VII,” which will present the seventh installment of KAC’s biennial juried contemporary ceramics exhibition; a group exhibition titled “Apparitions,” which is curated by KAC Gallery Curator J. Gordon, that explores supernatural beings and creatures in both folklore and pop culture; and the popular Kirkland Holiday Market.

In addition, colorful steel sculptures by artist Ed McCarthy will be featured on Kirkland’s lively Park Lane avenue from August 2018 to August 2019. The 15th annual Kirkland Artist Studio Tour will als be held over Mother’s Day weekend, with pop, abstract, and futuristic works by KAC instructors displayed throughout 2018.
