Alexandra Bookless by David Woodie, oil on canvas mounted on panel.
The work of Juneau artist David Woodie will fill our Murray Gallery beginning May, 2016 and remain up throughout our summer season. Woodie has exhibited at the City Museum in the past, as well as at other prominent venues around the state including the Alaska State Museum and the Anchorage Museum of History and Art.
David Woodie began painting after almost two decades in Alaska as a logger and commercial fisherman. For the past thirteen years he taught drawing, painting, art history and design at the University of Alaska Southeast. His work displays a unique personal style about shared experience in ‘life on the last frontier’.
