Late-summer fun: West Seattle Art Walk tomorrow night

The forecast is for clear skies, as far as the eye – or at least the forecaster – can see. Including Thursday night, which will bring the next West Seattle Art Walk, 6-9 pm. Three dozen venues (from Shanti Salon and Spa in the north to The Kenney in the south [both WSB sponsors]) – all listed on the official map, which is here. If you want to plan your stops in advance, you can find some of the venues’ previews on the official WS Art Walk site. The Kenney, for example, spotlights artists Martha Hicks and Cyndy Jensen, along with local framer Fred Madrid bringing a collection of historic West Seattle photos (available for purchase), plus live music – details here. Shanti will show photography by Laurie Z. In The Junction, Nature Consortium e-mailed a special invite for you to stop by its office at 4210 SW Oregon – where Kathleen McHugh‘s art will be on display:

McHugh is a Seattle painter who, NC notes:

… has been featured in exhibits locally, nationally, and internationally in places as near as Youngstown Cultural Arts Center and as far as Slovakia and the Museum of Modern Art. Kathleen’s work explores humanistic themes and serve as ‘visual allegories about identity and relationship[s]’.” She also teaches eco-art classes with Nature Consortium and has been working as a teaching artist in the Pacific Northwest since 1994. On Thursday, she is offering prints from her Banff suite at the West Seattle Art Walk. Local Latin-folk band Ama Trio, featured at this year’s Arts in Nature Festival, will also perform at the office 7:30 – 8:30 pm.

See you tomorrow night along the Art Walk!

    I heard a rumor and I wonder if you can clear it up. I’m not going to lie, part of the reason that I go on the art walk is for the wine. This last month’s art walk there was virtually no wine. I was asking about it and one of the shop owners told me they are cracking down on business and fining them since they don’t have liquor licenses. Do you know if this is true?

      I haven’t heard of anyone being fined but I do believe there are some stringent rules to follow for having alcohol in your business. If you are interested in wine, probably best to stick with the venues where that is part of the night’s official program – West Seattle Cellars, Bin 41, C & P Coffee – TR

    I think it happened on one of the other neighborhood art walks, not the West Seattle one. It’s just sad that the wine/treats part is going by the wayside as it’s part of the whole experience.

Sorry, comment time is over.
