Edmonds Summer Art Show
Runs July 15th & 16th 10am – 5pm
At 2nd and Dayton Streets in Edmonds
Celebrating the excitement of live local art, the Edmonds-based Artists-Connect group is holding its annual ARTSplash 2023 show and sale Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16. ARTSplash runs from 10am to 5pm each day at the Artworks building at 201 Dayton Street in downtown Edmonds, WA. Located two blocks from the Edmonds ferry terminal, the free show is a great destination event this summer and parking is free.
ARTSplash 2023 features eighteen local artists. Artwork for sale includes original oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, and mixed media paintings of landscapes and abstract themes, art prints, undersea and nature photography, ceramics, mandalas, one-of-a-kind jewelry, collages, and art cards.
This is a great opportunity to come out and support local artists who are a key to the vitality of our community. The Edmonds Artists-Connect group is recognized for nurturing a wide range of arts and ability levels through monthly presentations on technique and diverse approaches to involvement in the arts. For over half of the participating artists, this will be the first time they have shown and sold their art in person.
According to David Allen, event organizer and show artist, ARTSplash is part of Edmond’s creative heart. “It’s an opportunity for people to come together in appreciation of inspired talent and beauty. And this show is linked to other important art organizations.” Each ARTSplash artist will auction a piece of art with proceeds supporting the Edmonds Art Festival Foundation’s (EAFF) educational programs. In addition, a portion of each regular sale goes to the Edmonds Art Festival’s support of Artworks – the ARTSplash venue in downtown Edmonds.
Artists-Connect Edmonds is a no-fee art group that meets the 4th Saturday of each month from 10am-12pm, at Artworks. Artists-Connect enables local artists to network, while learning techniques and resource information about diverse creative media from oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, to photography, collage, textiles, and hand-bound books. Members come from Edmonds, Kirkland, Bothell, Snohomish, Shoreline, Seattle, Everett, Mill Creek and other communities.
