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.
