"Happily..." opening



here are some photos from this past friday's opening of Happily Ever After? 2

after two days of hanging the show, i got to spend friday relaxing and passing out fliers around town for the opening. sohaila, johnny, and i went to honey hole for the most delicious sandwiches ever. i had the pulled bbq pork sandwich with coleslaw, johnny had the beef brisket, and she had a yummy turkey/havarti/amazingness sandwich. the fries were perfectly crispy and the perfect portion.

we dropped by goods, an urban fashion-sneaker-skate shop to visit my friend george otto who i had met during the weiden + kennedy 12 weekend. while we were there, we had a redbull and watched japanese bug fighting. every "round" involves a match between two deadly insects/arachnids and they pretty much fight until one eats the other one. i thought it was quite disturbing - might be more of a 'boy' thing, but here's a link.

{i had wanted to go to the butterfly house at the pacific science center, but we ran out of time. i think that last time i went to something like that was when i was aged in the single digits. i guess i ended up seeing some bugs anyways, though not quite as graceful.}

we headed back to the gallery for some last minute preparations, a celebratory drink (or 1/4 of one), and had our opening!





the weather was lovely, so there was a lot of foot traffic and i talked to so many people that night, my throat was sore after we closed that night.



{look at tons more show photos here}

early in the evening, before it got too crazy, the three of us ventured over to roq la rue and BLVD for their openings. travis louie and femke hiemstra were showing at roq la rue and graffiti artist ghost was at BLVD.



i met travis a few months ago while i was down in LA at audrey kawasaki's solo at copro nason. it was really nice to see him again and as always, his artwork was mind-blowing. i know the description says acrylic, but i can't even see any brushstrokes!





i really appreciate the time and care travis puts into every piece he does. he even writes little stories about each character he creates. this one is about Eunice. an artist AND a storyteller? fabulous!




(look how tiny!)

femke's pieces were so delicate and super detailed. i loved how they were painted on old books, tins, and holy water fonts and were displayed in elaborate gilded frames.


ghost's artwork at BLVD.

i was able to sell a few pieces and several prints during the opening (yay!) and afterwards, we went to The War Room for their 3rd year anniversary. george got us on the guestlist and we shook our booties til the early morn. i'm so glad i was able to spend a few days in seattle, it was good to see old and new friends, have a great art show, and a few mini adventures.

I know Beau and Josh! Met them in Salt Lake City (through @tylerbrown) and almost made logo for Suite 100 Gallery back in the day.

Small world, welcome to WK12 :)
