And the winner is ...

New owner of Ilwaco landmark wins fishing trip

Abigail Mack, winner of our Aug. 3 Art Walk drawing for a free fishing trip with Seabreeze Charters, receives her prize from Randy Powell. Abigail is the new owner of the historic Doupe Building at the intersection of First and Spruce streets in downtown Ilwaco. She's taking on the important task of renovating and developing the landmark, and we wish her the best of luck! Congrats, Abigail. 

NEW in the Gallery

Art's in bloom at the port

Mother Nature's a marvelous muse, isn't she? Her beautiful blooms have provided me with inspiration for years now.

Newer floral pieces include "Summer Sunflowers" and "Garden Sunflowers", both of which are for sale in the gallery.

Looking Ahead

Sept. is last market month

Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco represents some of the best this peninsula has to offer -- some of the best eats, some of the best produce, some of the best art. You get the idea. The lively weekend market held Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. attracts locals and visitors alike. Put it on your summer to-do list.

Ilwaco Slow Drag is Sept. 7

Slow and steady wins this whimsical drag race held each September on Howerton Way along the Port of Ilwaco. The Slow Drag also kicks off the annual Rod Run to the End of the World, a classic car extravaganza set for Sept. 8-9.
