Successful art show at Morris Thompson Cultural Center
This past Friday I had a one-evening-only art show at the Morris Thompson Cultural Center here is Fairbanks. Saw some old friends, made some new ones--even sold a few drawings.
For some one like me, these events are important places to learn more about the history of Interior Alaska. I have found that writing about historic sites spurs individuals to tell me the details that haven't made it in to the history books yet.
In the photo I pose with Dave Witt, who became the newest owner of one of my drawings. He also filled me in on life in Big Delta during the late 1940s, and working for the Fairbanks Exploration Company while he was in high school.
