2011 Tile Festival




Tile Restoration

Juried Show:


This year’s theme for the juried show, “Signage”, references the millennial old tradition of marking shops, professional offices and residences with tile signs.  Before literacy became wide spread, the signs used images and symbols rather than words.  Come see how contemporary tile work reflect, alter and adapt this long tradition.

Madison Park Blogger re Tile Festival

Tile artists return to the Park on Saturday

Madison Park’s Pioneer Hall is the venue again this year for the Handmade Tile Festival, presented by Artisan Tile NW.  Over twenty tile artists will be participating in this, the 6th Annual Festival.  Many of these artists will also be submitting their works for a juried show at the conclusion of the Festival.

The theme for the show this year is “Signage.” This is a reference to the old tradition of fronting shops, professional offices and residences with tile signs. In the period before widespread literacy, such signs often used images and symbols rather than words.  Many of the Northwest tile artists in this show will be doing a contemporary take on this old tile-signage art form.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Festival has chosen Madison Park for the event.  There will be a public-invited reception and preview of the exhibition on Friday evening (5-8 PM) at Pioneer Hall, with the show itself taking place on Saturday, October 1, from 10 AM until 5 PM.  Pioneer Hall is located at 1642 43rd Avenue E.

The artists will be on hand at the Friday reception and throughout the day on Saturday. Most of the tiles on display during the show will be available for sale.

Artisan Tile NW is a non-profit handmade tile-makers group dedicated to the creation, promotion and preservation of the art and craft of handmade tile.  You can see more examples of tile art at the group’sFlickr photostream.
