessed that, but my feeling of euphoria was undeniable.'" - The Daily Miner

 

Helga Wagenleiter - Stained Glass

"People of the Upper Tanana Valley call her 'The German Woman,' and this is how she has become known. Helga Wagenleiter is a Native German who moved to Alaska in 1981, because she was attracted to the nature, beauty and lifestyle of this great land.. She left her homeland to pursue her own freedom...When describing her artwork, Helga explains that 'My creations of different glass products range from small angel broaches, to picture frames, mirrors, thermometers to larger window hangings and structural pieces, both traditional and/or contemporary in design and technique.'" - Offtheroad.com

Craig Buchanan - Alaskan Junkyard Art

Craig's art is basically junk from the dump. "Out in Ester, roughly 10 miles west of Fairbanks, Buchanan’s home is a testament to found objects. He’s been collecting found objects and re-purposing them into sculpture since the 1970s. His 'Great Alaskan Outhouse Experience,' commissioned by the University of Alaska Museum of the North, is perhaps the most well-known. He called that piece, a massive outhouse decked out in found goods, a 'tribute to Interior Alaskans.' 'You can’t image the amount of stuff I’ve found there that was re-purposed,' he said. He pointed to one sculpture, made primarily of bulk 35 millimeter film canisters that he found at the transfer station, now painted and lined up neatly on a canvas, hanging on the back exterior wall of his home." - Alaska Dispatch News

Autumn Mallonee - Aurora Borealis Photography

Autumn is relatively new to Fairbanks and like most transplants, she cannot help but be in awe of the Aurora Borealis. Southern California native and animal lover, she has developed a niche in photographing the Northern Lights. "My husband and I are constantly checking on the aurora reports to see when the lights will be out. They are such a beautiful sight to see. I honestly feel like it is an addiction."
