On Saturday night in Ballard we will host not only some of the best local artists, but also some of the most exotic snacks from Asia. The brands we carry have never been introduced to the US market and your taste buds may help to bring one small company across the ocean and onto store shelves. Come join us with an open mind and adventurous taste buds.

This month Venue is expanding the collection of Metamorphic Gear, the brainchild of Lindsay Lawrence, a world traveler, sailor and lover of the outdoors. Inspired by sailing, climbing and travel, Lindsay wanted to design a range of stylish but reliable Eco-friendly products for the adventure enthusiast to use in their urban lifestyle. Having been involved with sailing both professionally and recreationally, Lindsay witnessed the durability of sail material before it was sent to landfill so decided to give it a new lease on life as the major ingredient in his company's messenger bags and totes.
Lindsay reflects, "Adventures are sort of like fingerprints. Each unique to its owner. What starts as thoughts of 'what if' and 'I wonder if I could' quickly turn into plans set in motion."
Metamorphic believes that the gear you use - the paths you take - all pay tribute to those that have come before you and sets the state for those to follow. Upcycling to Metamorphic means an entirely different thing. The tarpaulin, the ropes, the craft - every piece has had a life rich with experience. You are just setting out on your journey, but for these products, it's just a new chapter in theirs.
This artwalk at Venue will mark the next chapter for Metamorphic, launching a new brand design that has "morphed" from their original logo. The adventure will never end and Metamorphic hopes you will join us to celebrate.
