The Girdwood Center for the Visual Arts is a nonprofit co-op gallery featuring over 40 Alaska artists who work in a wide variety of media. This intimate gallery has a little something for everyone. Each purchase made at the Center supports the continuation of arts in the Last Frontier.
For more than 25 years, volunteers have selflessly dedicated their time and energy to provide a local venue for artists, encouraging a desire to share and explore art. Workshops, as well as hosting solo and group shows, continue to inspire artists and add new talent to our organization. The Center provides a variety of community events to keep art alive in Alaska.
Recognized as a leader in Alaska’s arts community, the Center receives grants from the Anchorage Arts Advisory Commission and Alaska Arts and Cultural Foundation. Just as important, the Center enjoys the support of the members of the Girdwood community through their generous donations of time and financial contributions.
As a result of all this support, pottery, fabric, oil painting, watercolors, silk painting, woodworking, jewelry, glass, and more are available at our enchanting gallery. Visit us and take home a unique interpretation of Alaska from the Girdwood Center for the Visual Arts.
Located one mile from The Hotel Alyeska on Olympic Circle, next to the Bake Shop. Open daily 10 am to 6 pm.
