Gig Harbor, Wash. August 17 2010; Gig Harbor has been playing host to 15 beautiful artistic heron since May, all part of the SalmonChanted Harbor event.

Organizers of the third annual art event decided to shake it up in 2010, with heron sculptures instead of salmon. The heron is a bird frequently seen in and around the waters of Gig Harbor bay and other bays and estuaries in the area. These amazing resin sculptures were created by 15 artists and have been on display at 15 area locations since late May. You only have a few weeks left to enjoy them, and then they will be removed and prepared for the SalmonChanted Auction scheduled for September 18th at the Gig Harbor Yacht Club.

SalmonChanted Harbor 2010 is dedicated to the memory of Pauline Winchell, founder of the event and long time Ebb Tide Gallery artist.

SalmonChanted Harbor is produced by the Gig Harbor Gallery Association in support of the Peninsula Hands On Art program. Learn more or purchase auction tickets (253) 853-4514 or
