As an official partner in the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, we are offering an exciting lineup of art related events at the Depot Art Center, 611 R Ave, in Anacortes for 10 days in April. Through these events we fund the Anacortes School District Cultural Arts Program and public art projects. Included are:
The 3rd annual art exhibition, April 15 – 23, will feature bodies of work from 30 regional fine artists, working in both 2D and 3D. It is juried by the Festival Curatorial Team that includes arts professionals with museum, gallery and artist backgrounds.
The Public Opening will be on Friday, April 15th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – a free evening of fine art, wine, refreshments – and an opportunity to meet the artists.
Art in Bloom is a non-themed show – deadline was January 19th.
