The Artist Roster for AU100 2015!

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

We’re thrilled to present this year’s artist roster for AU100 2015. We’ve got artists that have sold with us from the very beginning and artists that are brand new to AU100 too.

These artists are tasked with a very specific challenge—whatever their medium, elevate their work to the level of art and keep it accessible to all of us. Check out their lovely artist pages to see some of their pieces, find out about their process and how their work fits in with Art Under $100’s vision.

Then see it all in person at the 11th Annual AU100 on 12/12. If you want to get up close and personal with the artists and have first dibs on their wares, get yourself a ticket to the AU100 VIP hour from 1-2pm. Doors open to all at 2 for free.

Application for Art Under $100 2015 – Now Available!

Monday, August 31st, 2015

This weekend’s weather seems like a seasonal tap on the shoulder to remind us about Art Under $100. It’s been a spectacular summer, but it’s time to peek around the corner.

For artists this means thinking about your booth, creating like mad and filling out the Art Under $100 application! We’ll be at the lovely Seattle Design Center for the second year in a row. However, a couple of changes to note: the 11th annual AU100 shebang will be on the second Saturday of December (so 12/12/15) AND we’ll be starting and ending an hour earlier, so from 1pm – 8pm.

For now, here’s the important date to remember. Applications are due by October 1st! You could do the crazy thing and get ‘er done right now! Feel free to spread the word to all interested parties and best of luck to all the applicants.



May 2015 SP Arts meeting

Friday, May 15th, 2015
     Held on 05/03/2015. In attendance:  Bill, Wendy, Barbara, Bonnie, Colleen, Raina, Antonia, Lisa
Topics Covered:
     Bandshell (similar to this)-  Dan on the river will take it temporarily (it has to be moved from storage at Dale’s by June 1), but the goal is to install at permanent spot, possibly at Marra Farms.  In temporary spot at Dan’s place it will be visible by river and get some notice and maybe press about our scrappy arts group…  Marra Farm may have some funding.  Parks Dept. say they want community input  but haven’t taken steps to aquire it, and historically haven’t always listened.  Bill will email Raina, Dan, Dale and Meredith regarding: next steps and getting moving equipment.   Dan has a bobcat, we still need a flatbed truck. Possibly SPARKS and Dan can fund rental.
     Duwamish Revealed-  Bill is processing over 50 contracts for artists and other people involved in this summer-long festival full of art on the Duwamish… big event with half million in funding grants.  From Jack Block Park  to tour of the City of Tukwila, along and parallel to river.  Known projects: East Asian Festival -with lanterns on the river (need ideas for biodegradable/ecologically friendly material for lanterns), Latino Festival, flower arch, lucha libre, looking for trajineras. Goal is to help different groups organize and complete projects.
     Artist Catherine Grisez is creating Cultivate to be installed in June for the Duwamish Revealed. It’s a recycled art project with help of the community. It will be made of  large panels hanging off the South Park bridge, and will require lots of aluminum cans and plastic 1 liter and 2 liter bottles…. Art/work parties are tentatively scheduled every week in May: Wednesday evening at Loretta’s Northwestern, and Saturday afternoon at Lowercase Brewery (no age limit.) Check the Facebook page for updates. Bring gloves (to protect hands from sharp edges), scissors, stapler and utility knife. Spare tools are provided.
     International Market Night at Concord Elementary-  May 28th, Colleen will help and maybe Antonia to do kid project dealing with gardens, beneficial bugs, growing food, our environment…
     2015 Putts Out (link to last year) – Tuesday August 4, 2015   Call for holes to go out soon. Raina wants to do Seattle Tilth booth and hole, Bill wants to try to get softball team to do a hole, Antonia suggested youth summer camps to do one.  Someone suggested  Colleen do a Roller Derby Hole. Wendy suggested to partner again with Community Center to do food again.  Raina will put call out for beer again, we got a good deal on keg from Georgetown last year.  Barbara suggested having tables on either end of Thistle Street.  (Carmen has Duwamish Valley Youth Corps of kids that can help do tasks, maybe clean-up?)

Bonnie suggested putting out message board with our calendar of events for the year on it…
