“Uptown Stroll” – a festival of creating art

August 28th, 2009 by Thea

The ninth annual “Uptown Stroll: A Festival of Art in Action” is happening tomorrow, Saturday, August 28, at Counterbalance Park. The event will be going on all day – from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – and will include around 50 local artists who will be creating artwork right there on the spot.

Many of the artists are returning participants, though quite a few are newcomers eager to join in the festival tradition. The event is free to the public, and viewers are encouraged to watch the artists at work, ask questions and engage in conversation.

Art ranges from paintings and pottery to jewelry making, puppeteering, balloon art, craft projects, and music and spoken word (to name just a few). Works created at the “Uptown Stroll” will be available for purchase during the event.

Counterbalance Park is located at the intersection of Roy Street and Queen Anne Ave. N. For more information call (206) 283-9047.
