Join us and many other Ballard art-industry-supporting businesses on Thursday, June 15 for Ballard Night Out! The new art walk, put on by Greater Ballard Arts,  is always on the third Thursday of the month, and this month you can participate at Ballard’s Verity branch!

We will be showcasing pieces from local artist Kyle Krauskopf, and all of Verity’s commissioned “truth” paintings and illustrations will be on display for you to see in their entirety up close. We will also feature live music by Abaraham Neuwelt, a percussionist who specializes in an instrument similar to the Hang drum. Plus, while you listen to music and examine art, you can enjoy some light refreshments.

This month, there are 23 venues showcasing local art in the Ballard area. We hope you can join us and help support the local art scene. And if you can’t make it this month, no worries! Watch ballardnightout.com for upcoming dates and venue listings–Verity will be on the list again soon.

Hi, I’m Kira. I joined Verity in early 2012 after a seven-year stint as a newspaper reporter. While I never thought my career path would veer off in this direction, I am loving my time at Verity. I recently moved from being a member services representative at the Alderwood Branch to being the marketing coordinator for the credit union.

I’m originally from Texas, but I have lived all over the country and the world, including Boston, Massachusetts, Anchorage, Alaska and Sydney, Australia. But in all my travels, the Pacific Northwest is the only place that has felt like home.

When not at work, I am usually home with playing with my son, husband, dog and three cats. During the rare times I don’t have a to-do list to plow through (and it’s not raining too hard), I can be found digging in the vegetable garden, training for a half-marathon, or grilling in the backyard.
