Edmonds School District Community Arts Program Coordinator and Lynnwood resident Barbara Childs is one of 20 artists featured in Artists Sunday — a nationwide online day of art shopping set for Sunday, Nov. 29.
The designated day features 2,000-plus artists from all 50 states, with Childs and fellow artist Angela Bandurka from Lynnwood and five from Edmonds — Allison Leigh Lilly, Barbara Chapman, Cheryl Brown, Janis Graves and Sue Robertson.
Childs, who owns Childs Pottery, said the event could not come at a better time, with artists around the country reeling from the cancellation of most in-person sales opportunities since March. A survey from American for the Arts found the arts and culture sector has suffered a $13.1 billion economic hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Childs Pottery is just one local example, with over a 70% drop in sales for the year so far, she said.
