Collection of the Anchorage Museum, Rasmuson Foundation Art Acquisition Fund, 2008.20.4
Fairbanks artist Kathryn Mallory created this painting based on visits she made to villages on the Seward Peninsula. The composition emphasizes the clothesline in the foreground, while the butchering activity occurs in the distance. The bright crimson blood from the meat echoes the colors of the hanging laundry.
