The Blue Heron Gallery will host an art sale next week. Reminiscent of last year’s Archives Art Sale, which featured works by Island artists, this year’s sale offers works donated by passionate Island art collectors.

The sale will take place at Blue Heron Gallery May 30 and 31 and June 1. Some of the Island’s most discriminating art collectors (and a few off-Island ones, too) have contributed works of art of every kind for sale to Vashon Allied Arts members and friends.

While it is expected that some art will have been created by Island artists, much will be from artists around the country and the world. Islanders should be prepared to look for special finds not otherwise available. Those who already collect a particular kind of art are invited to see if works from their specialty are on hand.

This is not an auction, but an open gallery event, where patrons walk in, find pieces, buy them and take them home. There will be paintings, prints, photographs, posters, textiles, sculpture, pottery and more.

The special event will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 30, for VAA members only (if not members, people may join at the door). Doors are open for the general public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 31, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 1.

For more information, call Janice Mallman at 463-5131, ext. 224, or Susan Sullivan at 463-4164.
