There will be an amazing number of Alaska artists and commercial vendors at the annual Seward Holiday Fair this weekend at the Train Depot. Once the train came from Anchorage with hundreds of people who wanted to see Santa Claus, and Seward, but then there was an avalanche warning and the railroad stopped the trains at Christmas to Seward. If we keep up our momentum, maybe they’ll change their minds again and bring up people from Anchorage which would bring big business to the town of Seward the first Saturday of every December. Until then, we the artists who are […]Read more ›

By Heidi Zemach – Seward High School drama class debuted “Acting Can Be Murder,” the annual fall play Tuesday, December 3rd. There will be two more performances, tonight (Wednesday) December 4th, and Thursday, December 5th. A cast of 14 students worked very hard on this full length, 2 hour play, directed by Dan Marshall, with technical direction by Mark Techenbrock, and costumes and makeup by Nikki Berry. The play is darker than most Seward High School productions perhaps-but still a comedy, filled with double-meanings and misunderstandings, that gets many laughs throughout. Robin McKnight stars as Dolores Gordon, the understudy—and […]Read more ›

Kurva Choir opening with Blackwater Railroad Saturday Dec 7th @ 7p.m. $10 at the door, Resurrect Art “This experimental chamber orchestra approaches music with an ethos of minimalist, intimate, sonic simplicity.
