JUNE ARTWALK  6.16.2012

3.14 (9602 16th Ave SW): James Arnold- ~   James paints primarily on recycled canvas and pegboard.  He suggests an original pegboard may be the perfect Fathers Day Gift you're looking for... And for the perfect gift for yourself, indulge in a 3.14 'CAKE-BALL'.  The peanut butter cake-ball dipped in dark chocolate might possibly be the edible art favorite of the month.  Artwalk tastes great!

Big Al Brewing (9832 14th Avenue SW): Student Art  ~ Big Al's is brewing brew AND art!  So while wetting your whistle, whistle a WOW over the photographic art of our local students, two of whom received The Select ribbon for their photos in the Washington State High School Photography Competition. Visual Arts Teacher Sarah Cliff-Roberston proudly states, "There were over 4,000 entries from schools around the state, including work from students that have taken photography courses for years."   

CafĂ© Rozella (9434 Delridge Way SW): Marc Samuelsson ~ exhibits photographs taken on eastern Europea film in Phnon Penh and countryside.  Living with and among the people, Marc captures moments of life on the other side of the planet. Thank you, Rozella's, our 'touch of French' countryside art-cafe, for bringing a touch of the East to White Center.  
Company (9608 16th SW): Lily Warner ~ Well, well, Lily's photographic diversity takes her from weddings to Seattle's semi-pro wrestlers.  So ditch the wedding rehearsal and come in for your favorite drink...or try something new...follow Lily's example and branch out.  Add some fritters or a certainly won't need to wrestle one of those down! 

Dubsea (9910 8th Ave SW): Erika Rier ~ is a fine artist and dressmaker whose work represents a mish-mash of dreams, daily life, books read, and music listened to.  She works primarily in ink with splashes of gouache color.

Full Tilt Ice Cream (9629 16th Ave SW): michael notzen ~ is a graphic/photographic artist who's illustrations reveal a keen eye and whimsical perspective fused into skillful illustrations that will catch your eye and your himsey.
No need to remind you to indulge in the now famous ice cream.  The days of creation keep adding on the 777th day (or there-about) the peanutbutter-chocolate-cookie-crunch-I-can't-remember-all-the-ingredient yumminess was created!

Herbal Legends-Medical Marijuana Dispensary (9619 16th Ave SW): Devrim Ozkan ~  One of White Center's favorites, brings her own legend in paint and ink to the window and walls of 9619.  Devrim's colors are as organic as her compositions.  They almost grow before your eyes!   9619 may never let go of Jenna Colby work which still adds to the dark side of precious moments ambiance.  Drop by after never know what kind of party may be in session: music, dancing, pool, snacking,'ll help make it legend!

Proletariat Pizza – (9622-A 16th Ave SW)- Megan Woodward ~  Strength in color, strength in image, Megan's palette will enhance your already eager palette in selecting from the varied and irresistible pizza palette of the Proletariat.  Marinara, pesto, pepperoni, sausage, provolone, asiago, gorgonzola and mozzarella, basil.....choose your palette!

Salvadorean Bakery (1719 SW Roxbury):  "Outsider Artists" is the new kid on the block in the arena of art genres, but as old as the hills, or caves, in terms of production.  It is raw, unprocessed art created by people untouched by artistic culture.  These artists are primarily local artists with disabilities who obsessively create whatever comes into their heads!  "Faces of Community" is curated by ArtAbility Faire.  And to balance the outsider art you can make your insides happy with a delicious Chile Relleno, the Salvadorean Father's day Special!

TILTON FINE METALSMITHING (9052 Delridge Way): Matthew Tilton and Eric Balaban's metal fabrications seem to be the art walking the streets of White Center.   Check out the Mutant Metal Mixing Constructions.  NOT OPEN SATURDAY ARTWALK EVENING!

Southgate Roller Rink (9646 17th Ave SW): The second round of sculpture skates were unveiled in May so if you haven't had a chance to roll your eyes over the the new additions, skate in and have some fun!  Be part of the "IN" crowd at this "happenin" locale!

Zippy’s Giant Burgers (9614 14th Ave SW): Erik Hoogen ~ lives his art and his art lives him.  He has literally painted his way around the world leaving footprints (his artwork) everywhere: From K2 Snowboards in the mountains to The Noon coffee shop in Amsterdam to the walls of his hometown on Vashon Island.  Erik has invested his entire life into his artwork and his art into his life! And judging by the line I had to wait in last night I don't need to remind you to EAT!!!  I mean I'm hearing now that folks are coming over from Bellevue for their business lunches!!!
