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.
