I never leave empty handed, which means the items are unique and the prices are fair. The gallery is staffed by the artists themselves and I... More

I really liked the variety and friendly staff. The price range of items was also good with some fun and inexpensive items as well as larger and consequently more expensive pieces.

Enjoyed many of the pieces. The clerk was well versed in the meanings and history of the more unusual natural pieces.

Quality unique merchandise. Beautifully displayed. Alaskan artists. You won't find T-shirts here. This is the type of shop I look for.

An artist run co-op that has wonderful art work at reasonable prices. Jewelry, pottery, hand turned wooden bowls and vases, woven scarves, paintings and prints for your perusal. The actual artists work there and you can even watch them make their artwork. I found and purchased beautiful jewelry and a wonderful print of otters for family members. Well worth opening... More

Lots of local artisans all in one place. I bought a bunch of handcrafted woodwork and souvenirs, best shopping of our trip. Check it out (and the store next door too)!

This is the second time I have visited Ptarmigan Arts in Homer. It presents excellent variety of art with helpful service. I found unique and reasonable gifts, as well as two paintings. I strongly recommend a visit.
