Sun and art meet in Anacortes

Published August 1, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

Even Arts Festival promotional efforts are tied to art, as evidenced by this Commercial Avenue piece: “East Meets Northwest 2010” by Stephen Rock. The morning sun reflects brightly on lettering that celebrates the Anacortes Arts Festival! (Festival opens Friday, August 4 at 10 a.m. Already open to the public is the Port Fine Art Show at the Port of Anacortes Transit Shed Event Center on the north end of Commercial Avenue.)

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
