Edmonds Sculptor’s Workshop presents Art Deco exhibit starting July 8

For the upcoming exhibit by Sculptor’s Workshop, the Art Deco-inspired building façade is a collaborative effort. Pieces included here are by Leon White, Janet Still and Robert Dionne.

The Edmonds Arts Festival Museum will exhibit the work of the Sculptor’s Workshop Friday, July 8 through Wednesday August 3. The Sculptor’s Workshop presents its interpretation of Art Deco, the decorative design concepts originating in the 1920s: repeating geometric elements and curves, streamlined industrial design, “Flapper” clothing and jewelry, elongated, stylized, graceful figures, animals and plant life, bold posters, and architecture. The main idea is bold, strong design.

On Third Thursday, July 21, come and meet the artists at their reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The Sculptor’s Workshop has created an Art Deco-inspired building façade collaboration as well as individual figures, enlarged jewelry design, and architectural elements, all made with individual artist’s spirit and zeal. Artwork is primarily made of clay.

Artists include Kathleen Dawe, Robert Dionne, Colleen Duran, Michiko Euling, Lennéa Gandee, Denise Heekin, Kristiana Johnson, Terry Sonmore, Patty Steele-Smith, Janet Still, Masako Thrower, and Leon White.

The Edmonds Arts Festival Museum gallery is located in the Frances Anderson Center, main entrance, 700 Main St. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. For information, call 425-771-0228 or visit www.eaffoundation.org to see the museum schedule and learn more about the programs of the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation.
