Happening now: Last day at the beach for Alki Arts

Seahawks game is over – the potential windstorm is a few hours away – perfect time to get out and go wish Diane Venti well, on the final day for the original location of Alki Arts, which she and husband Tom Wyrick opened more than three years ago. It was expected to be “temporary” – but then suddenly, there they were, celebrating one year in business, then marking two years in business, and gaining fans not only for the art, but also for events both public and private. But two months ago, Diane announced they’d been notified the “temporary” lease was finally ending, and today is their final day – drop by before 7 pm, and/or catch up with them in the future at their other “temporary” location – Alki Arts at Harbor Steps (55 University St. downtown).

    I loved this spot. Whenever I peeked in, there was great art on the walls. Will miss them. :(

    Sad to see them lose their lease. They brought a bit of class to this corner of Seattle -not that we needed it, but they added to the scene. Nice folks and art.
    Art can inspire us. Give us ideas and express our current state. Do hope there will be another gallery or two or more. Art can bring us together and celebrate our diversity.

    She helped many in the local art community by allowing us to use her space/gallery for meetings. Thanks again Diane.

Sorry, comment time is over.
