August Art Walk in Pictures

Art was happening in all quarters and all corners of West Seattle yesterday evening! Musical art from How Short was the All-Walk Crosswalk soundtrack, and a pop-up art display by Ablefader’s Fantastic Traveling Art Gallery parked on California for easy viewing. There were good deals and good causes: who entered to win Seahawks tickets at RE/Max, while taking in Chuck Lysen’s layered photography? And new participant Washington Management Co. donated one of artist Stuart Judd’s painting as a fundraiser to help the Global Compassion Clinic. Gustavo Penengo of PRDG Architecture+Design showed us Green, LEED-certified design that is good for the earth. The Building’s return to Art Walk, with open studios throughout, was a welcome event.

Virago Gallery showcased stunning, searing portraiture from Alicia Brown, and Rosefit brought back Alexandra Penglis’ richly layered digital pieces. Click! Design that Fits has Amber Leaders’ spunky mid-century inspired materials to inspire real correspondence, and Wild Rose’s textured mixed media seascapes by LeeAnn Sylves called us to the ocean. Whitney LaRene, our featured Q3 artist, displayed new work at Flying Apron, and sold Mt. Rainier right there and then!

It was practically standing-room-only tastings at Viscon Cellars for Nikki Hobensack’s Art Walk debut, where her figurative florals were backed by abstract design, and newest landscape exploration are on display. Extended happy hours were up and down the Junction, and West5 opened their windows to the summer air.

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 July by volunteer photographers Tami L., 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.
