Film about local art collector Long Gone John “Gone Again” will preview at Olympia Film Festival Nov. 9th

Long Gone John. Gone Again.

Long Gone John. Juxtapoz. Gone Again 2

The world premiere of Juxtapoz Presents: Gone Again will take place at the 31st Olympia Film Festival on November 9, 2014 at the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia, Washington, followed by a revival screening of The Treasures of Long Gone John. The new short film will also premiere simultaneously on Juxtapoz.com, followed by a Q&A with director Gregg Gibbs and producer Maura McCoy will follow the short film

Juxtapoz Presents: Gone Again is a visual tour of the elaborately decorated surroundings of the legendary art and music collector Long Gone John. Filmed at his estate in the upper woods of Olympia, WA, this short film is a fantastical journey through the maze of John’s aesthetic mind and personal obsessions. John’s spare, singular narration gives voice to an interior monologue set against the backdrop of an optical nirvana. The Treasures of Long Gone John celebrates its 10 year anniversary.

Fremont Art Council’s Luminata Lantern Parade 2014

Fremont Luminata, Greenlake, seattle

From the summer rambles we’re moving into the Autumn, and to mark the change of season the Fremont Arts Council presents the sweet, superbly beautiful Luminata. It’s a night time parade of lanterns and illuminated costumes, trip creatures, marching bands and a great family friendly welcome to Autumn.

Bring your lanterns, lighty toys, illuminated costumes, EL wire creations, light up hats, anything you’ve got to light up the route! They’ve go three marching bands this year, so get ready to be dancing!

Since it’s on Sunday this year, they’re going to start earlier with a picnic and lantern making right at Green Lake Park. They’ll have a booth selling lanterns to raise money for the FAC and then the Parade itself gets together at 7 pm.

Then, if you attend, you will dance in a gorgeous feast for the eyes and ears all the way to the Secret Banquet, where the host the Prince of Summer will welcome King Winter in his usual way – look out for the sparks! – and there will be cider and cookies at hand.

John Hunter and Amy D’Acquisto show work at the Greenwood Phinney Art Walk Friday, Sept 12th

Work by John Hunter

It’s that time again for the Phinney Greenwood Art Walk, Friday, Sept. 12th from 6-9pm at the Seattle School of Rock located at 106 N. 85th, behind Bartells.

John Hunter has painted in oils since 1990, and has a reputation for intensely bright, rich colors and odd perspectives and organic shapes.
Influences range from impressionism, expressionism and cubism to illustrative style and heavy surrealism. The Machine series is an opinion and surreal fantasy about the current state of technology. Using useless gadgetry and senseless circuitry to portray the world is the direction this series aims for.

Amy D’Acquisto is a jewelry-maker, painter, seamstress, photographer, and fiber artist, Amy D’Acquisto develops her life-long love with the physical world in multiple mediums.
A Northwest Native, Amy’s current obsessions are with acrylic paint, miniature fiber arts, semi-precious stone beadwork, and encaustic bees wax. Having degrees in Landscape Design and Ornamental Horticulture as well as art, she loves to pull from nature, using highly organic and textural items mixed with classic craftwork and post-industrial imagery.

Ries Niemi and Sheila Klein take on Seattle

Ries Niemi and Sheila Klein Punch Gallery

It’s a big month for the Bow-Edison artists Sheila Klein and Ries Niemi, as they’re having two shows in two different venues in Seattle this month.

Sheila Klein and Ries Niemi are married, and each have their own careers making art. They share inspirations, ideas, mediums, techniques, children, and dinner. Back to back, they launch themselves into different directions. The universe is infinite, their relationship is at the center point, and art shoots off in every direction. Inevitably, there are similarities, and big differences, in their work.

Ries Neimi and Sheila Klein

In their second collaborative exhibition at PUNCH, they have physically constructed the words they are speaking to each other, and to the world. Much of the work was made or conceived of while they spend part of each year in Buenos Aires.

Klein has selected some recent works in textiles that form vignettes comprised of crocheted architecture and dark doilies. She has recently installed four bronze sculptures on Bell St. in Seattle. Currently working on civic projects in Baltimore,Charlotte North Carolina, Tukwila and Qatar, her big dream now is a global project to make a contemporary Tabernacle.

Niemi will show clusters of embroidery, metal, paint, and text that are solidifying into books. Beyond the exhibition, he is currently working on a sculpture for Oak Harbor High School, and a steel ping pong table.

The couple will be showing at Punch Gallery with an opening on Thursday, April 3 from 5pm to 8pm. The artists will also be present noon to 5pm Saturday, April 5th with other trade goods and travel tales.

Sheila Klein

And in another creative endeavor, there will be a dedication of new public artwork by Sheila Klein at the new Bell St. Park in the Belltown neighborhood. The Seattle Parks and Recreation opening celebration will be 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 12.

Klein’s new artwork, Souvenir, consists of four bronze sculptures that are featured on each of the blocks that Bell St Park occupies (1st Ave – 5th Ave). In the 1980s, Klein and her husband lived and rented their artist studio in the Belltown neighborhood. Belltown was then inhabited by many artists, writers, dreamers, fashion designers and other creative types eating toast on the sidewalk, sharing with other inhabitants and reinforcing the idea that they were a community. The four sculptures that make up Souvenir (Toast, That was something we used to do, Sunch, and To Be Determined) speak to Klein’s Belltown, serving as a physical love letter to the neighborhood and encouraging those who live in and visit Belltown to find their own path.

Celebrate the dedication of new public artwork by Sheila Klein at the new Bell St. Park in the Belltown neighborhood. The Seattle Parks and Recreation opening celebration will be 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 12 at Bell St. Park, Bell St. between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, 98118

5. Another free event at EMP for high school and college kids, “City of Music” career day on April 10, but must pre-register.
