Join us in welcoming our juror for the 2021 exhibit: Tlingit artist Alison Bremner!

Annual Alaska Breastfeeds Exhibition
The Alaska Breastfeeds Art Exhibition is a visual celebration, examination, and exploration of breastfeeding from the perspective of individual Alaskan artists. Visual artists residing in the state of Alaska are invited to respond to this call for entries in any medium which conceptually addresses the theme of breastfeeding. As a whole, the Alaska Breastfeeds Exhibition seeks to promote the normalization of breastfeeding as a normal, healthy, and natural way of feeding a baby or child in Alaska.
The 2021 Exhibition will be hosted virtually by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council and available for viewing through the month of September. The deadline to apply is Sunday, August 15 by midnight AKST. Artists may submit up to three works for consideration.

About the JAHC Gallery Program
The Gallery Program is used to promote cultural awareness, stimulate creativity, educate, and provide a community service. This program supports both established, new, and emerging Alaskan artists showing new works by providing exhibiting opportunities, and while representing the broadest spectrum of visual art media. Gallery exhibits rotate on a monthly basis and open during First Friday, with virtual receptions from 4:30 – 7pm.
The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council will continue to offer virtual gallery exhibit opportunities to artists and gallery patrons as our community navigates through the pandemic. These exhibits can be viewed from a smartphone, tablet, or computer; any hour of the day from any location. Any artist currently scheduled for a virtual exhibition should visit www.jahc.org/virtual-exhibit-resources/ for more resources to help you better prepare your work for virtual platforms.
