The Built for Man Open Space art gallery and showroom that we talked about a few weeks ago is officially on the calender. The Push/Pull exhibit opens on Thursday February 17 and you’re invited. The new space is located at 509 13th Ave, Seattle, 98122.
You’re also invited to Vermillion on Tuesday February 15 at 7 for a conversation about style. The get-together—please don’t call it a panel, or expect it to be one—was curated by John Boylan and is part of a series of talks that include artists, professionals, and other familiar faces. But more importantly, the conversations include you. Boylan is intent on making these things interactive in the good, old-fashioned sense of the word.
Here’s what Boylan has to say about the topic, ‘This time we’ll be talking about style, how we create and re-create ourselves as individuals, as presences in the crowd. And how we make our mark on the world around us, whether through art or in the simple everyday.’
Among the guests invited to start but not monopolize the February 15 discussion is yours truly. Also in the mix are two folks I’ve included in Style Counsel: Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes and Robin Held. Joining us are the incomparable Adria Garcia from Indian Summer (who was actually featured on Style Counsel so long ago that her page isn’t even digitally archived) and the artist Kelly Lyles.
Admission is free. Please come if you’ve got something to say.
