This is a group show, showcasing the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. Meet the artists at this reception. The show will be hanging for the whole month of January. 2024 marks the 40th running of the John Beargrease Dog Sled Race. The race honors John Beargrease, a Native American from the North Shore who provided mail service to the area residents. Since the race’s inception, artists have drawn inspiration from the determination and fortitude of the sled dogs and their mushers. This collection represents years of artists following these incredible journeys along the North Shore. Displaying watercolor artists: Sarah Keefer, Brittany North, and Nancy Ensley. Displaying photographers: Sandi Coates, John Sumner, Jodell Kruse, George Eggers, Matt Vollum, Amber Nichols, Kim Christenson, Kristy Johnson and Kyle Krohn. A special thanks to everyone that has made the past forty years of the Beargrease come to life. This show is a reflection of their efforts displayed through art.
