AK Artist of the Year 2011–2012
Dot Bardarson is a leader in the world of Alaskan arts. She served on the Alaska State Council on the Arts for six years. Watercolor is her favorite medium. Her two current styles reflect working in the studio and in plein air.

She was recently named “Queen of Arts” by the Seward Arts Council, not only where she designed 13 sets for plays, but for acting as well, and for her leadership in making Seward the Mural Capital of Alaska.
