November Art Walk

Art Walk is back on Thursday, November 12, 5pm ’til late! More and more businesses are open and showing art, either during business hours or on 2nd Thursday evening. Be sure to note below which is which, and come on out tomorrow night!

Continuing for November: Live broadcasts! Our Beta Team will be covering some of the receptions. Join in on our Instagram and Facebook accounts! Check out the social accounts of your favorite exhibiting business – they may be live, too!

Welcome to Alaska Junction business Snip It’s, our newest Art Walk host! See listing below for more about their debut show that focuses on the beauty of social justice.

We recognized that not everyone is quite ready for full-on Art Walk, either businesses, artists or Art Lovers. So we will continue to take it slow. Let us know what you think and what was the most comfortable for you. We also want to remind our Art Lovers that this event is powered by our participating artists, businesses, and restaurants. Thank you for all you do to celebrate our vibrant art scene in West Seattle!

Fall 2020 Art Walk: October 8, November 12, December 10

Featured Q4 Artist! Congratulations to Glenda Weibel whose watercolor on archival tissue paper “Almond Blossoms¨ is our featured art for Q4. Her work is on display at Flying Apron during business hours throughout the month of October. West Seattle Grounds in November, and Zelda Zonk in December.

About the Artist

Glenda is a watercolor artist who has lived in West Seattle for over 20 years. She loves the immediacy and fluidity of watercolor, but has recently been exploring ways to free watercolor paintings from being framed behind glass. She achieves this by painting directly onto archival tissue paper and mounting them on a canvas, finished with varnish. This technique maintains the freshness of watercolor, yet sets it free from glass.

Deb McCarroll BUSINESS HOURS ONLY (Permanent collection)

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 leaf is 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.

Sheila Lengle BUSINESS HOURS ONLY

Sheila Lengle is a West Seattle artist whose work you may recognize as it has been chosen for the West Seattle Garden Tour poster art in 2012 and 2018. She finds peace and contentment during these challenging times by cuddling her three kitties (Jake cozies with the artist under his portrait), keeping her yard in rural beauty, and is helping build a carport to replace the one she lost during the snows of 2018.

With tongue-in-cheek she describes her graphically whimsical style as being informed by coloring book and paint by number art. Her show is hung on the high walls of Bakery Nouveau.

I am a homegrown, Seattle born and based artist. Creating art from a young age, I recently returned to my passion through acrylic and pencil mediums nearly four years ago.

Doll Parts Collective

6016 California Ave SW, Suite C

Ryan Breault INDOOR + RECEPTION, 5-9pm

I am an interdisciplinary fine artist originally from Dallas, TX now living in Seattle, WA.

Using a range of painting mediums, I aim to create a world of unexpected juxtapositions focused on nature reclaiming deserted structures. Living creatures provide a constant reminder of passing time coming with it the cycle of death, decay, and rebirth.

My art attempts to pinpoint this process by composing panoramic landscapes populated by isolated animals and abandoned organisms. The intertwining of natural elements and decomposition composes a narrative that highlights the struggle and beauty of survival.

Learn more about Ryan’s work at his Instagram and Facebook pages and website.


We welcome Doll Parts Collective, a new member of the Morgan Junction neighborhood, to Art Walk! Learn more about them in the words of their co-proprietors, Alyssa and Becky:

Karen Ussery INDOORS + RECEPTION

Join Us for the Reception! 5:00-7:00pm

Note from Jan: We welcome you to come by any time and take a look. Of course, face coverings are required in the shop, all social distancing rules apply, and we ask that you limit your visit to 20 minutes.

I am an artistic photographer. I make images of pattern, abstraction and detail found in nature.

After 35 years in the Arizona desert, I now call the Pacific Northwest my home. The move was not just a physical relocation; it was a major lifestyle change from frantically busy to peaceful. As a recovering “do-aholic,” my photography reflects the peaceful life I now live.

Each image is an invitation to stop for a moment, to breathe, to see the beauty in the details around us. Focusing on clean subjects and patterns, my intent is to create art through which people feel their connection to the natural world. My work is ideal for places where a serene environment is desired, such as spas, hospitals and medical offices, hotels, as well as homes and offices.

Learn more about Karen’s work at her website.

Please contact Jan at West Seattle Cellars for purchase details.

Beata was born in the former Czechoslovakia.  Her artistic talent was discovered at a very young age, and she began her many years of study under Eastern Europe’s finest instructors.  She ultimately graduated from art school, specializing in fine art and art restoration.  Having studied restoration, Beata has developed a truly unique ability to understand how the masters created their works, and she applies similar techniques to her own.  Heavily influenced by her native Eastern Europe, the use of color and texture are woven into her versatile style.
