Birds of the West Booksigning & Demo

Join Molly Hashimoto, artist and author behind "Birds of the West: An Artist's Guide," for a free art demo and booksigning.

Meet artist and author Molly Hashimoto, Cascadia Art Museum's guest artist for the May Edmonds Art Walk.

Every third Thursday from 5-8 pm galleries, businesses, and restaurants join in celebrating the arts & cultivating local vitality within Edmonds. Cascadia Art Museum has been participating since their opening in September 2015, providing the community with live music, artist demonstrations and exclusive screenings of Northwest artist videos. They are also excited to offer free admission during the Art Walk Edmonds evenings.

The Edmonds Art Walk is a grassroots community event held monthly throughout the year, rain or shine. With over 40 galleries and businesses hosting local and regional artists, we invite you to come enjoy all types of art including fine art, music, dance, theatre, performance art, culinary art, and the written word. With a growing assortment of fun events and activities, you will always find something new to engage your creative mind.

From the diminutive ruby-crowned kinglet to the majestic golden eagle, Molly’s range of art and detail encourages all of us, whether artists or not, to observe our feathered friends more closely.
