Holiday Art Sale
2124 31st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144
I'll be participating in a holiday art sale with a fabulous group of women friends. We all do encaustic artwork and we met through workshops at Northwest Encaustic. It will be a nice Sunday afternoon with homemade holiday snacks and drinks including hot mulled alcohol. We'll all have small work available for under $200. Even if you're not shopping, come stop by to say hi and be neighborly - the event is hosted at the home of one of our members in the Mount Baker neighborhood (just south of I90) of Seattle. The other artists are Brynn Blanchard, Angela Kelly, Eliaichi Kimaro, Sean Phelan, and Ellen Zrimsek. We hope you can come and help us celebrate the season! Get a jump on holiday gift giving, or deck your own halls.
