Sitka Art Invitational

I have five pieces in the Sitka Art Invitational this year. The Sitka Center for Art and Ecology fosters creative inquiry and education. The involvement, investigations, and creative work of artists and natural scientists help Sitka Center fulfill its mission to expand the relationships between art, nature and humanity through workshops, presentations and individual research projects.

Hundreds of volunteers, artists, donors, and art collectors have contributed to the growth and success of the Sitka Art Invitational, since its inception 16 years ago. This year, 132 artists are offering over 500 pieces of art! Collectors and art buyers are a key factor in the success of this fundraising event.

The Sitka Art Invitational is an important source of support for Sitka Center's Workshop and Residency Programs. The Workshop Program provides opportunities for artists to teach and study in workshops from late spring through early fall; the Residency Program offers opportunities for artists to pursue individual research projects from late fall through early spring. If you're moved to contribute to these programs and are not able to attend the Art Invitational, please feel free to donate online.
