Things to do in Ketchikan, Alaska (AK): The Best Art Galleries

May 16, 2022 Cedrick Jardin

Ketchikan, one of Alaska's most Southeastern cities, is the first stop for many cruises on their way to more Northern climes. A stay in Ketchikan itself can be rewarding, however, as the city is the gateway to Misty Fjords National Monument, an area so beautiful, it is known as "The Yosemite of the North." With steep valleys formed by glaciers and lava flows left by volcanic activity, Misty Fjords offers gorgeous views of natural formations, all reflected in the calm waters of Pacific inlets.

The Point

The Point is a destination. It is an Art Cafe. It's an art gallery, coffee and tea shop and they serve lunch. All lunches are homemade from scratch, daily. Incredible waterfront views. See bald eagles, harbor seals, and occasionally even whales appear. Watch float planes take off and land close by as ships and fishing boats cruise the busy harbor. Free Wifi for customers. Open all week.

I lived in Ketchikan as a travel nurse for a year several years ago. Terry Pyles and his wife are local artists and have a wonderful array of beautiful beads and unique yarns. Terry’s art is on display and are a must have for the art collector. It’s a wonderful gathering place where you can get to know interesting locals and even take crafting classes. The food is marvelous.

The Soho Coho

Ray and Michelle Troll opened the Soho Coho art gallery in 1992. It's appropriately situated above a salmon spawning stream in K-town's notorious former red light district. The Star Building was the biggest house-of-ill-repute on the street and featured a hardwood dance floor with a large inlaid star. The original star is still there today! Once upon a time it housed a rouwdy dance hall run by the likes of "sporting women" known as Black mary and Thelman Baker. Now it showcases the artwork of Ketchikan artists Ray Troll, Evon Zerbetz, Chip Porter, Hall Anderson, Lizzie O, and more. You'll find an ecclectic mix of originals, prints, t-shirts, books, fossils, and unique gifts at the Soho Coho where our moto is "Better living through difficult art!"

Great local wares. A lot of art. Worth the visit if you can coordinate open times. The price is right for local art, jewelry, notecards, and sweats/T-shirt's.

Reviewed By KathyF1252 - Perth Hills, Australia

We visited whilst on a cruise stopover and were looking for items made in Alaska/USA and were authentic instead of mass produced souvenirs - so we were so happy to have found Soaring Eagle store. So many interesting items which I would loved to have purchased but Perth Australia is a long way away! We settled on a wonderful Eagle inlaid pendant made by Calvin Begay and I chose a Sleeping Beauty Turquoise bead. We are so thrilled with our purchases and the staff were very helpful and interesting. Thanks from Australia!
