Seattle Art Walks

One thing that I particularly adore about Seattle is how much art we have. So our art museum isn't the largest venue, especially when compared with giants like the MOMA or the Met, but most of the neighborhoods within Seattle host art walks once a month. In Ballard, it's the second Saturday of every month. Head to Pioneer Square on the first Thursday of each month to walk around to galleries, and other venues-turned-galleries to enjoy local art, and inevitably some drinks and snacks for free.

The art varies from traditional oil on canvas and photography, to multi-media to letterpress. My friend Danielle, of BDR Studio, showcased her letterpress creations as well as some photos that she took while we were in Portugal (pictured above).

I went to quite a few over the holidays, but have missed the last couple months. With spring on the way, I'm looking forward to regularly attending these (without a heavy winter coat and an umbrella)- they're not only fun, they're a great way to learn about local artists and cool shops & galleries in the area.

// Are there art walks in your neighborhood? What are some fun neighborhood events in your area?


  1. This is such a great way to get out and see unique local art. I do think we have something like this around here. Thanks for the reminder that I need to check it out! :)

  2. Sometimes they're a little *too* unique ;)
    I want to try to find more of these when I travel- it'd be interesting to see if styles vary with geographical region (yes, I'm a nerd).
