Putts Out Featured in Arts & Cultural Affairs 2010 Report

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Violet commanding The Urban Jungle

There it is. On page 10 of the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs Annual Report. If you really want to geek out, you can download the whole report and read it here. Or you can just skip to the cool part –the South Park Putts Out part. The hole pictured is Elizabeth and Bird’s winning ’Urban Jungle’, the hole that received the most votes from the neighborhood, and man, was it close.

We’re looking forward to this year’s creations and hoping it’s just as hard to pick your favorite. Start firing up those ideas and collaborations!

Hi Violet!

Artist-to-Artist: Elizabeth Knopf talks with Artist Dara Elish

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

In this edition of SPArts’ monthly artist-to-artist series, Elizabeth Knopf talks with Dara Elish, a fellow South Park Marina river dweller, about making art on boats.

Elizabeth: Hello Dara, my lovely friend and boat neighbor. I think you art is amazing and people need to know more about you, so…

You’re originally from Long Island — how did you end up in the Northwest?

Dara: After studying art for 2 years in North Carolina I determined it wasn’t the place for a Long Island Girl, so I decided to check out Seattle, since we had some family friends here. I started taking classes at Seattle Central and then one day walked by Cornish, and fell in love with the school and eventually attended and received my BFA. » keep reading »

Artist-to-Artist: Elizabeth Knopf chats with SPArts founder Wendy Woldenberg

Friday, November 12th, 2010

For the latest installment of our Artist-to-Artist series, South Park Arts founder Wendy Woldenberg chats with Elizabeth Knopf. Both are fantastically creative jewelry makers who draw on found objects — Wendy uses natural forms to create jewelry in precious metals while Elizabeth represents nature by upcycling discarded materials. Both are veterans of Art Under $100 and will be happy to see you at the 2010 sale!

Elizabeth: Wendy, I am wondering how long have you been making jewelry and what some of your favorite materials to work with are?

Wendy: I started making jewelry to help pay my rent back in 1990. At the time, I mainly used wire and fimo clay, and sold everything for $5. With every piece I made and sold, I became more and more addicted to the sense of accomplishment. Lately, I have been really into using yellow gold and brightly colored faceted gemstones. But, I also like to use shells, river rocks, beach glass, and white metals, too.

When did you start making jewelry and what materials do you like to use?
