Contemporary art with traditional themes


The town of Ketchikan was the last stop on our Alaska inner passage cruise.  After our usual jaunt up and down the nearest mountain, we set off in search of some souvenirs to take home for friends (and for us!).  Yup, we waited until almost the last possible moment to go post card and magnet shopping!


On our travels through the town, I came across my new favorite contemporary artist, Evon Zerbetz.  Evon does wonderful hand colored linocuts which draw heavily on native images, icons, stories, and lore.  I bought several post cards and note cards featuring Evon's work (shown here).  I'm drooling over perhaps someday acquiring one of his full-sized prints.  In the meantime, I will continue to drool over my post cards and will probably visit his website so many times that I single-handedly crash it!
