Laura Goularte, originally from the California central coast, is a long-time Seattle dweller and current Broadview resident who rarely leaves home without a camera. Capturing the image of a fleeting ‘wow’ moment never ceases to humble and delight her (and it can also serve as a visual complement to a mind’s eye memory). The photos in this show were taken with an android phone or long zoom camera over the last two years, at a variety of locations: mostly Northwest, some in California and a few in Argentina.

Musicians playing live music include:  Lesleigh Reinfried (piano), Enrique Wetzel & Rebecca Garcia (guitar), Rowan Dowell (upright bass) & Randy Dowell (piano).  Artists present.

In The Red Wine Bar & Cafe: 6510 Phinney Ave N
Featuring mixed media and oil paintings by Corinna Sinclair.

About the artist: My name is Corinna and I’m a Seattle and Kona Based Visual Artist and Graphic Designer. I work in a variety of media and my favorite is oil, pencil, pastels, and watercolors. I also like to experiment with modeling and photography projects. I appreciate art in all forms, style, and media. My paintings are somewhat rustic, and each original work has it’s own unique character. I lean a lot on simplicity and bold color. I see hands on art just as important as art created digitally. Exotic ports of call are captured in oil. Most of my work reflects my imagination, emotion, and my personality. Many of my earlier work shows my life growing up in Seattle and Kona, Hawaii – from tropical landscapes to Pacific Northwest moonscapes. Today I paint all kinds of subjects and I continue to grow and experiment with different mediums. Eventually I’d like to focus more on mixed media projects. I look forward to a lifetime of painting.

Hourglass Footwear Trunk Sale at Tasty: Wed, Sept 25th 6-9pm

Hourglass Event-Tasty

From the Red Carpet at the VMA’s to Tasty’s Trunk Sale, Hourglass Footwear is making headlines across the globe and it all started with two women, here in Seattle, barely a year ago. http://www.seattlemet.com/style-and-shopping/shop-talk/articles/customized-in-seattle-august-2013

Here’s the story of Hourglass Footwear in their own words:
http://www.hourglassfootwear.com/aboutus.asp

ONE NIGHT ONLY at TASTY!
Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 from 6-9pm
7513 Greenwood Ave N. Seattle, WA 98103
(206) 706-3020

HANDPAINTED CUSTOM SHOES + JEWELRY + CHOCOLATE WINE + BEATS + PICS

It’s a TRUNK SALE for HOURGLASS footwear that will include jewelry by Manya Vee, chocolate wine sips from the Chocolate Shop, unique music beats by DJ Miss Shelrawka and a photobooth provided by Vitamin Dee.

Here’s some background on the participants…

Hourglass Footwear
These 9 ladies bring a whole new meaning to wearing art. We met the founders, Kira Bundlie and Lisa Strom at Urban Craft Uprising this past summer, whose mission is to help their customers express their unique style and personality through original hand-painted footwear. We immediately started a plan to bring their triple sealed footwear to Tasty shoppers.

Chocolate Shop
NBC’s The Today Show called their chocolate wine “Pure Heaven” and the Wine Spectator blessed it as their favorite chocolate-flavored red wine. What? You haven’t tried it yet. With 7 varieties currently available, there are so many ways to indulge. In 2012 they pulled in some nice awards for their chocolate red wine too. Join us for a taste…

Manya Vee Jewelry
Her new line of contemporary pieces were created to stand the test of time and get handed down as treasures from one generation to the next. They blend Japanese simplicity with Western sophistication.

Miss Shelrawka
Her “about us” says that she blasted onto the Seattle music scene with an army of melodies and a head full of funk. We like her already. A transplant from nyc where she was known for lighting up the dance floors, “her mixing is as clean as her track selection is nasty!” come listen with us, she’s said their could be some funk saturated bass-lines!

Vitamin Dee Photography
Get snapped in your new heels by Dee. This is a girl who after posting a photo on MySpace of DJ Sneak at Escape in Amsterdam, was asked to become a rep for Om Records in NYC. Plus her photo of Andy Dick in LA was published in PDN (Photo District News) as a Top 100 Finalist in the annual One Life Photography Competition and she still finds time to be featured in Seattle’s annual Erotic Art Festival.

*Yet another arts event that is part of WEAVE’s month long festival. Learn more about Seattle’s Urban & New Contemporary Art Fest by visiting weaveseattle.com, runs September 5-28.

Sept_Ludlow

Ludlow: 7315 Greenwood Ave N
Artwork by Kelly Rae Cunningham.

About the Artist: My paintings began as slabs of clay, ceramic glazes, and the same tools that I use today to apply, layer, and scrape away paint. I fell in love with mixing colors and the smell of oil paint and turpentine, so I turned from clay to canvas. My work is strongly influenced by the materials I work with, not only their physical properties but their history. I paint with many mediums as they lend different qualities to the process: oil for the saturation of color and patience, acrylic for speed, collage and layering for depth, and encaustics (oil and wax) as it is tactile and most like working with clay. My paintings employ layers of color, boldly worked with palette knives and brushes. Artist present.

Sept_Magestic

Reverse glass art by Chris Raine. Artist present.

Neptune Coffee: 8415 Greenwood Ave N
Artwork by Jonathan Wakuda Fischer. Combining studies of traditional Japanese art with modern process and content, his work seeks to address a post-globalized world as well as his own personal biracial history. Using the aesthetic of ukiyo-e woodblock prints, I combine anachronisms and layers of homage to explore cultural dualities. In doing so, I feel like I am part of a centuries-old artistic discourse that has long addressed lineage, obsolesence and appropriation. Plus live music by Delilah Pearl and the Mantarays playing jazz standards from the era of Peggy Lee and Billy Holiday, from 7-9pm. Artist present.

Hosting neighborhood cookbook author, Jess Thomson. Jess will be promoting her newest book which she co-authored with Ivar’s Restaurant: Ivar’s Seafood Cookbook. She is also the author of, Dishing Up Washington, Pike Place Market Recipes and Top Pot Hand-Forged Donuts.

Also hosting Daniel Cook, Glass Artist: Daniel L. Cook, a Phinneywood resident and biophysics professor, is primarily a figurative graphics artist but has recently turned to 3-dimensional work that exploits the transparency, solidity, and immediacy of casting glass as an expressive medium. His recent pieces are based on a single facial form, initially sculpted in clay, that appears in both positive and negative impressions. Interlaced with color elements, these forms play to layered themes of psychological opacity, reflectivity, and revelation.

Stretch and Staple: 8005 Greenwood Ave N
Art site providing light h’orderves and beverage. High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography on Canvas by Taylor McAtee. McAtee has amassed quite the collection of urban and natural scenery from local landmarks to exotic vistas, all the while providing a viewpoint that is distinctly different and transports the viewer to another world.

Film photography to Giclée prints on canvas by Joel Clarin. Joel chooses to work with traditional film cameras, then creates traditional silver gelatin prints or Giclée prints on canvas. Joel tends to prefer black and white images, because it further abstracts the image from the actual space and time it was recorded. His subjects are ‘landscapes’ that attempt to find the grandeur within the ‘ordinary’ and often overlooked. Artists present.

Our annual mixed media showcase includes 15 regional artists: Craig van den Bosch, Deviant Décor, Elise Koncsek, Eric Edwards, Frances Herring, Gretchen Fuller, Heather Scholl, Jere Smith, Kate Eggelston-Wirtz, Lampcycle, Manya Vee, Marty Gordon, Olvera Designs, RedHardwick and Wilky.

This mixed media showcase will by definition feature creative talent who create visual art using more than one medium. Specific to MIX & MAKE, we favored artists who work in collage and 3-dimensions, and thus the artists have to produce or manufacture their artworks using a more tactile process. We are excited to showcase art that has been invented, in addition to traditionally painted pieces. Artists present.

Kanga photographs to create a connection… to capture a pose, a thought, a glimpse, a moment. Whatever the situation, the images stir up unexpected feelings for him. Transcending time, his mind takes him back to the moments when a smile is pure inspiration, when eyes respond to a friendly gesture, when the laughter of children brings down boundaries, when a brilliant scene is heavenly communion. These are moments caught in stillness to stir movement within one’s inner depth. His photography is a blend of fine art, documentary and street photography.

As the series evolves, her pieces have grown in scale, and include more expressive brushstrokes, and additional media such as oil paint, pastel, and charcoal into the images. Artist present.

Between Two Worlds, Fire Walk With Me on my time in Twin Peaks. Diane, I think these artists even had detailed accounts of my dreams. It’s really something to see, Diane.” The show is curated by Echo Echo Gallery. We’re a group of artists from Seattle that put on a monthly show at The Greenwood Collective for the Phinneywood Second Friday art walk. After a few meetings where we kept talking about Twin Peaks we thought, “Why not just do a Twin Peaks show?”. Of course, we couldn’t keep this amazing idea to ourselves, so we recruited other talented Seattle artists to join in
showing their work inspired by the show. We’ll be supplying the pie and coffee, DJ Shane Deegan will be bringing the Twin Peaks sound and guests are encouraged to dress as your favorite character.

August is a special artwalk for the Phinneywood neighborhood – we close the streets and invite everyone out! Look for our Twin Peaks themed games outside and follow the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign for art.

Ireland panoramic by Doug Plummer. The western edge of Ireland, particularly County Clare, captured me like no other place on earth. I approached the landscape and the culture with an investigative curiosity, and a deeply felt connection that defies explanation. Maybe it is the stories, unknown to me, the outsider, that have been attached to the land and carry a force that affects my gaze. It is certainly the look of that inimitable landscape, shaped by thousands of years of human habitation to the point where architecture has melded into geology. Whatever the source, the resulting photographs are my attempt to extract meaning from the encounter.

Doug Plummer is a commercial and fine art photographer and filmmaker. He is widely published around the world in advertisements and magazines, and has had numerous one-man and group shows around the country. He is a graduate of The Evergreen State College and resides in Seattle’s Bryant neighborhood with his wife Robin and their cat Shadow. Artist present.

Presenting 10 year old abstract artist, Jaden Mansfield.

Artist Bio:
My name is Jaden Mansfield.  I am 10 years old and will be starting 5th grade this year at St John School.  I did my first painting when I was 3 ½ years old.  I thought of it after we went to the Seattle Art Museum and I saw Robert Rauschenberg’s Octave. Over a few years I have learned to make much larger abstract  paintings filled with more brilliant colors, textures and new materials. I love Jackson Pollock and how all of his paint is poured on from a can or dripped on with a paint brush.  I do both of those things too in my paintings but I do them in a different way.  I am very excited to be able to show my work at Summer Streets.

Works Progress to Celebrate National Coworking Week & Host New Artist David McCrae! Join us at Works Progress to celebrate the last day of National Coworking Week! This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about coworking and how to get involved. Refreshments will be served and we’ll be showing art from artist David McCrae.

About the artist:
I began photographing with a Kodak Brownie and started learning the process of photography from my grandparents in Colorado, both dedicated amateur photographers and naturalists. Process was left behind for theory while studying art history at the University of California, San Diego, although chemistry and the beach kept interfering.

The history of photography is replete with examples of image capture without a camera. This series, ‘From a Scanner, Darkly,’ began when travel schedules left no time to work with film. Instead, the rapidly emerging technologies of scanner, computer and inkjet printer became my substitute for photosensitive materials and a darkroom. The subject matter came from the pantry and the garden. Food and flowers; simple subjects but not mundane, for they feed the body and the mind.

We shop weekly at the Pike Place Market for our food. Over the years we have developed relationships with a number of vendors, including DeLaurenti’s, Don and Joe’s Meats, Pike Place Fish, Frank’s Quality Produce, Alm Hill Farm and Pike and Western Wines. We share lives, recipes and beauty with these people. I have started photographing their products to honor them for what they provide

Featured artwork is photography by Cara Kennedy.  All the photos were taken with a low-tech Holga film camera.  The film was then developed and digitally scanned, worked on a bit in Lightroom, and then printed as a digital image.  Most of the pictures are of surfers in Hawaii, but then there are a few other images of London, Chicago and the Grand Canyon.  Using the Holga is fun and adds a vintage feel to the images.

Wilder Reinfried Duo: Boasting a combined 36 years of musical experience, pianist Lesleigh Reinfried and violinist Lauren Wilder bring an inexhaustible charm and brilliance to their performance style. Individually, Wilder and Reinfried have performed at international venues and studied under world-class performers. As educators and performers, they showcase their versatility from the classroom to the concert hall, breathing life into repertoire from classical, to French tangos, to pop favorites, and everything in between!

Makeda
: 153 N. 78th Street
The encaustics showing at Makeda Coffee are selected paintings of Carissa Meier’s work from 2010 to 2013.  These pieces explore relationships, truth, and identity; within the relationship between beeswax, color, and imagery. The encaustic process as a medium is fitting due to its layered nature as the beeswax allows for clarity, translucency, or mystery. The concepts took shape on their journey with the wax; and the images were transferred and manipulated using the encaustic processes of heating, layering, burnishing, painting, and incising. Artist present.

Neptune Coffee: 8415 Greenwood Ave N
Drie Chapek’s work is emotional and physical. She uses brush work, texture and color as codes to convey inner self portraits. Ambiguities of space and scale, the relationship between the micro and the macro are explored as they relate to the viewer physically and visually.  Her surfaces are poured on, built up and torn down-aggressive textured layers in one moment become gently coaxed brush strokes the next. Greyed cool colors come from the intelect and force tension upon warm colored massive physical forms. The work is intended to be experienced as an installation on canvas, a raw painting left open to be completed by the veiwing experience. Artist present.

Oliver’s Twist: 6822 Greenwood Ave N
Acrylic on canvas art by Ariel Millihart. A chic display of fantastical freaks presented in acrylic on canvas with bling!  Come see mystical creatures, undead pinups and blossoming beauties!  A bright lurrid funhouse of magic and thrills. Artist present.

Stop by for light hors d’oeuvres and beverages. McAtee has amassed quite the collection of urban and natural scenery from local landmarks to exotic vistas, all the while providing a viewpoint that is distinctly different and transports the viewer to another world.

Joel chooses to work with traditional film cameras, then creates traditional silver gelatin prints or Giclée prints on canvas. Joel tends to prefer black and white images, because it further abstracts the image from the actual space and time it was recorded. His subjects are ‘landscapes’ that attempt to find the grandeur within the ‘ordinary’ and often overlooked. Artist present.

Tasty
: 7513 Greenwood Ave N
July’s art walk at Tasty will be a very unique shopping experience. While our featured art exhibit, Hot Rods & Honey’s remains up for all to oogle, we’ll be hosting a clothing designer from San Francisco inside our shop on Friday, July 12th, from 6-10pm.

Some details about the artist:
Paula Fletcher is one trouble-making, hyper-creative Scorpio, who can make a dress and pair of pants in 20 minutes – and takes living on her own terms, as literally as one person can. Fashion designer of 15 + years, her label, Dumb Clothing, is worn and sold all over the country.

From a stand at outdoor craft markets in Seattle and Portland, to a storefront in Soho, to pop-up retail trunk sales, to its current happy home in San Francisco, Dumb Clothing has paralleled the free-spirit of its creator and founder.

Dumb Clothing is about having a sense of humor and feeling free enough to express yourself with your clothing. Being stopped on the street to receive compliments is the added bonus. COME GET YOURS! Art Up night at Tasty.
