Weather’s great, and here’s your excuse to get back out into it – the revamped West Seattle Art Walk is on! Three of the two-dozen-plus places you can go:
SOUTH SEATTLE COLLEGE ART GALLERY: While on campus earlier today, we photographed that corner of the group show “Reaction,” which you can visit at the SSC gallery tonight. (6000 16th SW)
From there, southwest to The Junction, you’ll find many venues and artists:
WALLFLOWER CUSTOM FRAMING: Lupe Carlos (above) is the artist whose exhibit is “Wing and a Prayer.” The gallery’s announcement quotes him as saying, “The images in this exhibit are illustrations of stories from my life. However, I prefer not to relay exactly what these images mean to me. I prefer having the images trigger stories the viewer creates out of these pictures.” (4735 42nd SW)
Part of the Art Walk’s new incarnation is the chance to enjoy food and beverage specials. If you love wine, here’s where to go:
VISCON CELLARS: Wine and art are both on the menu tonight at the award-winning winery (a WSB sponsor) north of Morgan Junction. For Art Walk night, tasting fees are waived. And while you’re there enjoying winemaker Ben Viscon‘s work, you can also see paintings by Lindsay Peyton. (5910 California SW)
The full venue list for tonight’s Art Walk – where you’ll see art and where you can find food/beverage specials – is here. End times are now “late” – at least 9 pm.
