The Whidbey Island Community Arts and Education Center invites the community to its open house Saturday, April 27.

Several local organizations have joined to form an arts and education center at the old Bayview School in Langley. To celebrate the opening of the newly renovated school, they are hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., followed by an artists’ reception from 6 to 8 p.m. at the completely renovated old Bayview School.

The partners for this venture include: Whidbey Island Community Education Center; Northwest Institute of Literary Arts; New Stories and The Whidbey Geodome; and The Art Center @ WICEC.

An additional event is set for 6:30 p.m. Sunday, April 28. “Analog Days” shows how technology has changed our culture. Sponsor is Humanities Washington and WICEC.

Internally-known author and speaker Alex Alben will lead a conversation about how those born before 1980 increasingly cannot recognize the world around them.
