September Featured Artist at Juneau Artists Gallery

Merridy Davis is the featured artist for the month of September at the Juneau Artists Gallery. Merridy creates colorful cutwork banners featuring Alaskan marine mammals, birds and fish. Hand cut nylon panels are sewn to fabric tape to create festive works of art to add color and motion to spaces for any celebration or to just cheer up a room. Also featured are fun hand cut stickers – a perfect way to personalize laptops, water bottles and cars or to put in a window to help deter birds from trying to fly through.

Come meet Merridy as she demonstrates her craft at our First Friday event on September 1, from 4:30 to 7 pm. Find us on the ground floor of the Senate Building, 175 South Franklin St. Great treats will be provided.
