October First Friday “Outdoor Adventures” by Andy Rogers
First Friday’s are back at TRAX with great eats from Friar Tucks Hoagie House and beer on tap from HooDoo, live music by the Rock Bottom Stompers and an amazing artist that hails from Anchorage, Alaska! Andy Rogers is an Alaska-born artist and author, raised in the rural outskirts of Palmer. He grew up hiking, hunting and exploring the Chugach and Talkeetna mountains, and canoeing the lakes and rivers of Southcentral Alaska. The quiet pace and rugged challenges of rural life and hard work inform both his writing and his art as does the beautiful wilderness of his home. His art is centered around paintings and pen work. He pushes the boundaries and expectations of watercolor, mimicking the opacity of acrylic paint or the transparent glazes of oils.
