It was an epic Art Under $100 2014!

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Epic. Amazing. Colossal. One giant boat load of fun.

The 10th annual Art Under 100 event was better than we dreamed. The art was brilliant, the shoppers were eager, and the whole space was filled with good cheer. Hours of art, spirits, the perfect music, a South Park Superstar raffle, Makery craftiness, and reconnecting with friends…this was one for the memory books. Over 2000 partiers joined us at the Seattle Design Center for the best and biggest AU100 yet. Thanks for kicking off the holiday season with us. Insanely good times documented below:

Remember, we’re in a new location this year! Join us at the SDC in Georgetown/SoDo.

We’ll have all the best elements in the new digs: the art raffle thrills, beer & wine, food trucks, live DJs, and the Makery! Do NOT miss out on the satisfying, creative fun of the Makery’s all-ages, mobile art lab. Take home a treasure, made by you of reclaimed materials.

And South Park, we love you! We’re providing a free shuttle to get you over the bridge to party with us. Just meet at Loretta’s at the top of the hour (2 pm, 3, 4, etc. through 8 pm) for a ride to the sale. We’ll send the shuttle back to South Park every half hour (2:30, 3:30, 4:30 etc. through 8:30 pm) Make sure to thank Scott Horrell and the Loretta’s gang for sponsoring this service for us!

We can’t wait to see you!

Art Under $100 at Seattle Design Center This Year!

Friday, October 17th, 2014

We have big, big, BIG news. The 10th annual Art Under $100 event will be in a new location this year! Please mark your calendar and google your map…we’ll be at the gorgeous Seattle Design Center in Georgetown/SODO!

We’re so excited about this space. There are lots of perks, including 250 spaces of covered free parking, a gorgeous, multi-level venue (with an elevator) and a giant room for The Makery. If you’re not familiar with The Makery, get acquainted! It’s this incredibly cool mobile art lab for making treasures out of reclaimed materials.

We’ll have food trucks, beer and wine, and all your best friends will be there. There’s a lovely stage for bugle blowing and raffle calling, two gurgling fountains and plenty of room to shop, catch up and mingle.


Please help us spread the word. Even though we couldn’t hold it in our cherished South Park, this is still OUR holiday party. We don’t want to miss seeing single one of you. Just take the shiny new bridge on over to 6th and Orcas in Georgetown. We’re also working on a shuttle service to transport South Parkers to and fro. Details are on the way for that. Don’t miss this party. We’ll have festive cheer waiting for you.

Welcome to the 10th annual AU100: Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 2-9pm

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

AU100 is aiming to return to its roots this year. It began 10 years ago as a way for working or underground artists (mainly from South Park) to create a body of art that would be able to sell for an affordable price. In its early years, each booth was filled with ART – paintings, sculpture, and functional pieces which didn’t appear at other shows. Artists viewed THIS event as a challenge. How can I make work which is affordable, interesting, unique, and one-of-a-kind?

Can you challenge yourself to create functional or decorative objects which are elevated to the sphere of art? How can you make items that are truly ART UNDER $100? Obviously, it is a good idea for artists to have work that ranges in price from very affordable to right up to the $99 mark. This return to our roots isn’t meant to make each artist have only expensive work, but continue to have a range.

Here is the link to this year’s application: Judging criteria will reflect this idea of ART UNDER $100 (as well as extra points for being a SPArtist), so please get busy and start creating for those images you are about to submit!

Deadline is September 21, 2014.

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
