Woodinville Arts Alliance is continuing to take an alternative approach to the quarterly art walk by partnering with local artists to showcase their work virtually.
The Winter Art Walk features 10 local artists with work showcased in 10 participating locations, including local small businesses, wineries, breweries and cider houses around Woodinville. The alliance’s third virtual art walk will kick off on Dec. 4 from a link on its website: www.woodinvilleartsalliance.com.
“We want to continue to support our local businesses and our local artists,” said Stacey Almgren, programs chair for the Woodinville Arts Alliance. “We’re hoping to create some more visual interest now that everybody is stuck at home.”
Almgren said the virtual tour covers everything from traditional to contemporary. Fine artist Tara Jennings has been putting together the video component of each art walk. The video includes a slide about artists and pictures of their work, all which are available for purchase. Artwork ranges from acrylic and oil to glass and photography.
She said watercolor artist Doug Plut will be exhibiting at Gard Vintners. Mosaics artist Teresa White, the newest member to the Art Experience program, is showing her work at Sol Stone.
To stay connected with local businesses, the video also features each exhibiting location. These slides include information on pre-ordering, curbside pick-up, capacity changes, updated hours and links to menus.
Assuming restrictions will ease up, Almgren said, the alliance plans to rotate artwork at all participating locations in the middle of December.
Almgren encourages the community to visit the alliance’s Facebook and Instagram pages to participate in “20 for 20” in December. She said people can check out 20 pieces of artwork for 20 days in December by artists from the alliance. All artwork is able to be purchased, she added.
