Arts of the Terrace

Each year the Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission, along with Friends of the Arts, diligently work to present a high caliber art show to the public. We look forward to the 42nd Arts of the Terrace art show in 2022. Show dates are September 24-October 1.

Thanks for your support, 
Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission and Friends of the Arts.

Arts of the Terrace
Sponsored by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission and the Friends of the Arts, “Arts of the Terrace” is one of the major juried art shows held in the Pacific Northwest and attracts top artists from throughout the region.  Enjoy paintings, prints, drawings, miniatures, photography, 3-dimensional works and artisan works.

As a juried art show, artists compete for more than $5,000 in cash awards and art merchandise and the quality and caliber of art submissions has increased the competition for being accepted into the show.

Volunteers are very important to this Art Show! You can help a little or a lot. To volunteer, please email Bonnie Mercer.
