April’s edition of the monthly Capitol Hill art walk should be shower free. It’s part of a partly sunny weekend of good things to do around Capitol Hill including the 2014 return of the ‘Mo-Wave music festival.

Here are a few highlights for Thursday night’s art walk. You can find a complete listing and map on blitzcapitolhill.com:

  • Vermillion: Eidan Gidon—”Memory.” I have been painting and showing my art in California, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Canada, and Israel. I love traveling and sharing my art and who I am with people anywhere around the world and maybe one day with the whole universe.
  • Americana: Paintings by Emily Thornes. The artist’s diverse background of Mexican and Middle Eastern heritage influences her variety of art and style.
  • Photo CenterNW: Process. Marking the 175th anniversary of the announcement of photography and its myriad forms in the 21st century, Process is a celebration of photographic works that explore unique methodologies and question how we define photography today. Artists included in this exhibit reflect the present and future of photography, exploring material, duration, and the relationship between image and object. 6–8p.
  • Seattle Asian Art Museum: Free admission during Blitz art walk! Now showing one of China’s most renowned contemporary artists, Liu Xiaodong.
  • Isobelle Ouzman at Front Seat: Front Seat and Ghost Gallery present the work of Seattle artist Isobelle Ouzman, featuring her illustration work and 3D altered books. This exhibit will be on view at Front Seat, located on the 4th Floor of the Odd Fellows Building.
  • Edie’s Shoes: Turn in your broke and busted shoes for a 25% discount on any one item in the store. (Discount is limited to swapping one pair of shoes per customer)OR Write down your tale of woe: “I was so broke I…” And be entered in a drawing for a free pair of Tretorn’s! Maybe you don’t have a fancy car, but a good pair of shoes can easily take you all the places you want to go. At Edie’s we believe the right shoes can get you comfortably through a day on your feet and still be an expression of your personal style. Spruce up your digs with a beautiful piece of art. Accomplished Photographer Colby Chester will be showcasing his work with photos starting at $20!
