New art coming to First Friday Art Walk includes art work by members of the Washington Artist Group and jewelry at Scott-Milo and ceremics at the Depot Arts Center.

Scott-Milo is presenting a great collection of art by the Washington Artist Group. Artists are from the greater King County area and include paintings by Pepper Peterson, Patty Forte-Linna, Dick Smith, Cheryl King, Cary Jurriaans, Judythe Sherwood and Ned Mueller. Scott-Milo will also have a great selection of new jewelry, sculptures and glasswork and beautifully crafted wood tables in stock. Join the reception with the artists during First Friday Art Walk, June 6, from 6 - 9 pm.

Meanwhile, the Depot Arts Center is featuring Northwest artists with hand-built and thrown pottery. Members of the Cascade Clay Artists are leading this show. They are potters, hand builders and sculptors who share common goals - to explore their development as clay artists and to increase the public perception of clay as an art form. This group is made up of both semi- and full-time professionals representing four Northwest Washington counties. Join the artists’ reception, Friday, June 6 from 6 - 9 pm.

Anne Martin McCool is featuring Debbie Aldrich jewelry and Carole Cunningham jewelry.

Insights Gallery is featuring Alfred Currier oil paintings, Anne Schreivogl oil and acrylics, Ramona Hammerly oil paintings, Marty Rogers watercolors, Dianna Shyne acrylic paintings and John Simon oils.
