Good news, art lovers! After a year’s absence due to COVID-19 restrictions, the beloved Third Thursday Art Walk Edmonds will start up again April 15, 5 p.m.-8 p.m., in addition to the new, month-long Art View Edmonds already in place since last month.

"From here forward, Art Walk will be both the Art View and the Art Walk melded together. You will be able to see the art in businesses any time during open hours, then visit again on the Third Thursday Art Walk evening. The bonus to the Third Thursday event is that the artists may be present in the location," according to Art Walk Edmonds coordinator Rachel Dobbins.

It’s basically a month-long Art Walk Edmonds celebration, as 15 participating downtown galleries, restaurants, shops, and even a real estate office host local artists and their art on-premises during regular business hours. Eight businesses will also continue to stay open later for Art Walk Edmonds, with safety measures in place.

The art is something special: David Marty’s boats bleeding into a European sea at Interiors of Edmonds, the blue water’s edge forming their own peaks and valleys in Kayla Sordahl’s multi-verse at Edmonds Vision Center, Frank Wieditz’s pastel-paper people at play at Coldwell Banker Bain…and so much more to admire — and make your own.

No refreshments. But plenty of original art displayed publicly to personalize for your private spaces.
