West Seattle-based food writer Kim O’Donnel not only autographed her new “Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook” at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor) during the November West Seattle Art Walk last night – she made snacks, too, and shows/explains them all in our video clip. Among them: Kale chips. From Click!’s new Junction location, we headed over to see the guest artists featured by two more WSB sponsors, who are both along 42nd SW just north of SW Edmunds:
Filmmaker Leah Warshawski guested at Mural; the photo’s from her work in Rwanda, subject of a documentary-in-progress; steps away at Wallflower Custom Framing and The Shooting Gallery, you’ll find the photos of Sara Tro (at right, with Wallflower proprietor Courtney Sievertson):
From there, it was across the peninsula to Westwood’s Barton Street Lofts. This is artist and author David Bloomfield (aka Starheadboy) posing with his art:

Bloomfield told WSB contributor Ellen Cedergreen that his work is a mixture of realism and characters; he’s working on a children’s book in that style (available soon at Blurb.com) to help young children with their self-esteem. Speaking of kids, they came out to the Barton Street Lofts show too: Artist and illustrator Brandon Baker poses with young patron Zoe, who shows off her newest purchase (one of Brandon’s).
Hopping back to The Junction, Twilight opened Northwest Anvil 2, Survey of Contemporary NW Ironwork.: Its curators are Lisa Geertsen and Andy Blakney. The Caveman pictured between the two belongs to Andy:
The West Seattle-based wife and husband team teach, too, and their work is hanging alongside their students’ through 12/4 at Twilight – here’s “Peacock” by student Kayla Blincow:
The forged pieces drew attention from all ages:
Some of the artists explained to Ellen that the metal-smithing community readily shares craft and techniques, creating a strong sense of camaraderie.
One more Junction note – we found West Seattle Hi-Yu‘s Carol Winston with Hi-Yu fundraising ornaments on sale during the West Seattle Family Zone-sponsored show upstairs at the Senior Center of West Seattle:
Next West Seattle Art Walk, December 9th – keep an eye on wsartwalk.com for previews.
