7020 Greenwood Ave N
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! Artists present.

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

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.

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.
