ART IN PUBLIC PLACES - Camano Arts Association
CAA members regularly show their artwork in public locations through the CAA's Art In Public Places Program. You will find their exhibit locations on Camano Island and in Stanwood, WA. This is one of the ways CAA participates in our community! Current displays can be found at: the Camano Island Community Center, the Stanwood Public Library, Island County's Four Springs House and Lake Preserve, and sometimes at the Island's elementary schools - Utsalady and Elger Bay.
Individual CAA Artists also loan their artwork to local businesses for extended periods of time. All pieces exhibited are original completed works of art, professionally mounted and displayed, with an informational gallery card close by. Most pieces are for sale. Look to the gallery card for each Artist's contact number and the purchasing information.
All CAA Members are welcome to participate in this program. This program is designed to help our membership commit to and keep our association's goals; reaching out to our community, promoting fine art, and inspiring our youth to build a foundation and pursue art as a way to express themselves throughout their lives.
In addition to our High School Mentorship Program, some CAA members have participated in a local elementary school program called Afternoon of Art. Artist members volunteer their time to design a classroom project, coordinate a supply list, and teach their individual art medium and techniques to a classroom of students. Who better to introduce their passion than the artists themselves? It is very gratifying for the members of CAA to exhibit their gift of talent and enhance the lives of others in a hands-on setting.
Art exchanges are announced during General Meetings. If you have an idea of a place where we could display art in the local area, please let us know.
