This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Washington state parks. Crow Valley Pottery, in alliance with Friends of Moran and Plein Air Washington artists, is presenting a full day’s celebration and benefit art show on Saturday, July 27 from noon until 6 p.m. There is no cost and parking will be provided at the Orcas Golf Course.
The festivities will be held at Crow Valley’s “Cabin” shop and will feature a Moran State Park history exhibit by the Friends of Moran and 100 pieces of original art focused exclusively on Washington State Parks and Moran State Park by Crow Valley’s roster of artists and PAWA.
A portion of the proceeds from all art sales benefit Friends of Moran, the nonprofit group that provides trail maps, emergency phone, educational outreach, maintenance and clean-up, and projects like the Moran Creek Hatchery.
In addition, a special painting of the Mt. Constitution Tower by artist Robin Lassen has been contributed to the Friends and will be awarded via raffle at 5 p.m. on July 27 at Crow Valley. Raffle tickets are available at the Mt. Constitution gift shop and both Crow Valley Pottery shops. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit Friends of Moran.
The day’s fun includes live music by “The 2 Daves,” the “Almost Canadian Classical” group, Jim Litchfield and Joe Miller. And naturally, peanuts, popcorn and lemonade will be on hand.
