Art appreciators can expect pottery, photography and recycled art at locations across Kodiak at the First Friday Art Walk by the Kodiak Arts Council.

The walk is 5-7 p.m. Friday.

At Harborside Fly By, images by Simply Lovette photography will be on display.

Northern Exposure Gallery will display more than 200 pieces of pottery by Elizabeth West, the gallery’s newest artist, and offer refreshments.

The Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge will showcase marine debris recycled art and photography by young artists. Leila Pyle, 19, the leader of the Refuge Youth Conservation Corps crew this year, will show art she created from recycled marine debris. The Youth Conservation Corps, four students ages 16-18, will have recycled debris art as well.

The Youth Conservation Corps will also be showing a slideshow of photos from a recent trip it took to do beach cleanup on Tugidak Island, the southernmost point in the Kodiak Archipelago.

In addition, 18 fourth through sixth graders who participated in the refuge’s salmon camp will display nature collages. The students took a picture of something in nature, a plant or insect, and then recreated the picture in a collage using paper, tissue and other materials.

More youth artwork will be on display at The Frame Shop. The submissions into The Frame Shop’s youth art contest will be on display and viewers can vote for their favorite to help choose the winner. The Frame Shop will also display images by Simply Lovette photography.

At the Kodiak Public Library, Kodiak high school art instructor Bonnie Dillard will show a welding and mosaic bench that was created by her high school art students.

Finally, the Baranov Museum will showcase pottery “inspired by Kodiak’s connection to the sea,” by Marnie Leist.

“Of course, I think people should come to every one, and each one is slightly different,” said Marie Acemah with the Kodiak Arts Coucil. “This one really features some amazing youth artists.”

In addition, the amount of pottery at this art walk is unusual. Acemah said in the year she’s been with the arts council, there has not been another pottery artist featured.

The Art Walk happens on the first Friday of each month. The artists, mediums and venues vary from month to month.
