With local creators in mind, HCOA focuses on Homer, Kenai Peninsula, Alaskan Native, and Alaskan artists. From Emerging to Mid-Career, the Gallery Exhibit Program is committed to engaging and connecting the community through the arts.
Where Artists EMERGe
We feature local, Kenai Peninsula artists with a focus on emerging and mid-career. Homer Council on the Arts is proud to launch artists into satisfying and productive careers.
Art is the expression of human creativity and imagination. Through our unique lens, we see beauty in the world in many different forms. Whether it is a photograph, painting, sculpture, literature, or any other unique form of expression, we a proud to exhibit our local artist's work.
Community Art Calls
A couple of times a year, we put out a call to our local community to gather a broad perspective of art works based on a theme. Living in a community where art is often vocation and avocation gives HCOA opportunity to share a plethora of styles and mediums of our local talent.
