Find us in the community

Getting out and engaging with people is just another way we are promoting vibrant communities. Whether we are hosting a free Verity event at a branch, participating in an art walk, or hosting a booth at a community gathering, you’ll find it listed below. We hope to see you there! 

Verity + Illumination Clothing Drive

Our annual Clothing Drive collaboration with Illumination Learning Studio is returning to our Greenwood, Wallingford, and Ballard branches. We will be collecting hats, scarves, mittens, gloves and socks November 22nd through December 3rd.

Thanksgiving Food Drive

The West Seattle branch is holding a food drive now through Thanksgiving with the West Seattle Food Bank. We are looking for canned goods an ddonations for turkey purchases (no refrigerated or frozen foods). Start the season of giving off on a good note!

Don't worry, if you can't make it to our these branches, you can drop it off at your local Verity branch and they will be able to get your donation over. For a direct link to donate towards the food drive please, click here.

Art displays and art walks

Supporting access to local art is important to us so several of our branches regularly participate in community art walks. If you are a local artist interested in showing at our West SeattleBallard or Greenwood locations, please contact the branch directly. 

Now showing in Ballard:

Anne Livingston

What happens after merging decades of painting and energy work with a former culinary/food styling career? In my case it leads to paintings with sculptural dimension and movement, showcasing vibrations between interacting colors. With the physicality of the paint material and intense chroma I try to break the fourth wall to address you directly: Here you are! I was thinking about you. We are connected!

I have studied art all around Seattle: University of Washington, Gage Academy, Pratt Fine Arts, Photography Center Northwest, and independent classes with artists I’ve admired. And while non-traditional, my degree from Seattle Culinary Academy also contributes to my art training. I live in Ballard with my family, paint at my home studio, and sometimes even still cook something fancy.

Ballard Night Out

In-person events for Ballard Night Out are returning July 2021! Verity will not be hosting a live event quite yet, but other venues in the Ballard area will open their doors on Thursday, July 15. Ballard Night Out is the third Thursday of each month, and watch soon for when Verity will join with live art and music again. Details at ballardnightout.com

Now showing in Greenwood:

Corinne Marie

I am truly grateful you are here.

Corinne Marie is passionate about creating. She spends most of her glorious solitude lost in her imagination, and then spilling it out onto canvas. Her style is heavily inspired by the fact that perfection is an illusion. For a majority of her life, she has been blinded by the act and with that, every new piece she starts is an unknown journey, and all that is left for her is to feel happiness...she finds freedom there. That is her wish for everyone living in this precious world. She believes that when each of us really savor the small and simple things, we are a step closer to peace inside ourselves. Mabuhay!

Be sure to check out her website for more!

Now showing in West Seattle:

Alexis LaFlamme

Alexis LaFlamme is an abstract artist based in West Seattle. She creates in many different mediums, but her favorites are acrylics and alcohol inks because of their vivid pigmentation. Through the use of nuanced rich colors and ethereal shapes, her work speaks to the underlying flow connecting all things. She is often inspired by the patterns and forms of nature, including water, trees and plants, the sky; all the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Alexis' artwork has been sold to private collectors and has benn shown at multiple galleries and art fairs throughout the PNW.

You can see some examples of Alexis' work at: www.alaflammeart.com

Now showing in Wallingford:

David A. Haughton was born in Philadelphia in 1956 and
moved to Canada in 1991. A self-taught artist, Haughton
has been exhibiting his work for forty years.

Island Paintings III will be his nineteenth solo exhibition in Vancouver, BC. He has also shown in Zurich, Athens, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle and his work hangs in over 300 private and corporate collections worldwide.

"Work on these British Columbia island paintings began over a decade ago, but I can trace their true origin back to 1975, voyaging alone for the first time, free camping on a ridge overlooking the Aegean and its many islands. With backpack and by bicycle I explored most of the Greek islands. I am now working my way around those of British Columbia: Quadra Island in particular, but now also Gabriola, Salt Spring and others.”
- Haughton
