August 1st Thursday: Pioneer Square

There's nothing like a lovely summer evening strolling around and checking out the treasure of art galleries/venues in Pioneer Square! And I'll give you 3 good reasons, not to miss this month's 1st Thursday.

Reason #1:

"Comb Over" by John Osgood

John Osgood has a line-up of fun cut-out artwork showing at Blank Space Gallery. John had the unique opportunity of being one of the 1st artist to show at Blank Space Gallery the summer of 2006 and "Cut It Out" will also be the last show for the gallery. Although, we are sad that they will be closing their exhibition space, we are happy and excited for them to focus their efforts as a design duo.

Blank Space Gallery is located in the 619 Western Building in Pioneer Square.

Reason #2:

"Mini #30" by Kate Protage
5" x 5"
Oil on Canvas

Fresh off the line, Kate Protage has painted her -- you know what off! She has produced (30) 5" x 5" pieces for this August exhibit aptly called "XS" at La Familia Gallery. She describes her work as "the beginning of a story—a space that is somewhat recognizable and familiar, but leaves room for the story of the viewer’s choosing." Which explains why I always get a eeiry feeling of deja vu when I look at her paintings.

Reason #3:

Our friend Max at Deli is showing a wonderful urban contemporary artist, Joe Vollan this month. Deli is located on 87 Yesler Way and is a men's urban wear boutique that carries independent and contemporary lifestyle brands.

We hope to see you out and about this Thursday. Please stop in and say hello at Blank Space Gallery!
