Video: MacNaughton portrays the seldom seen

On Friday, Juneau artist MK MacNaughton is hanging portrait number 26 of her project “Grit.” MacNaughton hung the first portrait in early January and says she picks her subjects not for how they look, but for what they do. So far, she’s drawn and hung portraits of electricians, fishermen, firefighters, bus drivers, heavy equipment operators, carpenters and more.

Portrait number 26 of 52 goes up at 4:30 on Friday at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center. It’s of chef and restaurant owner Beau Schooler.
