The Battle Ground Art Alliance has revamped the structure of its annual Spring Art Show and Sale, promising to offer an interactive and engaging experience for attendees Saturday at the Battle Ground Community Center.
This year’s show — the 19th annual — will feature displays from 20 artists from Southwest Washington, showcasing their best works in an array of media, including painting, mixed media, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, and more.
Oh, and it’s free to attend.
A big change to this year’s show is a lineup of live demonstrations by some of the participating artists. Those who appreciate art will get an up-close look at the creative process and will be able to engage in conversations with artists about their techniques and inspirations.
Liz Pike is one of the artists who will be displaying her latest works at the Battle Ground show.
“I’m honored to participate. I grew up in Battle Ground, and it’s always a treat to come back,” Pike said.
Pike has been working in oils and canvas throughout her life. Her works are inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and the gardens at her organic Shangri-La Farm in Fern Prairie. She recently opened the Pike Art Gallery in downtown Camas, and she is a member of the Battle Ground Art Alliance.
The alliance is inviting all art lovers to attend and witness the diverse and dynamic works created by its members and experience the magic of art in a whole new way.
The Battle Ground Spring Art Show is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 22. The Battle Ground Community Center is at 912 E. Main Street in downtown Battle Ground.
