October is National Arts & Humanities month and the Carnation Farmers Market is celebrating this month with local artists and opportunities for the community to create art.
Art will be displayed on the market’s brand new arts booth, constructed by local artist and market fixture, Joe Lee Davidson. The project is sponsored by a grant to SnoValley Tilth and the Carnation Farmers Market from King County’s 4Culture. The new arts booth allows local art to be a permanent feature of the market for the entire community to enjoy in future seasons.
Each Tuesday of October, a different artist will take center stage under the arts booth. They will demonstrate their work, but also engage the community by offering hands-on opportunities for everyone to create. Supplies are provided. Upcoming media include compressed charcoal, printmaking, and watercolors. Visit the market website at carnationfarmersmarket.org to learn more.
The Carnation Farmers Market is open 3 to 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday through October 29, and features locally grown produce and delicious prepared foods, with an emphasis on organic, sustainable practices. The market is located in the heart of Carnation, at the market shelter, one block east of Highway 203 at the intersection of Stossel Avenue and Bird Street.
