Tonight’s West Seattle Art Walk highlighted imagination and whimsy as well as boldness and brightness in the wide range of art on display around the peninsula. Laura Castellanos was at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor) – you might recognize her “bummerbunny.” Bright night overall at Click!
Kate is an accomplished illustrator and also works in collage, using decorative and hand-painted paper. You’ll find some of her children’s books on sale at CAPERS, too. Next Junction stop – ArtsWest:
Encaustic abstract artist Kate Fluckinger is one of the artists who are “Spinning Straw Into Gold” in the ArtsWest Gallery‘s current exhibition. A bit off the beaten Junction track, Joya Marie was the featured artist at the Nature Consortium offices, showing her linocuts:
Live music there, too, from Bando-Rio:
Finally, two stops outside The Junction – Art Walk night is always busy at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), with Wine Club and a featured artist – this time, Chris Hunter:
His “day job” is at Alki Beach Tattoo, but he’s been painting longer than he’s been tattooing, and that’s what C&P is showcasing – watercolor and ink paintings and drawings. Last but by no means least, a stop at Stephanie Hargrave‘s South Admiral studio to say hi to Jean Lovejoy, who drew a full house of fans for her retrospective:
Last night we featured Stephanie’s story about Jean, who’s going strong at 91. Remember, most venues display their artists’ work all month long, so even if you couldn’t get out tonight, you’ve got time to wander around and enjoy it in the weeks ahead. Next West Seattle Art Walk: March 10.
