Last night, West Seattle was thrumming with art appreciation and Art Walk specials, from North Admiral to Arbor Heights! It was very exciting to see everyone come out on a cold and wet night, especially to our newest businesses in Admiral Junction. Things were All Blue at Capers with a cerulean group show, David Knowles’ caricatures were sassy at the Admiral Pub, and Morgan Smalley’s landscapes were textural at West Seattle Grounds. Nick Orf’s Portraits were wordy at Hotwire, Jenna Howell’s watercolors were painted in front of our eyes at Wild Rose’s, and the edible art of Chefs Binkhorst and Chim at Inner Alchemy was a huge draw for their community party! Rick Moreno’s captured nostalgia was a blast at Menchie’s, Deb McCarroll’s rain portraits were inspired at Row House, and Leon Lowman’s abstracts thrilled at Brace Point. We were just as excited as Emily Juarez for her first-ever show in Seattle at Zelda Zonk, and loved that Jim Gerlitz keeps his art as fresh as ever, hosted by PRDG Architecture + Design at The Building.
We want to thank all our generous partners for the support they bring the West Seattle Art Walk – Verity Credit Union, Canna West Seattle, John L. Scott Real Estate, PCC West Seattle and our media partner West Seattle Blog. 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 January by volunteer photographers Sofia V., 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.
