Saturday morning, May 13, from 10-12, please join V Rae for a family friendly craft event: Make Something for Mom with V Rae. V Rae will help you create something special to give mom on Mother’s Day. This craft event is free to the public with paid admission and free to ASLC members.


According to her website: “Whether sailing Alaska coastal waters or snorkeling Hawaiian shores, V Rae chronicles natural life through bold portraits that leap from the canvas to your heart.  Defying convention in a startling fusion of color and negative space, V paints Freestyle Expressions that transport each personal encounter through time and space, sharing with the world her seamless blend of art, nature and individual personality.

“Like Humpback whales, V migrates between Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii each year painting from platforms frequented by her subjects.  V is Artist In Residence at the Alaska Zoo and Alaska SeaLife Center.  A growing body of V Rae Freestyle Expressions are featured in zoos, aquariums, national parks and galleries across the Continental United States.

“Each year a portion of V’s work is dedicated to wildlife preservation efforts that protect and sustain the natural tension between subsistence and conservation unique to Alaska and Hawaii, as well as non-profit humanitarian outreach.”
