Artist-to-Artist: Elizabeth Knopf talks with Artist Dara Elish

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

In this edition of SPArts’ monthly artist-to-artist series, Elizabeth Knopf talks with Dara Elish, a fellow South Park Marina river dweller, about making art on boats.

Elizabeth: Hello Dara, my lovely friend and boat neighbor. I think you art is amazing and people need to know more about you, so…

You’re originally from Long Island — how did you end up in the Northwest?

Dara: After studying art for 2 years in North Carolina I determined it wasn’t the place for a Long Island Girl, so I decided to check out Seattle, since we had some family friends here. I started taking classes at Seattle Central and then one day walked by Cornish, and fell in love with the school and eventually attended and received my BFA. » keep reading »

Crafts & Plant Sale Tomorrow 4/16

Friday, April 15th, 2011

It’s sounding like the Spring Craft & Plant Bazaar is the place to be tomorrow.  Three of our righteous artist gals will be there selling their wares. You gotcher Amaranta Sandys, your Bonnie Stenzel and your Michelle Gregory-Van Dyke all in one place. You can’t beat that with a stick.

It’s from 10 – 5 at the Glendale Lutheran School Gym. 13455 2nd Ave SW in Burien.

So the plan for tomorrow is:

  1. Clean the Duwamish 
  2. Buy art & plants 
  3. Celebrate Record Store Day!

Artists Needed for South Park Event!

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

On May 5th, 2011 comes the official ground-breaking for the brand new South Park bridge… And it’s Cinco de Mayo!  To help celebrate, South Park Arts is hosting a live painting event.

We’re looking for 5 artists to paint doors salvaged from the historic “Witches Hat House” while a crowd cheers you on. If you can go from blank “canvas” to a finished piece in an hour, if you love to have an audience watch you work or if you need a deadline to perform… this is your kind of gig.

We’ll provide the doors, the space, the crowd and a $100 stipend for each selected artist.  You’ll supply your favored medium, your talent and your performance skills.

You will paint. The crowd will be mesmerized. There will be music and mingling.  At the end of the event, we’ll auction off the collected works to the hungry art lovers in the crowd.  (All proceeds go to support this and future South Park Arts events!)

When:  Thursday, May 5th.  The painting exhibition will be from 6 – 7 and the auction at 7:30.  The event will be outdoors, but there will be canopies provided in case of rain. 

For more info or to sign up, email Media@southparkarts.org with your name, contact information, some pictures of your art or a link to your website. We must hear from you by 4/21. You’ll hear back from us by 4/28.

Thanks in advance for your interest!

Earwig Studio is Having a Spring Special

Monday, April 11th, 2011

Have you always wanted to record that song you wrote for your high school sweetie? or your own version of Black Sabbath’s ’Masters of Reality’?  Now’s your perfect chance to lay down some tracks.

Our good pal Don Farwell has a recording studio in Georgetown called Earwig Studio. It’s analog. It’s digital. It’s everything you could possibly want. First, check out all his gear! It’s kinda sick. Second, he’s having a promo right this very minute (1/2 off your first recording session) and third, Don’s good to the local peeps, ya know like Dapper Jones. (Hi there, South Park Chip.)

Check out the studio’s Facebook page or the new website or heck, just give the man a call. (206) 763-3333. And let us know when the record’s out!

The place for all your recording needs
