Cool art on sale near the Schack in Everett
Great deals are available on seconds from well-known local artists such as glassmaker Merrilee Moore, painter Josey Wise and jeweler Mary Freiburger.
Perhaps you've admired prints by Daniel Cautrell or garden art by Peter Godwin or mosaic mirrors by Stephanie and Hector Olvera or pottery by Steve Dalton. They will all be there, trying to clear their shelves of old pieces. You take those works off their hands and make out like an art bandit.
More than 100 artists participate in the garage sale, selling seconds and art supplies, along with new stock as well, including watercolors, oils, photography, pastels, mixed media and fiber arts such as scarves and hats.
Like any garage sale, there are early birds who arrive first in search of the best deals but the quality and quantity of the art lasts all day.
"Loyal customers are always lined up at the door early, eagerly waiting to find treasures," said ceramic artist Gina Holt, who has been participating in the garage sale for more than 10 years. "I also find beautiful, unusual items at this show so can understand the amazing following this show has generated."
Holt said she enjoys the atmosphere, which she calls "fast, furious and fun."
The Artists' Garage Sale runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, in the 2900 block of Hoyt Avenue, including Schack Art Center, 2921 Hoyt Ave.
The garage sale is free and is open rain or shine.
