May Art Walk

Join us, rain or shine, for May’s Art Walk! We can’t promise blue skies but we can promise beautiful, colorful art work as you stroll though our community. The Art Walk this month will be on Thursday, May 12, from 5-8pm (check venues for specific times).

Art will on display at over 30 participating businesses and you can enjoy a wide variety of “Art Walk Specials” at 13 bars, restaurants and cafes (Check out our Facebook post for more info). So grab a Walking Map at any of the participating businesses below to plan your route!


Special This Month! Two businesses are having their once-a-quarter Art Walk Reception! This is a new option for businesses who prefer to put their energies toward one event a quarter, and who may be off the beaten track. But on really great tracks! Please make a special effort to visit Lake Washington Physical Therapy on Alki Point to see their special group show “Sky,” and The Grove West Seattle Inn in the Alaska Junction as they celebrate their 10th anniversary with a community party and the chance to meet artist Kate Blairstone who designed their just-debuted custom wall paper! See Business Spotlight for more details.


Please note: We will be updating the businesses and their artists as the week goes on. Please check back before May 12, Second Thursday evening!

Can’t Join on May 12? Our photography team will be covering some of the receptions and will post photos and a recap in a post Friday, May 13, on our Facebook account. Check out the social accounts of your favorite exhibiting business – they may post photos or video, too!

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!

Walking Map for May 12 Art Walk!

Featured Q2 Artist! Congratulations to Sonya Rupnick, @sonyaseattle, whose charming, cheeky slice-of-life animal portrait Nice Legs graces the new poster and walking maps. Sonya is represented in West Seattle by Fogue Gallery. See her work in April, May and June, 2022, during business hours and on Second Thursdays. 

Some thoughts from Sonya!

“These paintings are little stories from a world where animals live a cozy, rural life, but one which is also sometimes unexpected and surprising. I try to portray them as living real, interesting lives, which we only see a portion of in each vignette. Each one has its own secret backstory. I want you, the viewer, to make up your own stories about them, and I want you to see yourself or people you know in them.”

Preston Graves INDOORS AND RECEPTION 1pm – 8pm

I grew up in Tempe, Arizona and lived there for twenty years. A lot of my knowledge about drawing came from my grandma Betty when I was a kid. Formally, I learned to draw at Mesa Community College before going to school and earning a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I received a MFA from the University of Oregon in Eugene in 2005 and currently live and work in Seattle. I am a volunteer beach naturalist for the Seattle Aquarium and I am a scuba diver. I love exploring the cold emerald waters of the Salish Sea.
My work is informed by the biological curiosities I encounter while searching the intertidal zones and old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Passages of pattern and growth habits of nudibranchs and lichens become the vocabulary I dwell on in creating these landscapes. I’m interested in the abstract relationships of a system where mark is form and resulting spaces are unfamiliar walks through unexplored terrains.

Anne Anderson, Sandy Nelson and Elsie Nelson Brown INDOORS SHOW + RECEPTION 5-8pm

May 12, John L. Scott will be hosting three local artists for the West Seattle Art Walk at our office in the West Seattle Junction.  Sandy Nelson, a resident of north Seattle as well as her daughter, Elsie and Anne Anderson of North Bend. 

–  Returning for her third show at the West Seattle Art walk, Sandy works with multiple media including paint, silk-screening, and three dimensional art.  I can’t wait to see what she has for us this week.

Learn more about Sandy’s work on her Facebook page.

– Elsie, wowed Art walk attendees last November with her linoleum prints.  She continues to grow in her artistic skill, experimenting with various media to express her passion.  She is delighted to show several expressions of her growing skill set at the event.

– Anne Anderson is an artist who has transitioned from Silk “Canvas” to Oil Painting and now concentrates her efforts working creating innovative jewelry designs working with natural Gemstones. For the Art Walk Anne will be displaying her current palette of finely crafted Jewelry. Paintings: Since 1991, I have focused my creative energy on luminous, vibrant silk paintings. After 26 years and 1,700 paintings, I decided to completely change mediums. In 2015 I expanded to oil painting and am now predominately applying my energy to this very challenging medium. Oil painting is entirely different than silk painting and the change has been a challenging growth opportunity, invigorating me on all levels. Oils open up the opportunity for an outpouring of detail and personality, something I have missed in the silk painting arena. My current body of paintings features enduring creatures, curious, vulnerable beings that want to be loved and admired by everyone. Jewelry: Creating jewelry with natural, valuable, and unusual gemstones has been a passion for many years. I love to “paint” the empty canvas of a woman’s decollete”.

T. Frick Art INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm-8pm

Artist will be debuting a new acrylic paint pour series at the show.


T. Frick is a self-taught artist and female entrepreneur. She is a licensed Landscape Architect with a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Art has always been a key part of T’s life, even as a young child. But it was her training in the architectural field that advanced her drafting, sketching, and painting style. Growing up, T. could be found wandering the backwoods with one of her resident pups or when indoors, she occupied her time with drawing, painting, or other creative hobbies. Her love of nature and the outdoors led to a career in design. When not working, you’ll typically find her creating – colors, shapes, textures, and movement creatively come to mind, manifesting into abstract, typically landscape or floral visions. T. will tell you she dreams in trees. They just seem to end up on the canvas! No painting is ever planned. She begins with freedom of expression and movement, mark-making with no preset destination. After multiple sessions, a painting will eventually begin to reveal itself and navigate towards its intended vision. T. is currently working in oil and cold wax, acrylic, and mixed media in an abstract, expressive style. Her paintings are typically smaller in size with larger works on the horizon. Commissions at any scale are available upon request. Check out T’s website and join her on an artistic journey through her diverse array of artwork! EMAIL:

Envisage Peace

Envisage Peace is a body of work by Georgia Barber that is an emotional response to the attack on the Ukraine in February of this year. Included in these works are pieces honoring great Ukrainian Americans Maya Deren – an ode to her fabulous silent 15 minute film ‘At Land’ and an ode to Nudie Cohen – the great  Ukrainian American who created the image of Country Music with his intricate embroidery and legendary tailoring. Georgia believes her purpose as an artist is to override the ugly in the world with beauty, other images include her ‘Molotov Peace Angel’ dropping love bombs, spirit flora protecting the empty homes of those forced from them and a rolling tank firing plumes of flowers. Georgia creates these pieces with painted and mounted washi paper combining and collaging her original lino cut pattern prints. Her patterns stem from her mixed culture of Māori and English blending kōwhaiwhai with William Morris influences. You can see more of Georgia’s work at Anchored Ship in Ballard and Burien Press.

Food and Drink Special! $7.00 Art Walk Margarita – Just be sure to mention “The Art Walk Special!”





Please note: Artist is not able to attend.

My artwork combines ink line drawing and oil painting on unprimed wood surfaces. I paint on off-cut wood because each piece possesses its own distinct composition that offers unanticipated challenges in the process of both drawing and painting. Unlike traditional paper, canvas, or digital space, scrap wood has no standard, blank white default setting. The human body has the same experience as wood, it never exists as a neutral, static object without context. Both are always aged and dynamically aging, rich with unique imperfections, random dimensions, and unexpected varieties of sizes, shapes, colors, and textures

Brandi Bryan Designs INDOOR SHOW 5pm-7pm

Artist Statement: The world is full of many forms of expression. Some people use words or music to communicate. Brandi uses her paint brush. Her art speaks to the eye in the same way music reverberates the ears… both communicating from her heart and emotions to your own. An artist that is self-taught, passionate, emotional, and driven for greatness. Miss Bryan uses eloquent, bold strokes reflective of the raw beauty of the world around her. Talented and authentic evoking the history of a life lived full. Each moment captured with the power of an expressive canvas and dramatic smear of color combinations. Her range knows no bounds. To own a work by her would be to have a timeless piece of her soul, as she puts herself completely into each work of art.

Priyanka Parmanand INDOOR SHOW 5:30pm-8pm

Priyanka Parmanand is an artist with Women Painters of Washington Gallery, located in the Columbia Tower. She has over a decade of professional art experience including participating in and curating exhibits, public art projects, murals, and corporate paint events.  She is also the founder of Crimson Canvas Arts, a company that mentors budding artists and is present in more than ten schools on the Eastside. She has recently been featured in the Seattle Times and in PublicDisplay.ART, a One Reel publication showcasing local artists. Of her work, Priyanka says: The complexity and boldness of abstract art has always spoken to me. My work is a blend of expressionism and impressionism. I work with acrylic paints with texture and surface being an important aspect of my work. I work in a simple and spontaneous way with palette knives, moving back and forth loosely across the painting surface. I use vibrant colors that push and pull each other to completion. I paint florals because they reinvigorate Hope, the fundamental belief for human existence. It is an expression of all that is different while unifying this diversity through a common denominator of human feelings.  Plus, they are comforting, healing and bring smiles.

Pam Hemmerling INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm-9pm

Becoming an artist later in life and without formal training, I have found that the creative journey surprises and brings joy in unexpected ways. I primarily paint figures, portraits, and abstracts using acrylic paint but rarely start on a smooth canvas. To build up layers and texture I use vintage book paper, fabric, and other ephemera. Living in West Seattle for the past 25 years I continue to be inspired by the ordinary beauty found in each day. Through my art, I hope to touch the viewer in a meaningful way, forming a connection by sharing a compelling narrative of vulnerability and strength.

About the Artists Please note: artists will not be present as exhibit is business hours only.

Karen Johnson

I’m fascinated with exploring the biodiversity of our world. My goal is for my art to serve as a reminder to us all that the world is full of many wonders, and we should share it wisely. My current work is all created on an iPad Pro, mostly just using a finger or two directly on the screen, sometimes using a stylus for detail work. My graphic design background is evident in my art — I thrive on colors, shapes, patterns and textures. Fluid strokes and a sense of movement are the basis for my style. 

Calendars and notecards of my work will be available.

Learn more about Karen’s work at her Instagram , Facebook and website.

Glenda Weibel

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. Several of the pieces in this show are done on archival tissue paper and mounted on a canvas and finished with varnish. This technique maintains the freshness of watercolor, yet sets it free from glass. She also enjoys using traditional watercolor paper and some of those are also in the show.

Laurel Donkervoet

Laurel Donkervoet is a Washington native, born and raised in Puyallup. She moved to Seattle to attend school at Seattle Pacific University seventeen years ago to study apparel design and has been here ever since. She’s lived in West Seattle for the last ten years with her husband and three children where she spends her free time exploring the beautiful world of watercolor painting.
