Living on the water, it’s hard not to be inspired. The Artists of Issaquah show, founded in 2003, nurtured both pre-professional and established artists, celebrated creative expression, and aimed to develop the artist within all of us.

After a five-year hiatus, the celebration of artists in our floating community has been reborn as Artists@Issaquah. The art show and sale will be Saturday, Sept. 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free; donations will be collected for art programs in schools.

Call for Artists

Organizers are looking for artists, especially those who may not have shown their work in a previous Artists of Issaquah or who may not even (yet) consider themselves artists. All media (paint, photography, glass, sculpture, pottery, etc.) are accepted. Artists must currently live along the waterfront or anchor out (you do not need to be a resident of Issaquah). Email with your name, where you live, and your medium by May 21.

“Fifteen years ago, Jim Woessner founded this wonderful event, which was my first introduction to the community,” says John Schlag, who is leading the 2018 revival. “Once we became homeowners, it was the first thing I wanted to do—to open our home to artists and the people who love art.”
