Pioneer Hall was packed with art enthusiasts this evening as Artisan Tile Northwest hosted a reception featuring the artists who will be participating in tomorrow's Northwest Handmade Tile Festival.
The show begins at Pioneer Hall at 10 am and continues through 5 pm.
Madison Park's own Barbara Clark (Agapanther Tiles) will be displaying her hand-carved nature tiles, examples of which are shown here. She and the twenty or more other participating tile makers demonstrate a wide range of styles and techniques in their work. Nature, however, is definitely a common theme of many of these Northwest artists. If you like what you see at the Festival, you can bring it home with you. Everything is for sale.
