509Art http://www.509art.com/ is helping to Build community through the Arts. 509Art is an organization that promotes and encourages the engagement of the creative community within the 509 area code. Our purpose is to gather together artists of Eastern Washington in an effort to bring about a new vision and resurgence of the creative arts. 509Art is a resource connecting artists, ideas and community together to build relationships, present concepts, initiate possibilities, expand thinking and disarm barriers. Be sure to get on their mailing list.
We have Art Salon every 3rd Friday of the month. Always at someone else's house or an establishment of some kind.
