Overview

Authentic Alaskan Native and made in Alaska artwork (over 200 Alaskan artists)! We are dedicated to promoting Alaskan art- carvings, masks, baskets, jewelry, and alaskan made gifts. The gallery is located inside a hand built historic log house, downtown Fairbanks- walking distance from most hotels. The ALaska House was hand built in the early 1930's and has been owned by the Fejes family since 1963. Beautifully maintained inside and out~ are garden is spectacular in the summer!
