Portable Southeast Traveling Exhibit

What is Portable Southeast?

Portable Southeast is a traveling gallery exhibit that will begin during the 2022-2023 JAHC Gallery Season. All works should be inspired by life in coastal communities, small and/or packable, all media are eligible. The exhibit will be curated by a group of people who represent various communities across Southeast Alaska.

The goal is to coordinate a body of work by Southeast Alaskan artists that would tour the region from October 2022-June 2023. The mission of this project is to provide exhibit opportunities for artists outside of their hometown, to build communication & networking opportunities among both large and small Southeast Alaska communities, and to create new partnerships between arts agencies and museums in Southeast Alaska.

How does work get selected for this exhibit?

Three regional curators will review entries and rate them. A number of pieces [to be determined] will be selected for the exhibition. The review process will be entirely digital, at no cost. Curators will represent each of the following regions: 

  • Northern Southeast: Yakutat, Haines, Skagway, Juneau, Gustavus, Hoonah, Pelican. 
  • Middle Southeast: Sitka, Angoon, Petersburg, Kake, Tenakee. 
  • Southern Southeast: Ketchikan, Craig, Wrangell, Hydaburg, Klawock, Metlakatla.

Each region will have two communities represented in the exhibition schedule.
