SPACE Presents a Sound Garden Sunday

July 29th, 2015 by hillaryu

On Sunday, August 2, 2015, from 1-4 PM, Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange (SPACE) will welcome the public to enjoy the notable and rarely seen sculptures of the NOAA Art Walk on the Sand Point Peninsula in northeast Seattle. Usually open only on weekdays from 8 AM – 5 PM through the NOAA gatehouse, Sound Garden Sunday allows access through the park for the first time on a weekend since 2001.

Sited on an ecologically restored shoreline, the six artworks feature internationally recognized artists Martin Puryear, Scott Burton, George Trakas, Douglas R. Hollis and Siah Armajani. Famed Seattle grunge band Soundgarden chose its name from Hollis’ iconic sculpture, A Sound Garden. Picnickers are welcome and the day promises to be a quiet and un-crowded alternative to Seafair as well as give Seattle Art Fair goers a chance to see significant works of art in a natural northwest setting.

All visitors to the Art Walk must show picture ID; only U.S. citizens will be admitted.

Also in the park from 1-5 PM, over 20 artists in Building 30 West will open their studios to the public. The Magnuson Park Gallery is showing Walking a Mile: a Race to Humanity featuring the works of Carol Rashawnna Williams and Robert Horton. Williams will be in the gallery throughout the day and guest artists will also have works on view in the hallways of the redeveloped building in the heart of the Sand Point Naval Air Station Historic District.

Silver Kite Saturday Art Workshops

July 11th, 2015 by hillaryu

Community members of all ages will contribute to a chalk mural on Saturday, July 18, as Silver Kite Community Arts kicks of its latest series of inter-generational art experiences. In collaboration with artist, Nancy Silvesan-Valdes, participants will turn the George: Center for Community parking lot (located in Lake City) into a work of art.

Sidewalk Chalk Muraling is the first in a series of monthly Family Art Workshops offered by Silver Kite to encourage creativity, innovation and connection for the whole family as they experience something new together. Each workshop is facilitated by a local professional artist and focuses on offering a new art medium to experience. Families can contribute to murals, bring recycled characters to life, learn new games and dances, and make crafts, time capsules and more!

Workshops will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at George: Center for Community on select Saturdays.

All ages welcome and children six and under must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
