Opening Reception: December 07, 2012 @ 6:00pm
We made a trip to Seattle Washington in November 15-17 2012 for the 19th Annual Single Malt and Scotch Whisky Extravaganza at the Rainier Club and visits to both the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and the Roq Le Rue Gallery.
At the SAM we saw ELLES: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou (which we also saw when we were in Paris, France). Cool to see it again though, makes the art world smaller with each go-see.
And then we went to the Roq La Rue Gallery which I’d been itching to see for a long time. The current exhibition featured Josh Keys and John Brophy. I met Kirsten Anderson, Gallery Director, and bought a couple of art books (Mark Ryden and Marion Peck).
” The Circus and The Sea “
” New Songs for The Standard Model “

Show runs through December 1st.

Please join us for a very festive and eye catching evening at the gallery. We will be featuring new work by our exceptional collection of artists from both stables. Also expect unusual objets d’art as our artists create something ‘off canvas’ this holiday season. We will be serving up yummy treats and eats, and there will be a beautiful display of artistry on our Artist’s Tree (you will have to see for yourself!).
This unique Christmas Salon runs until Jan 1st. We hope to see you there!

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
They are also putting up a Christmas tree and asked participating artists to create a unique ornament to hang on the tree. I thought long and hard, and decided a Pine Cone Squirrel Ornament with Dalmore Scotch Whisky would be perfect.
After creating my creature with a pine cone, puff balls, pipe cleaner and a glue gun, I decided he needed to be carrying something a bit better than just a nut.
So who else has package of miniature whiskies hanging around?
