In the Valley of Mystic Light: Book Reading & Signing
Saturday, December 9, 1pm
$5 suggested donation

Join us in celebrating the publication of a book authored by Claire Swedberg and Rita Hupy that explores the unique history of the art scene in the Skagit Valley. Through personal accounts of the renowned and not-so-renowned artists who have passed through and found inspiration in and around La Conner, In the Valley of Mystic Light was inspired by two questions: Why do artists choose a specific small town to inhabit? and How does such a migration impact the artists as well as their neighbors and community?

Hosted in partnership with the Skagit County Historical Museum. The Skagit County Higtocial Museum will host a fall exhibit opening October 27, 2017 and running through February 4, 2018 featuring the works of local artists that help exemplify the matters discussed in Hupy and Swedberg's book.
