You’re invited to a free party tonight to celebrate Seattle’s art-walk scene – it’s on Capitol Hill, but it gives you the chance to vote in a contest with two West Seattle-staked artists! It’s the City Arts Magazine quarterly “Best of Seattle Art Walk Awards” event. Unlike most awards events, the awards aren’t predetermined; tonight’s attendees get to choose. At left, Sarah Loertscher is a finalist for her geometric-jewelry showing at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor), which provided the photo. Also among the six finalists, Carla G, for her paintings shown at Carmilia’s. The party’s at 8 pm at FRED Wildlife Refuge art center, 127 East Boylston (map), and if you’re 21 or older, you can get in free by RSVP’ing to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning artist gets $1,000 and a City Arts profile; the magazine is sponsoring the awards each quarter, with nominations coming from the businesses and galleries participating in a dozen art walks around the city, including West Seattle.
