Ketchikan Museums Acquires
Terry Pyles Painting
June 12, 2004
Ketchikan, Alaska - A new work by Ketchikan artist Terry Pyles
was recently acquired for the permanent collection of the Ketchikan
Museums, thanks to a generous grant from the Rasmuson Foundation.
New Eddystone Rock, a 26x46-inch acrylic painting, was
purchased through the Art Acquisition Initiative, a program of
the Rasmuson Foundation.
The Rasmuson Foundation created
the Art Acquisition Initiative early in 2003 to encourage and
support practicing Alaskan artists by helping museums within
the state to purchase their work. The program is administered
by Museums Alaska, the statewide association of museums. Terry
Pyles's painting is the fourth work of art by local artists that
Ketchikan Museums has purchased through the Initiative.
