The Mountlake Terrace Friends of the Arts recently was awarded an $11,000 grant from the Hazel Miller Foundation to purchase new art exhibit panels.
The new exhibit panels will replace the old white panels used for the past 25 years for the Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show. The exhibit panels will also provide more space to add children’s art to the annual show.
The 36th Annual Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show is set for Saturday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue West. Sponsored by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission and the Friends of the Arts, Arts of the Terrace is one of the major juried art shows held in the Pacific Northwest and attracts top artists from throughout the region.
The Hazel Miller Charitable Trust Foundation was established in 2009 as a means for charitable giving to benefit the City of Edmonds and South Snohomish County. Their mission is “Dedicated to the citizens of Edmonds and South Snohomish County through grants to programs and projects that serve the public’s benefit, especially in the areas of education and youth services, poverty alleviation and hunger, civic and community services and amenities, the environment, and culture and the arts.”
Mountlake Terrace Friends of the Arts along with the Arts Advisory Commission strives to nurture, support, and promote cultural arts as a vital element of the community’s quality of life, economic viability and vibrant community identity.
The Friends of the Arts and the Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission hope to provide free art classes for children at the library, art related guest speakers, Concerts in the Parks, acting workshops, and photography classes as future events for the community.
