Whatcom READS and Allied Arts of Whatcom County present the 2019 Whatcom READS Art Challenge. We challenged artists to create works inspired by the novel “The Big Burn” by Timothy Egan. Works on display are by various local artists as well as featured artists Dedrian Clark, Lori Hill, John Hoyte, and Ron Pattern.

The exhibit was open to artists of all genres, mediums, and skill levels. After reading the book, artists created a piece in a medium of their choice that was inspired by the story. For more information visit or

We’re happy to announce that this will be the 7th annual Recycled Arts Resource Expo! RARE is a two-day event that provides a platform for eco-friendly artists to showcase their art created from recycle materials. RARE also promotes art organizations and facilities that incorporate sustainability in their facilities and programs. One of our main objectives for this event is to educate the community on the role that the arts can play in the sustainability movement. This year’s RARE event will provide an entertaining array of events, as well as hosting a strong program of educational workshops, speakers, panel discussions, exhibits and booths. Attendees are inspired to take home innovative ideas that recognize the value of using resources creatively. Click here for more information about events happening all over Bellingham.

The Allied Arts Gallery will feature work from local artists whose work is made up of 75% or more recycled materials.
