{HE}Art Walk in Pictures

Love was in the air during the Feb 11 {HE}Art Walk with a number of (masked) in-person artist receptions. Something about the snow seemed to bring Art Lovers out to stroll and appreciate the work on display. If you weren’t able to come out, catch our livestream videos on Facebook and Instagram! Between the businesses and artists – and us – social media for the event burned with the flames of love. Let’s keep it up, people! It really was feeling like an event of yore.

Art Walk is extending outward, like our ever-expanding Milky Way Galaxy. We welcomed Floors Plus Northwest in the Morgan Neighborhood, who are hosting Kat Whitham’s gorgeous florals this month. There was quite the buzz around Ellen Zrimsek’s cold wax encaustics at West Seattle Cellar – one fan had to rush in to see them himself! The snow was a teensy issue for Canna Culture Shop’s new artist Ulises Mariscal, who wasn’t able to bring his art in time, but by this weekend will be up and viewable. In the meanwhile, and always, Canna features artists from their extensive collection of past shows. Saturday’s your day to visit Doll Parts Collective for hand-made, one-of-a-kind Valentine art by Ermine Lamb – edgy, retro and poignant all at once.

In Admiral Neighborhood, we welcomed West Seattle Runner and Art for the Tender to their first Art Walk. See their art all month! Food and Drink specials were at Soprano’s Antico Pizza (hope you took advantage!) and West Seattle Grounds had their always awesome reception, this month for Katie Wilson’s lovely arboreal works, with Valentine’s treats and hot beverages. During the day, you can see Jenna Roby’s watercolors at Zelda Zonk Consignment while you boost your transitional wardrobe.

In the Alaska Junction, love abounded at Fogue Gallery, where friends, family, and new fans of the 15 over-50 artists purchased four works in the first hour of the show. Reeve Washburn’s show ESSENCE // STRUCTURE at Capers is in its final month, with fresh pieces on display amidst the gorgeous home style settings. Dawn Cabigting featured her contemporary expressionism at Snip It’s and Verity displayed photography by Doug Early who shares his artist’s-eye perspective of Puget Sound region beauty. Glenda Weibel’s elegant watercolors are featured at Wild Rose’s all month, and Esther Loopstra’s abstract intuitive art graces the perfectly hued walls at Flying Apron during business hours. Matador’s famous “Art Walk Special” $7 Margarita is baaaaack! Be sure to look toward Brookdale West Seattle as you drive by to catch silk painting by resident Alan Goodin in the front windows. And just in case a trip to Admiral isn’t going to work, you can also see Jenna Roby’s watercolors at Click! Design That Fits all month.

We want to thank all our generous partners for the support they bring the West Seattle Art Walk – Fogue Gallery, Verity Credit Union, Canna West Seattle, Brookdale Senior Living 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 photo recap of Art Walk night for the month of February by volunteer photographers Dan J., Lora R., Jacquie S., Patti C., and Reeve W. Most of the artwork featured will be up all month long, so be sure to visit the above venues during business hours.
