CHINOOK - The 4th Annual Chinook Arts Festival will be up and running Aug. 30, 31 and Sept. 1 at Olympia Street and Highway 101 in Chinook.
This festival will feature juried handcrafted art, such as stained glass, pottery, oil paintings, watercolors, jewelry, fused glass, blown glass, prints, mixed media, wood sculptures and more.
Demonstrations of glass torchwork will be given by Blazin' Glass of Kelso and Blowing Bubbles Glass of Westport. Pat Brame will give a pot-throwing demonstration on his pottery wheel. For a small fee, Brame can help you throw your own pot on the wheel!
Other featured vendors include Fernhill Glass of Astoria with blown glass, Ron and Mona Nolden of Kelso with stained and fused glass and wood sculptures, Carol Johnson's watercolors and prints, A Spirit Within, and Inspirations Glass of Chinook. Stop in to find unique, quality art, ranging in prices as low as $5 to $1,200.
"It's a great place to find really high quality art and to take in the wonderful outdoor atmosphere," says festival organizer Debbie Patana. "It's not your typical arts and crafts, these are high quality."
John Wubben's "Women of the Sea," a book celebrating women's seafaring occupations, will also be for sale.
Candice Hoisington and Sunrise Fletcher will perform live music on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Festival hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday.
