(Photos by Nick Adams for WSB)
Dozens of businesses opened their doors again last night for the September edition of the West Seattle Art Walk, and we have a mini-photo tour of several stops this morning, from WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams. Twilight Artist Collective in The Junction opened its new “Cryogenic Nude America” exhibition – top photo is “The Last Cookout,” and it’s by The Collagemonauts, who are in the next photo – from left, Craig van den Bosch, Marty Gordon, and Tim Manthey:
Nick also visited Admiral and Alki venues – with sights including this:
Nine more Art Walk scenes ahead – and remember, most installations up through the month, so you still have a chance to see them even if you weren’t out last night!
The Barbies above are at Mind Unwind in the Admiral District, in Anna Hurwitz‘s installation “Stitch & Bitch.” As a gallery and event/classes venue, MU always has art, but is especially lively on Art Walk night:
From left, that’s J. Conrad Nivens, MU proprietor Krystal Kelley, and RC. Mind Unwind is at 2206 California SW. On the other side of California, Barbara Trentalange was the featured artist at Brent Amacher‘s State Farm Insurance office (2319 California SW):
Back up to The Junction, Sound Ad Group (aka the ex-Petco building) was open again, with the Rock-afire Explosion animatronics continuing to draw the curious, like Erin Barzen:
Sound Ad Group also featured artist James A. Arnold, who was putting the finishing touches on his exhibit:
Also in The Junction, painter Ann Duffy was showcased at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor):
A hallmark of Art Walk night is getting a chance to talk to the artist – Duffy is at left below with Margaret Opalka and Pat Opalka (Click! co-proprietor John Smersh is in the background at right):
Now, north to the beach, where Alki Arts threw its customary all-out Art Walk night party, including live music with guitarist Geoff Kraus:
Featured artist was Daniel Rey:
If you haven’t been to AA, it’s at 2820 Alki SW – the only gallery on the beach:
West Seattle Art Walk is always 6-9 pm, second Thursday of the month, so the next one is October 11th – mark your calendar now, and keep an eye on both the official website and the WSAW Facebook page for previews and updates.
