Formerly shuttered art house reopens
ANCHORAGE – Out North Contemporary Art House is back open after closing last summer.
It’s going to take help from the community, however, to make sure the doors don’t lock again.
Out North shut down after nearly three decades in operation due to lack of funding. Now, the organization is hoping to move forward.
It has five board members working to stay open on a month-to-month basis.
“It’s going to take you, it’s going to take me, it’s going to take everybody in this community and all the great people who support arts in Anchorage,” said Shelly Wozniak, Out North board member. “Anchorage is a vibrant arts community and I believe that together we’re going to be able to make Out North a viable and sustainable organization for years to come.”
Out North Contemporary Art House said it’s a place in Anchorage where art really pushes the envelope. Every eight weeks it invites community members to come and show what they’ve been working on.
