WORTHY TRADITION >>>

Now in its 21st year, the annual Arts Olympia Show and Sale this weekend at the Capital Museum Coach House promises, according to hype for the event, to be the best ever. And we're inclined to believe said hype. Why? Well, this year's event hype includes mention of Olympia's new mayor, Stephen Buxbaum, kicking off the festivities during a Friday-night opening reception (a definite plus), and - more importantly - Volcano arts writer and critic Alec Clayton delivering a lecture Saturday afternoon.

And did we mention Sunday promises a poetry event featuring members of the Olympia Poetry Network? 

The three-day show comes under the header Perspectives 2012 and will include the work of nearly 40 local artists. This one's a no-brainer - which is probably why, year after year, the Arts Olympia Show and Sale keeps coming back for more.

[Capital Museum Coach House, Friday, Feb. 10 5-7 p.m. opening reception with Olympia Mayor Stephen Buxbaum, Saturday, Feb. 11 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Alec Clayton speaks at 1 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 12 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. poetry event at 1 p.m., 211 W. 21st Ave., Olympia, artsolympia.org]

The Arts Olympia group has had a ball getting ready for this show. Anticipation and Preparation are a good part of the fun, and we've all enjoyed the process. I especially like the poster art by Mark Holland, one of our members, which seems to capture with its peering faces, the theme of "Perspectives". Different artists/different views.

A very diverse group of artists with talents in many styles. Pieces sell quickly so get there early!
