Burien’s Fall Art Walk And Give & Get Fundraiser Is Saturday, Sept. 12th
Burien’s annual free Fall Art Walk is coming to downtown on Saturday, Sept. 12th from 10am to 5pm, and everyone’s invited to come enjoy visual artistry of every stripe while taking in some fresh air, as well as giving back this year at the new Give & Get Fundraiser.
The Art Walk will take place in the downtown core on SW 152nd between 2nd Ave SW and 10th Ave SW with art both inside and outside businesses in downtown Burien. Artists will typically be on hand to talk about and sell their work during the free art walk, and some artists will demonstrate their techniques. The event is sponsored by the nonprofit Discover Burien Association and Sterling Savings Bank.
Find artist locations with an art walk map, which can be obtained free at the Discover Burien Association booth at SW 152nd Street between Ambaum Boulevard SW and 10th Ave SW in Olde Burien.
Give back during this yearâ€™s art walk with the new Give & Get Fundraiser at The Mark Restaurant in Olde Burien, where you can start your walk in proper form with a Mimosa and Pastries Breakfast from 9:30am to 10:30am, featuring the big, beautiful artwork of Warren Knapp. This modern impressionist has made his artwork extremely affordable just for the art walk and will donate 30 percent of the proceeds from sales of his artwork made during the breakfast and later that day to the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence for an arts scholarship.
On Friday, Sept. 11th, chat with Warren Knapp and other artists who will be exhibiting Saturday while sneaking a peak at their work and enjoying some wine and cheese. The Wine and Cheese Reception runs from 5pm to 8pm Knapp will donate 30 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his artwork to Discover Burien.
Both the breakfast and reception will be held at the Mark Restaurant & Bar, 918 S.W. 152nd St.
