38th Art's Alive! opens Friday with gala
November 9, 2022
Art's Alive! opens Friday with a 5 p.m. gala in Maple Hall, just like in the old days, pre-coronavirus pandemic. This year's fitting theme is "Peace and Solidarity."
The 12 chosen to exhibit are a mix of local and regional artists. Many will be familiar with the works of Tracy Powell, Maggie Wilder, Nancy Crowell, Alfred Currier and Anne Schreivogl. Peter Boome, Ria Harboe, Amy Ferron, Janie Olsen, Janice Wall, Barbara Noonan, and Lynn Zimmerman round out the group.
The second floor open show exhibits the work of some 60 area artists.
Doors open to the public Friday at 1 p.m. so COVID-19-hesitant people may enjoy the show without crowds. Hall hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday.
Art's Alive! is managed by La Conner Arts Foundation under a contract with the Town of La Conner, using funds from hotel-motel tax revenues.
