Lowell built this huge gallery on his homestead to show his life's work. The immense oils of Alaska landscapes, which are not for sale, hang in a building that counts as one of Alaska's larger art museums. Although Lowell's work is traditionally representational, many paintings carry raw emotions capable of reaching the most cynical viewer. Admission is free, and Lowell and his wife, Libby, usually host guests who walk through. Their old-time Alaskan hospitality is a delight. A large gift shop sells nothing but Lowell's work; paintings range from $750 to $30,000, and prints start at $100 (no credit cards). Wander the grounds to see a real wilderness homestead. The Lowells are trying to sell, so stop at this unique place while you still can.
