March Art Walk

Art Walk is tomorrow, Thursday, March 11, 5pm ’til late! It’s supposed to be good weather, perfect for stroooollllling! Did you know more bars, restaurants and cafes are offering “Art Walk Specials?” Check out our Facebook post for more info. 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 on tomorrow night!

Continuing for March: Live broadcasts! Our 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!

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!

Winter 2021 Art Walk: January 14, February 11, March 11

Featured Q1 Artist! Congratulations to Linda Foster whose alcohol ink on clayboard “Bursting Through What Divides Us¨ is our featured art for Q1. Her work is on display at the new Fogue Gallery during business hours in January, February, and March.

About the Artist

Linda Foster has waited a long time to make art. A few years ago, she retired from a career she loved, education, and, before that, was a professional writer. She’s always had great support from her husband Jim, whose response to her latest career in art was, “Go for it!” Linda’s two current passions are spending time with grandkids and making art, and the ultimate is when the two are combined. She loves spending time in nature, especially Washington state forest and ocean beaches. Viewers will find these are recurring themes in Linda’s art, which is often abstract or impressionist landscapes. Her primary media are alcohol inks and acrylics, but she also enjoys pottery and hand-building clay. According to our featured artist, “I am nothing but grateful for a life that is so good.”

Marie Skoor INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm to 8pm

Garden Reflections

“Garden Reflections,” is a small collection of work that has been entirely created during the past year of this pandemic. I was interested in revisiting the bright colors and textures of floral design as well as portraiture. Attention to detail with a return to Victorian elegance and beauty are the focus of these acrylic paintings. The natural world continues to feed my creativity and propels me forward on my artistic journey.

About me… I am an artist living and working in the Seattle area. After graduating from Evergreen with a B.A. in Fine Art I worked in graphic design as well as taught for a non-profit organization spearheaded by Dale Chihuly called “Seniors Making Art.” I now work in advertising and continue to draw, paint, photograph and produce art along with raising my daughter and our almost one year old Golden Retriever.  My art can be viewed at: www.facebook.com/SkoorStudio and on Instagram: @marietheartist10

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about my work at: marietheartist@yahoo.com

Brooke Borcherding INDOORS 11am-8pm

Please note: Artist cannot attend

Brooke is a full time award winning artist working out of Wallingford in Seattle WA.

She began painting in high school 17 years ago and earned a BFA in painting from the University of Oregon in 2010.  She considers herself a self-taught landscape painter, gaining knowledge from plein air peers and prolific output. Her unique style evolved from a desire to investigate human perception in aesthetics, and stimulating our human senses with the color and space we see around us.

“My recent works in acrylic are a contemporary take on traditional landscape outdoor painting and offer a colorful flair to the everyday scene. I focus on broken color, giving a slight pixelated feel to familiar environments, maintaining a lively sense of dynamic energy. These “deconstructions” aim to shed light on the beauty of ordered chaos.”

The time to be happy is now, and the place to be happy is here. – Author: Robert Green Ingersoll

Just in time for Spring, this show at Flying Apron represents the warm vibe of the place where everything seems cozy and joyful; where people meet and make memories. Where they share moments of laughter and love! It is a happy place!

My body of work represents this vibe in bright vibrant colors, which represents positive energy and spirit towards life. My original paintings are acrylic on canvas made mostly with palette knives and bare hands. I paint floral abstracts which are perfect for Spring.  I believe “Flower’ is a symbol of hope. They are comforting and healing and they bring smiles!?

Special Offer! Bookmarks and mini prints are available at Flying Apron

Amanda Whitworth INDOORS + RECEPTION ***NOTE TIME*** 4pm-6pm

From Click!: We love textured art that makes a statement, and Amanda Whitworth’s work fits the bill perfectly. A multifaceted artist whose main medium is wood, her collection of architectural, art deco-inspired pieces are gracing our walls for the month of March, debuting during West Seattle Art Walk on Thursday 3.11.21.

Her current body of work includes a wide range of pieces – from mod multi-panel wall hangings to gorgeous mountain scenes, a sweet nod to the Pacific Northwest. Every piece has the perfect trifecta of color, depth, and texture.

Our show with Amanda is available to view in-store and partially online through early April.

Fold ‘n’ Dye Art Display: Can be seen at Brookdale West Seattle In The Front Windows

Easy to understand, Easy to do, Highly rewarding

These three criteria have guided Alan Goodin’s strategy for helping people make art just about all of his long career. Senior citizens, high school students, special ed students and residents of psychiatric hospitals have all appreciated the opportunities Alan has brought to them over the years. 

Folded lengths of silkspan (that tissue-like silk fabric used for shaping model plane bodies), dampened them with water, and dropped dots of food coloring in interesting patterns. Later they unfolded the works to reveal patterns that combined the look of stained glass with tie-dye. 

Alan’s art journey as a new college graduate with a political science degree in a program that brought college art students to Harborview Psychiatric Hospital as a rehabilitatation and therapy. This work has taken him to the city’s SPICE (School Program Involving our City’s Elderly) program and in-service programs that led to qualifying to teach photography, ceramics and painting/drawing at Ingraham High School near Haller Lake. Alan enjoyed teaching there enough to stay until he retired.

Art surrounds Alan still. Today, art projects and drawings cover the walls of Alan’s room, stack neatly on the floor and dot the refrigerator door. They share room with Alan’s collection of top hats and elaborate headwear, along with a set of hand drums he made himself at a nearby sweat lodge. Alan’s love of art infuses Brookdale West Seattle with an artsy spirit and we love him for it.

Ulises Mariscal INDOORS, 5-7pm

Please note: Artist will not be able to attend

Ulises Mariscal is a Seattle based visual artist and musician in the band Tres Leches.

Artist Statement:
“Trying to communicate a feeling or a thought with a painting can be difficult or almost impossible for an artist, if the artist is not clear or genuine about what it is that they are trying to achieve through their art, regardless of the chosen medium. Through my paintings I strive to communicate the ways I manage to survive. The constant obstacles I go through as a human being are some of the primary subjects of my art and why I paint, the chaos, the uncertainty and the confusion make the type of work I create more humane and empathetic to other people’s struggles.

Whenever I see Paul Horiuchi’s mural in Seattle I experience feelings of hope and excitement hoping that one day our people will be recognized. Anxiety about what that future looks like, excitement to create and to know more artists like myself who are going through similar experiences and create work for peace and equity. I want to convey a message that will make people think critically about issues involving visual art.”
