Women’s Evening Casting at Lincoln Park

Cast Away

The one good thing about cool weather is that while fishing, you won’t get a massive headache while you’re waiting to get a bite. That said, it’s the perfect time to mark your calendars for some fly fishing lessons and it’s happening on our own backyard. At Lincoln Park!

Joseph Brooks at Twilight Gallery

Art by Joseph Brooks

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Joseph Brooks, will be showing off his colorful and imaginative works at Twilight Gallery & Boutique this month of Sept.

Come meet the artist at Twilight for an Opening Reception on Thursday, September 11th from 6-9pm.

My non-representational work is an exercise in color, composition, and form. It shows how there can be beauty without being a defined object. What is a sunset if not color and composition? I do not refer to this work as abstract because it is not an abstraction of any form. I strip objects of their familiarity and allow the viewer to make their own connections to the work.

- Joseph Brooks

The artist exhibit will run through Sept 11th through Oct 2nd.

Twilight Gallery & Boutique is located in the West Seattle Junction at 4306 SW Alaska Street.
