For the past three years, in a sunny office on the second floor of the Open Space for Arts & Community, co-founders Janet McAlpin and David Godsey have been putting their considerable creative talents toward a brand new act. Calling it a makeover from the inside out, the two performing artists are launching a $1.5 million renovation of the building with a kick-off gala event — The Big O — the first Sunday in June.
Community Events, October 2016
Two years ago, Vashon Allied Arts (now Vashon Center for the Arts) presented an evening of contemporary choreography to an enthusiastic island audience. This weekend, the island arts organization will again host both on-and off-island choreographers for "Flashpoint: An Evening of Contemporary Dance."
Swindler will bring its signature and innovative fusion of funk, groove, jazz and rock to the Red Bike at 8:30 p.m. Friday.
Vashon Chamber Music will open its new season with an evening of Schubert and Schumann at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Katherine L White Hall.
It's been a big year for Vashon Center for the Arts. The grassroots organization turned 50 in 2016, opened the doors to its $20 million arts center in April and will hold its art auction, "Come Together: Celebrating 50 Years," in the new facility this weekend. But the icing on the artistic cake came when Governor Jay Inslee and the Washington State Arts Commission recently awarded the community nonprofit one of five Governor's Arts & Heritage Awards.
