Admiral Theater Seeking Artists

The evening consists of 3 acoustic musicians in a round, followed by a spoken word artist. At the same time on stage, 4 artists are on 4 canvasses painting. After each "round" they rotate to the next canvass, adding their own special touch to that canvass.

At evening's end, the four canvasses come together to form one painting which then gets auctioned off to an audience member. The painters split that money amongst themselves.

We encourage the artists to get together prior to the show so that they can discuss a "theme" for the painting and even sketch out whatever they want to make the evening go smoothly.

We start at 9:00 PM. There are usually 2, 45-minute sets split apart by a 15-20 minute intermission.


We promote the artists in a variety of ways;

On our website;
www.thehistoricadmiraltheater.com
On our marquee
On our movie-line
Through posters; (see attached)
Through press releases and media advisories
Through blogs and event locations like; culture mob, eventful, Craig's List, Seattle Twist, etc.
Also, prior to the show, the artists are encouraged to bring their work to hang in the lobby not only for sale, but for increased visibility prior to the show.

We do ask our artists to put their involvement out on their social network pages and websites as well as send out an invitation to their own email lists.
We do these shows to benefit the food banks in West Seattle. We have received nothing but great testimonials from both the artists and the community. The audience loves watching a painting come to life right in front of them as well as have the chance to purchase the work.

About the artist in her own words:I love color. Colors can evoke a response like no other sense; cool moonlight on snow, the fading glow of sun on a still lake, the bright flash of a bird’s wing. These are the things that inspire me. Nature is pure art, all we can do is attempt to emulate some of it’s features.

Bakery Nouveau August Artist Lisette Wolter-Mckinley


Artist: Lisette Wolter-Mckinley http://lisettephotography.blogspot.com/

Artist bio: Lisette is from Washington, where she grew up loving the outdoors and creating whenever she had the opportunity. She has always been fascinated with color, texture and composition. She likes to cook, entertain, craft, run, hike and snowshoe. She currently lives in West Seattle with her husband Cameron. Artist statement: My work consists of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, which I constantly explore through different contexts. The subjects I choose are generally simple, ordinary and natural. They reside in a world where people easily pass over them and do not take time to appreciate their inherent value. As an artist I seek to unearth the missed beauty and appeal of such moments. The idea that extraordinary beauty exists all around us is the theme to which I constantly return. To this end, I take photographs, create mixed media art and whatever else catches my interests.

Medium: Photography Size of work: 8" x 10" prints with 15" x 17" frames

Ventana Construction August Artists 3Gs Glass


3 Gs Glass was created by Truus Grandbois, and her daughters Rose and Annette. They started making fused glass during a few sessions at an art studio in Issaquah, and realized they had a passion for glass. A kiln & supplies were purchased, and they started creating beautiful pieces of art. The first piece that were created were the wine coasters, and soon after they were paired them with matching bowls and trays. The trio make a fantastic table accessory, whether you're looking for casual or fancy. With spring came the idea of creating garden art. The glass houses are their best summer sellers.

The first annual "Stop! Collaborate!" show, curated by local artist Todd Karam. This is one-of-a-kind opportunity where 16 artists from Washington and California collaborated with each other. Of course there's a twist. Each participating artist contributed one of their own "completed" pieces. After drawing names from a hat, another artist from the group then took the once completed piece to expand on it. You ask "..but, but will they respect the work of the other artist? Is this normal?" The answer is, "who knows." Slide, roll, dance, jiggy, jump, run, skip, breakdance, moonwalk your way to Twilight in West Seattle. Whatever you do, don't miss this one-of-a-kind show! Erik Chillman and dj Joel Dipietro will be spinning during the opening so bring your dancing shoes and props, if you plan on becoming more than a spectator. Dance music, and old hiphop/funk party stuff!

Dream Dinners August Artist Betty Olson Vacca


Betty Olson Vacca has taken her mastery of other art forms and her attraction toward intricately woven, intense colors to produce brilliant and immersing award winning works of oils, watercolors and pastels.

Coming from the incredibly varied disciplines of weaving and rosemaling (Norwegian floral painting), Olson Vacca’s attraction to color called her to painting. Also influenced by the deep colors and graceful themes of Asian traditions, Olson Vacca used the favored themes of koi, ponds, and flowers to reach for unified works of great playfulness and meditative stillness.
During the Art Walk, Dream Dinners will have samples of Arroz con Pollo, just one of the great dinners on our upcoming September menu.

Sleepers in Seattle August Artist Erica Curnutte

Erica actually comes from a performing arts background and holds an MFA in Acting Performance from the University of Idaho, and has worked professionally all over the country before landing in Seattle. During her tenure here, she has worked for such companies as Book-It Repertory Theatre, Thistle Theatre and Animus Theatre Project. Photography and visual arts came about rather accidentally. It began with taking snapshots of the kids at the school where she works, and then, rather magically, a wonderfully amazing camera fell in her lap and away she went! She is still working to find her aesthetic, but currently finds herself drawn to shooting people, especially women, and capturing the beauty that lies behind the eyes and putting it on paper. www.erica-the-accidental-photographer.blogspot.com

India and the Four AbodesWanderings on the Char Dham pilgrimage

Black and White photographs by Kim Eugene Hood
India

The Char Dham (The Four Abodes) is the most important Hindu pilgrimage in the Indian Himalayas. Located in the Garhwal section of the state of Ultarakhund, the circuit consists of the four sites-Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedranath and Badrinath. For centuries, saints and pilgrims in their search for the divine have walked these vales.In the fall of 2008 I traveled to India and was fortunate to be able to journey to this special region. I saw India as a very unique, welcoming and familiar experience.

Artist Statement: There are moments when life gently pushes against our chests. When the rush, stress and blur stop for a moment.Our senses come together and we pause, realizing our impermanence.For some of us, this sensation becomes an obsession.

Coffee to a Tea with Sugar August Artist Kerry

Kerry is a latecomer to the art world. At the age of 49 he picked up a brush for the first time. He quickly decided his main tool would be the painting knife and he hasn’t stopped since. He received an award in his first juried competition and recently received 1st Place in the Normandy Park Arts Festival for “Spring “09” which is currently on display at Coffee To A Tea With Sugar in West Seattle.

The majority of Kerry’s work is done in the style he calls “Dollopism”. Using a painting knife he carefully places dollops of oil paint, one at a time onto canvas or board. This technique allows him to create highly textured, colorful works of art.

Kerry has more than a dozen of works on display at Coffee To A Tea With Sugar during the month of August. He will be donating 30% of any sales from that display to the Prostate Cancer Foundation in memory of his Father who died from this disease.
