We love art, and we especially appreciate Madison Park artists. So we are pleased to be able to report that two neighborhood artists have exciting news to share this month.
Brooke Westlund reports that she's currently in the process of creating a functioning art studio/gallery "down under" in the Pike Place Market. It's Space #328, and it'll be ready for its close-up (we mean opening-night blowout), on Wednesday, March 16 (5-7 pm). Meanwhile, Brooke and her friend Sam Taylor are jointly showing their work on the walls of Park Place Deli this month, for which there will be an artists' reception this Thursday, March 10, 5:30 to 8 pm. Come one, come all. The Deli is located at 4122 E. Madison Street. (That's Brooke's painting, On The 313th Day, shown above, with an overlay of drawings by Sam).
Bud Lowe is also taking his art to the next level, opening a studio in the "lower level" of the building that houses the new KeyBank branch. Lowe, who works in both watercolors and acrylics, already has his art on the walls in his downstairs location and is ready for visitors. His recently-mailed announcement of the Bud Lowe Art Studio/Gallery, states that studio hours are "9 am-ish to 5 pm-ish on weekdays and often on Saturdays, with time off for lunch and requisite naps and doctors' appointments. Best to call first [206-227-9760]." We don't think that Bud will mind our noting that he is one of the Park's older accomplished artists. His studio's address is 4105 E. Madison Street. (That's his watercolor, Gig Harbor #1, shown below).
