Kirkland Arts Center is pleased to announce that it has been selected to produce the 3rd annual Seattle Waterfront Arts Market this summer. The Market, sponsored by Seattle Parks, takes place in Seattle's beautiful Waterfront Park on Pier 57 which stretches from the Seattle Aquarium to the Great Wheel, with Pike Place Market perched above, drawing in locals and tourists alike.
Held Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from June 6th through September 14th from 10am to dusk, the Seattle Waterfront Arts Market is a venue for established and emerging area artists, designers, and craftspeople to share their handcrafted, one-of-a kind art and fine craft. In addition to artisans and crafters, there will also be creative demonstrations, music, and performances scheduled throughout the summer. Interested vendors many sign up for the whole season, by weekends, or for individual days.
"We are almost an extension of the art coming out of Pike's Place Market, but with a more scenic view of Seattle's beautiful waterfront. We are thrilled to support many area artists, designers and fine craftsman representing a variety of mediums including jewelry, fashion design, painting, glass, ceramics and more," said Pamela Rembold, Executive Director of Kirkland Arts Center. "The unique thing about this market that each and every day there is a different array of artist vendors.
"I have traveled city to city and country to country and there is little that compares to the beauty of our own Seattle waterfront, rain or shine.The quality of the art found in this setting is nothing less than spectacular and very affordable too. People come back to the show week after week bringing their friends and family to find their own one of a kind creation," said Cynthia Jones-Taylor, a jeweler and regular vendor who participates in the Seattle Waterfront Arts Market. "Seattle is known for its innovative concepts and ideas and the art at the waterfront is no exception."
