"Reflections of an Earlier Denali - the Art of Ree Nancarrow " will open with a reception on Friday, June 4 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Charles Sheldon Center, Denali Education Center, Mile 230 Parks Hwy. This is an exhibition that has never before been seen in one place: the silk screen prints that Ree Nancarrow created in the late 70's and early 80's.
The Crabb family built the McKinley Village and started a legacy across the Nenana River from the National Park. Linda Crabb collected each of Ree's thoughtful prints (all made without the aid of running water!) that reflect slices of life in Denali. Mindi and Karen Crabb, Linda's daughters, have generously offered to share this unique and one-of-a-kind collection throughout the summer.
Presentations will be made at the opening reception by Ree Nancarrow and Mindi Crabb about their connection to the silk screen collection and their history in the area. The exhibition will remain on view for most of the summer.
