I had visited Skagway some 5 years ago and purchased a beautiful whale tail necklace at Alaska Artworks. It tarnished and I just couldn't get it shined up again. When we traveled through Skagway this year, the owner made it glow once again. I loved...More

If you're looking for souvenirs that are made locally by Alaskans, look no further. This shop in Skagway is easily found in the middle of the town, and is host to many pieces of art, paintings, jewelry and carvings, all made by Alaskans. I purchased...More

Happened to pass by after spending day in Skagway and just loved this little shop. Owner was the best, and shipped art home for me. Do not miss this gem when in Skagway!

This is a great place to get art pjeces made and conceptualized in Alaska. The paintings and prints capture the local landscape and traditions. The prices are fair and proceeds help keep alive local arts and crafts.

This is a wonderful little store that has great art and jewelry, ALL from Alaska. The owners/ workers know the artists they carry and can talk about their style. Best is they package the art to travel home without it being damaged!

I really wasn't expecting a lot when I entered this gallery. After all, all the others I'd seen in Skagway carried overpriced item geared for the cruise ship crowd. This place though, was different. Small, sure, but chocked full of Alaska art. Paintings, sculptures, woodblocks...More
