Art in Everett?





Last week I visited Everett for the first time in many years.
The reason: SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) now included a movies from the festival being screened in Performing. Arts Center. In case you were wondering, I saw Amaldovore, a poignant and unexpected story with a few twists that make these movies so inspiring for me.
Being a good islander, my day was filled, and I arrived a while before the movie.
When in doubt, or curious about a community I seek out galleries and art centers.
Imagine my delight to discover the brand spanking new Schack Art Center.( The space is large housing a complete glass blowing , classroom space and exhibition space.
All of this is located under a loft/live/work space.
Pretty fabulous with a full complement of classes for artists of all ages, and an open and airy gallery/gift/sales area.
I look forward to seeing another exhibition there, as the inagrual show was curated with Traver Gallery from Seattle.

The other place I found was a coffe shop named after the mascot dog, zippy……Cafe Zippy was a treat both the dog and the coffee.

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
