2022 Alki Art Fair / July 23-24, 2022
Director's Update - July, 2021
Musings and Ramblings from the Alki Art Fair
First of all, a huge thank you to all of the artists from throughout the region who contribute so much every year to the Alki Art Fair, making it a 'must attend' event for those seeking high quality artwork and an opportunity to meet the artists whose work is being presented.
Cancelling the 2021 was a very hard decision.
However, when faced with Seattle's 90 day permit process, having to agree at that 90 day mark to health protocols far beyond what an event of our size could afford and being unable to assure our artist community who must schedule their summer well in advance that the event was even to take place, we had no choice but to cancel.
Now the work on fall, winter and spring events - as well as planning for the 2022 Fair has begun and we invite you to join us!
- We intend to produce a number of smaller art events throughout the autumn, winter and spring to bring artists together with the community in smaller, more intimate settings.
- The ideal location on private property in West Seattle for these events is being actively sought. The Alki Art Fair would like to partner with a business or individual having a suitable space. If you know of such a space, please let me know.
- Updates will continue to be posted at alkiartfair.org and by email to keep you up to date as these options progress.
- Applications for the 2022 Fair, tentatively scheduled for July 23-24, will open in December.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
On another subject, the Alki Art Fair continues to seek a new member for the Board of Directors – ideally a working artist who can bring that perspective to the Board.
The Board is all volunteer.
The time commitment will vary throughout the year but will include monthly meetings held in West Seattle, though currently held virtually on Zoom.
The Board member representing the artist community has zero obligations before, during, or immediately after the event, as that person is generally in their booth.
If you are interested in working with a great group of people, please contact me directly or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be introduced to the current Board, discuss everything in more detail and initiate the process.
