The Edmonds Mural Society’s third mural for summer 2011 — Edmonds To Starboard, by Edmonds artist Joel Patience — has been completed. It can be found on the wall facing 4th Avenue at 401 Main St.
The theme for this year’s murals, as voted upon by society members, is “Hidden Treasures of Edmonds,” with an emphasis on Edmonds’ natural beauty.
The first mural, “Flying Heron,” by Edmonds artist Sue Coccia, features a heron flying in the sky. Inside the body of the heron are images of flora and fauna found within the Edmonds Marsh. This mural is located behind Housewares at 318 Main St., facing 4th Avenue.
The second mural, “The Brothers,” painted by Edmonds muralist Andy Eccleshall, features a stunning view of the Olympic Mountain Range peak called The Brothers, as the clouds part at the end of a dreary day and the sun catches that snow-covered peak. It can be found in the alley beside The Papery at 410 Main St
Two more murals are scheduled for this summer. Starting Aug. 10, a mural featuring our underwater sanctuary begins on the wall of the Waterfront Coffee Shop at 101 Main St. More information about the murals can be found online at www.EdmondsMuralSociety.org. You can become a member there, or at 409 Main St. Call 425-776-3778 for more information.
