Sammamish Arts Fair is Oct. 12-13
October 8, 2013
The seventh annual Sammamish Arts Fair is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 12-13 at Sammamish City Hall and Library, 801 228th Ave. S.E., Sammamish.
The free Sammamish Arts Fair features some of the best jury-selected local artists, including 17 from Sammamish.
Visit with the artists, see their work and learn about their creative process. Original works of fine art available for purchase includes paintings, jewelry, mixed media, encaustic art, glass arts, ceramics, printmaking, woodcarving, photography and textiles.
This year features, in addition to 10 artists in the Student Booth, a program of Arts Encounters in the library, which includes performance artists, hands-on family arts activities and projects.
Linking the library and City Hall will be an Artists Interactive Walkway Project. Artists will each put together a musical device that visitors can “clatter and bang” their way along the path. This project will be made from recycled/repurposed metal objects. There will be a bucket of cooking utensils at each end to use as a banging stick. Visitors can then vote for their favorite piece. Bellevue Art Museum has donated a family membership for the artist with the most votes.
