After four long years, South Park’s bridge will reopen. Join us this Sunday June 29th. 2014 to celebrate. The full details from King County are here:
And South Park Arts is hosting a Live Painting Event for the celebration. We’ll be on 14th Ave S, between Dallas and Cloverdale (between band stage and beer garden) with a bunch of local artist creating art for the event at the event!
Come join us from noon to 2pm as artists complete individual 2ft panels that will then be assembled into a collage piece 4ft high by 16ft long. Come cheer the artists, chat with SP Arts members, and participate in deciding our final collage assemblage.
Here is a list of participating artists:
- Yedem Alamo
- Nicole Chabot – As a child, Nicole spent much of her time drawing, imagining and tromping through the woods of the Pacific Northwest. These early adventures nurtured a deep love for the wild places, and provided fertile ground for a rich inner life. At 18 she moved to Los Angeles, where she studied makeup and immersed herself in LA’s thriving underground art scene. During Nicole’s time at Cinema Makeup School, she refined her artistic sensibilities developing characters through makeup and color. She would soon trade makeup for acrylic paint, and begin translating the visions of her intrinsic world into surreal landscapes and portraits on canvas. She currently lives in the Seattle area.

- Teresa Payne – am the owner and imagination behind Intense Payne. I studied Visual Communications at The Art Institute of Seattle, with a focus in illustration. I studied Fashion Design and Construction at The New York Fashion Academy of Seattle, where I also taught Storyboard Design & Construction, as well as Fashion Illustration. I have designed costumes for local bands and independent films. I have coordinated visual artists for DJ art parties in Seattle, at venues such as the Capitol Hill Arts Center, The Seattle Aquarium, and The Pacific Science Center. I work in many mediums and genres, letting the creativity take me where it will.
- Melanie Prowse – I was born and raised in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. I’ve always been interested in the arts; preferred medium up until college was charcoals and pastels. I also did quite a bit of pottery growing up. In college I started sketching and eventually transitioned into acrylics. I haven’t really looked back! I’ve admittedly never sold a single painting! I have about two dozen (if not more!) of my pieces floating around the state and beyond (New Zealand).
