Kathleen Faulkner is the Friends of the Forest’s featured artist for this year’s annual fall benefit.
Faulkner’s work is inspired by the environment of the Pacific Northwest. The featured piece is a 18-by-24-inch oil pastel titled “Island Residents.”
“We are blessed in this community with a substantial forest area called the Anacortes Community Forest Lands,” she said. “I am honored to be this year’s featured artist.”
The benefit is 5:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Port of Anacortes Transit Shed Event Center.
The cost is $50 per person ($25 is tax deductible), $400 for a table of eight and $500 for a table of 10.
An increasing number of city leaders in communities across the country, including the City of Anacortes, are embracing the environmental, financial and quality of life benefits that come with a bicycle friendly community.
Because of this, Anacortes was named a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists this week.
“I applaud the Anacortes Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee for promoting bicycle/pedestrian safety and recreational opportunities for our community and for their efforts to secure this prestigious award for the City of Anacortes,” Mayor Dean Maxwell said.
The award will be presented to the city at Monday’s City Council meeting at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
