This month’s West Seattle Art Walk brought us a beautiful August sunset as a wonderful backdrop for an evening of art, music, and dining. The energy of the evening was relaxed and carefree, and West Seattle children were out making art of their own at the Mystery Made Tie Dye T-shirt-making event which was a huge hit: they were almost sold out of t-shirts by 6:30!
At Verity, photography highlighted the rich Asian heritage of Seattle. At COMPASS, there were paintings of octopi galore up for display. Glass art at Capers featured the bluest blues, with cyanotypes and PNW sky and seascapes to match. At ArtsWest, theater and art lovers came out for Felicia Loud’s play, Here There be Dragons, a warm, soulful tour de force. In the lobby, Barry Johnson’s incredible paintings set the stage for the play and music.
KeyBank Plaza hosted Art of Music, with the upbeat rhythms and vocals of The Nathan and Roz Duo, while Epiphany of Time played for diners at Soprano’s Antico. Nathan and Roz captured the spirit of the evening with the addition of a few children’s songs into their playlist for the younger art walkers to enjoy.
The team of Art Walk photographers did a wonderful job of capturing the ambiance as well as the art and artists. If you weren’t able to come out, we hope you take a moment to check out video clips and photos of the receptions below. Or, better yet, come see the shows yourself. Most of the artwork featured will be up all month long, so do find time to visit these venues.
