The Mount Vernon Downtown Association (MVDA) presents the First Thursday Art Walk on October 1, featuring artist Jennifer Bowman at the Front Gallery, 420 Myrtle. Jennifer is an award winning Puget Sound artist who has been exhibiting professionally for 25 years. You can find her work in private, public, and corporate collections, both nationally and internationally. During her career, she has moved from watercolors to acrylics and is occasionally experimenting in oils. Most of her work can be described as bright, bold and exciting to experience. As a teacher, she has inspired hundreds of students with her enthusiasm and kinetic energy.
The MVDA is also pleased to welcome the Chuckanut District Garden Clubs presenting a juried flower show with the theme “Let The Celebrations Begin!” at 307 S. 1st. The First Thursday Art Walks in Mount Vernon include more than 20 downtown venues, each hosting work by one or more local and regional artists.
On the first weekend of each month from April-October, the Skagit Valley Art Escape invites out-of-area visitors to spend the weekend experiencing art activities in the Skagit Valley communities of Mount Vernon, Anacortes, Edison, and La Conner. Visitors and locals alike will be delighted with gallery art walks, art installations behind glass, and artist demonstrations encompassing a broad range of media.
