Interested in having your work featured on consignment at downtown Mount Vernon's beautiful retail art space, the LIDO Collective?

LIDO Collective, the newest economic development initiative by the Mount Vernon Downtown Association, aims to support entrepreneurial artists and artisan makers. It provides a year-round brick-and-mortar retail outlet for locally made gifts and art. Additionally, LIDO Collective seeks to enhance foot traffic in the historic downtown district by offering a unique shopping experience. The gallery and gift shop currently showcases the works of approximately 60 artists.

Local creatives from Whatcom, Skagit, Island, and Snohomish counties are encouraged to apply now. Art at the LIDO is handled on a consignment basis, with no requirement to work in the retail store. Applications are accepted continuously online; however, the selection committee meets at periodic intervals throughout the year to review new work.

The next selection committee review is beginning soon, so apply by Thursday, March 7th to be considered for this Spring! After the first round of online reviews, the committee will do the final review of artwork in person.

Please 1) complete the written no-fee application below or by clicking HERE and 2) email a minimum of 4 photographs of your work to
