AUGUST 2004
MUNOZ NEWS

Petersburg Art Show

On June 11 Rie Munoz made an artist appearance at Seaport Gallery in Petersburg, Alaska. This small community of 3,000 is about 300 miles south from Juneau on Mitkof Island. Show posters appeared all over town. Additional promotion included a newspaper article and radio interview. Seaport Gallery owner Fran Jones had the event catered. One of the many attendees was the skipper of the boat Middleton, a subject of one of Rie's well-known images.

Munoz took advantage of the harbor setting and sketched the active Petersburg waterfront. Petersburg has a large working commercial fishing fleet, and has been the subject of several paintings. It was hard for mom to get much sketching done, as everyone in Petersburg knew that Rie Muoz was coming to town. It didnt help that she wore a long flamboyant red coat, which waved like a flag on the docks.

Rie signed books, posters and prints throughout the evening. She ended the night by signing the bar stool she borrowed from the local tavern. Im sure that seat will be reserved for only the best customers!


Quilting Cruise Group Visits Gallery

On June 30, twenty-five people from the Quilt for a Cure cruise visited the Rie Munoz Gallery. The cruise aboard the MS Amsterdam was organized to help fund the search for the cure of breast cancer. Among the attendees were long time friends and enthusiastic supporters Claradell and Harry Shedd. They presented Rie with a quilt they had all made and our gallery gave personalized gift baskets. We showed the Shedds around Juneau pointing out the scenes that have inspired Rie. Claradell and Harry enjoyed a crab feed at Ries studio, driving up to the Mendenhall Glacier and a spin around the Auke Bay harbor on our 24' Olympic boat. Well, they enjoyed two out of three of the before mentioned activities..

Rie Munozs 1975 image, Ptarmigan Telegraph appears on the cover of the book, Ptarmigan Telegraph, the Story of Radio Station KICY by Greg Asimakoupoulos. It is published by Arctic Broadcasting Association Inc. in Chicago, Illinois. For more information see www.kicy.org. Ptarmigan Telegraph is a popular program on radio station KICY in Nome, Alaska. Listeners call or write in messages for friends and relatives and these brief messages are read on the air.
