Bakery Nouveau May Artist Wyn Bielaska


I have been photographing SHIP HULLS for the past 15 years on weekends.....after working 40-60 hours a week as an architect. These ship hulls were found in Vancouver BC, Seattle and Tacoma Washington. These photographs are part of an ongoing exploration utilizing large steel ship hulls as the central subject matter in the study of manmade materials and the impact of natural forces upon them. As an Architect, these explorations become very important to attaining a deeper understanding of the nature of materials. They are also important exercises for me as a visual designer in the evolution of my visual perception that serves my daily pursuit of spatial and form composition.

West Seattle Wine Cellars May Artist Joshua Gosovich


West Seattle Wine Cellars May Artist, Joshua Gosovich


Joshua Gosovich grew up in California's Sacramento Valley and became interested in art in his freshman year in high school with his first art class. His artistic interest and skills blossomed when he transfered to a more art-centric high school. He was drawn to illustration and animation, an interest fostered by numerous classes, competitions, and juried shows. He earned and completed a scholarship at the Art Institute of Seattle in the study of computer animation and design, but after working in animation for a few years, decided he enjoyed illustration much more. Joshua currently works at the Seattle Art Museum and paints regularly.


"West Seattle Cellars' free wine tasting on Art Walk night will feature Wines of Substance, out of Walla Walla, named one of the year's "Hot Small Brands." Come and sample their wines as you enjoy the art of Joshua Gosovich."

Salazar’s paintings are erotic and intimate, portraying such recurring themes as courage, loneliness, strength, rebellion, love and heartbreak. Much of the appeal of her work is in her ability to show not only the tender and passionate sides of the heart, but also the painful and flawed sides.

ArtsWest May Show The Likeness of Form

Shadowland May Artist Gloria Adriana Cropper


Gloria’s life as an artist started in her early childhood. By her teenage years, her passion for creating anything with her hands was as natural as breathing. She went on to study visual arts at Oklahoma State University where shortly after she decided to move to Tepic, Nayarit Mexico. Many of her painting are inspired by the land and culture of her roots.

Her fascination with color and movement continues into her other paintings that show the same strength of emotion through the human figure. Gloria’s ardent relationship with painting is all her own. Her need to share the beauty she feels with her sensitive nature has been embraced by a small following of collectors.

Bin 41 May Artists PA Brent & Jessica Olsen


Bin 41, your new Junction wine shop, is pleased to host Lushworks for a showing of their modern abstracts. Woodinville artists, P.A. Brent and Jessica Olsen work together with one shared vision, using quick drying acrylics, pastes, and glazes to capture a moment in time. Each piece is multi-layered to create texture and depth. Many of the pieces are created as diptychs working on canvases simultaneously to represent one concept multiple times. In addition, we will have Grace Hitchman, a woodturning, jewelry-making West Seattleite. If you’ve been in the shop in the last week, you’ve seen her bottle stoppers and wine glass charms. Her work is elegant, organic and soft. Stop on by to meet Grace and see more of her handmade gems.

Join us during the art walk from 6 - 9 pm to view the artwork and to mingle with the artists. We will host a special tasting for the event in the shop featuring wines from Syncline, http://www.synclinewine.com/ Address: 4707 California Avenue SW #A; Phone: 206.937.0411; Website: www.bin41wine.com

Funky Janes May Artist Emily J. Williamson

I will be will be debuting several new pieces called the” ecstatic connection.” The Ecstatic Connection refers to the state of ecstasy one feels when they have a pure connection with nature. The pieces are mixed media, water color/ink/and oil. Some are purely abstract, others illustrative. I will also be showing new Doodles, $20 framed ink drawings. I had my first show of Doodles at Coffee to a Tea in December of 2009. I wasn’t sure if they’d be received. I was happily surprised when the silly little ditties were very popular. They make me smile.

Hotwire Coffee May Artist Amanda Kay Helmick


I paint to create backdrops – to create depth in the flat plane, and to challenge what art is. My undisciplined eyes rip, score, sew and drill into a canvas that is not sacred. The paintings are vessels – holding discarded and repurposed objects and transforming their existence to a life of beauty and admiration.
