Tsuga Gallery to hold art festival in September


Tsuga Gallery, of Cathlamet, has announced its first-ever Cathlamet Art Festival. Art on the River is scheduled to take place on September 15 and 16. The Art Festival will include music, demonstrations and an art walk. Local authors reading from their own work will be headlined by Todd Marshall, the Poet Laureate of Washington State.

The Cathlamet Art Festival will open Friday night, Sept. 15 with a reception at the Tsuga Gallery, 70 Main St., featuring an open mike for artistic reminiscing. There will be live music, snacks and beverages at the reception. Music at the historic Pioneer Church, the Cathlamet Hotel and the Julia Butler Hansen House Garden (weather permitting) will be scheduled on both Friday and Saturday nights.

Saturday will feature art vendors, demonstrations, an art walk and more music. There will be a featured two-hour workshop on poetry by Poet Laureate Marshall. Also offered are workshops by Debbie Neely (print making), Dan Westlind (steampunk art), Debbi Littlefield (colored pencils) and Bob Kizziar (art appreciation).

Tsuga Gallery was formed in 2011, by benefactor Janet Cimino in a century old building on Main Street of Cathlamet. Her goal was to bring artists and locals together to make, learn and participate in a community based art program. Still artistically strong today, Tsuga Gallery’s goals are to continue Cimino’s dream, bringing artwork to the Northwest.
