Arts patrons still have the opportunity to view the works of local artists now through Saturday, Oct. 6 at the 29th annual Arts of the Terrace show at Mountlake Terrace’s Library Complex.

This year’s Arts of the Terrace art show is not only a celebration of the arts, it is a celebration of the lives of Sharron Berwick and Joyce Hagen, two Mountlake Terrace art advocates who in their lifetimes established a legacy of a community rich with art.

Berwick died Feb. 19, 2007 after an extended illness. Hagen passed away Dec. 10, 2006. Both women took their turns serving as chairperson of the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission.

Hagen’s paintings will remain on exhibit in the Mountlake Terrace Library throughout the month of October, along with photos and biographies for both Berwick and Hagen.

Co-sponsored by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission and Friends of the Arts, this year’s show features four categories of artwork, including paintings, prints and drawings, photography, 3-dimensional art and calligraphy.

This year’s jurors are Denise Cole, local award-winning artist and owner of the Cole Gallery in Edmonds, who will oversee the Paintings, Prints, Drawings and Miniatures category; Gary Hamburgh of the Park Lane Gallery in Kirkland for Photography; Sam Scott, Art Instructor at Shoreline Community College and local functional potter for the 3-Dimensional category; and Bridgette Hefferan, calligraphy teacher at the Frances Anderson Center for calligraphy.

At a special artists and patrons preview Sept. 28, awards were given in the four general categories, along with ribbons for honorable mentions and a “Best of Show” honor selected by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission. Visitors to the show still have an opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award and Children’s Choice Award; winners will be selected Saturday, Oct. 7 by popular vote of public viewing and presented at the conclusion of the art show.

All artwork is for sale, and a percentage of the profits benefit the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission.
