Prairie Underground  presents [REM]EMBER by Mia Imani Harrison . Over fifty years ago Martin had a dream, and it’s failed to fully realize. Thus, we are inviting people to go back to sleep to find it. Recently, massive demonstrations have been held in which Black folx across the globe have shown their solidarity for the unjust murders of Black people (women, men, children, and transgender) by police officers. We have seen Black bodies put forth tremendous effort to make the point that #blacklivesmatter, while serving as spectacles to the public and mass media. [REM]EMBER is a multi-media project including staged “sleep-in” with footage of the initial performance/protest, which will take place in Seattle on August 4th.

Georgetown Music Store presents Acoustic Armageddon #48Join us for an all ages music performance with Zach ZamoraSara O’DeaMaddy Smith Jesse Gallaway. Music starts at 6PM sharp. It’s free. All ages are welcome. Bar w/ ID.

These 50+ year-olds started grunge, drank artisan coffee before it went mainstream, and are still rocking it. This is no “senior center craft store”, this is a professional gallery and studio space where your “elders” prove just how vibrant, creative, and relevant they still are.

Mainframe   “Star Gazing: A Paul Hernandez Photography Retrospective”

Local photographer Paul Hernandez has cracked open the vault of negatives, circa 1989-1993, to exhibit a never published catalogue of rock photos from the Grunge era. With subjects such as Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Green Apple Quickstep and Alice in Chains, this hand-developed photography collection features both live images from Seattle iconic locales like Central Tavern and The Vogue, as well as band shots in studio and around urban Seattle. Paul’s friendships with many of these musicians allowed him to see them with their guards down, and the result is fun, poignant, beautiful and at times chilling. Artist Talk at 7:30 pm.

Illumination Studio# 305   Art into Life . Come in and experience color like you’ve never seen before. We specialize in abstract, organic, color field and spacial paintings. Steve Rostad with organic, Dari Stolzoff with abstract and Ferrell with color field and spacial. Ramona Bell is our contributing artist with more abstract paintings.

The Georgetown Liquor Co  & the Seattle Arts Coalition  present: The Art of Eli Wolff .

Eli Wolff is a video game designer spends his free-time creating artwork from a wide variety of influences including the creative tradition of his grandmother who worked as a neon sign designer in Seattle in the 1950’s most famously the Pink Elephant car wash sign. He does new paintings at least a couple times a month, so check back regularly to see new work.

Elysian Brewing is excited to present Ellen Picken Untitled Mural – Elysian Brewing 2018. This artwork embraces abstraction through an insistent rhythm of lines that evoke the worn grooves of a vinyl record being obsessively played until the scratches make it uniquely yours. The oscillation markings are like sound-waves. They look the way punk rock feels; disruptive, fast, loud… never losing momentum. Ellen Picken is a muralist and creative co-director, producer and designer at Factory.Town in Spokane, WA.

Flying Squirrel Pizza presents recent work by Megan Kukall.

The Conservatory   is open during Art Attack with libations, coffee and rotating artists monthly.

studio e   Becoming American features works that rehearse, analyze, and deconstruct the ideologies of American heritage rather than reiterate confrontational stances, the exhibition delves into themes of race, gender, place, and cultural identity while maintaining a connection to the formal approaches embedded within the larger practice of participating artists. With our empathic cultural ethics now under greater threat than ever before, the show provides an opportunity to step into direct relations with the imaginary of what it means to strive toward becoming American.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery  presents Michael Dormer and the Legend of Hot Curl with surf sounds by Pleasure Island. The late Michael Dormer is synonymous with the California surf counterculture in the 1960s and 1970s. The post-World War II influence of Beatnik poetry, jazz, and art interpretation around the California Coast created a revolution in the Orange County surf world, and no one defined the visual style of this movement more than Dormer.

Rainier Glass Studio Become part of the glass art experience, browse the gallery of NW artists unique blown glass art and stay for live demonstrations at 7pm during Art Attack.

Bridge Productions is delighted to present In Time, a solo show of work by Portland artist Patrick Kelly. Patrick Kelly’s ongoing series of graphite drawings recall objects found in the natural world such as geological rock formations, hematite, or obsidian. Their layering is a laborious process of hand-drawn overlapping lines describing various jagged gestures to build up the form. The resulting drawings play with and thwart the light in a pearlescent black mass; creating the illusion of a sculptural object in relief on flat, black paper.

Oxbow  Artist Dan Webb presents “The Visitor” at Oxbow in Georgetown-an evolving installation about inclusion, conversation, and relationships.
