611 R Ave, The Depot 

The Anacortes Arts Commission presents the 2017 Dual Challenge exhibit: “One by Two”.  This project started with a photo provided by 9 fabric artists. The guidelines were simple: use the photo as inspiration in any way you choose to produce a small wall hanging size quilt. No side of the quilt can exceed 50 inches. From there it was up to each artist to go it alone on their quilt.  Come see the results on Friday, May 5 from 6-9 pm and Saturday, May 6 from 10 am to 2:00 pm.
