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.

  2. Thanks Tom. I didn’t realize there were all basically at the same time when I put in my entries. Nice to have at least one piece picked for each show.
