Enjoy art and wine downtown Thursday

For the May First Thursday art and wine walk on Mercer Island, SZ Gallery will feature artist Deborah Kapoor’s “Into the Pink.” The event will be from 5-8 p.m. on May 4.

“Using found objects from the domestic and natural world, Kapoor creates pink vignettes that reclaim and revel in feminine matter,” according to an email from Suzanne Zahr Art and Architecture.

The event is sponsored by Bell-Anderson, with tastings provided by The Islander.

Clarke and Clarke Art and Artifacts will be open by appointment only from May 1-12, and not be open for the Mercer Island First Thursday art walk. The gallery will be holding a special opening at the end of the month.
