Factory vs Academy Continues with B. Wallace Cathey's "Hungry Junction"


Factory vs. Academy presents B. Wallace Cathey's Hungry Junction: A History of Seattle Diners Exhibition at the Seattle gallery on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 6pm.

B. Wallace Cathey will be talking with curator Michael Matewauk about her memoir and life working in diners from the Great Depression through the '60's. Photographs and artifacts related to various restaurants throughout Seattle's golden age of dining will be showcased in the gallery.

From Downtown Seattle to Burien and many points between, B. Wallace Cathey has worked in restaurants and diners that are now mostly forgotten in the city's history. With names such as The Huts, El Cenar, and the Ox Bow Inn, Cathey chronicles the various eateries her family operated with the wit and insight of someone who spent decades on the front-line or behind the counter ever-ready with a pot of coffee to top you off.  From the boom of Boeing to post-war changes in dining habits, Cathey evokes a Seattle of blue-collar worker lunches and supper clubber nights on the town that will charm and delight.

2015 Recycled Art Show in April at Blowing Sands Glass

Nelson by Emma MacDuff



Hosted by Blowing Sands Studio in conjunction with Ballard Reuse and Seattle ReCreative, the 2015 Recycled Art Show will run April 11 - May 6th.
There will be an artist's opening reception during ArtWalk.

Artists all started with the same mission:  To bring new life to the discarded.  From that beginning, they have woven, painted, hammered, and sewn to create original works.  The pieces range from the whimsical to the sophisticated, intricate to bold, folk to modern to domestic handicrafts.  It is an entertaining collection all based on the concept that inspiration is where you find it.

Copperpeace guitar straps have been rocked by a number of well-known artists including Katy Perry, Weezer, The Avett Brothers, Sleater-Kinney, Alanis Morissette and many more talented musicians.

Donal Murphy Showing at Couch Seattle in April

"Aside from the shapes and colours there are stories in the subjects of these paintings."

 I am originally from Cork, Ireland but living in Seattle, WA.

In terms of my creative output, I have a number of irons in the fire and more waiting to go in. I am in an explorative state in the Northwest of the country, allowing experiences and daily thinking to permeate my process. I have a tendency to simplify objects and reduce them to their essential components, trying to create forms by assembling simple shapes. Some thoughts on colour pervades, my reluctance to blend colors is based on my feeling that color can be experienced in a stronger, clearer way when it is compartmentalized and the shapes allow me to exhibit colour combinations I feel work well.

Art Chix at BallardWorks in April


The Alchemy of Art and Community

Art Chix is a group of eight women artists who have gathered monthly for the past 15 years with a goal of creating community and feedback for artistic growth.
Members include Sheryl Westergreen, Rosanne Olson, D. Lisa West, Patricia Belyea, Cary Pillo, Anna Rhodes, Nancy Jenkins, Cynthia Hartwig and Dana Nunnelly.

Each month the members decide on a new theme (a word, phrase, poem, etc) which they turn into art over the ensuing month. There are no rules except creative expression. The results, are paintings, poems, photography, songs, short stories, even quilts. The idea is to plumb the depths of the creative self. The work from this group has led to books, exhibits, even new careers, and a sense of empowerment for all involved.  Many of the pieces will be shown at the BallardWorks artist studios in Seattle on Saturday, April 11 from 6-9 p.m.
