First Thursday, Pioneer Square, July 2008

Alright, this is a bit late, but a late post is better than a non-post, correct? 🙂
Here are some of our favorites from the July 2008 First Thursday Art Walk! Enjoy! 🙂


Bryan Mandronico‘s kooky, sci-fi inspired paintings aren’t just expertly colored; his use of clean lines, abstract shapes, and negative space make well-balanced, powerful pieces.


Bryan Mandronico shows with a little gold leaf and acrylic paint that sea creatures, popes, and aliens can hang out together without a hitch.


Erin Kendig, also known as Little Red Girl, didn’t have many pieces for sale on this day. Nonetheless, her space, which was shared with previously covered Ryan Molenkamp, was one of the hits of the 619 Building.


Two tree lovers embrace in Erin Kendig‘s beautifully inked and intricately plotted drawings. (Note the little red girl in the lower left, watching the lovers.)


Stacey Rozich‘s Birdhaus Complete is a colorful display of different birds. Watercolors on paper.


Stacey Rozich‘s Problems at Sea offers a new take on seafaring. Watercolors on paper.
