There are 10,000 foster children in Washington State.
This fall, my office, Windermere Mount Baker, GO: South Seattle (of which I am a proud member) and the Rainier Chamber of Commerce are co-hosting a children’s art exhibition to benefit Treehouse, an amazing organization dedicated to supporting foster families.
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.
The art submission deadline is 5pm on Friday, November 3. 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 then vote on their favorites. We will request your selected works for exhibition in mid-November.
On Wednesday, December 6, you’re invited to an art reception and auction at the Windermere Mount Baker gallery (4919 S Genesee Street, Seattle). All proceeds will go to Treehouse to provide holiday gifts for foster children.
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!
