From 5-8 p.m., ArtsNow/uLearn is featuring: Come Out of the Dark: A Multicultural Winter Solstice and artist reception, at the Edmonds Conference Center, 201 4th Ave N (the NW corner of 4th and Bell), in downtown Edmonds.

Come Out of the Dark: A Multi-Cultural Winter Solstice celebrates this annual moment in time, when humans move out of the dark into the promise of light, and features nearly 40 pieces by 19 local artists.

This Fall, uLearn/ArtsNow put the call out for contemporary and traditional (including folk art) entries from all cultures, using artists’ personal symbolism to represent cultural celebration of this mid-winter phenomenon.

The show has been juried by two guest judges: Jacqui Beck, an adjunct professor of art from Seattle Pacific University and Libby Gerber, from Artist Trust’s Creative Career Center.

At 7 p.m., an awards ceremony will commence to honor 1st and 2nd place, as well as special awards, which include gift certificate to local stores, like ARTspot.

Edmonds Community College music department chair, and instructor, John Sanders will lead an all-star Latin jazz combo: playing everything from salsa to swing - with a few holiday classics thrown in.

This is a free event; refreshments will be provided.
