Edmonds Scarecrow Festival

Vincent Go-Crow is now displayed on “the fence,” an outdoor display area adjacent to the ArtWorks at Second in Dayton in downtown Edmonds.[/caption]The first entrants in this year’s annual Edmonds Scarecrow Festival are beginning to show up on streetcorners, in front of homes and stores, and just about anywhere you can put a stake in the ground.

It’s all part of the opening of this year’s Edmonds Scarecrow Festival, a community event sponsored by the Edmonds Historical Museum in which entrants build scarecrows and the whole community joins in the fun by voting the best in several categories. Last year’s festival was a terrific success with more than 50 scarecrows registered and more than 500 votes cast.

Registration for the 2014 festival runs Oct. 1-15, and public voting gets underway on Oct. 16. But that hasn’t stopped some early birds from getting their entry into the public view.

One early entry is already up on Edmonds Art Commission’s Fence venue near the Art Works at Second and Dayton. Edmonds artists Mona Smiley-Fairbanks and Robin Westbrook’s “Starry Night” features Vincent van Go-Crow (aka, Vincent van Gogh) stepping out of his famous work “Starry Night.” The stars even light up after dark.

“We tried to be accurate in our depiction of van Gogh,” said Smiley-Fairbanks. “He always wore a blue drillcoat, simple black pants and shoes, and frequently a straw hat. The coat we used actually belonged to Robin’s father-in-law, a relic from his days flying and maintaining aircraft for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The rest came from thrift stores. But I think our scarecrow is a little taller than the real van Gogh.”

A little scarier too.

Fairbanks and Westbrook are professional artists, but don’t worry. There’s plenty of room for non-artist entries too. Scarecrows can be registered in six categories: Business in the bowl; business outside the bowl; government/civic group; artist/art group; residential; and school/youth group. Smiley and Westbrook’s entry will be in the Artist/Art Group category, so there’s plenty of opportunity for entries from everyone. The only guidelines are that scarecrows must be handmade and family-friendly.

“Our goals are to promote the Museum, get the community involved in an enjoyable creative activity that celebrates the season, and create opportunities for interaction between schools, artists, merchants and residents,” said Dave Buelow, Museum board member and scarecrow festival coordinator. “But most of all it’s about having fun!”

“Last year was the first time we tried this,” said Buelow, “and the response was incredible. We had 54 scarecrows officially entered, and this year we’re looking for lots more.”

Even if you don’t build a scarecrow, everyone is encouraged to join in the fun by casting votes online at the Museum’s website to determine the best scarecrow in each category. Voting will begin Oct. 16.

Visit the website, (www.HistoricEdmonds.org), for FAQs and simple “how to build a scarecrow” instructions. For more information, Buelow invites the public to email the Museum or call the Scarecrow Hotline at 425-774 6507.

David Marty Named 2014 Edmonds Arts Festival Poster Artist

View award-winning artist David Marty’s paintings – and feel the peace and tranquility of nature. The Edmonds Arts Festival is pleased to announce that his painting Evening at the Marina is the 2014 Edmonds Arts Festival poster. This image will be shown in the Festival advertisements, posters, website, and on specialty items in the Festival Store.

Working in oils on canvas, David credits plein air studies for improving his paintings. The oils are layered; starting thinly, he roughs the scene in, and then comes back again for further development. “It’s a real honor to be chosen by the Edmonds Arts Festival,” says David. “I hope you enjoy Evening at the Marina and my passion behind capturing the mood and essence of this moment in time.”

An exhibit of David’s original paintings will be shown in the EAF Foundation Gallery, located in the Frances Anderson Center, Main Entrance, 700 Main Street, Edmonds. The exhibit will open to the public on Monday, June 9 and will conclude on July 30. It can be viewed during Festival hours on June 13-15, and regular Gallery hours: (Mon.– Fri., 9 to 7, Sat., 10 to 1) on other days. David will also have an artist booth on the field during the Festival. Come enjoy David’s work, and the work of all of our artists at the Edmonds Arts Festival.
