Third Thursday November 15th ART WALK & First Dibbs!
Downtown Edmonds 5-8 pm
Join a mother daughter art duo for their attempt to create an artistic menagerie. From cards to scarves to jewelry—there is always something delightfully new. Slip your feet into hand-crafted altered Shakespearean shoes and browse through delightful art and holiday gifts.
As mother and daughter, Mona and Alyssa Fairbanks love many of the same things: history, reading, cooking and ART. Although they create different kinds of art, each looks to the other for inspiration.
A recent graduate in History from Whitman College, Alyssa brings a fresh perspective to her art while still being grounded in her mom's dedication to craft and technique. She is currently interning with King County Bar Association with hope of one day becoming a lawyer helping out her community. Alyssa likes to print, make cards and is currently into repurposing high heels by covering them with tinted works from Shakespeare. Mona is a printmaker and art teacher who enjoys a good art challenge whether it is cutting steel into large flower shapes [watch for these in the ARTspot window displays!] or embedding sewn prints in resin.
Both Mona and Alyssa love to share their art with the community by working at ARTspot at the front counter, and in the studio coordinating classes and teaching kids art.
