Virtual Juried Art Show and Youth Art Show Recap
2020 Shoreline Arts Festival
Presented by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council

We had to cancel the 2020 Shoreline Arts Festival at the Shoreline Community College, but thanks to some incredible support, we were able to pivot the much loved Juried Art Exhibit and Youth Art Exhibit online this year.

Supporting local and budding artists is our key mission; and through this Covid-19 pandemic, we plan on doing just that – continue to cultivate creativity and inspire our community through the arts. Thank you for following along with us on this adventure. #CreativityCantBeQuarantined

Social Distancing
Artist: Jennifer Himes

The artwork is currently featured online as well as the final results regarding the awards. Friends, family, artists, and community members virtually showed up in droves to vote this year, the People’s Choice Award voting surpassed 1,400 votes for both of the virtual art shows! Thank you so much for your support this year.

The Arts Council’s Executive Director, Lorie Hoffman, and event sponsor Joseph and Melissa Irons from Irons Brothers Construction announced the awards live via Zoom on Sunday night and shared a DIY birdhouse making video produced by IronsBC. You can view the video here!
