There are art walks up and down the region, from Burien to Edmonds, but the biggest one is in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. It’s hailed as the longest-running art walk in the nation, and it goes down during the early evenings of every first Thursday of the month. The walks include everything from blue-chip art galleries like Greg Kucera Gallery to artist-run cooperatives like Soil. Bouncers won’t quiz you on postmodern sculpture at the door; someone will probably wear Tevas with socks. It’s Seattle. You can be casual.

September’s Pioneer Square Art Walk will feature the opening of:

🪵Humaira Abid’s Fight Like a Girl (you’ve probably never seen pine carved like this)

📸 Tyna Ontko’s The Shape of Evidence (these photos of salvaged and industrial materials are surprisingly moving)

🍑 A group show about self-discovery during lockdown (based on the photos promoting the event, you might see a butt)

👻 Chris Buening’s Some Monsters I Made During Covid (there’s an extremely cute and spooky “crying mask”)

🖌️ Curtis Steiner’s Sentient (bask in some vibrant, radiant, shape-full paintings)

💚 Heike Brachlow’s Colour Connections (you’ll gawk at how colorful this glass is)

While there’s art on basically every corner of this gallery-driven neighborhood, here are five biggies to help a first-timer get a sense of the scene.
