The March Art Walk had a great showing! Businesses were springing back into life, with longer days and good weather ahead to draw more of us out to enjoy our local establishments.
In Admiral District, we welcomed a new business – And Arlen Jewelry, a great addition to the neighborhood! Kevin Broveleit at West Seattle Realty was really happy to see Art Walk in the Admiral Junction grow. WS Realty made a splash this month with Afro providing both the visual art and music for the evening – a perfect and immersive blend of his artistic vision. At West Seattle Grounds, watercolorist Jenna Brechbiel, a 7-year veteran of Art Walk, had everyone celebrating the oncoming of spring with a tasty beverage in hand. The vibrant colors of Rhonda Porter’s art really melded beautifully with Zelda Zonk’s aesthetic.
In Alaska Junction, there was so much to see. The Senior Center corner annex was aglow – transformed into the Reeve Washburn Fine Art Gallery! Revelers celebrated Reeve’s birthday with cupcakes and champagne, surrounded by her smartly staged abstract works. John L Scott was lively with art lovers checking out the playful, politically charged lithographs in front, and the intricate etchings of the Ukrainian artist showing in the rear. Husky Deli had a Girl Scout Artist Exhibition combined with cookie sales and three gifted brownies shared their technique with us. Doll Parts Collective’s new location was comfy and bright with a fanciful collection of earrings on display from Mimi’s Creation Shop.
In the Morgan Junction, Magdalene Cooney’s bright, natural abstracts enjoyed a fabulous crowd at Inner Space Designs. There was a lot of energy at this event, with lots of wine and cheese to be shared. Artist Rick Klu was at Canna with his bold linework-focused drawings and paintings on display. Zeeks Pizza had a good crowd when we stopped by, with a few sales by printmaker Katie Dean.
Our team of volunteer Art Walk photographers did a wonderful job of capturing the ambiance of the evening as well as the art and artists. Thank you, Carole, Meagan, Michelle, Jill, Jacquie, and Helen. We couldn’t do this without you! If you weren’t able to come out, we hope you take a moment to check out photos of the receptions below or on social media. 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.
We want to thank all our generous partners for the support they bring to the West Seattle Art Walk – Northwest Art and Frame, Verity Credit Union, Canna West Seattle, Quail Park, Easy Street Records, West Seattle Realty, our media partner West Seattle Blog and our printing partner Sky Printing.
