The gallery features a wide range of contemporary Alaskan art, from sizeable focal point wood and metal wall art to bronze and wood sculptures, carved wood panels, and specialty prints on wood, metal, and paper. You’ll also find a variety of other art and gifts, including greeting cards and stickers.
The Dean Gallery is unique among gallery spaces. Its circular construction and timber frame displays, give you a taste of what people experience on our Dean Family Farm and Art Studio tours.
Tucked against the hill on the Homer bench, the setting for The Dean Gallery provides a beautiful view of Kachemak Bay and Kachemak Bay State Park. You’ll find us by driving out East End Road, one of Homer’s scenic drives. We’re only 10 or 15 minutes from the flashing yellow light on East Pioneer Avenue in downtown Homer or the base of the Homer Spit.
Whether you’ve lived in Homer for years, plan to visit soon, or are vacationing on the Kenai Peninsula, a visit to The Dean Gallery is an area highlight.
Ranja’s deep connection with the four-legged kingdom, the magic of life, and many a night adventuring beneath the stars inspires much of her art.
You’ll see her bronzes and hand-embellished giclée prints. The gallery also displays a few of her beautiful quilts for our Dean Family Farm and Art Studio tours.
Jeff has been making sculpture and wall art in clay, wood, bronze, stone, and steel since the late ’70s. His current focus is on creating significant, focal point wood and metal wall art.
He makes this metal wall decor using innovative techniques he has developed over the last 30 years. His metal wall art is available as both originals and metal photo prints. Jeff also spends much of his time creating commissioned artworks for clients across the country.
‘Nor ‘easter,’ one of his works of public art, can be seen in the Homer Volunteer Fire Hall’s Pocket Park on East Pioneer Avenue.
M’fanwy is an artist and graphic designer.
She uses tiny chisels to hand-carve intricate designs into painted wood panels, which are available in the gallery both as originals and as prints on maple.
M’fanwy bases many of her carvings on animals commonly found in Alaskan art. Her art has been published in international juried art annuals for imaginative realism and featured in galleries across the state.
In addition to The Dean Gallery, you can find her work locally at both Ptarmigan Arts on Pioneer Avenue and at High Tides Art on the Homer Spit.
You can find her work online as well.
Winter Hours are by appointment. Check back in spring for summer hours.
We’re open for Homer First Friday each month with artist receptions from 5-9 pm. Hours for downtown Homer galleries are from 5-7, so there is plenty of time to visit us after you’ve made the rounds in town.
We are always open by appointment, so give us a call if another time works best for you. We are here in the art studio most of the time and will be happy to show you the gallery.
