Kenmore Art Show will feature nearly 300 regional artists

The 18th annual Kenmore Art Show run from June 22-26 at Bastyr University and will feature the works of nearly 300 regional artists.

The 18th annual Kenmore Art Show run from June 22-26 at Bastyr University and will feature the works of nearly 300 regional artists.

Sarah Solum Hayashi is the show’s curator, and said this year’s event is shaping up to be a great one.

“It’s an impressive show,” she said. “I love curating everything, very impressive.”

The show kicks off at 5 p.m. on June 22 with an award ceremony where different pieces are adjudicated for a handful of cash and ribbon awards.

The Inglemoor High School jazz combo will be providing music, and patrons have an opportunity to meet the artists.

Art is divided into general painting and drawing, sculpture, photography, miniature and artisan works categories ranging from traditional to abstract and non-conforming pieces. There are also youth divisions in each of the categories.

Historically, artists have come from as far away as Port Orchard, Tacoma and Leavenworth.

“They come from all over,” Hayashi said. “It’s really quite spectacular.”

Saturday, June 25 will be the flagship day, with live music and a slew of food trucks flooding the campus located off Juanita Drive Northeast in St. Edward State Park. A flamenco-inspired program with dancers Savannah Fuentes and Veronica Barrera, accompanied by guitarist Jed Miley will also take place on June 25.

The show began in 1998 after local teacher Florence Lindstrom and her husband, Roland, started it.

Florence Lindstrom recently passed away, but her husband will be at the event to present the ‘Best in Show’ award.

This year’s event marks the fifth year it has been held at Bastyr University after outgrowing its previous location at the Northlake Luthren Church in Kenmore.
