– Yelm Business Association, Triad Theater to Host Art Show
The Yelm Business Association and The Triad Arts Theater announcing they are hosting an arts and crafts show from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the weekend of September 10th. The show will be located at RE/MAX Country in downtown Yelm.
“Though a fundraiser, the emphasis is on supporting and featuring local artists,” said Steve Craig, Yelm Business Association (YBA) vice president and chair of the YBA’s Beautification Committee, in a Press Release. He added, “This is the first sponsorship of a summer arts and crafts show in Yelm featuring the amazing talent that resides in the area.”
The minimal entry fee is $25, which will be charged to participants. Artists interested in participating in the summer arts/crafts show/sale can contact Craig at 360-790-7490.
Sponsoring an annual summer and winter art show is consistent with the Yelm Business Association Beautification Committee’s recommendation that the arts in Yelm could and should become a focal point, seeking to make Yelm more of a “destination” and less of a perceived “drive-by” experience, Craig explained. The Yelm Business Assn. hosted the first-of-a-kind community Art Show last December, covered here:
