It’s time for another hot, hot, hot Iron Pour! Yes, for the 10th consecutive year, the Valley Arts Alliance Art on Fire Iron Pour Art Fest will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2017 in Wasilla. 

We’re calling this year’s event 10 x 100 because it’s our 10th consecutive year, and the 100th anniversary of the City of Wasilla. 

In the weeks preceding this event, Pat Garley (441-6728) will be offering workshops in metal casting and mold making at his studio in Palmer. 

During the event, artist Sandra Cook, who owns SL Cook Pottery and Fiber Werks in Palmer, will conduct her Raku pottery workshop, the Association of Alaskan Blacksmiths will demonstrate blacksmithing techniques, Judy Vars will demonstrate encaustic wax painting and other fiery arts, such as glass flame working, will also be demonstrated. Sahara Storm Tribal Dance Troupe will also perform. Live music and food will be available.

The 10 x 100 VAA Art on Fire Iron Pour Art Fest will be held at the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry, located at 3800 W. Museum Drive (near the airport) in Wasilla, from 10am until 5pm on Saturday, June 24th. The ticket price is $10, with children under 12 admitted free.  

Please join the fun!  We hope to turn this day into an extraordinary Iron Pour Art Fest in the Valley!
