The Glass Art Festival exhibition at the Museum and Arts Center brought a packed house and most of its award winners to the Sept. 3 First Friday Art Walk.


Almost 100 pieces are on display by 61 artists from across Washington, the United States and world.


Visitors raved about the exhibit with a few agreeing it was the best show they’ve been to on the North Olympic Peninsula.


The Glass Art Festival runs through Sunday, Sept. 26, and is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday.  


A few workshops remain for the festival

• Delores Taylor, of Woodinville, and Chris Heilman, of Renton, will give a daylong event at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites beginning at 11 a.m. Sept. 18, with Taylor presenting at 4 p.m. and Heilman at 7 p.m.


• Hugh Willa, of Seattle, will speak at 7 p.m. Sept. 25 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church’s parish hall.
