Believe it or not, Summer is almost at an end, though we hope the sunshine decides to stay a while! But, it ain’t over till it’s over, as they say, and there’s still lots of fun to be had, especially at the 4th annual Belltown Crush Block Party!

 

Belltown’s favorite summertime bash is going on this year at Bell Street Park and promises to be a blast!

 

Enjoy tastes of fabulous locally crafted wines and beers and scrumptious bites from Pintxo, Mama’s Cantina, Road Dawg, and Belltown Brewing.

 

Sip and savor your way through the festival while enjoying live tunes and don’t miss out on the grape stomping competition, to really get you into the spirit of the event and the summer. It’s a local favorite!

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 26th from 2-5PM. Advanced tickets are $25 with proceeds going to benefit Plymouth Housing Group.

 

This marvelous event is co-sponsored by Seattle Uncorked, Project Belltown, and the Belltown Business Association.

Be sure to join in on the fun in the sun, celebrate our vibrant community and support a great cause.  It’s the perfect way to spend your Saturday and send Summertime out in style!

As all locals know, Seattle is home to a bevy of deliciousness in the worlds of both food and drink, and the list is growing daily. We are also blessed to enjoy stunning views from basically every angle and a vibrant and eclectic culture, buzzing with life and activity. At no time does this city become more alive and beautiful than during the summer.

Sipping locally made beer, spirits, and wines so good they will make you forget the name Napa Valley, all while enjoying the warm sun and refreshing ocean breeze are essentially par for the course around here in the summertime-and that’s just for starters.  The idea of encapsulating all of the magical aspects of Seattle Summer in a single evening seems overwhelming, if not impossible. That is until you experience Pike Place Market’s Sunset Supper.

Yet another incredible event hosted by the Pike Place Market Foundation, Sunset Supper brings together countless local artisans and vendors of finely crafted foods and beverages for a fun and flavor filled evening in the heart of the beautiful, world-famous Pike Place Market. Sweet, savory, brewed, distilled or fermented, if it’s local and delicious, chances are, you’ll find it at Sunset Supper.

For Sunset Supper, the Market transforms into the perfect venue for a party of 1,400 guests featuring live entertainment and over 90 of the Pacific Northwest’s best wineries, breweries and restaurants. Cap of this night of enchantment with dancing under the stars, for something straight off the Silver Screen.

Your ticket to this memorable night includes unlimited food and drink while supplies last, and unlimited good times too!

At Sunset Supper, you can feel good about the great time you’re having too, as proceeds go to benefit the Pike Place Market Foundation in their fight to end hunger, care for the sick, educate kids, and find homes for those without.

In the midst of the digital age, many are astounded that film still even exists. Everyone has digital film and video capabilities, and film Is very expensive, so, why bother right?

While that may have been what you thought once upon a time, your mind will be forever changed once you see the brilliant art made on and with film by artist Jennifer West at her Seattle Art Museum installation “Film Is Dead”.

In this revolutionarily inventive show, West uses 70mm, 35mm and 16mm analog film strips to create beautiful and visually compelling works of art. She treats the film with common household items including food coloring, nail polish, coffee, vinegar, bleach and more to create patterns and unplanned but stunning effects by eroding the films emulsion, staining it and letting the film take one whatever characters it might.

West’s SAM exhibit features film strips and remnants that have been treated and manipulated by the artist in this way, hung from the ceiling, and spanning almost the entire length of the gallery.

In addition to the physical installation at SAM, West has taken many of these works and digitized them to create a film that explores the differences and relationship between the analog and digital qualities of the film medium, creating another layer to this thought provoking artistic experiment.

Jennifer West is a Los Angeles based artist with some history in the Seattle. West received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Evergreen State College in Olympia before returning to her home state of California to earn her Masters in Fine Arts from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.

West’s works have been displayed in various solo and group exhibitions across the country and the world including Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Lisa Cooley Gallery, New York, NY, Yuz Museum, Shanghai, China, Contemporary Art Museum, Houston, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Portland, OR and many more.

Her love affair with film dates back more than ten years and she boasts a very interesting and varied portfolio of works including photographic and video works using different and rare types of film and film techniques, light play, performance and her unique film quilts and magic lantern works. West’s style and aesthetic are likely different from any you’ve seen before, exploring and challenging the differences between modern digital photographic art and classic analog film techniques. Her style simultaneously evokes nostalgic feelings and encapsulates a modern and almost futuristic aesthetic, and over all seems to challenge films obsoleteness and the digital waves supremacy.

If you share a love of visual arts, interesting techniques, the fusion of arts and science or simply subscribe to the thought that everything old is new again, “Film Is Dead” is a show worth seeing, if for no other reason than to see something beautiful before it’s gone.
