Summer Arts Fest


Now in its third year, Vashon Center for the Arts is set to open its annual two-month Summer Arts Fest Friday, July 3rd. The festival will showcase artwork by more than 70 Vashon Island visual artists in 35 solo and collaborative exhibitions.

Artists opening their exhibitions July 3rd are Christopher Allen, Steven Ellis, Denise Dion, Miya Sukune, Stephen Malshuk, Robert Thomas, Renee Marceau, and Erin Schulz.

Vashon Summer Arts Fest is a festival open to any and all Vashon-based artists. Each artist is given a three-week show and a designated wall or floor space “mini-gallery” on which to display their art. One of the extraordinary features of Vashon Summer Arts Fest is the rotation of shows within the time period, with five Friday openings where you can see new art and meet the artists. Friday openings for new shows are: July 17, July 24, August 7, and August 14 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm.

VCA Gallery hours are: Thursday – Saturday from 12noon to 4:00pm.

COVID-19 protocols are in place to insure a safe and welcoming environment for art viewing. Masks are required, physical distancing will be practiced, and a the number of visitors in the gallery will be limited at any given time.

The Summer Art Fest is the ultimate celebration of Vashon artists. Within the two-month period you can experience the breadth of artistic talent on Vashon.
