WALLINGFORD NEIGHBORHOOD ART WALK
NIGHT OF 1,000 UNICORNS
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3RD
The October Art Walk is the final Art Walk of the 2012 Season here in Wallingford and we’re planning a big, magical, fun send-off! Celebrate the magic and mystery of Autumn with “Night of 1,000 Unicorns – A Night of Art, Music & Magic” on the streets of Wallingford on Wednesday, October 3rd, from 6-9PM.
The streets of Wallingford have been made magical with the addition of glittering stars, unicorns and lights! Come out tonight in costumes if you like – unicorns, dragons, faeries, magicians and more are welcome!
Among the artists and musicians lending their talents on this magical night will be:
Johnston Architects (100 NE Northlake Way) presents Portraits - A Series by artist Justin Kane Elder. “The painting process involves deconstruction and reassembly. I disassemble an image into basic geometric shapes and then rebuild it with those shapes. Each piece is an additive process formed by amassing different layers of media. Similar to the way a builder constructs a home, the portrait becomes the house built from this process. The final result is a dynamic visual display of color and form.”
At the Wallingford Center (1815 N 45th St.) stage on the patio, the “dynamic duo” of Tallulah Assaf and Sylvia Bates who lead Catch the Cat will perform kid-friendly rock at 5:30PM, Nate Jester – Ace of Illusions will fascinate you at 6:00PM and guitarist and vocalist Jeremy Serwer will make his musical magic at 7:00PM.
Windows Art Gallery (4131 Woodland Park Ave. N) is featuring Tom Talbott’s amazing photos. Tom has spent the past year photographing birds from Northern California to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. Special guest Valerie Piacenti will be singing with pianist Nick Moore at Window’s Art Gallery at around 7:00 Valerie leads a sound circle at Present Sense and has sung on Broadway and with the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle and London. Nick is a local arranger/composer and keyboard performer, and was the keyboard chair for the “Almost Live Band.”
KERF Gallery (in Wallingford Center, 1815 N 45th St.)is featuring THE PICTURE SHOW with Paintings by Susan B. Pope and Sheila M. Scott, featuring an artist’s reception Wednesday, October 3, 2012 during the Wallingford Art Walk from 6 to 9 PM. Show runs through October 31.
Susan Pope describes her work: “The process of creating a 3 dimensional illusion on 2 dimensional surface is magical to me. I am attracted to scenes and images in nature that capture, mood, lighting, texture and color so effectively that they transport the viewer to a place or time in their memory.”
Sheila Scott is a Seattle painter with a degree in Fine Art and Secondary Education from the University of Washington. Following a career as graphic artist, illustrator, and calligrapher in San Diego, California, she returned to Seattle and pursued the art of sumi-e, Asian ink painting. For the past five years she has studied shuji (Japanese calligraphy) with sensei Pam Lee to enhance her painting skills in both sumi-e and oils. The discipline and beauty of Asian calligraphy invites her to diligent practice and goal of ‘dancing with brush’.
Tea House Kuan Yin (1911 N 45th St.) is showing the works of Joe Lavely.
CUTZ Meridian (4515 Meridian Ave N) will feature the work of Christopher Thomas Raine, Reverse Glass Artist http://www.chrisraineartgallery.com/
Seattle Mosaic Arts (1325 N 46th St.) is proud to be showing the work of local wonderful mosaic artist, Kelley Knickerbocker. Kelley is an internationally recognized mosaic artist who travels all over the world teaching workshops as well as working on her own fine art and architectural mosaics. We are so lucky to have her in our backyard, to have her teach in our studio (upcoming workshop on Radical Dimensions in Glass Mosaics in October for those of you interested in getting this chance to study with her) and to have her hang her beautiful mosaics on our Gallery Wall! Also, for September even though it wasn’t an official “Art Walk” month, we are showing the stunning and deeply moving works by another local and famous mosaic artist, Jo Braun. Stop by before October to see this work too!
Caffe Appassionato Wallingford (1218 N 45th St.) will be showcasing the paintings of Holly Siberg for Octobers Art Walk. Not only is she a local Wallingford artist, but she is also a barista here at Caffe Appassionato! We are also going to have a special that night with $3 draft beers. Looking forward to another great Artwalk night!
Dandelion Salon (1318 N. 45th St.) will be showing the art and design work of Aimee Rush
H&R Block’s (1717 N 45th St) artist is Tana Knight
Seamonster Lounge (2202 N. 45th St) will feature the photography of Laura Glitter. Also, SHELITA will perform from 7-8:30
CMA Gallery (4501 Interlake Ave N #9) Artist Her current works were produced in the last two years by recycling her older, MFA thesis printed works, originally 8 feet tall. In order to progress to new work, the logical choice is to deconstruct the past work. She selects smaller scale compositions, rework the layers and surfaces by adding pieces, color, materials and making complex incisions.
The Grizzled Wizard (2317 N. 45th St) always features some of the best art in the neighborhood, but they are easy to overlook. For October, it’s Wallingford’s own Richard Lemmert.
For the month of October Chocolati on 45th Street (1716 N 45th St.) will be featuring photographer Daniel Lupastean from Radauti, Romania. Daniel primarily focuses on wild life and portrait photography, and will be featuring an array of his prized pieces in our cafe. To see previews of Daniel’s work, please visit http://www.dlsnapshot.com
Fuel Coffee’s (1705 N 45th St.)October artists are Aaron Winnenberg & Frend. They are having a reception and will be there to meet people.
Blue Star Cafe & Pub (4512 Stone Way N) will feature artist Dan Wend, painter. He will also have a reception during the Art Walk. www.danielwend.com
All City Paint Supply (4112 Stone Way N.) is featuring Live Art with Hera. To see Hera performing her amazing artwork live, visit Uptown Espresso (2300 N. 45th St.) during Art Walk then stroll along the Art Walk path to All City Paint Supply to see her paintings for sale. While Hera is a classically trained artist, her portraits are layered with aerosol (spray) paints. This graffiti art medium she chooses to embrace suits her art form well. The colorful twist on photo realism is something that needs to be witnessed in person.
Many artists will be featured throughout the neighborhood; Art Walkers are encouraged to visit us here often for updates and to download and print their Wallingford Art Walk Maps.
Come out to the final Wallingford Art Walk of the year and celebrate Art, Music & Magic with us!
