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:

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_InTheRed

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.

Fine art photography, jewelry and acrylic paintings by Alexis Henry, Sayla Rasmussen and Jon Moore. Artists present.

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

Majestic Arts Presents: 129 NW 85th Street, Suite B
“The Dead Possum Collective” featuring five innovative photographers and digital artists: M. Collin-Zoe Horne, Billy Grenades, Rich Mealey, Mark Swanson and Nathan Dziewiontkoski. Artists present.

Naked City: 8564 Greenwood Ave N
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.

Santoro’s Books: 7405 Greenwood Ave N
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.

Sept_Tasty

Tasty: 7513 Greenwood Ave N
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.
