February Art Walk in Pictures

We felt the love last night – and it felt like you did, too! Despite (in spite of?) the 4:30pm downpour and cold, we saw a mix of singles, couples, and families, and people of all ages enjoying the Valentine Eve festivities in the Alaska, Admiral, Morgan Junctions, and beyond. Did you pick up your raffle tickets at each venue? And put them into one of the five drop boxes? You have a chance through Saturday afternoon, Feb 16, and the drawing is on Feb 17. Thank you for playing and best of luck!

Did you see our new flags on participating businesses? We ❤ them.

Chocolate was a dominant theme, as a number of our businesses collaborated with chocolatiers to bring comforting and exotic flavors to art lovers’ palates. Our favorite story was from The Hot Chocolate Man at Verity Credit Union, who is a retired firefighter, in his “second act,” making and teaching others how to make chocolate. A generous gift!

In Admiral, all three hosting businesses were sharing the love, and giving emerging artists visibility, along with an acoustic guitar soundtrack at West Seattle Grounds. Bookending in Arbor Heights was the jazz guitar at Brace Point Pottery & Gallery, creating a mellow vibe that seemed to be working – four of Kathy Collins’ watercolors already had red dots, and David Somers’ laser-etched “White Raven” sold out from under our beaks!

The Building did not disappoint with exquisite hand-drawn architectural studies by Gustavo at PRDG, encaustics by Jenee Kreinheder and textural paintings by Alexis St. John. But probably the most fascinating artistic expression was Mareah Love’s mandalas at Inner Alchemy. She demonstrated their spiritual energy in a simple test of balance strength with our eyes closed (wiggly without the mandala, and solid when it was in our immediate space!). We highly recommend checking them out to see what speaks to you.

We want to thank all our generous partners for the support they bring the West Seattle Art Walk – Verity Credit Union, Canna West SeattleJohn 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 February by volunteer photographers Carole B., Jacquie S., Lora R. and Reeve W. Most of the artwork featured will be up all month long, so do find time to visit these venues.
