The West Seattle Art Walk really isn’t a one-night event – for most venues and artists, it’s part of a month-long exhibit. “A Feast for the Eyes: Food in Art” at ArtsWest – which includes some of longtime WSB contributing photojournalist Christopher Boffoli’s internationally enjoyed “Big Appetites” work – opened the day before Halloween, but the reception highlighted last night’s Art Walk festivities. That’s Christopher above; also part of “A Feast for the Eyes,” Kristen Reitz-Green:
Jere Smith‘s work is featured as well. Along with ArtsWest, WSB’s Katie Meyer made two other Junction stops last night – photos ahead (and a reminder about the big holiday-season Art Walk!) …
Wallflower Custom Framing (WSB sponsor) is one place you can see art year-round – since art is Wallflower’s business! And Art Walk night is always a celebration:
This time, proprietor Courtney Sievertson‘s gallery featured the work of painter Kari-Lise Alexander:
She describes her work as exploring “themes of independence and innocence framed within references to her Norwegian heritage. Young ethereal women seem to drift among classic Norwegian rosemaling, creating thought-provoking and engaging pieces.” Like these:
Wallflower is on the street level of Mural Apartments, fronting 42nd SW across from the south end of Jefferson Square. On the other end of The Junction, the office of Heidi Horwitz, DDS (WSB sponsor), at California/Genesee, spotlighted art last night too – wearable art! – with the jewelry of Katherine Dancer:
The next West Seattle Art Walk is the holiday-season edition on December 13th, and that means prime time for holiday shopping; most Art Walk participants have work available for purchase (and before then, you can also stop into a participating venue and check out what’s on display and how to buy it and/or contact the artist). Keep an eye on the official site at wsartwalk.com as well as the Art Walk Facebook page.
