    Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit

    Solo Exhibition

    November 4, 2022 - January 7, 2023 


    In her solo exhibition Midnight at the Fireworks Stand, artist Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit considers the ways in which western contact continues to shape Indigenous communities, from potlaches to the poverty-to-prison pipeline. 


    Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit is a multidisciplinary artist from Yakutat. She is believed to be the first Tlingit woman to carve and raise a totem pole. Bremner studied under master artists David R. Boxley and David A. Boxley in Kingston, Washington. Her mediums include painting, woodcarving, regalia and digital. In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalization of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use. 


    Bremner says: "Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution, Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world."


    The exhibit opens at the Alaska State Museum in Juneau on Friday, November 4, 4:30–7:00 pm and runs through January 7, 2023.


    Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit is one of six artists selected for the Alaska State Museum 2020-2023 Solo Artist Exhibition Series, along with artists Ben Huff, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Gail Priday, Jannah Sexton-Atkins, and Mitch Watley.

    Gail Priday

    Solo Exhibition

    December 2, 2022 - February 2, 2023 


    Artist Gail Priday finds inspiration from the natural world, specifically the boreal forest. Her solo exhibition, Up Close and Under Foot, includes 33 paintings that depict “ever-changing treasures up-close and underfoot.”


    She came to Alaska from the East Coast more than a decade ago and was immediately drawn to the forest floor.


    “I knew I would love the mountains and expansive sky, but I did not expect to be so taken with the underbrush and fungus,” Priday explains. “The easily overlooked features of the landscape hold great significance to me. They suggest an extraordinary and active world that exists quietly beside my own.”


    In her paintings, she combines elements of realism and imagination to portray fungus, lichen, leaves, and other life in the understory.


    The exhibit opens at the Alaska State Museum in Juneau on Friday, December 2, 4:30–7:00 pm and runs through February 2, 2023.


    Gail Priday is one of six artists selected for the Alaska State Museum 2020-2023 Solo Artist Exhibition Series, along with artists Ben Huff, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit, Jannah Sexton-Atkins, and Mitch Watley.
