Ballard Art Walk: businesses throughout Ballard open their doors on the second Saturday of every month. Be sure to include the Sev Shoon and BallardWorks studios, at 2862 NW Market St, in your travels. I will be moving into my new studio on the second floor this week.  There are 19 artists on the second and third floor of  the building, and the hallways are hung with new work from outside artists every month.
In an effort to reclaim some balance and peace for my family, I will only participate in one trunk show this year:
Happy shopping to all!
