West Seattle Art Walk, June report #2: In the Admiral District

Admiral District businesses made good on their promises to crank up the volume for this month’s West Seattle Art Walk this past Thursday night. Here’s what we found at four stops along the way. Top photo is from Mind Unwind, the gallery/education/collaboration space at 2206 California SW – where Brendan Ray Fraser was working on a painting that, shall we say, was a little too nude for WSB standards, so we took our camera upstairs for the aerial view. Three more stops ahead:

About a block north, two artists were at Zatz A Better Bagel (WSB sponsor):

That’s Danitra Hunter with her recycled art, while Jaki Reed posed with her black-clay-tile crows.

Vessa Gayle‘s work, inspired by the ocean, graced the walls of Brent Amacher‘s State Farm office:

And at Shanti Salon and Spa (WSB sponsor), we found Maura Warshawski from BirdWerks:

It’s a partnership between Maura and sister Leah. Next month’s Art Walk, meantime, will be July 12th.

    Heh, before I really focused in on the top pic, and read the text, my first thought was that it was from a security cam, and “Oh no! A robbery!” or something! =:-O

    Why the “standards”? It is art. If it is beautiful there should be no shame in showing it.

      P – we don’t show nudity, art or otherwise. Not a matter of shame, a matter of being a G-rated website. In this case, our photographer explains, the subject matter was topless/nude centerfold photography. Beautiful, I’m sure, but not G-rated! – TR

    I’m with P; shameful that nudity in art is ever NOT G-rated
    sorry to have missed this; I was at WS Artwalk at Alki Arts; is Alki not included in WS Artwalk?

      If you’re on the Art Walk list, you’re part of Art Walk. Alki Arts does such awesome stuff all the time – the Alki Bathhouse has participated in the past too. With more than three dozen venues, we can’t get to everybody every time – this time we just happened to break out our coverage into Junction (we had a contributor roaming there) and Admiral District (because they made a big deal at their last meeting about increased participation). – TR

    Diane Venti, owner of Alki Arts, always takes tons of pics; I’m sure she’d be happy to share; but she might be too shy to offer unless asked
    actually I brought up the question at Admiral meeting about getting more involved in Artwalk; glad to see it’s happening, and getting coverage

Sorry, comment time is over.
