Davis Limbach at HippoSchemes

I recently stepped through the doors of HippoSchemes , a tiny shop on 12th ave between Pike and Pine, to see what they had going on. They make clothes and bags out of old clothing, show art, and generally make you feel as though you are in the East Village. Seattle definately could use more spaces like this because it is pure inspiration to folks doing it on their own terms. The artist that they are currently showing in the shop is Davis Limbach who does characters he calls "Pudges" on found wood panels.

I enjoyed the work as well as the hospitality of the shop owners. One very cool element they are bringing to the art shows they have is something they call St. Sweepers. The artist goes around the neighborhood and mounts pieces to phonepoles to create a visual tour of sorts. Check out Hipposchemes to learn more and get a map of the current art tour.
