This is the gallery for about 30 local artists There is pottery, photography, wood working, leather, paintings, and many other
works. This is all quality stuff. None like some tourist shops that have imported tourist stuff.

I was here today & found myself coming back to many pieces. I'm searching for just one, somewhat large piece of art work to take back to Australia with me as opposed to something smaller. Unfortunately I've yet to find what I was looking. However there were some beautiful pieces at Ptarmigan Arts and I was truly tempted to purchase a couple of pieces (if it weren't for a firm agreement with the other half.... sigh).

I'm sitting here regretting not getting one of Kathie Baldwin's as I write. But many of the works were lovely & not necessarily what I've seen in many of the other galleries I've visited in Alaska so far.

There are several other galleries on this street & I actually liked them more than most of those out on the spit. I'm not a collector but am looking for a really nice 50th birthday present for my hubbie to "find" for me...lol.....so 95% of the items in all the stores I'm walking into are in my price range.

Of course head out to the Spit - its fun & there are a couple of stores out there that are really nice but definitely dont miss the galleries on E. Pioneer Ave.

Your review will really please our artists, who own and operate the gallery. Thank you for taking the time to share your observations about Ptarmigan Arts and the other year-round galleries on Pioneer Avenue in Homer. And of course we hope you'll find the perfect piece of artwork to take back to Australia.
