Live Painting at the Bridge Celebration

Friday, June 27th, 2014

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.
  • Dale Dolejsi – B.F.A. University of Washington, M.F.A. Claremont Graduate University, Currently teaching at Kennedy Catholic High School, Represented by Andrew Rose Gallery, Honolulu Hawaii (
  • Carrissa Falkenstein – (°1979, Colorado, United States) makes drawings, paintings, sculptures and mixed media artworks. Carrissa Falkenstein currently lives and works in Seattle.
  • Shellie Park
  • 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).
  • Kristin Tollefson 
  • Angelina Tolentino
  • Angelina Villalobos – 179 combines folklore, the Pacific Northwest, and a sense of humor to her paintings.
  • Molly West – Molly West is a South Seattle native who enjoys working with mixed media and acrylic paints

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.”
