Camille's Caravan of Camels at Carmilia's

April 10, 2014

Camille Shumann is a true Pacific Northwesterner. Born and raised in Seattle, she now lives in Portland where she studies studio art at Lewis & Clark college. Her work is a reflection of her everyday life and travels, which often includes flowers, animals, people, color, and pattern. While she marvels at organic line, texture, and color within biological structures, she is also very inspired by the systematic patterns of textiles and other man-made products. Much of her work is a celebration of beauty and culture.

This particular series stemmed from my fascination with the strange and seldom used collective nouns used to describe groups of animals. It became a sort of addiction and I found myself unable to stop searching for new ones! I finally decided that they must be drawn, and thus a series was born.

Carmilia's is located at 4528 California Ave SW.

Group show at The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast

 April 10, 2014


We are pleased to have Jon Taylor and his versatile styles here again this month for West Seattle Art Walk! He has contributed more sculpture and a new panel piece that is a must-see!

Jon Taylor is a lover of a variety of media. He has spent several years learning techniques in painting, printmaking, film and digital photography, model-making, sculpture, and as an architect has worked with watercolor, acrylic, model-building, printmaking, tactile artwork... you name it! In 2000, Jon started Taylor Art House to make a web-based portfolio of his artwork. Jon's work displayed here at The Gatewood will be as diverse as his experience and we are very excited to have him on board!

See more of Jon's work at www.seattleprintarts.org.





Mike Oncley resides in Seattle, makes radical pop art and has a dog named Wayne. Mike has a background in graphic design and has worked artistically with musicians and designers. This experience, paired with his charismatic and creative demeanor, most definitely represents his fun and funky style. We will be showing a collection of Mike's works, consisting of a mix of mediums, this Thursday at The Gatewood.





Abby Taylor is also a Seattle native and a maker of all things awesome! An extraordinary cake-maker, Abby owns her own bakery (Abby's Hot Buns Bakery, hotbunsbakery.blogspot.com), knits and makes beautifully crafted quilts that we will have displayed here at The Gatewood this Thursday!





Seattle native Clare Johnson  was trained in London, has been published for her writing and has won several awards for her unique and fascinating artwork. We are pleased to have Clare back to do some demoing with us at The Gatewood this Thursday!



Born in Seattle, Layne Cook has been seriously pursuing her passion for painting since 2001 when she and her husband decided to quit their jobs and partake on a 6-month driving adventure across the US and Canada in a VW Eurovan. Her enthusiasm, commitment and incredible talent are clearly evident in her work and can be seen in several institutions around the Seattle area, including Harborview Hospital, Swedish Hospital, Hotel Max, International Kitchens and others, as well as private collections. 

Layne has had her work here at The Gatewood for sometime now and we are so pleased that she has been apart of our first few months open as a Bed & Breakfast. We enjoy the warmth and connectedness her art seems to bring to The Gatewood; reflecting a calm and welcoming environment that we strive to provide in this engaging space.

Sissie Boatman-Guillan at Hotwire Online Coffeehouse

April 10, 2014



Sissie Boatman-Guillan:

From the moment I received my first camera as a kid, I was hooked on photography. Through hands-on work, trial and error, and coursework I developed and refined my skills. In 2011, I combined two passions, my love of pets and photography, and established a small business called PawPrints Pet Photography with the mission to provide pet lovers with soulful portraits of their beloved furry babies. 


Sissie will be at Hotwire during the artist reception, stop by with your pet and say hello. We'll have special treats for humans and furry friends. Meet Sissie, and see why PawPrints Pet Photography is becoming one of the best pet photography businesses in West Seattle.

Holli Withani at RE/MAX Junction

April 10, 2014



Holli uses photography as a way to help us remember that life is beautiful. Capturing the essence of a tulip helps her keep that artistic eye sharp for when she photographs a bride or new baby. Being behind the camera is her happy place.

Born and raised in West Seattle, Holli grew up appreciating the great outdoors and local art galleries. Both influence her photography. Returning to West Seattle to start her own family, she can provide over a dozen amazing locations for photo shoots just in West Seattle. The city provides even more options!

Holli left West Seattle for college where she learned photography in a photojournalism course using film. A documentary style that has been with her ever since. After working as a Wedding Photographer’s Assistant, Holli began photographing weddings in Port Angeles, Washington and then in Seattle.

Holli's focus shifted once she started a family, and while she took a break from Wedding and Event Photography, her camera was never idle. Digital photography entered her life. Holli started finding beauty in every day life, and began capturing Fine Art Photography


Erin Elliott & Dale Wampler will be providing Hors D'oeuvres and drinks. We will also be featuring 2 other Artists: 

  • Local West Seattle Resident Dave Fitton a sculptor who uses recycled materials to build his work.
  • Monica Adams-Stout a local sculptor and painter.


RE/MAX Junction is located at 4727 44th Ave. SW suite 101.

David Kannas at Merryweather Books

April 10, 2014

David Kannas is a local author. No, David Kannas is not Don Lake, the protagonist in Still Life with Badge, but there are some similarities between them. Both were born and raised on the Iron Range of Northern Minnesota, David was not born with the riches that cushioned Don Lake’s early life, however. They both went off to war when the popular thing to do at the time was to cross into nearby Canada. Upon their return to the land of the big PX, or “the world,” as it was known to those who counted the days before climbing onto a plane out of Vietnam, both went to college, then became cops and love art. That is pretty much where the similarities end.

Oh yes, there is that additional part of life they share: They were both homicide detectives with the Seattle Police Department. Don Lake remains employed there while David is happily retired. Still Life with Badge is fiction, and David does not know the man on the cover, as is suspected by most who pick up the book, nor does he know any of the characters in the book.

David lives in the North Admiral District of West Seattle where he is working on another Don Lake novel.

Merryweather Books is located at 4537 California Ave.

Megan Lingerfelt at Twilight Gallery & Boutique

April 10, 2014


Megan Lingerfelt

“My work seeks to glorify the utilitarian. Isolating one structure at a time, removing it from its functional context, I highlight the beauty of a manufactured form whose purpose was never to be beautiful. Investigation of an object produces a greater understanding of how its pieces make a whole, a process that takes time and creates sentimentality that may not have existed before. My affection for these bits of industrial equipment and cheap appliances is the driving force behind giving them a second life as an aesthetic object.”

Kim Merritt and her Tech”no”color Dream-bench will post up at Twilight Gallery & Boutique in West Seattle for 30 spastic and amazing days at her very own pop-up shop.
Her hours will be 12 to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Be sure to run down there and look, point, and devour all the madness. You’ll experience a rare peek into the process of jewelry making as Kim draws and saws and sweats and bleeds over her creations.
She might even fire up the torch once in a while.
It’s mesmerizing.

Libby Gerber and Ben Hirschkoff at ArtsWest

April 10, 2014
Libby Gerber and Ben Hirschkoff




Join us for the closing reception of Chasing Trails Thursday April 10th from 6-9pm! Reception will include artist talks at 7pm.

Each of Libby Gerber’s map-like accordion-fold books is an ornate drawing of a crack in something: a foundation, sidewalk, freeway or skyscraper. This series of work, called The Topography of Cracks, is one of the ways Gerber uses her art practice to explore the distinctions we perceive between the “natural” and man-made worlds.

With his tape collages of cartoonish cloud-like shapes and his mad-scientist-in-the-basement moving sculptures of clouds and weather systems, Ben Hirschkoff borrows archetypal symbols of nature to create objects that bask in their own unnaturalness.
Together, Hirschkoff and Gerber ask us to look at what happens in the space between things and what’s left over when the subject of the action is missing. We’re made to wonder about what caused this ambiguous imagery that doubles as evidence: What caused this plume of smoke, or video-game-like cumulous nimbus suspended in a sky-less plane? Are these cracks in cement any different from the geological fractures they reference? Is there a consequence? Are we the protagonists?--or are we stuck, like the remnant cracks and clouds, in these “absurd constructions between defined spaces”? (Hirschkoff)

ArtsWest is located at 4711 California Ave SW.

Jan Martindale at West Seattle Cellars

April 10, 2014




Jan Martindale:

For April’s Art Walk, we will be continuing our display of photos I took on my two-week sojourn in Myanmar (Burma) in January with my sister. Rudyard Kipling once wrote that Burma “is quite unlike any place you know about.” We found that to be true in many wonderful ways. The people were genuinely warm and welcoming and we had countless delightful and unexpected encounters and experiences along the way. I took lots of photos and I am currently showing a selection that reflects some of my favorite impressions.
On Art Walk night this week, our weekly free tasting will feature southern French wines from West Seattle’s own Small Vineyards. Our good friend Tristan Ohms will be on hand to pour a great selection of wines he has picked out for our tasting. Come by this Thursday, April 10, from 5:30 to 9:00 for French wines and images of Myanmar.

West Seattle Cellars is located at 6026 California Ave. SW.

Alexander Riding (and others) at Chaco Canyon

April 10, 2014




Alexander Riding:

Artwork must be intrinsically unconsumable, problematic, unsettling, in other words, a living relationship. Failing this, an object has failed to reach a state of art-ness, its grace.

Alexander Riding, 1977, is an artist and performer; the body of his work is about intimacy, mutations of love and intimacy, holding intimate time and space, limits of the mind and body, and the poetry that comes from exposing or being exposed by these limits. His writing, painting and sculpture collections are entitled the Book of Total Darkness - Literature of a Butoh Dancer, Revelations of Two Stupid Continentals and Grinder Family Archives.
We are also featuring watercolor paintings by Bethany Alsin, oil paintings by Jack Schursky, and mixed media moon work by Maggie Sharar.

Chaco Canyon West Seattle is located at 3770 SW Alaska St.

Scott Cahill Rude at Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub

April 10, 2014


Scott Cahill Rude:

This is a different view of Seattle; I try to show a unique perspective of my city through puddle, water, and light reflections and also with creative compositions, views, and angles... 
I like to keep things simple, my puddle reflections are NOT photoshop creations. (See "The Secret Of Puddle Reflections" gallery for examples of how I achieve some interesting effects)...I enjoy finding new and different ways of looking at things...Beauty is everywhere in our world, you just have to see it.... 
PERSPECTIVE: It's how we view the world; how we feel about the things that surround us and the events that shape our lives....A different perspective can change everything; it can turn a bad day into a good one, a setback into an opportunity, even an ordinary puddle can become a beautiful work of art....I have found that life is all about perspective and I hope you enjoy mine....I view the subjects of my photography as metaphors for life, it's all how you look at it.... 
Thank you for letting me show Seattle through my eyes and for letting me share my passion with you. If you are ever at Seattle's famous Pike Place Market, come on by my shop and say hi!


Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub is located at 4720 California ave sw.

Corie Brooke at Shanti Salon and Day Spa

April 10, 2014



Corie Brooke:

Photography has been a way for me to capture those wonderful moments when you are alone in nature, to find the color and shapes, the play of light and shadows. I will have fine art photographs as well as mixed media canvas pieces available.


Shanti Salon and Day Spa is located at 2138 California Ave SW.

Michelle Salazar at Wallflower Custom Framing

April 10, 2014


Michelle Salazar
Since 2003 Salazar’s prolific body of work shows extensively around the Puget Sound, the West Coast and Internationally. Her work, often borrows from the Cowboy archetype to explore how humans cultivate a veneer of toughness to hide vulnerabilities. A close examination of her figurative oil paintings reveals repetition of symbols, text and numbers forcefully carved and scratched directly into the canvas, giving each piece depth and complexity. Each stroke or mark has a subconscious and obsessive charge.

Wallflower Custom Framing is located at 4735 42nd Ave SW.

Lena Eivy at Better Builders

April 10, 2014


Lena Eivy:

I've always been fascinated by the connections around us – connections between people and connections people have with nature. I think there is something really powerful that occurs when a person is moved by another person or by the world around them. These are universal feelings that bring us closer together by experiencing them. I take photos of things that move me – that I can connect with. From my daughter making a wish on a dandelion to the colors of the bark as it peals away from a tree. These are moments that make me want to stop what I am doing and live fully in the present. My deepest hope is that others will experience these moments and connect with them as well. 
This show is all about my adventures in Italy. It seemed every time I turned around there was another amazing landscape or ancient crumbling structure. I found myself getting lost in the details – from the flowers blooming on the crumbling rock wall to the way the light fell through the window to illuminate an ancient mosaic. 
As a working artist, I am hired to capture big events, like weddings, as well as the more mundane moments of an ordinary Tuesday at the beach with a family enjoying time together. Rather than pose my subjects, I prefer to capture them truly engaged in the moment with each other and the world around them. When I go out on my own with my camera, I do much of the same. I follow my family in the shadows. I tune myself into the world around me and the things that I find.As a working artist, I am hired to capture big events, like weddings, as well as the more mundane moments of an ordinary Tuesday at the beach with a family enjoying time together.

Joel Marcus at HomeStreet Bank

April 10, 2014



Joel Marcus is a Seattle artist who has been making linocut prints for over 20 years. The theme of his work is the range of human emotions and the personal struggles all people face in daily life. The piece on display depicts nine biblical patriarchs who in their own lives faced hatred, jealousy, anger, greed, ambition, betrayal and fear. Through their stories we learn how to develop patience, compassion, openness, tolerance and understanding. When he is not in the company of angry men, Joel likes to cook healthy food, work in the garden and play with his dog.

Join us for the Art Walk April 10th and enjoy light refreshments and the opportunity to meet local artist, Joel Marcus!

Taylor Renno at Mind Unwind

April 10, 2014

Taylor Renno has been doing art since before she can remember. She grew up on Vashon Island, and has focussed on making art a career since she was 13 years old, showing in local galleries, and apprenticing with local artists. The tiny, typically unnoticed, details of everyday life are the things that strike Taylor the most, and she aims to highlight them in her work as an artist; featuring things like small bubbles, wrinkled napkins, and wilting petals.

Currently 25, Taylor has recently gone back to school to pursue a degree in cognitive neuroscience, another thing about which she is very passionate. In the times when she isn't buried in homework or working on commissioned paintings, you can most likely find Taylor either rock climbing or brewing beer at home. Because, why not do everything?

She hopes that you like her work, and that it inspires you to take notice of the tiny detailing that make up the whole of your everyday life.



Happy Hour all night in the Treehouse Lounge. Enjoy art by Maxx in the Treehouse Lounge.

Fab Rideti at Cupcake Royale

April 10, 2014

Fab Rideti:

With laughter comes a letting go of fear; the tragedy of life is that we do not come out of it alive…Laughter teaches us to live fully in the present, to keep things in perspective. It allows us to show the unbearable and break taboos.
I offer my personal vision of the world, as an attempt to awaken a sleeping conscience, and sow the seeds of doubt, to provoke question about what deserves serious consideration, and what does not. It is an invitation to step back …and laugh.



Jim Lopresti at Vue Apartments


April 10, 2014

Jim Lopresti:

“I was born and raised in Seattle and while I’ve had no formal art training, I’ve been painting since childhood. I approach painting much the same way one goes about solving a crossword puzzle. A canvas has blank spaces that can be filled in many ways. Put in a letter or a color; it’s right or it’s wrong. If it’s wrong, keep trying until the puzzle is finished."



Jim Lopresti is the featured artist for the Vue Apartments for April. Jim is a Burien resident and a member of the ARTSWEST Artists Association. He has been an Artwalk participant in the past at Artswest, Alki Arts, Wild Rose, and at Chaco Canyon.
Vue Apartments is located at 3261 SW Avalon Way.

"Spike" is a portrait of her niece's Chihuahua, and is so far one of our most popular Art Walk models. Kelli can be reached at kellieggers (at) comcast (dot) net if you'd like some fine pet portraiture (and who wouldn't?!?)





Group show at The Gatewood Bed and Breakfast

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Layne Cook

I'm a Pacific Northwest native, born in Seattle and raised in Portland. I received a BA degree in art from the University of Washington in 1973. In the fall of that year I went to Europe to meet "old world" relatives before settling down to the business of earning a living. My first job upon returning was as a counselor at a residential treatment center for adolescent girls in Yakima, WA. It was in Yakima that I bought my first house and remodeled it. That house turned out to be the first of 3 that I bought and remodeled on my own before marrying a general contractor in 1989 and taking on 3 more houses as a twosome. 
The majority of my working years were spent as a kitchen designer in Bellevue, WA. In 2001 my husband and I quit our jobs to take a 6 month driving trip around the US and Canada in a VW Eurovan. It was during this time that I made the decision to seriously pursue my passion for art in the form of painting. I have been actively painting and exhibiting since then, and have pieces in many private collections as well as in Harborview Hospital, Swedish Hospital, Hotel Max, International Kitchens, and Ryan Swanson & Cleveland law firm. I was represented by the Rovzar Gallery in Kirkland from 2006-2008 when the gallery closed. Currently I represent myself.




Jon Taylor touches a variety of media. He has spent many years learning and using watercolor, acrylics, oils, printmaking, film and digital photography, sculpture and printmaking... you name it!  His websiteTaylor Art House shows both of his loves of art and architecture highlighting art, photography, site planning and buildings and a blog describing his many forays into techniques for producing projects.  

From large painted panels to exquisite conceptual sculptures in acrylic sheet, wood and metals - Jon's work at The Gatewood is as diverse as his experience and we are very excited to have him on board!






Clare Johnson will be doing a live demo here at The Gatewood for the March edition of West Seattle Art Walk! Please come and see Clare work her magic!
The fact that we can only exist in one time and place is both an ordinary truth and a tragic one. We inevitably lose loved ones, have to live away from friends, see landscapes change, wish we could relive some great day. 
My work is a futile yet sincere attempt to locate and recover these lost things. It tries to let us exist again with what has slipped away, hovering between now and then. Persistent themes include memory, absence, growing up, fragmentation, nostalgia, and in-betweenness.
I am inspired by the experience of reading a book, whereby one can be alone but feel the presence of other people's thoughts and experiences - and can even, in a limited way, transcend physical location. I also look to the idea of a band-aid or plaster, a profoundly ordinary object that both identifies a wound and acts as a healing attention to it. 
My art should operate like both of these things - vividly depicting an absent time, place or person without ever fully recovering it, soothing our perpetual losses by mourning them.



We are featuring some new pieces by Mike Oncley this month at West Seattle Art Walk

Mike Oncley is a 25 year old northwest artist. Born and raised in Long Beach, CA, he now reside in Seattle, WA with his dog Wayne.Mike has freelanced most of his life for musicians and non-profits and spent some time working at a major clothing company. His art styles vary from minimalist posters, to stenciled spray paintings, to mixed media portraits using materials ranging from wine corks, to coffee beans, cigarettes and even broken glass. Eclectic they may be, but Mike refuses to stick to just one medium with his works. The art he create mainly revolves around pop culture, consisting of portraits of musicians, actors and writers. He is always open to suggestions for his next subject and hopes to hear from you.

Sam Jennings at Better Builders

Thursday, March 13, 2014



Sam Jennings:
Race, religion, gender, sexuality, nationality - tools of identity, symbols of both empowerment and discrimination. People dress in the symbols of their culture, the symbols of who they identify themselves as and who they aspire to be. Many have used markings on the face - tattoos, paint, scars, adornments - to communicate a place in the world, a place in a society. And as cultures, societies, and nations break down - the empowerment these symbols connect to is broken and lost. Sometimes we have to create new ones to take their place. And thus find our place once again. 
These images I've created under the banner of SAMNATION are characters both superficial and genuine in their own special way. They proudly and boldly declare who they are and at the same time hide behind a veil or mask. I like them a lot and I hope you do as well.

Stop by to meet the artist, Sam Jennings, and enjoy a snack!
