21st Annual Shoreline Arts Festival, June 25 and 26, 2011, Artitude:Art With An Attitude of Gratitude

From the Shoreline Lake Forest Park Arts Council

Each year we put our heads together and try to come up with a theme for the Shoreline Arts Festival, and this year we decided to focus on gratitude. During these tough economic times it’s easy to shift the focus from arts and culture, especially when basic needs are barely being met. We at the Arts Council are so grateful for the continuing support of the Cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park and each and every one of you. We couldn’t do what we do without you! So, the theme this year is Artitude: Art with an Attitude of Gratitude. Please join us for the 21st Shoreline Arts Festival on Saturday, June 25 from 10 - 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 26 from 10 - 5 p.m. at Shoreline Center as we continue our mission to nurture all of the arts in our community by sponsoring this culturally rich festival.

Our cultural rooms this year will feature Pacific Islander, Samoan, Korean, Japanese, Philippine, Taiwanese and Chinese exhibits as well as the Annual Philippine Parade.

Our Shoreline Room stage will feature a diverse line-up of acts this year: Carlos Xavier’s Fable and Flute storytelling, the Pacific Northwest Budo Association, the Shoreline Senior Singers, Baile Glas Irish Dancers, Filipiniana Dancers, Melody Institute Chinese Dance, Hokulani’s Hula Studio & the Kupunas, Total Experience Gospel Choir, Inochi Taiko - Japanese drums and Alex Zerbe’s Comedy and Juggling show

Festival attendees will be able to explore the Juried Art Shows and the 60+ Artists Marketplace booths. Artists in our Marketplace are juried to insure quality and originality. Each piece of art is handmade and unique. Come purchase a piece for yourself or as a gift, or just come and be inspired!

Adjacent to the delicious offerings of the Food Court, the Showmobile Stage features popular bands and danceable music with acts like the Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra, Carson and Tess Henley – R&B, Connor Worley – Celtic/Originals, New Age Flamenco, Miss Rose and her Rhythm Percolators – 1920’s Jazz, Rat City Brass – Lounge Pop, Carrie Clark – Alt-Country Cabaret, The Kellee Bradley Band – Singer/Songwriter and more.

On Saturday, the Shoreline Auditorium will feature local children performing Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Auditions will take place June 20 so please check our website for more information.

Art projects in the popular Children’s Hands-on Art Arena will be rooted in our Festival theme in unique ways, including Art Puppets

Sun Prints, Formica Chip Collages, Colored Wire Creations, Cork Prints, Button Boys & Girls, Plexiglass Portraits and our popular Goyataku Fish Prints. Everyone is invited to contribute to the community Sand Mandala again this year. Other booths include printmaking with April Richardson, rubbings by the Shoreline Historical Society, North City Co-op Preschool’s toddler friendly art project and Kruckeberg Botanical Garden’s nature and art project

The Children’s Passport is back again, so don’t forget to get one on your way in and get it stamped at the stations around the festival. When it’s filled it up bring it to the lobby to claim a prize.

We are excited to welcome back the Northwest Collage Society exhibit and collage making workshop using recycled materials.

The winning poems from our Third Annual Poetry Month Contest will be posted in Poetry Hall. The Festival Breakfast will be held at the Shoreline Senior Center both days from 8:30-noon.

Shoreline Center is located at 18560 1st Avenue NE, Shoreline, WA 98155. Please call the Arts Council office at 206-417-4645 or visit us online at for more information.
