The Premier Arts Event in the Washougal Area

The 2023 Washougal Art and Music Festival

Saturday, August 12th, 9am - 3pm

This is the premier arts event in the Washougal area and the flagship event of the Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance.

Every year we gather dozens of local-area artists to participate in an outdoor, lively, family-friendly event in a festival-like atmosphere. Artists are able to meet other artists and people who love art. It allows a free-flow of information, ideas and feedback for the artists while also providing a way for local area residents and visitors to become engaged with art in a more hands-on way. This year we are collaborating with Washougal Songcraft Festival to include music during the festival and we have local writers sharing their books.  Come join us for a wonderful event!

2023 Washougal Art & Music Festival Poster

"We are excited to have Shirley Bishop's Artwork as the centerpiece of our festival poster," said festival organizer Janice Ferguson. "Her work perfectly captures the spirit of creativity and expression we strive to foster at the festival."

Shirley got her inspiration for her Spring Birch Trees from the beautiful scenery all over Washougal.  I have a screen of birch trees in my living room, as well as a wall with birch bark faux painted so I’d say birch trees are my favorite thing to create with glass.

Explore Shirley's artwork at STUDIO13 GLASSART.
