About The Organizers

The Painted Ladies...

Avid believers in the power of true community, the Painted Ladies seek to foster artistic opportunities and resources for fellow creatives. With strong roots in Alaska our artist retreats in The Last Frontier have become extremely popular and attended by artists working in many mediums and skill levels. Whether you are the best in the west, or just starting out, this event is designed to be an experience you'll cherish for the rest of your life. The Painted Ladies are not just your organizers, we are your colleagues and fellow art-repreneurs. It is our pleasure to welcome you on this adventure.

The Painted Ladies Talya Johnson, Karen Mattson, and Karen Whitworth
