I love this time of the year because there is always so much to do and see. This year I am involved in two events the same weekend and want to attend a third...
Artists' Garage Sale in Everett at the Schack Center on Saturday June, 18th, from 9:00 to 3:00pm. I will be participating this year, trying to make some room in my studio. It is a really fun event that is a combination garage sale and street fair. Lots of great art-related bargains. Artists selling art supplies and equipment that they no longer use; originial art, prints, magazines, bits and pieces - things that artists and art-lovers can appreciate all at garage sale prices. I will have a large selection of frames, framed prints, prints, and miscellaneous items. For more information: http://www.schack.org/
The Edmonds Arts Festival starts on Friday, June 17th and runs through Sunday the 19th. It is a wonderful festival, not just because it is in my home town, but because it attracts high caliber artists from around the country. There are: food and beverage booths, music and dance performances, outdoor and indoor art and craft booth, indoor juried exhibits of everything from jewelry and sculpture, to fiber and photography, to the various mediums of painting, and even K-12 artist exhibitions. This year I have two paintings in the Edmonds Arts Festival Juried Exhibition. "Baby Barn Owls" and "Love Crows." Rain or shine it is a great festival - hope you can make it. http://www.edmondsartsfestival.com/
Fremont Fair this is a very fun venue in the Fremont district in Seattle. Don't miss the "Solstice Parade" on Saturday - it is a lot of fun to see the creative floats and costumes. http://www.fremontfair.org/
