To the editor:

As a former Islander, who has always been involved in the arts, I'd like to remind folks about a very robust and important artist organization in Bremerton, which is head and shoulders above anything I've seen here or in Europe. The Collective Visions Group, with a large and lovely gallery in Central Bremerton, has been sponsoring a state-wide arts competition for the last seven years, featuring significant prizes and a host of events around the show.

I was asked to do video of their award ceremony and I was blown away with the size of the audience and the presentations of the mayor and other community figures. This group is truly deeply embedded in their community. The show goes on till the end of the month, with current voting on the peoples' choice of the entries.

If you can possibly go to the gallery, do it! These people are pushing the envelope in the best of directions for both artists and community.
