This week’s Ballard ArtWalk is this Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m., with business throughout the Ballard core opening their doors to art lovers, and their walls to various displays from local artists. Here’s a breakdown of some of the highlights of this month’s ArtWalk:
Cory Ellen Boberg will be presenting her finished ballgown at New York Fashion Academy (5201 Ballard Ave NW), the completion of a month-long project to drape, fit, and construct a floor-length gown. That presentation begins at 7:30 p.m., with a preview of the Academy’s annual fashion show in September to follow at 8:30 p.m.
Lucky Dry Goods (5424 Ballard Ave NW) will host a vintage Hawaiian surf party, with live music from local surf band The Evanstones, and the art of Vintage Hawaiian clothing from the 1940s through 1960s on display.
Wallingford artist and architect Jon Taylor will be showing a series of mixed material sculptures at the Solo Lofts Sales Office (2041 NW 57th St., Loft 103). Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will also be provided.
