Mukilteo’s Waterfront Art Festival is Friday in new home at Rosehill

Start Labor Day weekend with a trip to Mukilteo.

The Rosehill Community Center is the new home of the annual Waterfront Art Festival, sponsored by the city of Mukilteo and the Mukilteo Arts Guild.

The one-day free festival, dedicated to promoting excellence in the arts, is set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, at the center, 304 Lincoln Ave. The center has beautiful views of Puget Sound and the ferry crossing to Kingston.

Art lovers and collectors from around the region are expected to attend, organizers said.

The festival, now in its seventh year, includes a juried exhibition, artist demonstrations, live entertainment, activities for children and festival food.

Proceeds from sales of paintings, glass, jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, wearable art, pottery and photography will benefit the Arts Guild Student Scholarship Fund.

Dimitry Gritsenko, a former recipient of the guild’s scholarship, is the festival’s poster artist this year. The image is of the ferry crossing the water.
