This is the second entry of SPArts’ new monthly artist-to-artist series, where South Park artists reveal a little about themselves and their work in this little corner of Seattle. In this edition, South Park mixed-media artist Wren Crosley chats with her betrothed, Aaron Cone. In addition to planning a wedding, they recently collaborated on the crowd-pleasing River Horse, a 2010 entry in the Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival. Here they discuss Aaron’s art, growing up with artist parents, and a little bit about his philosophy on life.

Colleen Lindsey has been hard at work on a quilt to be raffled off at the Columbia City Gallery on Sunday, May 23rd from 6:30-8:30 pm to benefit the Volunteer Artists Program (VAP). The event will raise funds to send artists to Uganda to work with the Batwa Pygmies to find a way to sustain themselves. Seattle Times columnist Jerry Large recently wrote a nice profile of Marsha Conn and her work with the Batwa.
The event is free and the raffle tickets for a chance at Colleen’s amazing quilt are only $5!
