Life imitates art? Leading off our set of scenes from last night’s West Seattle Art Walk: First, at Keller Williams Realty, Los Angeles-based artist PJ Andrews showed off his character-themed art, including Underdog (above) – several more of his works, and other stops along the Art Walk way, after the jump:
Notice the coyote in one of those pieces. (No, no one sent WSB a coyote alert about it!) Next stop - Alki Arts, where popular photographer Machel Spence was showing and selling some of her amazing views of local fungi:
Along with the visual art, performing art was showcased at Alki Arts too – here’s owner Diane Venti with guitarist Brian Lee and drummer Jeff Hayes:
Back to The Junction, where Seattle Real Estate Associates (WSB sponsor) hosted two photographers, including Rosanne Olson, seen below talking with an Art Walk attendee:
Elsewhere in The Junction, Traci Cilona and Crystal Fosnaugh curated a show at Twilight Artist Collective which focuses on the evolution of women’s bodies from the ’70s to the present:
From the show’s description: “Is the confidence a woman carries in her naturalness empowering, or has the evolution of the female body– from natural to unnatural, made rawness an exotic quality?” Issues addressed by the exhibit focus on such things as plastic surgery, homogenization, and how those factors have played out over time.
The exhibit features work by a variety of artists and in a variety of mediums. The above, by Hillary Gore, is one of the duo’s favorites. Also at Twilight, painter Noa Piper showed off her work “Corpus Mundi: Peruvian Rock Formation”:
And Knows Perfume hosted the opening for (primarily) self portrait artist, Dawndra Budd. In her own words, Dawndra described her work as: “a diary of the past that is being both protected and held back.” Her pictures show her almost superimposed into a variety of scenes, always in the foreground, always with a very evocative scene going on around her.
West Seattle Art Walk happens each month on the second Thursday, 6-9 pm. Keep an eye on the official website – wsartwalk.com.
