Catherine Doss Senungetuk's Exhibit Opens Tonight
I posted about this retrospective art exhibit not long ago. It opens tonight (Friday) from 5 - 7 pm at Out North. Since I wrote that post, Catherine's health has taken a turn for the worse and she's back in the hospital. We visited on Wednesday. There were others there as well. The setting was pretty good for being in a hospital. The view out the window of the Chugach was spectacular.
And while we were there a harpist wheeled in her instrument and played beautiful music for half an hour or so.
But it was a hospital room as the equipment loudly proclaimed.
Do come to Out North for the opening.
[Update: Catherine left us after the exhibition.]
UPDATE Jan. 1, 2011: A Celebration of Catherine’s Life will be held in Anchorage at the Alaska Native Lutheran Church at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, January 14, 2011. A reception will follow at the Out North Contemporary Art House. In lieu of flowers, please offer a donation in Catherine’s memory to a charity of your choice.
