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.

Fogue Studios & Gallery   A collective of 25 artists over age 50 exhibiting 200 works of art. Located upstairs in the Georgetown Building- 5519 Airport Way S. Hey! 50 is just a number. 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. Also enjoy Luscious Leopard Lips , our D.J. with a Theremin, playing atmospheric music in the background. You’ll find it warm and inviting.

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.

ArtForma will be presenting current work of Nathan Vass. ArtForma is located in the Hammie Salon on the second floor 0f 6007 12th Ave S.

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. Artists: Dan Attoe | Korakrit Arunanondchai, Paul Stephen Benjamin, Gretchen Frances Bennett, Matthew Brannon | Cat Clifford, Jasper Johns | Brian Jungen,  Eyvind Kang | Duane Linklater, Lynne McCabe | Jeffry Mitchell, Lavar Munroe | Helen O’Leary, Jenny Perlin | Adrian Piper, Pope L. | R.H. Quaytman | Ruth Robbins, Aram Saroyan  | Dori Scherer, Barbara Earl Thomas | Rodrigo Valenzuela, Anna Von Mertens August 3-31, 2018, Opening: Friday August 3rd 6-9pm.

Bridge Productions  presents KAT LARSON, THE GHOST FROM VEGA. Opening reception 10 DECEMBER. Interdisciplinary artist and performer Kat Larson creates hauntingly beautiful video paintings addressing themes of identity, race, and femininity. In Larson’s new series of photographs and video, The Ghost from Vega, she tells the story of a being from another planet who crash lands on Earth and, over time, becomes a ghost with no means to return home. Intrigued by our world, the visitor begins to explore it only to find their strength weakened by the deficit of love and compassion, and begins to slowly fade away. Over time, they become a ghost with no means to return home.  This intimate, tender story serves as a parable to the power of connection, perseverance, and strength of the spirit.

Krab Jab Studios  In times of uncertainty, fear and turmoil, there is work to do, that only can be achieved when operating together. “Standing Rock” is not just another “event” that will quickly pass by but rather the embodiment and expression of our zeitgeist: the spirit in time not only in Dakota or the United States, but globally. Polarization and disintegration is happening all around us. The suffering as seen clearly and again with the Sioux and their direct supporters, is an evident result of authoritie’s ignorance, marginalization and discrimination. Our work and social responsibility is to bring together, to connect, to listen, to communicate and to act where we can. We have already all it takes to change, if we just allow it to happen. Any step towards the great, is a solid step!
