The illustration for our 2015 festival poster, shown here, was created by Raven Shipley, a senior at Gig Harbor High School. The illustration will be used on all our festival promotional materials and signed copies of the poster will be for sale at the festival.
Many thanks to Key Bank for their continued support and for allowing us to present our Members' Summer Art Exhibition in their branch and to The Lodge at Mallard's Landing for providing refreshments for the Show. Thanks, also, to the City of Gig Harbor for their ongoing support.
In 2012 & 2013 the Gig Harbor Summer Art Festival was voted Best Festival in the Region by readers of South Sound Magazine.
Proceeds from the Art Festival provide art scholarships for local students and PAL members. Proceeds are also shared with the Gig Harbor community and out-of-town visitors through our art shows, exhibitions and educational programs.
Our high school scholarship winners for 2014 were Rachael Brunson and Olivia Fillingham from Peninsula High School; Heather Ohlson and Amie Sabin from Gig Harbor High School and Elizabeth Wolfsen from South Kitsap. A primary requirement of our scholarships is that recipients must continue their art studies beyond high school. Congratulations to these aspiring artists!
