Ballard ArtWalk this Saturday

It's second Saturday, you know the drill. It's the Ballard ArtWalk.

The Ballard ArtWalk will take place on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Art from local artists will be displayed at various studios and businesses around town. A map of where to find them can be seen above.

This month, the stop motion animation and illustrations of Mari Ichimasu will be premiering at Annie's Art and Frame, with musical guests, Rats in the Grass.

Ichimasu's animation, LITTLE OZE, features hand-made mouse puppets and personally painted backgrounds. On the ArtWalk blog, she had this to say about it:

“I have been traveling the world in my imagination called Little Oze. Anything I see, meet, listen to or feel on this endless trip, I visualize in my projects like writing in a memo pad or journal. There are some interesting views and stories that I can’t help but document. Concepts often come from very small ordinary scenes in daily life that are often taken for granted. My mission is to be the voice and deliver the beauty of everything with a small and quiet existence.”
