Issaquah nonprofit artEAST settles in at the historic Lewis Hardware space Saturday, and the public can stop by to tour the gallery.

The free open house runs from noon to 5 p.m. at the former hardware store, 95 Front St. S. Attendees can see art exhibits and art demonstrations, join guided figure drawing sessions, meet local artists, and learn about upcoming art classes and workshops.

The center — 3,250 square feet in downtown Issaquah — represents a substantial investment for the local arts community. Besides Issaquah, artEAST has about 80 members from across the Eastside, including Maple Valley and North Bend.

The arts center is also due to serve as a hub during ArtWalk events during the spring and summer months. ArtWalk returns in May.
