Our 2018 Distinguished Artist is Alvin Amason

“I paint Alaskan animals of today,” says Alvin Amason, “I’m glad I have my heritage, but I don’t want to rely on it. Culture just doesn’t work if it is put on a shelf, in a jar, in a museum. It is a living thing. Time goes on and cultural elements change.”
