There are 10,000 foster children in Washington State. This fall, Windermere Mount Baker, the Rainier Chamber of Commerce and Go: South Seattle are co-hosting a children’s art exhibition to benefit Treehouse, an amazing organization dedicated to supporting foster families.
YOUR pre-school through high school artists are invited to exhibit their artworks! Collaborative works by siblings or classmates are welcome. The general theme is anything that symbolizes love.
As of Thanksgiving we have received 103 paintings, drawings, encaustic works, collages… which you can see here! Last minute submissions will be accepted until Friday, December 1 at Windermere Mount Baker (4919 South Genesee Street, Seattle). Our curators, including Betsy Fetherston of Columbia City Gallery, renowned illustrator Elizabeth Rose Stanton, children’s author Philomena O’Neill, and Windermere Realtor Susan Cole, a former Seattle Art Museum photographer, will vote on winners for Best Use of Red, Most Creative Medium and other fun prizes!
On Wednesday, December 6, you’re invited to an art reception and auction at the Windermere Mount Baker. The event is free and there will be wine and holiday treats! All proceeds will go to Treehouse to provide holiday gifts for foster children. Please join us from 5:30-8:30pm!
Windermere Mount Baker’s most recent gallery exhibition featured 13-year-old graffiti artist Alec Goodwin, who sold his entire collection at his September 22 reception! A big thanks to Alec for contributing two works for the Treehouse auction!
