West Seattle Art Walk and more for your Thursday

Every quarter, the West Seattle Art Walk adds new venues – so take a good look at the new map for tonight and the next two months, to see who’s just joined!

While The Junction remains the heart of the Art Walk, new venues are in other neighborhoods too, including south Admiral and Sunrise Heights. Starred venues are hosting artists/art, while those without stars (as well as some with them) are offering food/drink specials to make your night of art exploration even more special.

Here are the highlights for tonight, including:

North of Morgan Junction, Viscon Cellars (WSB sponsor) invites you to be part of the art tonight, with an interactive experience – join featured artist Pamela Resnick:

If you have ever wanted to try painting with oil paints, now is your chance. You will have the opportunity to paint on a 6” x 6” piece of canvas with help and direction.

The subject matter is anything related to wine. There will be some images available to choose from, bring your own or just come paint the colors in abstract form or design. The goal is to get enough 6”x6” “wine” paintings so we can combine them all together into a large mosaic piece of artwork to commemorate the evening.

Art Walk starts at 5 pm and continues “until late,” depending on the venue – go explore, find out about West Seattle businesses you might not have visited before, and have fun!

Also happening today/tonight, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar and inbox:

    Slightly conflicting dates on the WSAW website. It states the Halloween Edition Art Walk date was 10/11, but then it also states it is tonight 10/12. I’ll assume the 10/11 is a typo unless I hear otherwise. 

    Art and Halloween…a cool combination.

      The Art Walk is ****always**** the second Thursday and it IS tonight. We don’t produce the Art Walk website so I have no power to make a correction but I will contact someone who should be able to.

    Hi North of Admiral – I can see the confusion, that was the date the blog post was created, not the date of the Art Walk. We deleted the blog date, thanks for the comment.
