Starting this Friday, the work of a former professor and her pupil will be on display at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.
Retired University of Alaska art professor Alice Tersteeg and former student and teaching assistant Dianne Anderson are bringing a show called “Favorites” to the museum. There will be an opening reception from 4:30-7 p.m. Friday.
The exhibit plays on the theme of teacher-student friendship, expressed through painting, printmaking and handmade paper collage that depict landscapes from Eagle Beach to Thane. There will be scenes of low tides, islands, the Mendenhall Glacier and watercolor flowers.
The event is free, and the artwork is up for sale. “Favorites” will be on display until Nov. 24.
The artists purposely chose to create smaller pieces measuring 5-by-7 inches or 8-by-10 inches. The pieces will fit in luggage and work well for those downsizing who have no wall space. Moving South might be in the future for both artists and creating treasures to take into retirement is a motivation.
