Wedgwood Art Festival starts Saturday!

July 12th, 2013 by Support Staff

“Awesome art in your neighborhood.”

That’s the motto of the Eighth Annual Wedgwood Art Festival, which runs Saturday and Sunday at the Hunter Farms Tree Lot, corner of 35th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 80th Street.

The festival is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

There’s music, food and art:

The juried art festival includes many returning favorites and many new artists primarily from NE Seattle. With a wide

variety of fine arts and crafts, there is something for everyone. Choose a new painting, print or photograph for that bare space on your wall. Pick out some jewelry for an evening out, or a new ceramic mug for your morning coffee. Add some whimsy to your garden with a new outdoor sculpture. Choose from beautiful glass, mosaics, sculpture, fiber arts and more to add to your collection.

For a full schedule of events visit the festival site.
