June Art Walk in Pictures

While many art lovers were celebrating graduation night, the Junction and beyond were still hopping with others seeking artistic inspiration (and a good happy hour deal!). There was much to be found, from Brazilian Chita-fabric artist Debora Nascimento at Art Nest to Bellingham painter Jill Feenstra who made it a family affair at Canna Culture Shop with husband Ira Feenstra’s photography. We said farewell to Courtney Sievertson of Wallflower Custom Framing which will be closing forever at the end of June – but who was still very busy filling final orders for loyal customers. Her wife Jessica Creager of Kingston celebrated the event with a retrospective show, and fascinating millinery.

Art Walk is officially on the second story! We followed the helpful green arrows up to Rosefit where Candice Rose showed us her training space designed to motivate and inspire. She always has a DJ for artwalk and great snacks, and Sandrina Reyes’ art was the perfect complement to Mari Shibuya’s aspirational wall murals. We gave an official welcome to West Seattle Smile Co. whose beautiful space showed off Tom Constantini’s watercolors of things he loves.

Junction anchor Click! featured Brooke Westlund’s inventive map montages and striking abstract paintings. Wild Rose’s displayed oil paintings and ceramic art pieces by Janet Ramble. Capers showcased the gorgeous land- and skyscapes of Diana Grant.

If you just happen to have a black-light flashlight, be sure to take it along when you next go to Flying Apron! First-time exhibitor Hailey Price gave us a demo of the transformation with her shimmering poured acrylic pieces, in shimmery sequin overalls. And the black walls of Virago boutique were the perfect backdrop for Q2-featured artist Megan Simmons’s new work.

Our evening closed in the South End. Jenna Howell’s summery watercolors sparkled at Viscon Cellars – June is their last month, so be sure to visit! At Inner Alchemy, the Divine Masculine was interpreted by several male Tribe members in their Artist Collective. And at The Office of Rebecca Mitsui, the sassy foodstuffs that graced Kelly Jackson’s pin-up pieces brought many smiles.

We want to thank all 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 SeattleJohn L. Scott Real Estate and Sound Credit Union. 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 June by volunteer photographers Todd M., Janet L. and Reeve W. Most of the artwork featured will be up all month long, so do find time to visit these venues.
