Art Show sponsored by Vashon Classic Sheepdog Trial

Approaching our end of summer season on Vashon brings lovely images to mind: warm, sunny days, garden harvest(this year, anyway), beach play, and of course, our own sheepdog trial. The island and greater Seattle area communities have gathered each year to see this traditional interplay of handler, sheepdog, and sheep played out on the bucolic setting of Misty Isle Farms through courses modeled on competitions held in the Scottish borderlands for over a century.

We’re fortunate living here to count so many, excellent and varied artists among our residents so it seems natural for the Sheepdog Trial to celebrate their talents in an art exhibit and competition and also to further celebrate historical human connection with agriculture by naming the exhibit "The Value and Beauty of Farm Life". The art work entered is amazing and the majority live on Vashon Island.

The exhibit opens September 7, at the Two Wall Gallery. Come celebrate farm life and vote for the People’s Choice Award!
