Changes coming to Edmonds Art Walk

Feb 19, 2014

The Downtown Edmonds Merchants Association or ‘DEMA’ (a committee of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce) is announcing that Edmonds Art Walk, which occurs every third Thursday, will be placed on hold effective in March.

This event, which is owned by DEMA, has been a very popular event, however, recent developments have led to a decision to retool the event.

For the next few months there will not be a formal Art Walk, although some businesses may continue to sponsor artists.

During this transition DEMA welcomes community input on the Edmonds Art Walk and requests that any comments or ideas be sent to demaedmonds@gmail.com.

DEMA officials said they wish to thank Jeff Stilwell and Manya Schilperoort of MaJe Gallery for their contributions to Edmonds Art Walk over the years.

DEMA looks forward to more great third Thursday events in the future and more information regarding next steps will be provided in the coming weeks.

The Downtown Edmonds Merchants Association (DEMA) is an independent unincorporated association of merchants in downtown Edmonds, and its operations are supported by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce through a committee structure providing assistance for DEMA activities.

Just a thought, but some of us have trouble getting childcare for such a brief time. Maybe there could be a space for children to make music, have books read to them, or make something like a piece of pottery or painting. Including kids in the Artwalk may bring out more participation. Our community is very family oriented.
