This weekend art enthusiasts are invited to enjoy the annual Summer Artwalk sponsored by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. Dozens of merchants in Old Town Anacortes will show the work of local artists: paintings, sculptures, jewelry, photography, music and more.  A new 6-month art show called “Here Comes Summer” at City Hall opens June 7 with “98221 artists.” Friday night’s event (6-9 p.m.) will be in conjunction with the First Friday Art Walk.

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.
