White Center Third Saturday Art Walk

 

November 20th, 6 PM - 9 PM


Dubsea Coffee (9910 8th Ave SW): SIBELLE NGUYEN: The Road to Dubsea. Dubsea Coffee is officially now 1 year old! This month’s art show tells the story of Dubsea, the people, the places, and the ideas that have molded it to what you know it as today. Please join us this Saturday evening from 7-9 pm to celebrate Dubsea’s 1st birthday and welcome in another great year!

Big Al Brewing (9832 14th Avenue SW):  Cullen Brian. Prints. New work by this talented local artist.

Dzul Tattoo (9622-B 16th Ave SW):  The Dzul Family. Tattoo, airbrush, cool urban art.  Check out the shop, get that long-desired tattoo!

Proletariat Pizza (9622-A 16th Avenue SW ): Michelle Taylor. Photography.  Great Stuff!!

3.14 Bakery (9602 16th Ave SW): Alistair Olson. Photography. My style, such as it is, is taking photos of ordinary, common everyday things and looking at them from a different perspective, trying to reveal the mystery and wonder that I see there. Art Walk special: Pie and coffee for just $3.50!

Full Tilt Ice Cream (9629 16th Ave Sw): Robin Jordan. Acrylics. Colorful and expressive figurative style.

***Prawnyxx - Local band of experimental, punkish stuff.  Check it out during the Art Walk.

Salvadorean Bakery (1719 SW Roxbury): Continuing show of the New Start Student Photography. If you haven’t had a chance to see this, you should.  Some amazing pieces.

A White Center Produce Market Tour was held on Oct. 20 to do updates/reports of past and current work to raise the awareness of healthy food options at the produce markets and promote healthy foodshopping and cooking (WC Food Bank Healthy Food Gift Certificate Program, Family Connections events). Around 20 participants walked through WC business district, visited two produce markets and conversed with the owners of Lee’s Produce and Samway Market. The tour ended at 3.14 Bakery and Coffee to see a presentation from Evergreen H.S. students on a food label project conducted at WC local markets.
