      Gift Guide for Artists

      For the creatives in your life!ย 

      The color wheel card shows a simple spectrum of the rainbow with accompanying festive names, because who doesโ€™t love candles, yule logs, and red wine?!ย 

      Cross Stitch for the Soul is exactly what the title says. Cross stitch is a great way to take a step back, create, and be mindful with your time. Plus youโ€™ll be left with a masterpiece!ย 

      The Blackwing Pearl Pencil is for the sketchers out there! This pencil glides over sketch paper beautifully and does a marvelous job at shading with precision. Pop these in the Poketo pencil caseย to toss in your art bag (we know itโ€™s crazy in there) so you stay organized and donโ€™t get pigment everywhere.ย 

      The Akimbo earring collection made of hammered brass was created to represent the beauty of Alaska and the allure of adventure. These are flying out of the jewelry cases so check out the entire collection on kindredpost.comย 

      The stacking rock eraser is a two-in-one; cute and functional. Itโ€™s a great edition to a creative space, plus holy erasing power-these will last you a while!ย 

      The Classic Molskine Planner for the artists that like to jot down their creative and personal plans to keep things all organized. We get you.ย 

      โ€˜Sorry for late replyโ€™ pin just speaks to us. IYKYK.ย

      Calling Alaskan-based Artists!

      Calling Alaskan-based Artists!

      We are now accepting applications for 2023 First Friday featured artists at Kindred Post through December 20! We love hosting artists who want to share their craft and connect with their community. We welcome artists of all kinds, in any medium, and at all experience levels.

      This past year we have hosted an introduction to alcohol inks, a polaroid photo booth with hand-crocheted backgrounds, a wheel-throwing demo, linocut print-making, and more!

      We are especially excited by opportunities that allow the community to interact with you and/or your work - anything that invites our neighbors to participate / make / take / play together, etc. To honor the additional labor and imagination involved in such projects, we offer small stipends ($75 check OR a $100 gift certificate) to support this work.

      Artists interested in having a pop-up shop at Kindred Post are encouraged to apply for First Friday, but are ineligible for the stipend unless there is an added interactive element to the event.

      We cannot wait to give you a space to share your work with the world!

      If interested fill out this application. If this isn't for you,ย forward this to an artist you know.ย

      2022 Statewide Postcard Contest Winners!

      2022 Statewide Postcard Contest Winners!

      Kindred Post is so happy to be a part of this yearโ€™s statewide postcard competition! Each year we relish in the beauty, creativity, and amazing community we have here in Alaska. It is always a joy to promote artists in such a personal way that shares their many perspectives.ย 

      Here is our announcement about the artists and why the postcard contest was born.

      _________________________________________________________________________

      July 15ย 

      Today Kindred Post announced the ten winners of their statewide postcard art contest, all Alaskan artists. Each winning artist will receive $100 and their work will be printed on 1000 postcards to be featured at Kindred Post.ย 

      The contest winners were chosen from nearly 300 submissions from across the state โ€” representing the largest pool of submissions since the biennial contest began in 2017. Selections are made by a panel of judges composed by community members. This year's judges included Lily Ayau, Angela Cox, Tripp Crouse, Brita Fagerstrom, Jill Kaasteen, Maka Monture, and Mercedes Muรฑoz.

      The art depicted in the submissions represented a diversity of mediums as well as identities. "What I love about this contest is it shows us the many ways Alaskans experience Alaska through their work," says Kindred Post owner Christy NaMee Eriksen. "Not only do we receive different types of art, but we receive different types of worldviews. Why people take photos of what they do, paint what they do, examine what they do - it's all influenced by their experience as women, as queer, as indigenous, as Asian Americam, etc. Of course they all have this in common: they love Alaska."

      Tens of thousands of postcards are sent from Kindred Post, a post office and gift shop, each year. "I love that we get to help showcase a more inclusive picture of this place as people are visiting and writing home," Eriksen says.ย
