Scores of bicycle enthusiasts gathered on June 2 for the First Thursday ArtWalk at the Bicycle Alliance office in Pioneer Square. On display were the creative works of members Lisa Reynolds (encaustic and mixed media), Marie Zahradnik (pencil and watercolor), Andy Goulding (pen and ink), and Michael Stearns/Erica Hanson (waxed canvas). To the delight of guests, Marie Zahradnik drew “blind contour portraits” – created with the artist looking at the subject but not the paper. She also hung the new unofficial emblem “In Bikes We Trust.”
Join us on Thursday, July 7 for the next ArtWalk at the Bicycle Alliance. Several new artists/members will be featured. As a bonus, Marie and Andy plan to return in July and sketch portraits for guests who are interested in being immortalized in an original work of art!
