You may have wondered what’s happened to the Twilight Gallery sign. This just in from the owner of Twilight:
As we move into our 5th year of business our gallery has come into its own. We will continue the same unwavering commitment to women artists and women in business in our little cool corner of West Seattle. Stay tuned as we update our website, storefront and media. We like to do things slow and steady and that’s how we will continue to roll out, culminating with a big relaunch in the Spring. Thank you to our amazing friends and customers! In 2017 stay strong and commit to love.
Tracy, Kim, and Sylvia
Tracy goes onto to explain the meaning behind the name Virago. Virago (n.) A strong, brave or warlike woman. A virago is a woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities. A woman of stature, great strength and courage who is not feminine in the conventional way. The word Virago has almost always had an association with gender transgressions. A Virago, of whatever excellence, was still identified by her gender.
Or simply : A female warrior.
Stop by Virago to see what Tracy and her staff have at the gallery or visit their website.

DID YOU KNOW?
Hickman House is fully furnished 10-unit apartment complex and transitional housing program for survivors of domestic violence. Hickman House’s mission is to help transition families exiting emergency shelter back to self-sufficient living. During 6 to 24 month stays, Hickman House allows families time to gather resources to become economically independent and to strengthen their social support systems while living in a safe, supportive environment.
CAPERS is the home entertaining and gift shop in the West Seattle Junction that features locally sourced, eco-friendly and fairly-traded products to make your house a home. Owner, Lisa Myers and staff, dedicate both time and resources to help those in the neighborhood that are less fortunate.
Caspar Babypants is also known as Chris Ballew, twice Grammy nominated lead singer and songwriter for the Seattle band The Presidents of the United States of America. A bunch of years ago Chris rediscovered turn of the century folk and traditional music and focused on a more simple approach that gave birth to Caspar Babypants. His wife Kate Endle is a huge influence toward his transformation and writing style for kids and does all the cover art for the albums. Chris says, “I want to make music for the very young because I admire their associative inventive imaginations and as an adult I nurture that same creativity in myself.”
Come on over to CAPERS on Saturday, December 10th 5pm – 6:30pm to hear the sweet sounds of some of West Side Music Academy‘s students! These kids have been busily practicing their instruments and can’t wait to spread their holiday cheer. Listen to the kids while shopping at CAPERS for the perfect West Seattle gift.
West Side Music is located just at the edge of the West Seattle Junction at California and Dakota streets and has been happily sharing music in the West Seattle community since 1999, offering lessons, music therapy, and instrument rentals.
