The Edmonds Third Thursday Art Walk is tonight from 5-8 at various locations downtown.
New today: A singles meet-and-walk will begin at 5 p.m. at Old Milltown Lounge. After picking up a map, you can head out on the walk with some new friends in groups of three to five people people. It's sponsored by Intuitive Matchmaking.
Started a decade ago by Jeff Stilwell and Manya Schilperoort, owners of Manya Vee Selects, the art walk now attracts up to 600 visitors, who tonight will be able to partake in arts, entertainment, tastings and demos.
"The arts are a big tent affair with something for everyone," said Stilwell, director of Edmonds Art Walk. "October's Art Walk is a clear sign of that with our wide variety of abstract and impressionist paintings, pottery, jewelry and other works. And don't forget, the artist is always on hand to say hello."
Live performances include:
- Jazz Pearls Music at ArtsNow Conference Center
- David Little piano at Edward Jones
- Solar Jazz Trio at Fabric of Life Boutique
- Dan Voetmann's ballads at Saetia
- Ron Dalton at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC
- Jackson Mindt and Anthony McIntosh performing jazz starting at 5:30 p.m. at Red Petal Cakes
