Hotwire Coffee July Artist Karol Sample


In her artwork, Karol Sample enjoys telling stories. These stories are often born out of an unconscious process, and weave themselves through the images, media, textures, and colors of the paintings. Having a life of their own, the paintings invite the viewer to form his or her own relationship with the stories behind them. Sometimes a painting is personalized by the viewer, creating an atmosphere of intimate sharing...the artwork then becomes something both specific and universal. Karol receives inspiration from nature, artwork, music, people-watching, movies, and books. She hopes everyone can share in the story!website link: www.karolfern.net

Sleepers in Seattle July Artists Luci Varon, Vivian Jech, Raphael Alcabes and Meryl Alcabes


Four photographers participated in this project, which entailed shooting photos exclusively of West Seattle on just two dates: May 16 and June 14, 2009: Luci Varon, Vivian Jech, Raphael Alcabes and Meryl Alcabes. Luci Varon loves to capture nature's beauty, the essence of a town or city, and those special moments in people's lives. She has been snapping memories for over 30 years. Vivian Jech is 33 and lives in West Seattle. Her favorite color is blue, and her favorite authors include Elizabeth Peters and Stephenie Meyer. She has brown hair and is almost five feet tall.

Raphael Alcabes’s interest in photography began when he attended a photography summer camp sponsored by the Pacific Science Center in conjunction with Art Wolfe. He enjoys photographing his friends and their activities. Meryl Alcabes learned the basics of photography from a college roommate. Since then, she has documented her family’s life abroad, their retail business and the growth of her three boys. When a shot of her oldest son as a toddler won first prize in a department store contest, she became devoted to photography. Eventually, Meryl’s children rebelled at being photographed, so she turned to capturing portraits of friends and documenting their celebrations. Meryl eventually hopes to hear the ultimate praise a photographer can receive, “wow--you must have a really good camera.”

Ventana Construction July Artist William Hass


http://www.nwfineart.com/. “Art is a necessity. I work mainly in abstract expressionism because I enjoy how each painting becomes its own entity; taking on its own personality and breathing a unique vibrancy in to the room in which it hangs. It appeals to me that the interpretations of my work are limitless to the eye and the imagination of the beholder. Each piece speaks for itself and hopefully one will have something compelling to say to you.” – Will Hass
