50th was memorable

It was a great Anacortes Arts Festival, made all the more special this year by the fact that it was the 50th. A multimedia presentation commemorated the event. Festival awards include: Anacortes native Lanny Bergner, who took home the coveted People’s Choice fine art award, sponsored by Peoples Bank. This award was chosen by votes from nearly 3,000 visitors to the Fine Art Exhibition at the Port. Natalie Niblack of Mount Vernon received the T-Bailey Award. A wooden piece by Seattle artist Matt Sellars was chosen for the Anacortes Collects Purchase Award by the Marine Technology Center. The top $2,000 Wells Fargo Best of the Fest Award and Lara Knowles of Stanwood. Other booth artisan awards included the $1,000 Creativity Award that was presented to Helene Cooper from Port Angeles. The Anacortes Chamber of Commerce Partnership Awards were presented to Ronda Bergman of Snoqualmie, Marcio Diaz of Shoreline, Gina McCauley of Seattle, Kelly Phipps of Lyle, Chris and Ron Peterson of Tacoma and Helene Cooper of Port Angeles.

About Photographer 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.
