About the Sammamish Arts Fair
The Sammamish Arts Fair is an annual Arts Fair, which is now in its seventh year. It has grown in reputation to be one of the most anticipated arts events on the East side, and it will feature some of the best jury selected local artists in our area.
Come and visit with the artists, see their work and learn about their creative process. Inside the City Hall building, the highest quality and variety of fine art will be available for purchase, and will include original works of art such as; paintings, jewelry, mixed media, encaustic art, glass arts, ceramics, printmaking, woodcarving, photography and textile art.
In the adjacent Sammamish Library and the outside Commons Plaza area, there will be an exciting program of Arts Encounters, which will include performance artists, hands on family arts activities and projects during the fair weekend.
The Arts Fair is a community-wide cultural art experience, which is produced in partnership with the participating Artists and the Sammamish Arts Commission.
Sponsorship is gratefully received from the City of Sammamish, the Sammamish Arts Commission and 4Culture. Admission is free.
The Sammamish Chamber of Commerce has invited the Arts Fair Artists to take part in their annual evening celebrations on the 10th of August, 2013. Sammamish Nights is a ticket event featuring some of the finest local restaurants, wineries, live jazz and a spectacular summer sunset. The Arts Fair Artists will create a sophisticated art walk atmosphere, engaging guests with their unique variety of fine art for perusal and for purchase.
Mission of the Arts Fair
The Community: The Sammamish Arts Fair endeavors to create an easily accessible community arts and cultural event, that is produced to the highest quality, and showcases some of the best local artists residing in and around the Eastside, so that we may provide a rich fine arts experience for all ages and interests.
The Artists: The Sammamish Arts Fair provides a unique platform for local artists to interact with the community and gain exposure and promotion of their artwork. We create a meaningful artists community, which is supportive of new and emerging artists as well as established ones, and encourage mentoring within the group both artistically and through team building whilst producing a successful arts event together.
