Don’t forget, this Wednesday (October 3), Wallingford will host its last Art Walk for 2012. Wednesday should be a fine, Autumnal evening to enjoy “Night of 1,000 Unicorns — A Night of Art, Music & Magic” which takes place all around the neighborhood between 6-9pm. Here are the deets from the organizers:
Come out to the final Wallingford Art Walk of the year and celebrate Art, Music & Magic with us!
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.
Among the artists and musicians lending their talents on this magical night will be:
CUTZ Meridian will feature the work of Christopher Thomas Raine, Reverse Glass Artist.
Caffe Appassionato Wallingford 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!
Seattle Mosaic Arts 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!

To see Hera performing her amazing artwork live, visit Uptown Espresso during Art Walk then stroll along the Art Walk path to All City Paint Supply to see her paintings for sale.

The colorful twist on photo realism is something that needs to be witnessed in person.

After working my way up through the ranks of the art department, I moved on to directing, shooting and editing. In addition to holding a B.A. in Theatre with a focus in directing, I’m also an accomplished composer and musician and a seasoned still photographer. I have also made a living as an animator and graphic designer. I believe the sum of my diverse skills brings a uniquely powerful set of tools to the table. It is my mission to contribute to the world by making quality film and television that makes a difference.”
That’s the second time today I spelled “photography” with only three syllables.
