2015 DOWNTOWN ISSAQUAH ARTWALK
Friday’s July – August – July 10 and August 7 – 6:00 – 9:00 pm
March 3, 2015 – Issaquah, WA The Downtown Issaquah Association invites artists of all types and styles to submit work to be juried for the 14th annual Downtown Issaquah ArtWalk season July-August. We welcome established and semi-professionals of the trade. These events are great exposure for your work. Issaquah is a vibrant, grassroots community with many artists, art supporters and art enthusiasts.
ArtWalk transforms the historic downtown businesses into artists’ galleries for the night. Issaquah ArtWalk is a lively, festive event with a variety of artistic styles, interactive art demonstrations, live music and dance in multiple locations throughout the historic downtown.
ArtWalk started in 2002; since then crowd participation has increased twelve-fold and the number of artists who participate has tripled. Last year, thousands of people came into downtown Issaquah to see and purchase art, hear live music and support our historic downtown throughout the season. Issaquah ArtWalk is a Friday night destination on the East Side.
SUBMISSION INFORMATION: Artists are paired with a participating downtown venue to set up inside the business using wall space, easels, tables or other display arrangements. Outside spaces are also available. The artist must be able to set up before the 6:00 start time and be present with the artwork throughout the event. The artist can have an assistant to help with the show but the artist must be present for most of the event. Unsold artwork will need to be removed at the end of the evening.
