Every year Gallery North invites artists to submit their artwork to the annual Beauty of Northwest Exhibit. This juried invitational exhibit celebrates the splendor of our region. Artists were invited to present their creative interpretations of this theme. The ninth annual Beauty of the Northwest Exhibit opens October 1st at Gallery North in downtown Edmonds. This year’s show features approximately 60 works of art created by dozens of talented artists from the Pacific Northwest and nationwide. All artwork is available for purchase. The Beauty of the Northwest Exhibit is open to the public, seven days a week, through October 1st through 30.
“I always look forward to seeing Northwest-themed art through the eyes of so many different artists. They each have a story to tell!” – Jackie Gilbert, Beauty of the Northwest Exhibit Co-chair
