This Saturday’s Ballard Art Walk will take over neighborhood businesses, galleries, studio, and restaurants from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for a family-friendly showcase of the work of local artists.

Art & Soul (2860 NW Market St) will host the work of Ballard artist Pat Clayton, and her series of oil on canvas paintings, Grand Canyons of the Colorado, Yellowstone and Pacific. Monster Art & Clothing (5000 20th Ave NW) will display the cartoon inspired artwork of Brandon Baker, aka Narboo, who will be live painting outside the shop.
In the Umpqua Bank Lobby, the 54th St. Atelier will be showing various Seattle sketches by Marilyn Batt, while entertainment in the lobby will be provided by bluegrass band Right as Rain beginning at 6:30 p.m. The works of Alaskan salmon fisherman and marine engineer Tom Crestodina, who draws the cross-sections of boats and other structures, will be at Annie’s Art & Frame (2212 NW Market St).
