Shoppers will find pottery, glassware, underwater photography, original art on ceramic tile, Northwest-inspired wood carving, handmade gift cards, a wide variety of women’s accessories, party favors for your holiday table, Mukilteo Chocolates — the perfect stocking stuffer — and a favorite, Kettle Pop popcorn.
Artist Connect is a group of artists from the area who network and share resources and upcoming events. As creatives, they process and build the art they love. Inspiration is all around in this spectacular region of the country and this creative community. Members share their wisdom and process where new members share and bring new ideas.
All are welcome to attend one of the meetings and see what they are about. Even if you are thinking about beginning on a new creative path, come in and be inspired. There is no membership fee, parking is free and the group meets every fourth Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon in the Artworks building at 201 2nd Ave. S. They offer a variety of classes, open studios and art shows.
