Wire sculpture by Amy Hamblin at BallardWorks
From the organizers:
Among many other talented artists, this month’s Art Walk features the wire sculpture of Amy Hamblin at Spark Studio in the BallardWorks building (2856 NW Market St.). The sculptures on display, inspired by cellular structures and organic shapes, represent a body of work created over the last five years. Hamblin will also be demonstrating how she knits with wire during ArtWalk. In addition, school board candidate, Sue Peters, will be on hand at BallardWorks from 5:30-8 p.m. on the same night to discuss her platform for representing Ballard, West Phinney, Magnolia and Queen Anne.
Three Links Gallery, located in the historic Ballard-Alki Odd Fellows Lodge will be hosting a Halloween-themed Art Walk this month:
Samhain. Halloween. La Dia Los Muertos. Autumn is the time when many traditions have believed that the veil between the realms of the living and those that have passed is most thin. It is seen as an opportunity to commune with ancestors, pay respect, and sometimes, to be wary of what might have traversed between the two worlds. While the real deal is still a couple weeks away, the Three Links Gallery, located in the historic Ballard-Alki Odd Fellows Lodge (1706 NW Market Street), is opening its doors this Saturday, October 12th from 6-9 pm to showcase works by local artists inspired by the whimsical, traditional, and ethereal aspects of the season.
