Mystic Artists of The Northwest

In fact, some rather eclectic artists were actually profiled in the 1950s in the popular magazine “Life.” The title of the magazine article was simply “Mystic Artists of the Northwest.” The article is a window into the world of the unique and clever art found throughout this incredible part of Washington State. With multiple art museums in the area such as The Museum of Northwest Art, The Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum and The Skagit County Historical Museum, art abounds in La Conner.

The Christianson’s Nursery festivities include wine tasting, shopping and a number of featured artists from the local area.
