The 37th annual Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show opens on Saturday, Sept. 26 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 11 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W.
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.
This year’s jurors include DeAnne Lemley for Paintings, Prints, Drawings and Miniatures; Mark Bergsma for photography and Lin McJunkin for 3-Dimensional and Artisans’ Works. Last year’s show incorporated nearly 180 artists submitting over 370 art entries, which marked the highest number of artists and art entries in the show’s history.
As a juried art show, artists compete for more than $4,000 in cash awards and art merchandise and the quality and caliber of art submissions has increased the competition for being accepted into the show. Artists from as far away as Arkansas, British Columbia, Ellensburg and Bellingham have entered the show, thus increasing its notoriety as not only a regional but now a national and international show.
The show is free and open to the public Monday through Thursday, noon to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 4, 1-5 p.m. and closing day of Oct. 11 from 1-3 p.m.
