Nov 14 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

On Thursday, November 14th Gayle Sammons and John L Scott West Seattle are pleased to be hosting local artist Susan J. Elliott during the monthly West Seattle Art Walk.

Known for her whimsical style which draws inspiration from Dia de Los Muertos culture and the animal kingdom, Susan’s art work sparks the imagination and tickles the eyeballs.

In addition to her wall art, Susan features her artwork on cards, tote bags, gift wrap, and journals. She is also known for her whimsical upcycled journals highlighting old book covers given a second life. Susan’s work truly brings joy and smiles to all who see it.

During the art walk, guests will be able to enjoy Susan’s whimsical and endearing wall art while browsing through her stationary and accessories. A wonderful way to support and enjoy a local artist while picking up some unique and creative gift items.

While browsing, guests will be treated to wine, non-alcoholic beverages and a selection of tasty treats. A fantastic way to spend an evening in the Junction.
