"Damn why they gotta stick me for my paper"

This pretty much sums up the "American Experience". I have been watching footage of the sheer devastation happening in NOLA. Was there some kind of Nostradamus thing I missed. 2005 is kicking some ass.

Bumbershoot Visual Arts Gala

I know it's a bit last minute but everybody should check out the Bumbershoot Visual Arts Gala Tonight. It's the closest thing to an actual survey of what is happening in art here in Seattle all in one place. Here's some info for you---

The Outside Institute

The Outside Institute is a new gallery in London that focuses on the ever expanding "Urban Art" world. Europeans definately seem to be embracing street art as a significant element to global culture. Perhaps we may one day see a gallery like Western Bridge focus on Urban Art here in Seattle.

I ain't a hater, I'm a disliker

The other day I did a stroll through Capital Hill to see what was happening in the galleries up there. Of course I was refused the opportunity to take a photo of the work on display at Goods, this place seems to think it exists outside of the community or something. Whatever... I decided that I should check out the Charles Glaubitz show at Blue Bottle. Holy sh#t this is the real deal. I really loved the work here, definately the best I have seen this summer. I totally suggest seeing this, maybe even buying something because the work is totally underpriced. It's funny regarding pricing in Seattle, artists seriously have to undercut themselves to make any sales and even then they struggle to get sales. Whats with that? any way here are a couple flix from the Glaubitz show. As for the work by Iosefatu Sua, Peekaboo, and Angry Woebots at Goods............ sorry guys.

Shawn Wolfe at OKOK August 19

Shawn Wolfe, One of Seattles most celebrated graphic designers, is having a show at OKOK this friday, August 19. It should be pretty good especially since we are talking about a local legend. Man you wouldn't believe the amount of times I've heard how this dude took on the Hells Angels and the Banditos in Reno for a bit of High Stakes Mahjong and woke up the next day with a necklace made of Ears and ponytail stretchies. You better not test. OKOK is located at 709 Broadway E. Seattle Wa 98102

Monsters terrorize local nightclub

This past friday there was a pretty cool live painting thing happening at LoFi with local artist collective "Pocketfull of monsters". It's pretty cool to see artists getting busy like that, watching the techniques that they use and just seeing them create. I guess this is a growing trend across the nation, not only in clubs but in spaces like Hotel Des Arts in SF or the Barnstormers public art attack on rural buildings.

Schmancy Presents Plush You!, a Showcase of Plush Toys

Schmancy, a Belltown toy store and gallery, is proud to
present PLUSH YOU!, an art show featuring over fifty emerging plush
artists from around the world. Kristen Rask, owner of Schmancy, has
organized PLUSH YOU! as a public showcase of the DIY toy phenomenon
featuring local, national, and international artists. The show runs
August 12 – September 9. Schmancy is located at 1930 2nd Ave in

In light of the proliferation of handmade, limited release plush toys,
Rask will display pieces that reflect this niche art’s growing
following and collectibility. Contributing artists include
Stuart Bloomfield, Beck Wheeler, Heidi Kenney, and David Huyck.

Rask remarks “Plush is exploding right now. These are basically
one-of-a-kind toys that are inventive, surprising and often disarming.
If it’s cute and fuzzy, can it be serious art? If a two-year old can’t
play with it, is it really a toy? It’s an engaging medium.” 100 works
will hang at Schmancy during the run of Plush You!.

The opening reception will be held on August 12th at 5 pm. Wine and
appetizers will be provided and several artists will be in attendance.
