This was our small store on Homer Spit, in Homer, Alaska. We happily opened our seasonal store, Brown Bear Products, gallery in May of 2012. In these pictures, taken in summer of 2013, you can see Erik’s art along with the work of ten other local artists. There are also not only books illustrated by Erik and written by Linda but also by other Alaskan authors.
The following are a list of projected artists to be found in our gallery in the summer of 2014.
