Two artists share an Alaskan adventure, a century apart

Art and nature lovers may behold the majesty of Alaska, through the eyes of two artists living a century apart.
One artist is Rockwell Kent, the 20th century painter and illustrator, who spent much of his life at Asgaard, his farm in Au Sable Forks, New York. In 1918 he visited a small island in Alaska. The artwork and writings he produced during the seven month-period helped his artistic reputation flourish.
The other artist is an emerging filmmaker, Eric Downs of Kenai, Alaska. Downs felt so inspired by Kent’s adventures in his state, he made them the subject of his short film A Dreamer’s Search. The first-time filmmaker’s work has already been accepted into seven film festivals.
