Pioneer Square's First Thursday Art Walk is coming up the First Thursday of May 2010, as it tends to do. I recently stumbled across La Familia Gallery's promotional tool for their Art Walk openings, and it's a great idea! I'm surprised I haven't seen the videos before. Here's the one...

Chances are, you probably won't understand most of the words on Ignant, but it's quite alright. This German blog features consistently outstanding contemporary art, with a focus, it seems, on installation works. Do yourself a favor and check out this blog. Here is just one artist, of many, I've discovered through...

The entire month of May, Kansas-transplant-turned-Seattlite Anna Wetzel has a solo show at Some Space Gallery. Her works generally explore the relationship between human beings and animals, often bringing wild animals up close and personal, where they can no longer be ignored by people.  Ω...

Until May 1st, multi-disciplinary artist Claire Burbridge and paper sculptor Matthew Picton have a really exciting show at Toomey Tourell in San Francisco. Burbridge entombs sculptures in blocks of resin, serving to capture a moment of human life in time. Picton creates his signature paper sculptures of three-dimensional city maps,...

Brooklyn artist Julia Rothman can pump out patterns for a good portion of her artistic career, and that is an amazing thought. With colors that pop, the patterns seem suitable for anything from wallpapers and wrapping papers to desktop backgrounds. And that might sound like a lot, but that list...
