From Devrim – the list of who’s where on this Saturday night’s White Center Art Walk:
White Center 3rd Saturday Art Walk – April 16th, 2011 6 PM to 9 PM
Big Al Brewing (9832 14th Avenue SW): Carlos Aguilar- Paint and Ink- -Animated, vibrant & twisted paintings that will make you double-take, every time. Come have a pint of Local Hero #9, play some Wii and absorb a room full of enthusiastic awesome!
Dubsea Coffee (9910 8th Ave SW): Martijn Caspar Swart- New Varied Paintings. http://martijncswart.blogspot.com/– Same artist, more mind blowing. Martin will be rotating new work into Dubsea this month. If you missed last month, stop punishing yourself and go experience his gift. His vibrant colors are married seamlessly in a perfect mixture of abstraction and realism. Guaranteed to drive you to drink more delicious Dubsea coffee so your eyelids keep from wavering during the onslaught of creativity. I purchased a piece from his last show and have absolutely NO buyers remorse! Can’t wait to see it in my house!
Salvadorean Bakery (1719 SW Roxbury): Andrew Miller– MantisArt-Photography. Andrew Miller will blow your righteous eye with his hand painted original photographs. His application of oil on B&W photographs creates a dreamscape of color with biting realism for the hints of pure photo that push through. If you’re lucky, he’ll sweeten the deal with a couple of illustrative line drawings. ‘Vibration’ may be the only go-to word. Don’t forget the Salvadorean Quesadilla to fill your tummy once your artistic desires have been satiated.
Café Rozella (9434 Delridge Way SW): Erik Hoogan- Timeless Portraits. Spot on portraiture of faces we all know and love. Bold, bright and hard to miss- these are worth a stop in and some coffee. They will be sharing wall space with landscape photographer and painter, Renee Bazino who will be showing through May. Just enough time to lounge in the café and slurp down some liquid gold.
Dzul Tattoo (9622-B 16th Ave SW): Katie & Alex- Black & White Photography. Drop in for funky grooves and an eye-full of new body ink. Updated B&W photos of the newest generation of ink, dripping with permanence. This shop has spirit and enough eye-candy to chew on for days.
Company (9608 16th SW): Toshi-?? All we know is that the last batch of artists were awesome. We’re guessing that Toshi won’t disappoint. Drop in, have the beet salad and find out the last name of the artist or just look at the pretty(?) pictures.
3.14 Bakery (9602 16th Ave SW): Rob Johnson- Photography. A Black and White series of landscape photography will be up for ogling. Stop by, grab something on a stick and walk the walls of 3.14.
Full Tilt Ice Cream (9629 16th Ave SW): Megan Thorberg- Prints. Bold lined B&W prints with an interesting twist. Dark & Peppy anyone? Perhaps a scoop of Mexican Chocolate ice cream and a pint of Big Al’ Hop Villain while you inhale the chaos and creativeness?
Proletariat Pizza – (9622-A 16th Ave SW)-Ryann Morris- Painting, Photography & Ceramics-Drop by for a Ham & Egg and see what Rybuy has for you this month. An eclectic mix of craft- meets-form, she finds art in the little things and makes little things into art.
