The Hardware Store Restaurant Gallery will have two youth photography shows. Vashon Center for the Arts’ “Shoot to Show” will be the 14th annual exhibit from a class, taught by Ray Pforter, in which young photographers work with a single theme over the course of a month, resulting in a juried show. The theme this year was ”Postcards from Vashon.” The work, by 10 photographers, was all created in May. The second exhibit is “Photography Exploratory,” made up of the work of 15 McMurray Middle School eighth-grade students who spent a week photographing Seattle, Tacoma and Vashon as a capstone to middle school. Locations varied from Pike Place Market and the Seattle Public Library to Vashon’s Rumburg Foster Farm and the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, where each student had to spend 30 minutes photographing only one animal to get the best photograph possible. The group also photographed inside the new Amazon Spheres, the first Vashon group to ever do so. The tween images will be presented as handmade beeswax pieces on panels, stone and slate tiles as well as matted prints.

Judd Creek Ranch Gallery, a new gallery located at 22237 103rd Ave. SW, will exhibit “Indoor/Outdoor,” a show of sculpture and ceramics. The gallery is open for the first Friday art walk from 5 to 9 p.m., and also from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Artists include Connie Conroy, Barbara Wells, Eric Nelsen, Andy Ruble, Hans Nelsen, Doug Lawrie and Jim Wayne; all will be present on First Friday. This show is a fundraiser to support the development of a teaching artist program and additional programs related to art in architecture and design at the gallery.

Margaret in the Hallway will present a collection of paintings of circus cats by Margaret Heffelfinger.

Raven’s Nest will show an original red cedar carving commissioned from Tlingit Master Carver Israel Shotridge and new abalone and black onyx jewelry by Sue Shotridge.

Valise Gallery will present “Flora & Fauna,” an installation by Adrain Chesser and jennifer hawke, reflecting on the intersection of “native and domestic flora in relationship with the invasive species called human.” Photographs, detritus harvested from Quartermaster Harbor and ephemera from the abandoned estate of a reclusive amateur naturalist are included in the installation.

Vashon Intuitive Arts will show Christopher Porter’s acrylic and watercolor paintings.
