First Friday Acquisition Reception
Venue or organization:
On Friday, October 6th from 4:30-7:00pm, the City Museum will host an acquisition reception for the painting "Bend in the River" by Sydney Laurence. This landscape, painted in the flats near where the airport is located today, is a fine example of Laurence’s work in the Juneau area, his skill, and his dedication to plein-air painting. "Bend in the River" was donated to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum in memory of William D. De Armond, who died in Seattle at the age of 79 on June 28, 2017. "Bend in the River" will be on view for the public beginning with this First Friday reception and running through the end of October.
