Pam Harold retiring from Edmonds Arts Commission — and someone needs to fill her shoes

Pam Harold receives a plaque from Mayor Dave Earling.

A key member of the Edmonds Arts Commission since 2004, artist Pam Harold will be retiring from the Commission at the end of December.

Harold, an avid watercolor artist, served two four-year terms as one of EAC’s visual arts representatives. Harold has been painting for 52 years – a hobby that turned into a career. She has taught painting and journal writing to both children and adults and lectured to many arts organizations in Edmonds and the Seattle area.

Harold is a former member of Edmonds’ Gallery North, an Edmonds Arts Festival Poster Artist and a current member of Women Painters of Washington and Artists Connect. She has coordinated EAC’s exhibits at the Edmonds Library for a number of years and shows her own work in galleries in Edmonds and Seattle.

By ordinance, four of the seven Arts Commissioners must be professionally engaged in the arts. The Arts Commission is seeking applicants to fill the vacancy Harold will leave at the end of the year. If you are an Edmonds resident with a passion for the arts and a willingness to volunteer your time on a working board, contact the Arts Office for an application and position description.

The application deadline has been extended to Dec. 30. Call 425-771-0228, email [email protected], or visit, where you will find copies of both documents.
