The Langley Main Street Association is seeking artists interested in going “wild with imagination and holiday cheer” and possibly winning a cash prize by helping gussy up downtown shops and assisting Deck the Doors organizers create an outdoor gallery for the holidays.

Five winners will be chosen by an impartial panel of judges, and each will receive $500.

Deck the Doors, a Langley tradition, helps brighten the town for the holidays and rewards artists for their talents. Last year, decorations were found on over 40 shops throughout downtown; some featured all hand-crafted decorations, many used imaginative materials to reflect the theme of the shops, others brought humor and smiles.

“The biggest winners were the visitors to town who enjoyed the displays,” Lorinda Kay, program manager of the Langley Main Street Association, said.

Doors must be ready for judging by end of day Wednesday, Nov. 22. Winners will be announced at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16 at Boy and Dog Park. The only guideline is that the display be interesting both day and night.

Merchants can contact their favorite artists or receive a list of interested artists from Langley Main Street, or be their own artists. Email mainstreet@whidbey.com for details.
