There was so much to love about last night’s Valentine’s Day Art Walk! For the visual arts, viewers felt the longing to connect with a cultural heritage in May Kytonen’s work at ArtsWest, Tom Constantini’s passion for vintage cars and architecture at Wild Rose’s, and the crush Click! has on Ryan McAbery’s multi-dimensional acrylic pieces. For sweet treats, visitors enjoyed macarons at Welcome Road Winery, fine chocolate pairings at Viscon Cellars, and, as Ala Mode Pies said (it best): “Nothing says ‘I love you’ like Pie!”
Young and old felt the love in a packed house at Easy Street staffer Mia Day’s EP debut performance. Did we mention she’s a senior in high school? And our debut “Passport to Love” had families playing alongside veteran art lovers, intent on getting heart-shaped stickers in the Junction and venues to the North and South. Thanks to all who played, and for your support of the Arts and our West Seattle businesses! We will announce the lucky winners early next week.
Lastly, in the language of Art, sometimes love goes unspoken:
Through the brushstrokes I can express what I cannot always say. Sarah Ghanooni, Artist, John L. Scott
We want to thank our generous partners for the support they bring the West Seattle Art Walk – The Office of Rebecca Mitsui, Verity Credit Union, Northwest Art & Frame, Canna West Seattle, and John L. Scott Real Estate. Thank you, too, to the all artists, merchants, and restaurants/bars/cafes for making this monthly event happen. To you, art-seeker, thanks for being part of this community.
Here’s a small photo recap of Art Walk night for the month of February by volunteer photographer Tami L. Most of the artwork featured will be up all month long, so do find time to visit these venues.
