SLIDESHOW: Burien Arts celebrates another successful 20/20 Vision art show and sale

The fifth annual Burien Arts’ 20/20 Vision fundraiser was THE public Art Happening of the fall Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Keller Williams real estate office across from Town Square in downtown Burien.

Burien Arts’ 20/20 Vision featured 400 small-format pieces of excellent, affordably priced original art by more than 20 emerging artists of the Puget Sound region, as well as a silent auction of select additional original art by two featured artists and 20/20 Vision artists.

To insure the quality of the art, and that a variety of art styles and media are represented in the event, artists participated by invitation only.

During the event, there were surprise performances, tasty snacks and beverages provided by the many local restaurants that generously support Burien Arts.

The art show and sale was initiated, and continues to be presented, by Burien Arts. Launched in 2008, the event provides a public venue for local and emerging artists to exhibit their work and gain broader exposure, and it is a major fundraiser for Burien Arts.

Net proceeds from 20/20 Vision are used by Burien Arts to continue and expand existing, and to offer new, public arts programs, services and experiences.

Most of the small format art works were priced at $40 each – with a minimum of 50 percent of that amount coming to Burien Arts. Each year, some artists generously donate part or all of their commission from each sale to support Burien Arts.
