Dear Edmonds Community Art Show!

Last year, 89 artists created 1,047 handmade greeting cards to extend outreach during the pandemic. You might remember reading about this endeavor to get 1,000 greeting cards from Edmonds and surrounding areas. Edmonds business Create Next Steps spearheaded this event and is now using 65 of the submissions in a fundraising effort to support Edmonds Food Bank, Washington Kids in Transition and the Edmonds Waterfront Center. You can see the collection on the following dates and times at 611 Main St., Edmonds: Thursday, Sept. 16 from 5 to 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 17 from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
