Downtown Issaquah to host art-centric event Sunday, Nov. 28

Artists Sunday will feature artists from around the region.

Support local artists and creative businesses on Artists Sunday, Nov. 28, from noon – 6pm. The Issaquah Depot Museum features rotating artists from around the county with special musical performances including seasonal Magical Strings – Celtic Music at 5pm.

Artists Sunday is a national movement to encourage consumers to shop with local artists and craftspeople during the holiday season. A Downtown Issaquah Spokesperson compared it to Black Friday or Small Business Saturday but for the arts.

The Artisan Market intertwines with the annual Holiday Shop in the Historic Shell Station and opens Friday through Sunday noon – 6pm from Thanksgiving to New Years.

Locations: The Issaquah Depot Museum 78 First Avenue NE and the Historic Shell Station 232 Front Street N.

The Artisan Market in each location features original artwork from hand-carved wood pieces to paintings, jewelry, pet portraits and distinctive gifts for every age and tastes.

Visitors to Historic Downtown Issaquah also can browse the wares of local merchants, and varied food choices at restaurants, some of which will be open for take-out and tented outdoor seating.

Artists are also on full display with their creations in window fronts at: AAA Building, Bukhara Restaurant, Fischer’s Meats, Yum-e Yogurt and Forest Fairy Bakery along Front Street, Capri Cellars.
