One of several carved pieces by Lyonel Grant for the Evergreen Longhouse Weavers’ Studio, Olympia, WA
I flew to Seattle for a number of reasons: alternative doctor diagnosis and treatment, work with Sue on a button robe, meet up with my niece and fellow artist to discuss our exhibit next year, and check out the Maori/Coast Salish carvings for the planned “Weavers’ Studio” at the Evergreen Longhouse campus in Olympia, Washington.

There is an X-Country race on Saturday, September 26 at Sandy Beach. This will likely impact the flow of traffic in and out of the rink parking lot.
Runners will be on the road, crossing the Treadwell Arena parking lot and will have the right-of-way.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be flaggers that will likely be stopping cars as runner cross. Please give yourself additional time to get to the rink.
