In our 3rd year, we are opening up the Art in Bloom Fine Art Exhibition to all regional artists. This show will be a special event of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in April, and runs on April 15 – 23. It’s housed in the beautiful Depot Art Center historic train station in Anacortes. Jurying the show will be the Festival Curatorial Team consisting of arts professionals, gallery owners and artists. There is no theme (entries do not need to relate to flowers). Please consider entering! CaFE Link
The Festival is stepping-up its Tulip Festival activities in 2016, with 10 days of art related, fun-packed events
Art in Bloom Fine Art Exhibition – April 15 – 23. This event features 20 – 25 regional fine artists working in both 2D and 3D. It Opens on April 15th with a free event including wine, nibbles and a chance to meet the artists.
An Evening of Color – April 16 – This is our annual auction event that funds youth arts education for Anacortes school children. It includes food, spirits, and art related experiences and auction items.
NEW Art of Shopping – Join us for this sip, savor and shop event geared towards women and things that they love.
Do the Bloom – 5k Color Run – This is a fun run suitable for all ages. Participants get “colored” with bright powder at multiple course locations.
As winter comes, it is easy to not want to leave your house, or your couch for that matter! We have an idea to keep you on track: Register for the 2016 Do the Bloom Color Run. If you have a goal of running the 5K on April 23, you might be more likely to stay active this winter!
We had such a great time last April and are certain that getting dusted in color, while being active, should be high on your “fun things to experience in 2016” list! You can consider Do the Bloom a public service for you AND our community since the proceeds go toward public art projects in Anacortes!
Go ahead and commit to this run, take a step toward a healthy, colorful you!
