A night to celebrate, for many along the path of last night’s West Seattle Art Walk: Above, the trio behind Twilight Artist Collective, Mary, Cheryl, and Erin, celebrating Twilight’s sixth anniversary (did you read the story of how they began?). Also along the way, many marking new beginnings now, or soon, like Miranda Krone, whose culinary-art achievements were part of the fare as C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) hosted not only an Art Walk stop but also its monthly Wine Club:

Miranda is the chef who will soon open Meander’s in the former Jade West CafĂ© space north of Morgan Junction (here’s our December report). Another brand-new entrepreneur marked a milestone last night:

That’s Monica Skov, hosting her first Art Walk night at month-old West Seattle Fabric Company in the Admiral District, showcasing fabric art, and getting ready for classes to start – possibly as soon as mid-February. Meantime, the shop that preceded WSFC at 2210 California SW celebrated its first January Art Walk in The Junction:

Those are some of the wire birds by Shelli Markee on display now at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor). Flying up to Alki, Seal Sitters‘ Robin Lindsey was one of the featured artists at Alki Arts:

Robin’s wonderful wildlife photos were at centerstage, along with Carol Braden‘s whimsically covered guitars – here’s Carol with Alki Arts’ Diane Venti:

And they had a surprise musical guest, rustled up at the last moment – the renowned Carrie Akre:

On to the other end of the Art Walk route, The Kenney had music too – with barbershop quartet The Country Squires:

One of The Kenney’s featured artists was resident Mona Elliott, who posed with her painting of Mount Rainier:

Back to The Junction – photographer Machel Spence‘s mushroom magic graced the wall at Coffee to a Tea with Sugar:

She posts new work on Flickr just about every day. One block south at ArtsWest, photojournalist Roger Ressmeyer, whose work is highlighted in the “Beginning of Totality” show:

And we made one more stop, back up in Admiral – Shanti Salon and Spa (WSB sponsor), displaying the paintings of Brian Forrest, whose work is expressionist in influence; this one is titled “Minstrel“:

Remember, most of these displays will be up all month – so you can enjoy art any time – between now and the next West Seattle Art Walk, which is on February 10th, 6-9 pm as always. Watch for information.


  1. Wow, what an awesome and impressive array of talent we have here in WS! Sorry I missed the ArtWalk this time – will definitely mark my calendar for next month!
