Big thanks

Thanks to gallery art jurors, the many volunteers, and sponsors who make the Edmonds Arts Festival happen. It seems an arduous task, and it’s been held for over 60 years! The event is a fundraiser for the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, which is committed to promoting education and enriching the community through the arts. They foster artistic growth and cultural engagement by supporting scholarships, offering grants, and creating exhibition opportunities. Edmonds, WA, is a charming town with unique attractions like the ferry terminal to Kingston/North Kitsap and a scuba diving park! The downtown area is Washington’s first Certified Creative District. So kudos to all those working to make Edmonds a vibrant, art-friendly community. I’m lucky it’s just a short drive and ferry ride from where I live, Indianola.
