The February Art Walk on Mercer Island also will see a Saturday opening.

Clarke and Clarke Art + Artifacts will host two openings this week — 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2. Clarke and Clarke is located at 7605 SE 27th St. #105.

From Feb. 1 through Feb. 28 “A Powerful Perspective — Part II” will be on display.

“(It) features seven of our most sought-after artists whose works have completely individual viewpoints and strong techniques,” a Clarke and Clarke event notice stated. “They have submitted works of their own personal choice and ones that they feel best represents their current method, individual technique or individual style.”

Some of the artists will be present at both openings for a meet and greet.

The artists are Chris Baumgartner (contemporary Zen, ink and rice paper textural abstract collages), Sharon Carr (colored abstracts in oil and cold wax), Valaree Cox (contemporary patterns in acrylic on board), Karen Dedrickson (Sumi ink and Kintsukurio method on mulberry paper), Noble Golden (aper vessels and complex paper works on canvas), Agnes Lee (abstractions of poems in kanji recreated in acrylics on canvas) and Susanne Werner (desert colorations in abstract on canvas and complex mixed medium encaustics on board).

SZ Gallery’s February & March artist is Debra Van Tuinen. Her “Light Revealed” exhibit will show Feb. 1-March 27 with Art and Wine receptions on Friday, Feb. 1 and Friday, March 1. The gallery is located at 2441 76th Ave. SE, Suite 160.

Van Tuinen’s career has spanned more than 40 years as a painter, printmaker, teacher and art advocate. “Light Revealed” is the organic evolution of her previous work into a new flowing form.

The Mercer Island Visual Arts League (MIVAL) will also host a First Friday art opening on Feb. 1. Its new exhibit, “Whatever Your Heart Desires,” will be on view Feb. 1-24. The gallery is located at 2836 78th Ave. SE.
