For those of you coming downtown for the first Thursday ArtWalk this week in Seattle, I have a few suggestions for your walking tour.
ArtWalk officially starts at 6pm, but come early and start your night at ChezShea. Chez Shea is a beautifully intimate restaurant and bar in the Pike Place Market. Buy yourself a glass of wine and enjoy one of their delicious appetizers while enjoying the art of Laura Marks.
It's 6pm, and you are now ready to begin the journey south to Patricia Rovzar Gallery. This month she features the work of yours truly. It's my first major solo show, and I can't wait to see how the work looks in her fabulous corner location on 2nd and University.
Next stop: Pioneer Square. Anne Siems is showing at GroverThurston Gallery in Occidental Square. The newest work looks phenomenal. Anne has been inspirational to my own development as an artist.
Finish off the night at the Collins Pub, base of Smith Tower on 2nd Ave. Enjoy your beer and pub grub while checking out the "fetish dolls" of Shaun Doll.
There is loads of art to visit this month, and I would love to post it all. Stop downtown another time during February and see what else is up.
Hope to see you on Thursday night!
