About Our Auction
Welcome to BAFCO Black Beer Release and ArtBid!
This is a Final Friday Art Show with original pieces from Jody Barton and Bayley Barton at BAFCO and a couple guest artists.
GW Bell was born on an Alaskan island where he encountered a visually rich environment. This environment included a vast array of Flora and fauna as well as a vibrant Native culture. Killer Whales, Sea Lions, and salmon defined the sea. Eagles defined the sky and Bear and moss shrouded the forest. First hand observations of these biological wonders remain an impetus for his designs.

Paintings built on canvas of artifacts, used and discarded build a new story for each piece adding to the dialogue of the images like a murder mystery built into art. The images are sewn in, ofter with layers of text, spray paint, ink, charcoal, graphite and acrylic paint, weaving in and out of each other like the repurposed socks of a sock monkey. the methods are tweaked like the dials of a ham radio, but the overall style pours consistently. Countless paintings float around Anchorage and the North West in city collections, small time collectors and the architects of our social environment ebbing from commissions, cafe shows and prominent art galleries. With 13 years worth of production, the shows travel in waves, rolling the sea floor of Anchorage as writers, producers and editors document the shows.
Here at BAFCO we make original pieces of art, no two are the same and custom orders take a lot longer. If you love one of our pieces bid on it before it's gone forever.
