The Alaska Railroad said Nov. 15 that it will release its 2012 annual print and posters at three public sale-and-signing events featuring artist Taffina Katkus who will be available to sign the prints and posters.
The first event will be in Seward, Dec. 2 from 5-8 p.m., at the Dale Lyndsey Intermodal Terminal. The second event will take place in Anchorage, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., at the Anchorage Historic Depot. The third and final event will be in Fairbanks, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Fairbanks Depot.
Entitled Seward Solidarity, the oil painting depicts a collage of scenes from the railroad’s southern terminus. This is the first Alaska Railroad annual art print to feature Seward.
The 2011 Alaska Railroad print costs $55, posters cost $30 and pins cost $5. During the Anchorage and Fairbanks events, the depot gift shops will be open to offer other items that feature the 2012 artwork, such as ornaments, mugs and coasters, along with other ARRC gifts and apparel.
Following the signing events, prints, posters and pins will remain on sale at the Anchorage Historic Depot and the Fairbanks Depot, and may also be purchased online via the Alaska Railroad Gift Shop website at www.AlaskaRailroadGiftShop.com/.
