Aaron and I will be in Seattle for Emerald City Comicon this week, it’s always a great show and we’re definitely looking forward to it.

You can find us in booth #106 next to our friends Marian Call, Molly Lewis and Lone Shark Games.

Student Show of the Comic Arts

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.

Alaska’s Best Galleries and Museums

Wednesday, July 30th 2014 by Pat

laska-robotics-insideWe were recently contacted by The Culture Trip, a site aimed at connecting travelers to local arts and cultural experiences:

“We have identified Alaska Robotics as one of the most exciting galleries in Alaska. So therefore we would would like to feature it in our article: Alaska’s 10 Best Contemporary Art Galleries.”

I was skeptical at first, I thought it might be some kind of Who’s Who scam but they didn’t try to hit us up for money or harvest any data.

As it turns out, they actually put together a quite well researched article on some of my favorite galleries and museums in Alaska. It covers a wide range of regional hubs and they really did their homework on each location.

Now, I don’t know if we belong in the top ten, that’s certainly debatable, but we’re certainly honored by the company. The list features some true cultural touchstones, places everyone should make time to visit.

Thanks to our wonderful employees, guest artists, friends, family and patrons for making the Alaska Robotics Gallery the kind of place that gets mentioned in articles like this!
