Homer Council of the Arts
Homer Council of the Arts (HCOA) is the heart of artistic activity in Katchemak Bay and the lower Kenai Peninsula. Make its gallery your first stop in town.
HCOA sponsors concerts, art exhibits, plays and crafts, and offers arts classes, workshops and discussion groups. Its shows and activities are for all ages and tastes; lineups include both local and international artists and musicians. HCOA Gallery at 355 W. Pioneer Ave. is open Monday-Friday, 1-5 p.m. First Friday Art Walks 5-7 p.m. celebrate exhibition openings.
The gallery frequently offers live concerts and has a public library of art books and videos. Consult the Homer Community Arts Calendar on the HCOA website for the latest classes, live music, and craft “faires”, which offer unique items by local artists. From October to April, “Creative Communities” meetings give musicians, writers, and artists of all types a venue for sharing their original works.
HCOA nurtures artists and art connoisseurs alike, from professional artists to visiting dabblers. Come to a concert, a class, or a creative conversation. The HCOA, like Homer, welcomes visitors with open arms.
