November’s First Friday Gallery Walk features wearable art at the Depot, wood sculptures at The Good Stuff and new landscapes from Jeanne Levasseur at Scott-Milo Gallery. Galleries in downtown will be open Friday night.

The First Friday Artwalk is Friday, November 4 from 6 – 9 pm.

A.C.M.E. Creative Spaces, 705 Commercial Ave.

ACME Creative welcomes artist Scott Kolbo to the gallery in November 2016. Kolbo, an Associate Art Professor at Seattle Pacific University, is an accomplished print, drawing, installation, performance and projection artist. His work is first and foremost about humor; the comedy and tragedy he sees in the world and himself. His work is an investigation into the ways our nature manifests itself in our individual lives and society. This exhibition will feature Kolbo’s unique drawing and projection works.

Burton Jewelers, 620 Commercial Ave.

Burton Jewelers will open a new art show with the work of Richard Nash, a regional NW artist, featuring his unique and nuanced compositional approach to botanical and non-representational acrylic paintings and his contemporary sculpture from his Conical Etude Series in Cor-ten and stainless steel. This will also be the Burton Jewelers preholiday open house featuring a pearl show with our favorite supplier Mastoloni of New York and special offers throughout the store for all who attend. Special classical and jazz guitar will be performed by Julian Catford. As always fine food and beverages will be served.

The Good Stuff Arts, 604 Commercial Ave.

THE GOOD STUFF ARTS Gallery will have an Artist Reception on Art Walk Night for Fidalgo local artists and new art works. Come join them in a “Celebration of Art”.
