S3A presents a two night/two neighborhood event called “W3AVE”, bringing together 18 Seattle urban artists for a live collaborative art session the first night, followed by an opening reception and auction the next night.

The live painting event on the first night will take place at the Henry Art Gallery for their “Open Floor” program on Thursday, April 29th from 7-9pm. The reception and auction for the finished collaborative pieces will take place on Friday, April 30th from 6-9pm at City Hostel Seattle in Belltown. Both events are free and open to the public.

The artists have been divided into six teams of three. Each artist will show up to the live event with a 12”x16” canvas that they have already started to work on. During the live event, they will swap their canvas with each of their team members and contribute to their canvases while the audience watches. By the end of the live event, each team will have three completed collaborative pieces to be auctioned off the following evening.

In addition, both events will include: DJ EMC and the Acid Unicorn dropping contemporary beats, cooking up an engaging blend of dance grooves and known and loved favorites - from yesterday, today and tomorrow.

You missed a nose-pickin good time!

Solace & Sensei23 bringing back the childhood days of nose-pickin', cereal eattin', action figure playin', underoo wearin' goodness at Cereal Killers Art Opening last Friday night.

Dude, Where's My Camera? Cereal Killers & Utter Chaos at The GC tomorrow night!

Just the name alone of this exhibit should be enough to get you out tomorrow night to see what Band Vibes is up to!

Presenting the urban contemporary art of Seattle artists Solace, Sensei23, Justin Hillgrove and Phil Petrocelli. Each artists work reminisces about the underoo wearing days of eating Captain Crunch, playing with action figures and watching Saturday morning cartoons. Childhood invokes a litany of whimsical visual pleasures: from ethereal memories of PeeWee Herman depicted in Solace's work, and Justin Hillgrove's cartoonish villians "party crashing" to Petrocelli's haunting photos of days lost, you won’t be disappointed with the work that these artists offer. Plus a couple of "Tasty" treats from special guest artist Wilky.

Amazing joint show with 80's pop culture inspired large format paintings by Scot Hasenkamp, illustrations by Bill Brown, Hello Monster plush dolls by Romiette Lindsley and paintings by Nate Stottrup that exagerate the movement in comic books.

Weirdo & Joey Nix live mural at Nectar Lounge for A Family Affair

Last night was the big "Family Affair" event to kick off the Family Fortune brand newest line of tee's and hoodies. This event included everything from live mural work by Weirdo & Joey Nix (as seen above) to live music, belly dancing and (some hot exchanges of words with NY chicks!)

Here's a bit of the progress:

If you don't know about the ladder, then you missed out, sorry - you had to be there.

I'd like to say, if you missed it - you can catch it again. But that's just not true, next time it'll teach ya to get off the couch on a Wednesday night and shake your booty.
