Scenes from February’s White Center Art Walk

February 21st, 2010 Tracy Posted in Arts, White Center for the Arts, White Center news 1 Comment »

The best “art walks” are full of performance art as well as displayed, completed visual art, and last night, that was the case in White Center. A clear night, not too cold, so the White Center Art Walk excitement spilled onto the sidewalk - Dina Johnson shared her photos, including the Fusion Dance Crew outside the new Dream Community Gallery at 9640 16th SW. On the other side of 16th, Full Tilt Ice Cream filled with music fans:

Art Walk-ers also were serenaded inside Cafe Rozella – that’s proprietor Leticia, applauded by Blair Johnson:

You can see Dina’s full WC Art Walk photo set on Flickr by going here. Watch whitecenterforthearts.org for details on the next Third Saturday Art Walk as soon as they’re available; this edition of the WC Art Walk marks WCFTA’s first “birthday.”

White Center Art Walk: Building a tradition

December 20th, 2009 Tracy Posted in White Center for the Arts, White Center news Comments Off

(artist Leo Schmidt during the White Center Art Walk)
Story and photos by Mary Sheely
Reporting for White Center Now/West Seattle Blog

Neighboring West Seattle has a monthly Art Walk tradition, every second Thursday – and White Center is working on one too, every third Saturday.

Saturday night during this month’s White Center Art Walk, Damien Jurado played live at Full Tilt Ice Cream, Dubsea Coffee featured the art of Joerael Elliot along with a spoken word and open mic performance by youth from Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, student photos from New Start High School graced the walls of Big Al Brewing – these are by Kat Cabrera:

And student paintings were on display at the Salvadorean Bakery.

Shelli Park, chair of the White Center for the Arts board of directors, admits that the rain and holiday week reduced Art Walk attendance somewhat, but she has high hopes for future events, which take place the third Saturday of the month year-round.

“Our goal is to have more local businesses participating to be representative of the entire community,” Park says. “What they will provide will be poetry, music, whatever resonates with their community.” (We photographed her with her daughter at Proletariat Pizza, which also participated, with photos by Alexander King.)

Park says that the goal of the White Center Art Walk is twofold: “To help local artists and to help the businesses. We don’t want the people who are already here to be shut out because of the inevitable gentrification. We want them to be part of it: the diversity, the food, the color, and the culture.”

Learn more about future programs, including art programs and upcoming film workshops for local students – and watch for a preview of next month’s White Center Art Walk! – at the White Center for the Arts website.

From White Center for the Arts: Call for artists; community meeting

December 3rd, 2009 Tracy Posted in Arts, White Center for the Arts, White Center news Comments Off

From Shelli Park at White Center for the Arts:

White Center for the Arts is looking for artists of all media for the White Center Art Walk. We are scheduling for the next year, and would like to get as many White Center artists involved, and exhibiting/performing, as possible. Also, in the more fine weather, outdoor performances will be an option. Please contact me with your interest and pass this along to other artists.

We still need artists for the December Art Walk!!!!! Any takers?

Also, Dubsea Coffee will be the site of our next Community Artist meeting, which is open to artists of all medium, experience and age in the Greater White Center area, and to anyone interested in cultivating the arts here in White Center.

The last meeting was enlightening and productive. There is a great community of arts supporters here. When we come together, we support the work that is vital to a healthy community.

The goal is to break down the barriers that create a feeling of isolation within the community.

What, as an artist, do you need from the community in order to further your creative goals?

What, as a member of the community, can you give, no matter how small?

What would you like to see in White Center that would help you feel validated as an artist, or part of a healthy, diverse community?

Too much to think about? We also just want to have a good time talking and laughing! Come see what’s up in White Center…

Thursday, December 10th, 7:00 PM
