U-District Barber Shop

Image
I happened to be wondering around the U-District the other morning and came across this shot.  I'm curious of what people think of the square instragram format.  Has it become to synonymous with lazy, cell phone photography?  Regardless, I am happy for the return of the snapshot!

Whidbey Island

Image
Here is a photo from my day trip to Whidbey Island last week.  On my trip I heard a great speech on sweets, had an amazing pastry, and picked up some used books.  Not too shabby.  I have been living in the Northwest for ten years now and I have not yet seen an orca though.  Perhaps this will happen in 2013?

Featured Artist Monday|Yayoi Kusama

Image
I may have had Kusama on here before but I figured we all good benefit from a second post.  Here is more information about how they recently installed one of these firefly rooms at the Whitney.  There is also a similar installation at the Phoenix Art Museum.

Ladies' Choice at Greg Kucera

I am in a new show opening on Thursday, November 15 at Greg Kucera Gallery in Seattle.  It's called Ladies' Choice and I'll be exhibiting with some of my all time favorite artists!  Please come check it out or visit the online gallery if you're not willing to fly to Seattle tomorrow.

Affordable Art Fair, November 8-11

Image
The Affordable Art Fair is happening next week in Seattle from November 8-11 and if there is one that I love it is some good ol' affordable art!  I'm usually one to trade or collect on the cheap so it will be interesting to see a line up of local and regional galleries all exhibiting in Seattle over the weekend.

Here's a full list of exhibitors and I'm looking forward to seeing the selection of PDX Contemporary, M.I.A. Gallery, and of course SEASON.

City Arts Fest images

Image
Here are images from my recent collaboration with Ian for the City Arts Fest.  Many thanks to Sierra and the City Arts crew.  It was awesome to be a part of the show and also to experiment with some costuming and sculpture.

Now that costume design is on my mind I was struck by this piece by the painter goncharova.  More on her costumes and art.

City Arts Fest

Image
Ian and I collaborated on an installation for the City Arts Fest Culture Club in Seattle next week.  I have been wanting to branch out into costuming and this was a great chance to both work with Ian and experiment with some new styles.  Thanks to the City Arts folks for hooking us up with this gig!

box of rain

Image
This is my song of the week.  Please excuse the live version, however, I think this version is probably more appropriate to hear/watch when thinking of the Grateful Dead.

featured artist monday|sherry levine (!)

Image
I just saw that this piece is at Elles:SAM!  Levine is one of my favorites and this piece is extra awesome in person.  This view is a little obstructed so you'll have to go see it at SAM.
