MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Artists from as far away as Arkansas, British Columbia and Ellensburg are among those showing work in the 36th annual Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show, making it not only a regional show, but now a national and international show as well.
The art show is displayed Sept. 27 through Oct. 5 at the Mountlake Terrace Library (23300 58th Ave. W., Mountlake Terrace). Sponsored by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission and the Friends of the Arts, it is one of the major juried art shows in the region.
The show is free and open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 3 and 4 and 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 5.
Nearly 180 artists submitted more than 370 entries, the most in the show’s history.
Artists compete for more than $4,000 in cash awards and art merchandise. The quality of the art pieces entered has increased the competition for being accepted in the show.
Jurors accepted 267 pieces for this year’s show. Jurors were Joe MacKechnie for paintings, prints, drawings and miniatures, Mark Hopkins for photography, Aaron Haba for three-dimensional works and Jackie Van Noy for calligraphy.
