FRIENDS OF THE HOMER LIBRARY


Our mission is to provide support for the Homer Public Library programs and services,

to raise funds that enrich the library experience, and to promote the use and enjoyment of the library.




Art is an integral part of the Homer community.  Every year we ask local artists to send us samples of their work and a Community Artworks Selection Panel selects the pieces that will be displayed at the library. None of the works on display are for sale, but it is an opportunity for artists to showcase their work. We seek artists at all stages of their artistic endeavors. 

Four Featured artist(s)/groups July-September 2022

Homer Senior Citizen Residents: Cherry Jones and Rosemary Crowder with staff Angela Shank and Liz Carroll


Scott Ulmer

Photos printed on canvas

Scott Ulmer has been involved with photography for 50 years, spending many hours in the darkroom in years past.  Scott says the shift to digital images, opened up an entire new dimension for him.  He makes these photos on canvas primarily for personal enjoyment and the opportunity to create something with a unique perspective. This is Scott’s first art debut, having only shown his photos with family and friends.  


Audrey Wallace

Acrylic paintings on canvas

Audrey Wallace grew up in Homer and is a Homer High School graduate. She went on to attend UAA in Anchorage and took several classes in the arts and music sector. She now resides in Homer and creates vibrant paintings on canvas. The two paintings on display were inspired by her life in what some call our “cosmic hamlet by the sea.”
