Something fun to do tonight and/or tomorrow – go admire, browse, maybe even buy local artists’ work! It’s a show and sale organized by artist Genna Draper at West Seattle Church of the Nazarene, where she has a studio.
That’s Genna, above, with the church’s Pastor Shaun Mattson. Genna explains that the show has transformed the church “into a beautiful Art Gallery filled to the brim with high-end, quality art by 7 local artists, a perfumer and Seattle dress designer.”
Part of the show proceeds will be donated to the church, for its community-service work and upkeep, Genna says.
The show/sale is on until 8 pm tonight, continuing 11 am-5 pm tomorrow; other participating artists are Rick Duque, Magdalena Cooney, Scott Gibson, Bryant Goetz, Laura Van Horne, Jennifer Carrasco, and Ruby Trinneer. The church is at the corner of 42nd SW and SW Juneau, and Pastor Shaun is also happy to answer questions about the long-planned development on part of the “park” site south of the sanctuary. He says that depending on the rest of the permit process, work could finally start this summer; the church is still planning to use funds for renovation of its building, and that should start by fall.
