By coincidence, common themes sometimes happen at new shows opening at Homer galleries. This month, that theme is explorations in natural media like clay, wood and stone. At Ptarmigan Arts Back Room Gallery, local artists Deb Lowney and Dan Fischer collaborate on "Sticks and Stones," using found objects like driftwood, beach stones and pushki stalks to create durable art suitable for display indoors and outdoors. "Being Here," Sitka artist Rebecca Poulson's show at Fireweed Gallery, uses wood to create wood-cut engravings and prints.
