May VIRTUAL Art Walk

Our virtual Art Walk was such a success last month, we had to do it again! Check out the full gallery of work below or click this link to view a curated virtual Art Walk on YouTube! We again opened Art Walk to all artists who wanted to join, so have a blend of business-coordinated and artist-led exhibits. Marvel at the wide and deep variety of media, formats, subjects and moods of our 46 artists, an Art Walk Record!!

As for any second Thursday, all art is available for sale. If you would like to purchase something from an artist coordinated by a business, please contact the business first. If you would like to purchase something from an artist exhibiting on their own, please reach out directly to them with the contact information listed.

Thank you for being innovative and supportive of your artists during this challenging time! West Seattle Art Walk is so appreciated right now. Sydney Davis, Fine Art


Even though this is a virtual Art Walk this month, we want to remind our Art Lovers that this event is powered by our participating artists, businesses, and restaurants. When we are all free to return to the streets in support of our community, they will welcome everyone to stop by and celebrate our vibrant art scene. With open arms, we will add!


Our small businesses still need our help to survive the crisis in our community!

The West Seattle Junction Association has set up a Junction Small Business Relief Fund, a fundraising campaign to help cover essential monthly expenses for merchants and service providers throughout West Seattle. Click here to learn more how your tax-free donation can help – and give today!

Join the People Who Have Already Donated! As of May 6, the community has donated $34,576 + $29,000 matching gift cards from West Seattle Christian Church + $10,000 matching fund from Verity Credit Union + $722 during Give BIG. That’s $78,298! Thank you, West Seattle!


There’s more on social media! See the post live at 5pm on Thursday, May 14, on our Facebook page, or on our YouTube Playlist, where we will be showing a loop of short videos that some artists submitted to give more context to their work. Also be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook as those pages get updated more frequently.

Adrienne Bell-Koch

Elevate the Mundane

I am a Seattle-based oil painter who studied fine art, art history, and perception science at the University of Pennsylvania. Radical empathy is at the core of every portrait, as I embrace each subject’s chosen presentation to show their inherent beauty. As a gender neutral artist, I try to see beyond prescriptive identities and not limit an image with expectations. Painting from life and photographs, my practice is based on the physical act of visually interpreting and creating memories. I fill them with color, reveling in the magical illusion of paint. My  goal is to capture the attitude, feeling, and character of the moment and elevate the mundane.

Linocut prints and oil paintings are available at West Seattle Grounds. Please email abell.koch@gmail.com for painting purchase and commission information.

Deb McCarroll

Deb McCarroll’s bold work embodies the Northwest’s regional culture. Patterns are created with Seattle’s ubiquitous falling rain. Paper is integrated into wet paint and then set on fire. Metal leafs are frequently woven into scenes and selectively oxidized with acid to add patinas in glittering greens and browns. Local flora and fauna are painted in startling realism and then pared with raw abstract practices.

McCarroll’s work is featured in numerous private collections, including 5 paintings in the Seattle Paramount Hotel permanent collection. She was feature cover artist in Still Point Quarterly’s 2018 Four Freedoms limited edition book. She was cover artist for 2015 Stone Voices arts magazine and she was awarded ‘Best Painting’ in the Still Point Art Gallery’s juried competition, Earth Water Fire Air: Our World. And this year she was awarded the Special Merit prize in Light, Space and Time gallery’s Figurative competition.

“Trained in graphic design, I juxtapose clean, detailed forms with raw, textured backgrounds. I am inspired by artists like Jasper Johns, Rothko, Frankenthaler and while my work can be figurative, its beating heart is abstract.” – Deb McCarroll

Linda McClamrock

Beauty for Hard Times

Linda is a West Seattle paper collage and mixed media artist who delights in providing beautiful, unique, and affordable art for people’s homes. As a recent fan said “(her) art is always full of heart!” Linda’s a savant with scissors, who doesn’t draw her designs first. She sees the finished piece in her head and starts cutting shapes from her stash of salvaged papers. You’ll find the perfect gift for a well-missed friend or family member, or something to add some cheer to your home.

Short Bio:  I am a self taught collage artist living in West Seattle. I didn’t know until I was in my 50’s that I had any artistic skill, and making collages is my absolute favorite thing to do. I don’t draw any of my designs, but take my scissors and a stack of magazines and start cutting shapes. I never use the content of the magazine, only the colors and textures for my own content. I also teach collage workshops at C&P Coffee.

Cheek to Cheek

Music is essential to my life. Although I am a painter, I would give up painting and sculpture before music was taken from me. So I use my creative time to throw on a record, disconnect and let the music empower my art. I listen to the music of who I am painting, which sets the tone for backgrounds as I focus on a lyric, song or album of the subject. Which is why you’ll find mostly rock & roll in my work!

We like the music we do for a reason. There is something that connects us to it whether we can identify what it is or not. A human being made that beat, lyric, effect and turned it into something relatable. My hope is that when you look at one of my pieces, it generates the emotion you feel when listening to that artist. No matter what the emotion.

Elyssa Cichy

A Study of Bonsai

May flowers? Yes, definitely into those. May bonsai? Even better!

West Seattle artist, Elyssa Cichy, debuts her latest works during this month’s virtual Art Walk. Her mixed media pieces bring the outside in and celebrate the centuries-old art of bonsai.

Each piece is a study in patience and process, not unlike the subject that she captures so perfectly. Drawings become woodburnings, which are then painted and detailed *just-so*.

The collection includes ready to hang original art panels, framed paintings, earrings and even kitchen tools. The full range of work is available online and on view in our store windows until we’re able to re-open.

Learn more about Elyssa’s work at her Instagram and the Click! blog post.

Reeve Washburn

Floating Depths

This collection is inspired by my memory of art history textbook plates of Japanese Ukiyo-E paintings – “Pictures of the Floating World” – and my interest in textured, layered reveals. The idea of a floating world was always evocative, and came to me as I was exploring how to integrate my leanings toward structure with freer painted expression. Most every piece in this collection explores how clean-edged strokes of the Catalyst Wedge tool can work with painterly strokes of the brush. For some, structure is overlaid; on others, it’s underlaid, almost to the point of unrecognizability. The farther away from structure I get, the more challenging it is – in a good, growth kind of way. And I’m also learning that structure can hold us up, versus hold us in.

About the Artist

I’ve been in the business of creating for many years, first as a graphic designer, then as a project and account manager of brand design. Being artistic has always been a given in my life, and being part of the creative process has always been very satisfying. At a career juncture in 2018, I joined the West Seattle Art Walk as a way to engage more deeply in my community. The experience has been transformative in so many ways. I have been inspired by the participating businesses and artists, their stories and their work. I’ve tapped into my own curiosity to paint and stepped past reluctance to go beyond my comfort zone. I’ve gained more confidence in self-expression. It is exciting to share my own vision with others!

Shape Shifting with Acrylics

“Getting out of my head is a crucial first step in any creative endeavor. With Acrylic paint pouring there is a freedom and excitement … and no way to control the outcome. I love colors and textures and the sure knowledge that each piece will have its own unfolding. My part is to enjoy the process and be patient. I love all things improv…singing, movement and art … even the art of conversation where one never knows the destination … I simply enjoy the journey.”

Sydney Davis

Lately there has been so much uncertainty and stress in our lives. Over the last year, I’d been painting en plein air a lot when I traveled, but now travel has halted and I find myself more attracted to “innerscapes” instead of landscapes. My recent work is a reflection of turning inward and trying to embrace the new normal we find ourselves in with social distancing and working from home. While still inspired by nature, my work in early 2020 has been more abstract and reflective. Several pieces are abstracted versions of a micro-view of the insides of things, such as geodes or flowers, and others are an exaggerated macro-view, much like an aerial photograph of a beach or other landscape. I hope the viewer enjoys these new perspectives, and that these new viewpoints inspire a new perspective and calm in the viewer.

Brooke Borcherding

Deconstructed Landscapes in Acrylic

Brooke is a full-time, award-winning artist at age 32, working out of Capitol Hill Seattle WA.  Her acrylic paintings focus on innovation, aesthetics, perception and place.  With a background in plein air (on site) landscape painting, she has developed an affinity for color, dynamic composition, and the beauty of the every day.   “Yes, some historians may consider the landscape a thing of the past, an art that ‘has already been done’.  But I find it is never done, and forever something to be discovered in the moment.  Graduating with a BFA in 2010 from the UofO, I have abstained from taking any further workshops and continue my practice of broken color, energetic mark making by constant observation and putting in the ‘brush miles’ of prolific output.  I enjoy creating harmonious aesthetic works of art that cater to our human senses of universal beauty.  Thus, I hope that my deconstructed style of painting that I’ve currenly landed on can stimulate these senses.  The images in the virtual tour are all available for in person viewing at Caffe Ladro which is still open for to go coffee! For purchase or inquiry please contact me directly at brookeborcherding@gmail.com

Ellen Zrimsek, hosted by NW Encaustics

Forest For the Trees

Ellen Zrimsek is an encaustic artist who has made her home in West Seattle for the last 40 years. Creating with wax allows for magic and mystery to collaborate in the very forgiving process of melting beeswax medium onto wood cradled board. This series, Forest For the Trees, is honor of the magnificence of the Earth’s one-legged beings and the book Overstory, by Richard Powers.

INNER ALCHEMY, TREASURES AND TRANSFORMATION

7354 35TH AVE SW

We are very sad to announce that Inner Alchemy is closing its storefront and “Sanctuary for Spiritual Adventure” at the end of May, 2020. Owner Maari Falsetto and the entire Tribe of Healing Specialists will continue to offer events and private sessions online, and are striving to find meaningful and healthy ways to hold in-person events in locations throughout Seattle when it’s possible.

I have loved each and every moment of Inner Alchemy’s last three years.  Maari Falsetto, Owner, Inner Alchemy

We at the Art Walk have always valued Maari’s commitment to the arts. Inner Alchemy’s creative mission is three-pronged: to empower artists to show their work; to inspire artists to create new work; and to help businesses support artists’ efforts while building community. Each month’s exhibit, called a community party, featured a unique theme expressed in the artworks and drew neighbors, the Inner Alchemy Tribe and the artists’ friends and family to celebrate.

You can discover more about Inner Alchemy’s evolution on their WebsiteInstagram or Facebook pages. The West Seattle Art Walk also featured Inner Alchemy as our first Business Spotlight in January 2019 to honor their commitments to the arts and community.

Brace Point Pottery & Gallery is a showcase not only for the beautiful ceramic art of Loren Lukens, long-time West Seattle artist and resident, but other ceramicists, painters, fiber artists, mixed media, musicians and more!

Featured May Artist: Garrison Coverdale

Space Dust Revisited

I was a student at WSU when I got hooked on ceramics. We used a wood burning, very inefficient kiln that took hours to reach the relatively low temperature required for “RAKU” ware. I graduated and went on to graduate school at the University of Hawaii majoring in ceramics and sculpture. The Japanese fired in the “Raku” method back in the 16th century using lead based glazes on hand made pieces used in the tea ceremony. Removing the piece from the kiln while it is still very hot and placing it in a combustible such as dried leaves or straw which ignited caused the glaze to vary in ways that the traditional high fire did not. Earth, water, fire: All the elements come together to form unpredictable patterns so that each piece becomes a unique experience that couldn’t be duplicated even if I wanted to.

Katie Wilson

With these pieces I invite you wander a golden moonscape, count tree rings, follow a stranger through a forest, and remember the strength of your roots. 

I strive to make art that balances beauty and unease. I delight in imagining what may be hidden below the ground or lurking under the water’s surface. My work is inspired by a childhood spent wandering the beaches and woods of nearby Vashon Island and I have a deep love of nature that leaks into all my art. I currently live in West Seattle with my family and our aloof cat.

Artist Statement

I am a resin artist inspired by crystals, the moon, ebb and flow, relationships, and the cycle of life. I am drawn to clean, vibrant color and organic form. My work allows me to live in the moment. When I’m creating I feel whole. When I’m not creating I’m dreaming about my future pieces.

Everything about working with resin intrigues me. There is a certain stress because of  the minimal work time before the resin begins to cure. But this stress leads to a hopeful anticipation and excitement to see how the resin heats up and reacts before settling down. Resin does what it does and that may be why I am so obsessed. Even the most well thought out plans change as the resin does its “resin thing”. It is because of this that I love working with this magical medium. The unpredictability mirrors life but it all works out in the end.

Kimberly is originally from Greater New Orleans and has been residing in the Pacific Northwest for the past 20 years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from LSU. Her studio is located in the Lake City Neighborhood of Seattle.

Babs Fulton

Wardrobe Thief

Babs explores collage art combined with how much we all love our pets in her show she is calling “Wardrobe Thief”

It’s spring and you see so many dogs wearing high fashion via jackets and more.

Soooo what if dogs, and cats raided our closets and accessories when we were not home. Here is their fashion show result!

Babs has been an artist her entire life which includes Painting, Photography, collage and Writing.

I’m also a geek and proud of it.

Programming and writing code is an art form in my eyes.

My acrylic paintings display a love of modern/pop combined with science, Seattle architecture, math, high tech, english slang, and of course my personal outlook applied to the subject at hand. Each painting name is also part of the art.

Magdalena Cooney

Despite being born into a repressive communist regime, Magdalena Cooney was destined to become a painter.  Growing up in a children’s puppet theatre, her parents provided a magical cocoon, creating an alternate world marked by whimsy, fantasy and larger-than-life characters.  Self-taught Cooney credits her parents and their cadre of artist friends as her first and most important teachers.

Her father, a set designer and puppet maker, and her mother, a graphic designer, influenced Cooney’s ability to create amidst a culture of censorship.  The theatre was always Cooney’s “happy place,” and she believes it is the reason her paintings lean towards the evocative, non-objective rather than specific.  From an early age, Cooney was acutely aware of the competing forces of dark and light at play in her life.  These contrasts are apparent in the opposing hues seen in many of Cooney’s paintings.  Her choice of color palettes also reflects her two homes:  one echoes the famous red and orange rooftops of her birthplace, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), and the other is inspired by the cool grey and blue tones of her current home in Seattle, Washington.  The contrast in colors moves through Cooney’s paintings as she expertly blends and layers to create fascinating, sensual swirls of emotion and texture. In her latest experimentation, Cooney uses unusual painting tools to create her large canvases for a complex textured look.

Not interested in shock value, Cooney says her paintings feel like home, a place in your heart that is precious and where you feel most like yourself.

Catalina Garreton

Hi, West Seattle Art Walk! I am a new artist to the WS Art Walk (though a native West Seattle-ite!), returning home after living on the east coast, Chile, Barcelona, San Francisco and Portland. I am thrilled to have a studio in the Othello Street studios with some gorgeously talented studio mates. My art is about COLOR and being bold, feeling the emotion in nature as well as the ups and downs of life. I create abstract commission paintings which tell and celebrate a family or individual’s lives and sacred stories. I also paint live at events capturing the essence of an evening and have painted for World Central Kitchen in New York, the French Embassy in DC, and wineries all events all over the west coast. While social gatherings are on hold for now, I have begun teaching virtual art classes over Zoom (as well as art birthday parties for kids!). It is pure joy!! You can visit my website to find out more as well as sign up for classes, or play along with me on Instagram.

Carolyn Autenrieth

“The Magnolias bloomed and we stayed inside”

The paintings reflect recent musings on spring during solitary morning walks. Slower pace and earnest reflection brought notice to the same magnolia tree; observing the consistent passage of time with or without an audience. Fleeting moments and fragile structures revisited on the same tree, call out small moments. The ceramic pieces bring contrast to surface in the “Touch, Don’t Touch” body of work. The attraction to things beautiful often result from imperfections, struggle, or contrast. These vase pieces reflect simple forms, altered as though speaking to the effects of time and growth on their surface, and call to mind the contrast of our current season.

Elena Naskova

Artist Statement

A line can depict a shape, a wiggle, a horizon, a mountain top, a wrinkle, a wave, a hair and what else?  Add to it some color, and a whole world is born out of an empty space.

My work explores exactly that: the intricate dance of lines with colors to the music of inspiration.  Every work of art is a birth of a new world with its own story, tension, drama and beauty.  It’s a privilege to be an artist and witness the birth of these worlds, and experience first hand the stories they tell.

I am a West Seattle artist painting in oils…figurative, beach scenes, portraits, etc. Much of what I do is on a commission basis.

Wai Wong

Wai Wong Photo and Art

I am a late bloomer. I started to paint in June 2018 and I discovered that I love painting. Adding on to my interest in photography, my life has been enriched significantly. My inspirations come from my constant awareness of beauty wherever I am. A good day is taking my camera and go on an adventure, or spending unrestricted time on a painting. I believe that I am a dream-maker because whatever I had truly wanted in life I can manifest it, somehow, somewhere, and someday. I thrive on living meaningfully, creating art, inspiring others, and giving to my community.

Betty Zou

COVID19

Betty Zou is a Seattle artist who paints in watercolor, gouache, and dabbles in illustration. Her work is often inspired by the natural landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. She created these four pieces in the early weeks leading up to the COVID 19 stay home orders, at a time when she was experiencing a deep sense of loss and anger. The paintings in this series show our interconnectedness, our need for touch, and the rapidity of transmission.

Art Notes: The three large pieces are done on hot press watercolor paper, 12″ x 18″. The one smaller piece is on cold press water color paper, 9″ x 12″. All are painted with watercolor and charcoal.

Lizz Slabaugh

Onion Hands

Onion Hands emerged out of Lizz Slabaugh’s frustration with the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and our nation’s response. When Seattle businesses first started getting hit financially in March, Lizz was asked to create an advertisement for Swanson’s Shoe Repair using Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” art as inspiration. Unfortunately, the shop closed due to the stay-at-home order, and the ad creation halted. Regardless, the ideas continued to brew until Lizz could hold them in no longer. Lizz is just getting started and plans to continue Onion Hands as a fun and cathartic outlet.

Daniel Marin

Creating under the conceptual moniker Department M, Daniel Marin’s paintings bring together elements of pop, abstraction, street art, carpentry and décollage, depicting colorful and surreal moments in time. Marin sources imagery from magazines, comic books, newspapers and many other forms of media, blending features from each to craft the images in his work. Each piece is created using a layering approach made up of steps of silk-screening, freehand painting, hand cut stenciling and collage work, producing impactful compositions built on the artist’s patience and pleasure. A self-taught artist from Miami, FL, Marin’s work portrays engaging scenes with underlying stories and hints of both humor and tension, all left for the viewer to piece together.

Barbara Mosher

Barbara’s art has been called eclectic, evocative and powerful.  Energy resonates her canvases and the colors vibrate among the shapes which hint of her work as an automotive designer.  She embraces the world, as the world embraces her, and is influenced by culture, its struggles and its beauty.

Having called herself an artist since she was 5 years old, not until she moved into abstract art, after a career in the more realistic disciplines, did she feel her heart sing as she painted.

Vicki Basta

Bio/Statement

Vicki Basta is a Seattle based artist and photographer.  Through close-up photography, she exposes the viewer to magnified details that are often missed in casual observation.   Zooming in and capturing a section of a leaf or or an industrial object showes the viewer intricate veins, textures and colors.   She is also intrigued by the similarities of natural and industrial objects when set by side, such as rusted red metal and red mossy tree bark.  Her photography is recognized by textures, patterns and colors through themes of decay, new life and transformation in urban and natural settings, mirroring our own process of life and death.  While out photographing, she gathers natural and found objects and blend them with paint or to stand alone to create mixed media shadow boxes and paintings.  Vicki  has been experimenting painting on tea bags and experimenting with textures through watercolor and eco-friendly paints.

Rohini Mathur

A native of New Delhi, India, Rohini Mathur is a self-taught oil painting artist who now lives and works in Bothell, Washington. She creates vibrant paintings of colorful florals, botanicals and gardens that pay homage to the immense wonders of Mother Nature.

About her purpose as an artist she explains, “I believe there is no better way to appreciate and be in reverence of the magnificent beauty of Mother Nature than capturing those through my playful brushstrokes on the canvas”. Inspired by this desire to express the beauty of the natural world, Rohini brings to life her paintings using her own distinctive style and interpretations rather than literal renderings.

Rohini’s style of painting is loose, abstract impressionistic as she attempts to capture the essence and mood of her subjects rather than a complete detailed mirror image. Bright and bold colors are her go-to palette and she paints in her favorite medium, Oils.

Rohini is an award-winning artist whose art has been juried into several art exhibitions and shows in Washington and Oregon. In 2019, her paintings were honored with City of Kent Purchase Awards in the City of Kent Summer Art Exhibition and included in the City’s Public Art Collection. Rohini’s painting also won an award at the  City of Kent Look Up exhibition organized by Kent Creates community program.

In 2018, she was selected as one of the winner Apprentices for the 2018-2019 Washington State Heritage Arts Apprenticeship Program. Also, Rohini was selected and invited as one of the two Emerging Artists from Washington and Oregon to showcase her artwork at the 2017 Salem Art Fair & Festival in Salem, Oregon.

Her art has been juried into several art exhibitions and shows at several local galleries such Kirkland Art Center, Parklane Gallery, artEAST Gallery, Schack Art Center and Gallery North. Over the years, Rohini’s paintings have also been selected for various juried art shows such as City of Kent Summer Art Exhibit, Edmonds Juried Art Show, Annual Kenmore Art Show, Shoreline Arts Festival and many others.

Rohini’s artwork can be found in numerous private and public collections worldwide including the public art collection at City of Kent, WA.

In 2019 I began weekly treks to the wild places in Washington state. Every Saturday I would search out solitude looking for and finding out of the way trails. The more remote the better. In these weekly adventures, I would take hundreds of images on my digital camera, so small and lightweight compared to my normal 5-pound film camera. I went snap-happy, taking tons of photos of details and vistas, things that gave me joy and delight. I began sharing my experiences online and was overwhelmed with how much they resonated with people. Everyone loves the outdoors, though not everyone has the ability to do so, due to time, commitments, or ability. At the end of the year I had an idea for making art out of the treasure trove of images I had compiled. These pieces are the result.

These are prints from my cellphone camera, mounted to circular panels, with encaustic and india ink applied. Razor blades provide a way to scrape and make marks for the ink, drawing if you will, and steel wool is used to burnish the surface and remove excess amounts of ink. I call these portals because they provide a glimpse into what I love most about nature.

Artist Note! I’m a photographic-based artist that lives in Alki. Quite a few of my artworks include images taken in West Seattle. If you’ve ever seen a woman walking around the neighborhood with a weird looking camera dangling from her wrist, that was probably me!
