Ballard Art Walk with Molly Hashmoto

We are participating in Ballard Art Walk every second Saturday of the month from 6 - 8 PM.

Naturally, we will focus on showcasing artists who are book illustrators. For July, we're focusing on one of the very best in the region, Molly Hashimoto.

Her newest book Birds of the West, captures nearly 100 Western bird species across seven habitats using different media, from quick ink sketches to vivid block prints. From the diminutive ruby-crowned kinglet to the majestic golden eagle, Molly’s range of art and detail encourages all of us, whether artists or not, to observe our feathered friends more closely. Whether you choose to pick up a brush and paint or simply enjoy the magnificence of nature as depicted in Molly’s artwork, Birds of the West is guaranteed to delight and inspire.

Seattle resident Molly Hashimoto leads plein air watercolor painting and printmaking workshops at the North Cascades Institute, Yellowstone Forever Institute, Wenatchee River Institute, and Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Her artwork is widely published in cards, calendars, books, and journals. Learn more at She'll be doing a printmaking demonstration for us while she's here!

Come do the stroll! This way you can spy the art, and take home the coolest prize from all of art walk . . . a book signed by the illustrator who made it! 

Here's the link to the official Art Walk Site.
