Summerfest 2006 – Kirkland Waterfront

“This July Kirkland Arts Center’s Summerfest 2006: art and wine on the waterfront will once again connect the community with quality art and artists from across the region. More than 120 juried artists will exhibit, demonstrate and sell artwork in clay, glass, wood, painting, photography and jewelry. Kirkland Avenue will be devoted to demonstrating artists and Artists in Action, with sparks flying as festival goers try fiery raku-style ceramics and glass fusing.

KAC’s Artist-in-Action booths give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at artmaking, as well as the chance to explore their own artistry.
“Summerfest is about more than just presenting work by regional artists in a beautiful outdoor setting — it is an opportunity for the community to experiment, learn and interact with art,” notes Quinn Elliott, KAC’s Executive Director.”
