The Mercer Island Visual Arts League (MIVAL) Holiday Show will be held on Friday at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center.

An opening night celebration will be from 6:30-8 p.m. on Nov. 1, with artist awards presented at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served along with live music. The community is welcome.

Now in its 20th year, the MIVAL Holiday Show brings more than art to the Community Center. Find beautiful handmade wreaths, holiday décor, jewelry, scarves, textiles, sculpture, painting and photography, along with a sense of history and community.

Judith Roan, the manager of the MIVAL Gallery says “the Holiday Show is a community tradition and MIVAL artists are very honored to partner with the city each year during the holiday season.”

There will be more than 40 artists showing this year.

MIVAL has a long and storied history. Founded in 1961, MIVAL currently has over 100 members involved in creating their own art and providing service in our community. Their programs include MIVAL Gallery, MIVAL Jr. Art Program, High School Art Scholarship, in addition to helping with Summer Celebration and Art Uncorked.
