In the month of March, Gallery North has long enjoyed the tradition of hosting a juried exhibition of small artwork (less than 154 square inches) in all paint and drawing media. This March we are thrilled to once again host this unique show as part of the Edmonds creative district.
Our call for artists resulted in a rich trove of varied work of high quality, from landscapes to florals to still life, animal subjects, abstracts, and much more. Our gallery’s jurors whittled these down to over 128 pieces of a unique and outstanding character, coming from Washington and many other states, which will grace much of the forward portion of our display space.
The show runs from March 1st through the 31st. An artists’ reception and awards ceremony will take place at the gallery on March 11th from 1-4 pm. The public can also meet some of the artists at Edmonds’ third Thursday Art Walk on March 16th from 5-8 pm.
