While much of the Art Walk commotion is centered on the first and second Thursday of every month, two events allow Seattleites to bring some art into their weekend plans.

Georgetown Art Attack

This month Art Attack will be held on Saturday June 14, from 6PM to 9PM. Art Attack boasts gallery experiences and a unique chance to shop in the “trailer park” mall.

One notable gallery to visit is LxWxH, whose new show Syzygy features workby Tim Cross. Cross’ show is described by curator Sharon Arnold as “a fantastic and colorful science fiction landscape: ambiguous ship-like objects flying across and unfamiliar sky, chemical clouds and strange rock formations, and signals transmitting into the unknown.”

Another fun stop is Kassie Keith Curiosities and Home Decor. This store offers unique and eccentric antiques and furniture, and was recently featured in Seattle Magazine as a “Top Home Decor Shop.” 

Ballard Art Walk hosted by Monster

Also on Saturday, June 14, Ballard’s Monster Art and Clothing on 20th Ave NW will host an art walk. I have never attended the event, but I am excited to check it out this month. It will feature a live mural painting by artist Narboo. Like the Georgetown Art Attack, the Ballard Art Walk provides goers with a fun chance to stop, shop and art it up in the community from 6PM to 9PM.
