Businesses featuring music & art tonight:
All City Paint Supply The artist we are featuring for August is Zachary Bohnencamp. We will not be conducting live painting at our store this time around because things got slightly out of hand last time. Usually, our neighbor, Kuma Coffee stays Open and provides a free urn of coffee for our visitors.
Zachary Bohnenkamp – Printmaker/Muralist. Zach was born beside the railroad tracks in Iowa City. He spent most of his childhood in a tunnel beneath the very tracks upon which his first blood spilled. An adventurer by birth rite, he first reached the Gulf of México at age 7 on a raft he fashioned from lilac branches. For the last 12 years Zach has called Seattle home but the rich black soil of his homeland still remains between his toes, where morel mushroom grow to this day.He is currently printing out of Print Zero Studios in Georgetown and making murals with the crew Matamuros in Seattle.
Assistance League of Seattle: Thrift Shop to feature “Shelter Art” Most art ends up homeless through no fault of its own—”moving” and “refurbishing” are the top reasons people give for relinquishing their art. Art adopted from thrift shops typically cost less than art purchased through galleries—once you add in the cost of other “extras” including matting and framing, you’ll probably be surprised what a bargain an adopted art really is! Come in and explore our collection of abandoned art looking for a new and loving home.
Blue Star Cafe and Pub will be featuring two artists this month, Diana Aurigemma and Linda White.
Diana Aurigemma -”My frequent travels, offer me a continuous source of inspiration. The subjects for my ‘plein air’ paintings evolve from a combination of what I see and what I feel. The result flows from my imagination” …on display through the months of August and September. Check out Diana’s work here: http://www.aurigemmaart.com/
Linda White – a collage artist who creates amazingly realistic landscapes with bits of textured paper. Many of Linda’s pieces are inspired by places she’s explored while hiking in and around Washington.

Johnston Architects will be featuring photographs by Melanie Masson in a captivating series called “Passage”.
“Passage” is a survey of leading lines on the American landscape. Every glacier, wheel, and footfall that carved these lines bore a purpose, the sheer repetition branding a deeper promise of worth into the soil. Following these pathways, which by nature branch one to another, similarly connect us to past travelers while guiding us toward the futures we seek – each generation driven by the same prospects as the one before: change, destination, hopes we intend to plant at the end of the lines.
