Capitol Hill galleries, stores, cafes, and bars welcome you to stop in and discover art in sometimes unexpected places during the Capitol Hill Art Walk on Thursday. Use the mobile site to plan your route, or pick up a paper map for old-fashioned navigation. Several new venues have join up this month so the map or app is handy even for art walk regulars. Art supply store Art Primo opens their doors for the art walk to showcase art from accomplished muralists. Another Hill retail newcomer, Nevertold Casket Company, invites you to step to see their photography show. Other new art walk venues this month: Revolver Bar with a one-day-only music photography show, the Ingersoll Gender Center featuring art from Kinoko (a former Seattleite now living in Portland),
Blick Art also has a photography show, and Studio Paradiso is showing new drawings and paintings by Wyatt Landis. If you are curious about the absence of LTD Gallery, don’t fret. The LTD folks are in the midst of moving to a new location, where they will take over the wall space and operate out of Raygun Lounge on Pine and will be back on the art walk next month.
