The cityís architecture has caught the eye of many of Juneauís artists who have taken their canvases to their windows or directly to the streets in order to capture the colors and shapes of the buildings and surrounding foliage as well as how the seasons change the scenes around us. This exhibit features eight works of art by five local artists: Phyllice Bradner, Barbara Craver, Jay Crondahl, Sue Kraft and Alan Munro. Each painting is accompanied by a quote from the artist as well as some historical information about the building or area seen in the painting. The exhibit runs November 7, 2014 through April 18, 2015 in the Map Case Gallery.
