Our first of two West Seattle Art Walk roundups focuses on Junction highlights: At 94 years young, West Seattle painter Jeanne Hedington was one of last night’s stars on the June edition of the Art Walk. She was at Windermere West Seattle with some of her many, many creations. This one is titled “I Dreamed of My Grandpa Last Night”:

Hedington, by the way, has a special reason to remember the 1962 World’s Fair, as Seattle marks its half-century anniversary: She worked that year as a portrait artist for Disney and produced a huge body of work.

At Bin 41 wine shop, there was of course wine, but there were also photographs, by Mike Russell:

The Bin describes his photos as “a refreshing reminder of the beauty that’s all around us.” More Junction Art Walk stops ahead:

At Twilight Artist Collective, it was opening night for Matt Calcavecchia‘s “Mama’s Boy: Paintings of Motherdom.” In our photo, he’s in front of a painting of his mother, with a painting of his son Marcus over his left shoulder.

A popular stop last night – Sound Advertising Group‘s temporary headquarters inside the former Petco/future 4724 California space:

As reported here earlier this week, Sound Ad Group has launched the “West Seattle Podcast.” Note that it already has its own logo-wear:

And we checked in at WSB sponsor Click! Design That Fits, where Hannah Viano‘s paper-cut art continues to be available for viewing and purchase:

Her works at Click! are from “Hydrodynamics” – studies of the sea.

Remember that most West Seattle Art Walk venues keep their featured artist’s work up all month long, so even if you didn’t get out last night to see it, you can check it out another time. Later this morning – highlights from the Admiral District’s Art Walk venues and artists.

  3. Thank you Jeanne and WSB for bringing back memories of my grandfathers, and tears to my eyes. What a great way to start the Father’s Day weekend.
