Special Event: Perseus II Sculpture, 1st Ave and 85th St


Seattle artist, Miguel Edwards, officially christens his monumental, kinetic sculpture, Perseus II. Constructed from stainless steel, glass and dmx programmable LEDs, Perseus II towers 3.5 stories, straddles the sidewalk and pierces the awning of Janus apartments and 85th Street in Greenwood. In coordination with the Art Up Phinneywood art walk, this event will feature art in and around the Janus apartment building, live performances by Jpeace Lovecircus, as well as the premier of Naked City Brewing’s Perseus II Pale Ale and the release of the Center on Contemporary Art Press’ Perseus II art-book. Enjoy an evening of art, food, beer, books, T-shirts, prints and more in the shadows of towering alien artifice.

Featured Artist: Glen Beebe

Glen Beebe is a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, art collector, and amateur musician, who has lived in the Phinney Ridge area for more than 40 years. Glen’s photographic subjects are as varied as his interests – music, people, architecture, windows, doors, water, patterns, reflections and anything strange. Many of his images have been used as CD album art.

Each photograph has been cropped, color corrected and sharpened, none have been “artistically” enhanced with filters. What you see is how the original image appeared. Any “effects” are mostly the result of In-the-Camera Manipulation.

“Witch Essence”

What does it mean to be a Witch? To call oneself and be called a Witch? To practice a craft that is timeless, yet ever-changing? To be of this world, but also walk in liminal realms and to see the unseen and speak with the unknown? Through mixed media, the artist explores the realm of spirit, spellcraft, and witchery.

Laura Tempest Zakroff is an artist, author, designer, and dancer, based in Seattle, Washington. Laura received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her youth, she trained with honors at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and was the first recipient of the Francis & Shirley Hipp award for excellence in the visual arts from the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts. Her artwork has received awards and recognition worldwide, and has been published in numerous books and magazines.

Laura works mainly in mixed media, combining printmaking techniques with painting and drawing, often using reclaimed wood and layered papers. Her work explores the realm of myth and other liminal spaces.

Featured Artist: Essie the Mermaid

Essie the Mermaid is a 24-year-old Seattle native and owner of Essie Mermaid Photography, a Seattle-based underwater photography business. As an accomplished scuba and apnea diver, underwater photography allows Essie to combine her passion for the environment, imagination and art, and diving into one giant amazing experience. She draws inspiration from fantasy themes to create unique and powerful images underwater.

She prides herself on helping her subjects feel comfortable in the water and has found something deeply rewarding in the process. Being in the water while having your photo taken is the closest thing in this world to magic. Every shot is a completely different take than the last and almost everything in the shot is dependent on the water – the way the light filters beneath the surface, the way that one little movement results in a dramatic change. This is what makes underwater photography such a rewarding and challenging endeavor.

The Art of Greg Colligan
Oil paintings & pin-ups

I was born and raised in Newport News, VA and moved to Seattle in 2004. Art and drawing have always been an interest of mine from an early age. Having dabbled with painting over the years, I have grown a passion for oil painting. I use my own photography for my reference. I also like to paint a still life occasionally, though mostly for study. I like to paint figurative art that is simple, yet complicated, and like life-a bit surreal.

Ken’s Market: 7231 Greenwood Ave N
Art Up and Chow Down Site


Featured Artist: Amelia McGee

As a former editor, I find the concept of editing to be a universal framework. Realizing that art too can be iterative, especially when applied to collage, was liberating, allowing me to enjoy the process of making without worrying about the end product. Nothing in my creative process is wasted—castoffs make fodder for other projects.

Subject-wise, I am inspired by the imperfect geometry of nature. In the repetition of an organic pattern, there is a wide range of extrapolation on any shape, yet all hang together in one gorgeous composition. This dovetails with my love for abstract art, with its paradoxical confined wildness, organized into something that makes you instinctively feel right. Like nature, abstract art can be wild and uneven, yet wholly cohesive.

Ken’s will have their usual array of tasty grab and go food options available.

Portrait of Barba family

Featured Artist: Julia Tatiya

My artwork contrasts the materiality of feminine craft with more masculine digital/electrical cabling and bare screws, creating a peculiarity to these fun pieces, that makes them contest gender norms. For those that know the crafts of knitting and crocheting, the textured patterns in many of these pieces will be familiar. Growing up having learned to knit and crochet from my mother, the use of such forms in my work is deeply personal. With knitting, crocheting, weaving, and basket weaving techniques, I look to have their labor and materiality emote in my work. The cables put on display in my artwork create discourse on their utility or lack thereof, especially in the context of society keeping wires out of sight and the movement to go wireless. By mixing traditional craft with electrical cable materials, I’ve taken two contrasting forms with functions and stripped them of their function so they can be viewed formally in a beautiful and quirky way. These almost monochromatic pieces are complex yet simple and are meant to be lighthearted and playful.

In addition, Arbor Creative Media will screen a line up of free PG family-friendly films.
