Art & Entertainment
Vashon-Maury Island is home to many painters, potters, jewelers, stained glass artists, musicians, writers and organic farmers. Vashon's artist's association presents the First Friday gallery cruise on the first Friday of each month from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. First Friday features a variety of accomplished local artists, not to mention a variety of wines and cheeses to help your gallery stroll.
Other types of performances by local and off- Island entertainers offer a wide range of choices that are presented to the public several times monthly (plays, poetry readings, etc.). In addition, there are ongoing art classes and an 'artists in the schools' program.
Cottage industries abound and the resulting fine arts and crafts are sold in many of our shops, galleries and at Saturday Market. May and December brings a host of open studios for you to tour. Please check our events listings for more information.
