“Beautiful Local Art.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The clerk/artist was very enthusiastic about all the art shown. Each artist was very different from the next.

“Best Art in AK”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

My wife and I recently honeymooned in the Alaska mainland and traveled fairly extensively during our 11 day trip from Anchorage to Denali, Talkeetna, Seward, Coopers Landing and finally Homer. Having seen a lot of the art/gift shops along the way we had been exposed to most all of the tourist trap art and although we appreciated some of various handmade crafts we were not ultimately impressed with the artistic qualities of what we had seen. Upon arriving at "the end of the road" in Homer, Ptarmigan Arts completely blew us away and we didn't see it coming. The quality and variety of the artwork is outstanding, and it truly speaks to the nature of the region. We ended up buying more than we probably should have, but we are in love with what we got. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to see real Alaskan artwork.

“Wonderful Art Co-Op!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The local artists who show their work at this Co-op are first rate! The store is well laid out - a calm, peaceful place to look at some very professional artwork. No pressure to buy. Go in and enjoy both shopping and/or appreciating.
