Attendees and collectors will find a museum-quality show of work ranging in size from large sculptures, paintings and fiber art pieces to small prints, photos and jewelry. These range in style from exquisite traditional work to provocative contemporary works and deeply personal expressions. Some of these artists are well-established professionals, and others are emerging talents in the world of art. Our state is very rich with talent.”

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
