Local sculpture artists featured at Lake Sammamish State Park

Art installations will be displayed at the park through Sept. 15.

Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park is pleased to host “Art in the Park”, an exhibit featuring 10 local artists Aug. 12 through Sept. 15 at Lake Sammamish State Park.

A call to artists went out last spring and 11 artists were selected by a jury panel in June. Some of the submissions were of existing work while others were uniquely created for this exhibit. The sculptures represent diverse styles and incorporate a variety of materials including wood, tiles, fiber, and steel.

Artists include Grayson Morris, Abigail Kinney, Ed McCarthy, Jacob Foran, Nina Vichayapai, EmmEmm & Alexis Kandra, Ken and Naoko Morisawa, Haiying Wu, Lucirlei De Andrade, and Tina Hays.

To view the art, visit the park any day, dawn to dusk. The expo will be set up in the area around the Kitchen Shelter.

A daily parking fee of $10 is required, or an annual Discover Pass. Discover Passes can be purchased at www.discoverpass.wa.gov.

The exhibit is generously sponsored by the City of Issaquah Arts Commission, Banner Bank, Miriam and Jon Friedman, Downtown Issaquah Association and Regency Centers.
