Washougal Virtual Art Festival
August 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, repeating indefinitely
Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance will host an online art festival as an alternative to its annual August event cancelled due to COVID-19 public gathering restrictions. It will last the entire month of August. To “attend” the festival, visit washougalarts.org, www.facebook.com/WashougalArts or www.instagram.com/washougal_arts.
The goal of the art festivals is to create exposure and drive sales for local and regional artists, who have pushed themselves to create exclusive videos, new and refreshed websites and more to help promote their art in a new way online. The event will highlight the work of 25 artists, each selected to participate by a jury of art professionals.
This year’s artists are Linda Andrews-Riggs, watercolor; Eric Berlin, porcelain jewelry; Shirley Bishop, fused glass; Jean Blatner, watercolor acrylic; India de Landa, plexiglass acrylic jewelry; Chrissie Forbes, found art and oils, Katy Fenley, silver jewelry; Kyla Rae Friedrichsmeyer, watercolor and ink; Anni Furniss, mixed media; John Furniss, woodworking; Suzanne Grover, pen and colored pencil; Charlene Hale, fused glass; Kellie Kuter, mixed media; Brenda Lindstrom, oil; Beck Lipp, woodworking; Toni McCarthy, jewelry; Diane Moeglein, fused glass; Liz Pike, oil on canvas; Spike Palmer, oil painting; Karen Reule, silver jewelry; Gary Suda and Pamela Hancock, ceramics; Tamra Sheline, watercolor on Yupo; Hiroko Stumpf, watercolor and acrylic; Cyndee Starr, mixed media; Barbara Wright, water color, ink and pencil; Jeff Wirth, photography; and Tom West, acrylic and stationery.
Each year a local artist is selected to create an image for the event poster that reflects Washougal in some way. This year’s poster art of a deer among tall grass was drawn by Washougal artis, Suzanne Grover, a founding member of Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance whose work will be a part of the virtual festival. Her beautiful spring meadow scene was created from the photography of John Rakestraw. Signed posters are available for a $20 donation. There is a limited number of signed posters from previous festivals available as well, which can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
