Spring 2021 Art Walk: April 8, May 13, June 10
Featured Q2 Artist! Congratulations to Jenna Roby whose lovely original watercolor, These Small Hours, graces the new poster AND walking maps, available in participating businesses this week. You can see Jenna’s work in April, May and June at Viscon Cellars.
About the Artist
As a creative watercolor artist, Jenna strives to create beauty out of the chaos. Jenna’s paintings are created by vibrant washes of watercolor mixing together to create unique and unpredictable combinations. Then she molds and shapes the image and slowly builds while still highlighting the chaotic first layers. Life is unpredictable, live free.. paint free.
Jenna has been teaching watercolor for the past 6 years at many wonderful locations such as Bellevue College, South Seattle Community College and Daniel Smith in Seattle (current).

Austin Picinich INDOORS + RECEPTION, 5-8pm
Happy Hour at West Seattle Grounds from 5PM-8PM! Always Free Hot Cocoas for kids! Don’t forget to wear your mask!
Artist Statement: I am a 16-year-old acrylic on canvas painter merging realism with my imagination and using bright colors that pop. I have been an avid painter since the age of seven, but just recently started my own business. I took my passion to the next level by tackling large-sized paintings, and my biggest work to date is a 12-foot long by 4-foot tall tropical triptych – although prints of my work are available at many sizes and prices.
This is my first ever month in the West Seattle Art Walk, and I am so excited to be at West Seattle Grounds! I have a wide range of pieces from big to small that will be showing, so stop by to see them all.
Special Feature! Austin will be painting live at West Seattle Grounds during the art walk evening on April 8th from 5-8pm. Come by to see him working on his next painting!

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.
$1 off our famous milkshakes on Art Walk night!

The Weaving of Life’s Chapters Together
“I am a Stronger Here Myself” is the story of feeling apart in the world – a stranger in one’s own space and in the world at large.
“The Solitary Season” is the story of isolation or being alone in the world, where one is one’s own solace and comfort.
“Thoughts on the Faraway” is the story of looking out at the world beyond one’s own immediate surroundings and contemplating the larger beyond, the larger far away.

Marie Skoor INDOORS **NOTE** Business Hours until 6pm
“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: email@example.com

NIGHT, by design
A little play on words, a lot of truth
I have always been a night owl – and always up late doing art
Art has always been a passion of mine
To me, art is therapy
For 2021, I have challenged myself to try one art medium each month to add to my artistic tool kit and potentially find a new favorite medium – hope you can join in on my journey
This year I am also participating in the April West Seattle Art walk at the Wild Roses Antique Shop on California Ave, on April 8th – although, my art will be displayed for the entire month in the store. I would love to introduce myself and give your more background on the art I have created! I’m looking forward to meeting you
My hope is that my art can inspire you to own the night and do the things you’ve always wanted to
The NIGHT is yours.

Naomi Amber Dawn INDOOR SHOW+RECEPTION 11am-6pm
Some thoughts from our friends at Click!
Naomi Amber Dawn’s mesmerizing digital collage work immediately captured our attention with its ethereal, dreamlike imagery.
A photographer by trade, Naomi took her childhood love of collaging to photoshop where she began crafting the surreal scenes that will adorn our walls for the next month. The collection debuts Thursday 4.8.21 during West Seattle Art Walk.
Enchanting flower fields, intergalactic skylines, orcas among the clouds, and magical, majestic mountains are just a few of the subjects explored in the show. It truly is the stuff of dreams and colorful imaginations and will be available to view in-store and online through the first week of May.
Learn more about Naomi’s work at her Instagram.
$5 glass of house red or white, 3-9pm, on Art Walk night.
$1 off of a beer on Art Walk night.
Brookdale West Seattle (Art Walk Partner)
Jeanne Durban, Brookdale Resident WINDOW SHOW
Reception: 4PM – 6PM Wine & Art on the Front Patio!
With The Brush of My Hand
Jeanne’s love for making art may have started with someone else loving her elephant. She remembers drawing an entire circus tableau at age 8, complete with trapeze performers and an elephant, and discovering everyone loved it. Motivated for more, she designed a black-and-white cow with its tongue sticking out and udders in the wrong places, which her mother hung and prized. Jeanne was hooked. She took all the art classes she could find at school. In college she enrolled in a drawing class but soon found her medium to be oils. Jeanne paints plenty of outdoor scenes: patios, gardens, churches in Cabo San Lucas, the Baja California town where she lived for 20 years. Each is a labor of love.

Taylor De Ponte INDOORS+RECEPTION, 6-7pm
Mediums: acrylic paint, ink, polymer clay, decoupage
With a background in acrylic and watercolor portraiture, Taylor brings her comfortable, colorful chaos to a mixed-media approach that is braided between childhood whimsy and the cynicism of adulthood.
Although she maintains her professional life as the owner of a Seattle pet care company and as a pet portrait artist for many of her clients, Taylor understands the importance of new artistic enterprises, and in this case, with a series of tangible mediums donning subverted expectations; the celebration of life and its tiny, everyday failures.
Mark MacDonald, BUSINESS HOURS ONLY
Artist Statement For most of my life I have felt a special connection with nature and believe that we all have a symbiotic relationship with the natural world.
Photography is my means of expressing the beauty and necessity of nature’s diversity in our daily lives. I attempt to capture this experience through my lens, allowing you the same opportunity. These particular photos embody the amazing variety of species in nature.
Due to restricted traveling I have been focusing on photographing primarily in West Seattle.
Learn more about Mark’s work at his website.

Artist Statement: I am a local Pacific Northwest artist who specializes in ready to hang, acrylic on canvas paintings. My diverse and varied work ranges from seascapes and landscapes to abstract flowers and bridges to seasons and people, and much more. Often I surprise myself with the finished product. Painting in my cozy, eclectic art studio in Seattle, WA since 2017, I enjoy adding unique perspectives to my designs to make each piece truly memorable. I love to explore the disappearing element of empathy through ironically colorful expressions. Let’s start a discussion – email me anytime.

GREATER WEST SEATTLE: Gatewood & Arbor Heights
Warren Pope Sculpture: INDOOR+RECEPTION 5pm-8pm Meet the Artist!
Warren Pope makes sculptures.
Stretched and painted canvases over wooden structures are akin to skulls, waves, clouds or fish.
Tangles of wire are ephemeral yet substantive structure out of chaos.
Foam core assemblages resemble architectural models or mini labyrinths.
Always, they satisfy an emotional artistic design quotient as well as challenging the intellectual, political or entertainment aspect of a subject.
African Stories, Politics of Society, Triumph of Technology
Sometimes, the sculptures conflict with each other.
Sometimes, they create a synergy.
Sometimes, they are just fun.
