Josh Nihem and Sue Roth

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Josh_Nihem_1We were extra thrilled to hear that some of the crew at the T117 project wanted to get involved too. We love being surprised by hidden talent.

Josh Nihem is a Surveyor and Inspector for the Port of Seattle. In his free time he builds long boards and creates his own designs for them, often with fish themes. He has also been collecting vintage skateboards that are on view.

Port employee Sue Roth has an amazing talent for watercolor.

Be sure to check out her work.

Emily Squire

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

We are thrilled to be featuring the work of Emily Squire, a very talented young artist. Stop by the T117 Project Office and view her work through February.

Emily Squire“I am Emily Squire. I am 25 years old, with a Bachelors of Fine Arts of Art Education from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. I live and work out of Renton, WA currently.

I work with many mediums; my current favorite is watercolor and dye. My style has a broad range especially since I use many mediums. Each medium lends its own strengths and weaknesses to one another.

Other mediums I work with are: Oil, Acrylic, Pen and Ink, Scratch board, Pastels (oil & soft), charcoal, colored pencils, jewelry making, wire wrapping, and three dimensional art such as The Cube.”

  • We’ll have fun party tunes with the return of DJ dpauly and DJ Stack. You’ll probably end up dancing, even if you try not to.
  • The Makery is back! In case you haven’t experienced it, it’s creative, all-ages crafts with an amazing mobile art lab that runs on recycled materials. Take something super sweet home with you!
  • Our epic art raffle lives on with a winner every 30 minutes! You could win your pick of donated art. Crazy, crazy fun.
  • We’ll have festive beverages and light fare inside, plus some rockin’ food trucks outside for more substantial grub.

Speaking of fun, if you have five minutes to spare, you can watch the build-up, the crazy bliss and the final take-down of last year’s Art Under $100 event in a fascinating time lapse video by our friend Jenna Pool. It’ll remind you why there’s no way you can miss this year’s show!

Finally, here’s the Facebook invite to share with your best chums.

Art Under $100 Needs Volunteers!

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

AU1001

 

See that crowd there? That’s the throng of happy shoppers at Art Under $100 2012. What keeps them so happy? Beside the incredible art and atmosphere, it’s a crew of helpful elves behind the scenes. The AU100 volunteers are a cheerful and capable bunch that want to support South Park, their favorite local artists and art in general.

We need help setting up and breaking down before and after the event. And we need help serving food and drinks, selling merchandise and most of all selling raffle tickets! (If you like dressing up—in costume or all elegant-like, chatting up the crowds and bringing in the cash, this is the fun post for you.)  Shifts are a super easy two hour commitment, leaving you plenty of time to shop for yourself.

Want to see the AU100 Volunteer Army at work? Check out this amazing video from last year, courtesy of Jenna Pool. 

If you want to be part of a very fun evening, contact jen@southparkarts.org for more information.
