We’re partnering with the good people at NorthWind Architects to put on a Halloween Haunted House art show.
Submit your unframed haunted house cross sections or blue prints to the gallery by October 28th.
If you’re unfamiliar with cross sections or cut aways, here’s a great pyramid by our friend Scott C.
This is an all ages show so please keep the blood and guts to a tasteful excess.

We’re excited to invite Juneau K-12 students to exhibit at the Alaska Robotics Gallery during our annual Student Show of the Comics Arts. We have a fairly loose interpretation of “comic art” and will accept character designs, fan art, panels, pages, editorials or any other piece which the student feels might suit the show.
Submissions are due April 1st. Please include a completed submission form along with your wall ready piece of art.
The student show will open First Friday, April 3rd and be displayed through the month of April. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
