Go See Some Art!
Summer is the time of art festivals. This summer, I have pieces hanging in three juried art festivals here in the Puget Sound region. So, if you happen to be in the region, and want to see some good art, visit one of these festivals.
Kent Summer Art Exhibit – features painting, photography, pencil drawings, mixed media, and other 2-dimensional art. The exhibit opened yesterday and runs through August 26th. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (closed holidays). The exhibit is held at the Centennial Center Gallery, 400 W Gowe St, Kent, Washington. My piece “Waiting for Spring”, a photograph printed on canvas, will be on display.
Edmonds Art Festival – art at this festival includes painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, fiber arts, jewelry, pottery, and more. It is held Father’s Day weekend, June 17 – 19th at the Frances Anderson Cultural Center, 700 Main Street, Edmonds, Washington. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the 17th, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the 18th, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the 19th. In addition to the art work, this festival includes performing arts, children’s activities, music, storytelling, a wine bar and bistro, and a food court. I have two pieces in this show: “Night Maple”, a photograph printed on canvas, and “Wedge and Cone”, a framed photographic print.
GigFest Maritime Art Exhibition – includes maritime-themed paintings, photography, and sculpture (think ships in a bottle). The exhibition is currently running a the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor, Washington and ends July 3rd. The museum is at 4121 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor.
