Birds are taking flight this fall — and landing at First Thursday Art Walk. Quite a few Pioneer Square galleries showcase the feathered creatures, embodying human emotion, signifying liberty and representing life's many cycles.

Some highlights of tonight's gallery walk:

Flatcolor Gallery

Joe Vollan & Robert Hardgrave

Mystery shrouds the paintings of Seattle artist Joe Vollan's works of skeletal animals and robots. Seattle artist Robert Hardgrave's paintings meditate on the unpredictability of life.

Reception: 5-9 p.m.

Address: 528 First Ave. S., Seattle; 206-390-6537 or

Pacini Lubel Gallery

Joey Chiarello

Powerful animals, such as eagles and wolves, embody human emotion in sculpture. Seattle ceramic artist Joey Chiarello dresses these figures in protective armor as if they're prepared to engage in war.

Reception: 6-8 p.m.

Address: 207 Second Ave. S., Seattle; 206 326-5555 or

Stonington Gallery

"Striving For Balance"

Address: 119 S. Jackson St., Seattle; 206-405-4040 or

Life and death are on display in Seattle artist Mark Calderon's sculptures in cast bronze, lead and paraffin wax. For example, his hummingbird piece is frantic, caught in midflight.
