Steps from the beach, Alki Bathhouse celebrated the exhibit “Beach Structures” last night during the October edition of the West Seattle Art Walk, 41 venues this time around, and we made it to eight of them last night. At the Bathhouse, David W. Simpson is the artist:
He’s also known for cyanotype prints (the image behind him is a print of the same structure), and he’s teaching a class in that medium at the Bathhouse Studio on October 30th, 10:30 am, call 206-684-7430 to register. Another of last night’s most unusual shows, WTF?! Guys and Dolls and Zombies at ArtsWest - here’s artist Kate Vrijmoet attacked by her zombie children tonight in front of her giant zombie paintings:
Click ahead for another unusual sight at ArtsWest – plus more stops around the Art Walk map:
Also from the ArtsWest show, that’s sculptural artist Paul D. McKee next to his “trophy wife” in the center of his new installation, meant to call into question the idea of the American Dream through the examination of “traditional masculine symbols within hetero-normative roles.” On next to one of the southernmost stops on the WSAW map:
On the south end of the West Seattle Art Walk, there’s The Kenney, where acrylic artist and Kenney resident Gladys Herreid posed in front of some of her work. She told WSB contributing photographer Ellen Cedergreen that she began painting in high school and has never looked back. The Kenney also held a bazaar during Art Walk to raise money for its Life Care Fund:
That’s Barbara Green, Kenney resident, at the table. The fund covers the costs of residents who no longer can pay – about $400,000 a year – and it’s replenished by various fundraisers throughout the year. Now back to The Junction, and Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor):

That’s Andrea Yajko with one of her creations at Hotwire, where visitors also got a taste of some of the wine to be offered at the upcoming Furry Faces Foundation fundraiser (here are preview details in the WSB Forums). Further south on California SW, Billy King‘s work is on display at Brunette Mix (WSB sponsor):
Also in The Junction, Twilight Artist Collective opened a truly sweet show – with candy-inspired art – like the creations by Kelly Lyles:
(Kelly is also renowned for her art car, as you’ll see if you check out her website at kellyspot.com.) On south now to the new location of M3 Bodyworks (WSB sponsor), 5236 California SW, where you can now see Nadja Haldiman‘s work:
And nearby at C & P Coffee - it was a night for wine, music and art like this creation by Elizabeth Bachmann:
C & P is our newest WSB sponsor and has all sorts of events throughout the month – their frequently updated events calendar is online here. Meantime, the next West Seattle Art Walk is coming up November 11th, and you can watch for updates at the official Art Walk site, wsartwalk.com – remember that many of the exhibits are up throughout the month following Art Walk, so you can use the “walking map” as a guide to enjoying art (and local West Seattle businesses!) just about any time.
