Edmonds Summer Wine Walk returning Aug. 7
The Edmonds Summer Wine Walk, postponed last year due the pandemic, is set to return 5-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7.
The event is a fundraiser for Art Walk Edmonds, held on the third Thursday of the month.
Profits raised from this year's Wine Walks will help cover administration costs for Art Walk Edmonds, fund special events and help to install new murals through Mural Project Edmonds.
This year, the Wine Walk will have more "Sip Stops" spread out throughout the walkable downtown core versus previous years' concentrated walking areas. There will also be two outdoor check-in locations rather than one central check-in.
As in year's past, the event is co-hosted with Seattle Uncorked, largest producer of Wine Walk events in the Pacific Northwest.
If the Wine Walk has to be postponed due to renewed COVID restrictions, Sept. 11 has been designated as the backup date.
'Wood, Paper, Metal' at Gallery North
Naomi Schneider, Sachi Tanimoto, and Anne-Lise Deering are the featured artists this month at Gallery North in Edmonds. Their show is "Wood, Paper, Metal."
Schneider started woodcarving in 1982, when she began taking private classes in Japan. She began teaching woodcarving in 1984. She has produced many styles in this art, including kibori, a picture inscribed on wood, sometimes painted and other times in natural wood tones. Themes vary from natural subjects to manmade objects.
Sachi Tanimoto-Palermo is a practitioner of the Japanese art of senga, or paper-cutting. She originally studied calligraphy with her father, a master calligrapher, from early childhood, and studied senga with Toru Otsuki, a master of the Japanese Senga Association.
Deering was born in Norway and came to the U.S. after finishing school. She studied art with a ceramic major at Penn State University and got her bachelor's degree in 1977. She worked for several years as a potter in her own studio in State College, Penn., until she was introduced to bas relief and medallic sculpture.
After she moved to Edmonds in 1999, her focus has mainly been on sculpture and medallic art. Currently she serves as president of the American Medallic Sculpture Association.
Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no formal reception with refreshments, but Gallery North will be open until 8 p.m. June 17 for Art Walk Edmonds, where the artists will be on hand.
Gallery North is at 401 Main St.. Info: http://www.gallerynorthedmonds.com, 425-774-0946.
