Forecast looks promising for tomorrow night’s West Seattle Art Walk – not always something you can count on by the time we get to November. So you can plan ahead, here are a few previews. At Twilight Artist Collective in The Junction (4306 SW Alaska), West Seattleites Andy Blakney and Lisa Geertsen are curating “Northwest Anvil III: A Survey of Contemporary Northwest Ironwork,” opening during the Art Walk, 6-9 pm. The exhibition features work by Northwest Blacksmith Association members. Organizers explain: “Our goal for putting this show together is to bring awareness to the community the possibilities that lie within the art of forged metal.”
At C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) tomorrow night, it’s a doubleheader:
Barbara Noonan will display paintings. And it’s the monthly Wine Club event. C & P is at 5612 California SW.
At The Kenney (WSB sponsor), you’ll enjoy jazz as well as art:
That’s singer Julie Cascioppo, who is scheduled to perform (7125 Fauntleroy Way SW).
At Knows Perfume, proprietor Christen Cottam is having a food drive from Art Walk night till 5 pm Sunday. She says, “Food for the two-legged and the four-legged is welcome and much appreciated. Customers can bring a big bag of food (using their best judgment), or a gift card to Safeway, Petco, Costco or the like (minimum $15) and will receive a a card for 15% off their next visit to Knows.” (4536 California SW)
Want to buy art even more than look at it? You can do that most places, but not the kind of art – vintage! – you’ll find at the Easy Street Records flea market “Cheapside Review,” including posters, as explained here, during Art Walk.
Across the street at Cupcake Royale, there’s a music tie-in – Julie Peña’s photo essay with “early photos of the locally-grown Brandi Carlile Band,” according to the announcement we received.
The announcement continues: “These images explore the personalities of the musicians and captures some moments behind the red ropes before their artistic success was a known quantity. These images are intended to appeal to fans and non-fans alike as it discusses the changes implicit in an artist’s rise to fame.” Julie will be there 6-8:30 pm during the Art Walk.
BONUS: In North Delridge, the West Seattle Tool Library opens its doors on Art Walk night – the second Thursday – for “Ask an Expert,” a unique event to empower do-it-yourselfers. 6-8 pm in their location on the east side of Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW), you’ll find free expert advice, this month from Mighty House Construction, Gray Sky Farms, and Solar Epiphany.
