Introducing... The Netshed Challenge

Skansie Netshed
   Peninsula Arts League is proud to present: The Netshed Challenge. Local artist are gathering this summer to sketch, paint, photograph... artistically interpret the netsheds in historical downtown Gig Harbors along the scenic shoreline.
    There are 17 netsheds along the pleasant waterfront stroll. Though some may only be viewed from the water, many have easy viewing accessed from public areas. Please be mindful to private property and DO NOT TRESPASS.

Netshed maps for self guided tours can be found at the
GIG HARBOR VISITOR INFORMATION CENTER

 or access information on viewing, history ect. concerning the 17 structures by going to: http://www.gigharborguide.com/page.php?id=1761
   Plein air events will be scheduled on Thursdays or Saturdays throughout the summer to give opportunity for artists to work together and spectators to watch the artists at work. For those who are looking for a different perspective so that they may gather images to working in studio, there will be a Netshed cruise chartered for waterway viewing. These events will be created through Peninsula Art League's plein air group facilitators and posted here. If you have questions or want to be a part of this project and receive e-vitations to the gatherings you may contact
