A sampling of what you’ll find this month, clockwise from upper left: Cindy Cruz at Windermere Real Estate, Nancy Duncan at Coldwell Banker Bain, Katrin Mucke at Salish Insurance Group and Puget Sound Camera Club at Edmonds Waterfront Center. More awaits!

Thursday, July 20, 5-8 p.m.

Enjoy sultry summer evenings in Edmonds by checking out all the new art in town.

There will be 20 businesses with new art up this month for you to stroll and see — and many will also be hosting artist shows during the Third Thursday Art Walk on July 20 from 5-8 p.m.

There is something for everyone — photography, painting, sketching, group shows — even bespoke cocktail kits (see them at Vie & Vin). Pet lovers will get a special treat with pet portraits at ArtSpot on the evening of Third Thursday. Donations suggested and all proceeds go to PAWS animal shelter.

AWE is also bringing you Artists in Action this month. Artists will be stationed at various outdoor locations along your route so you can see them as they ply their trade. Feel free to ask questions.

Art lovers of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to come out, meet the artists, and get inspired. Take a look at the show descriptions and walking map online to plan your summer stroll!
