These go-go goddesses have gained notoriety for “settin’ the fringe a flyin’” at their wacky, wickedly wild high-energy shows. Keeping the lost art of retro dances alive since 1998, these gals are living masters of the most vivacious dances from the vortex of the heyday of 1950’s – 1970’s including the Hully Gully, the Twist, the Frug, the Watusi and oh, so many more great dance steps! In addition to numerous performances in their hometown of San Francisco, the girls’ fancy footwork has taken them to Las Vegas, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Austin, NYC, Seattle, San Diego and beyond! Honest-to-goodness GO GO DANCERS! Right there before your very eyes. You’ll think you’ve died and gone to Go Go Heaven.

Agent Double-O S.O.U.L. (Seattle)
When not undercover in the capacity of an espionage operative actively vanquishing diabolical supervillains, somehow finds time to indulge his taste in spinning exotic contraband disques for dancers in seedy bars the world over. Then it’s back to the never-ending, perilous life of spy versus spy for our intrepid agent. Odds are he won’t live to see tomorrow.

Resist! Artists for Progress Show at The Piranha Shop 1/27/2017

pin The Piranha Shop, 1022 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134

Resist! Art Show at The Piranha Shop — 100% of proceeds from the sale of work will be donated to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.

Art today serves a different purpose than it did before the election. As our Nation’s activists, optimists, truth-tellers, and interpreters, we have a responsibility to keep the things that are important as far away and safe from the new CEO in Chief as possible.

So, we’re coming together and raising funds for institutions that are now in jeopardy. We’re fighting hate with hope, rallying together, and speaking our minds. We’re showing the world that we won’t go silently— that progress, creativity, and judiciousness still matter in this weird, new, reality-television version of America.

Because if history has taught us anything, it’s that hope never loses.

Join us to raise money for the institutions that need us most. We can all do our little bit to keep our beautiful country progressing towards acceptance, tolerance, and hope.

Friday, January 27, starting at 7pm at The Piranha Shop, 1022 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134

Participating artists include:
Jennifer Ament
Charles Peterson
Stacey Rozich
Danielle Skredsvig

Closing Up Shop? The Uncertain Future of Seattle’s Art Galleries

Why is it so hard to keep an art gallery open in Seattle?  Find out at this panel discussion Jan. 24th at Town Hall 

A spate of recent gallery closings with no new galleries moving in have many art-lovers wondering if this reflects profound changes in the business of art. Will the art community flounder if galleries and openings are replaced by alternative spaces, DIY art projects? What role does the internet play? Why is this happening in a community with as much wealth and education as Seattle? Key members of the Seattle art community take up the issue in a lively and provocative panel discussion, moderated by art critic and Gage Academy of Art Artistic Director, Gary Faigin.

Panelists:
Greg Kucera—Owner, Greg Kucera Gallery
Amanda Manitach—Arts Editor, City Arts Magazine
Mary Ann Peters—Artist, winner of Stranger Genius Award
Mariane Ibrahim—Owner, Marian Ibrahim Gallery
Gary Faigin (moderator)—Founder of Gage Academy of Art

Presented by Gage Academy of Art and Town Hall Seattle

Tickets at Town Hall for 7:30pm Tuesday January 24th

Nintendo by Jennifer Zwick
Nintendo by Jennifer Zwick

Ghost Gallery presents a series of watercolors on paper by local Seattle artist Jennifer Zwick called “Nintendo and Fortune Cookies”.

These diminutive sketches with graphite and watercolor document the object of obsession for many a teenage boy, but also apparently for this post-adolescent lady artist.

The show opens today at Saint John’s Bar & Eatery, 719 E Pike St, Seattle, Washington 98122 and will be up through all of November and December.

This is an off-site show produced by Seattle’s own Ghost Gallery, owned by the lovely Laurie Kearney and located at 504 E. Denny Way at Olive Street.
