Save the date! Thursday, May 6th.

I’ll be opening my studio door next week for First Thursday. That’s May 6th. I’ll be there all day until 8:30 or 9 pm, so feel free to stop by early if you can’t later. If I don’t answer the door, I’m over at Uwajimaya buying supplies.

I’m across the street from the International District bus tunnel entrance. A perfect stop between Pioneer Square and Lawrimore Project.

Here’s a sample of new work:

Michael Schall and Dan Webb.

Michael Schall at Platform. Makes you want to put down your pencil, this guy is that good. Not just little drawings, either. Case in point:

Battle at Sea, graphite on paper, 70 x 94 inches, 2008

The detail is crazy, plus he gets some serious shadow:

Hoover Dam, graphite on paper, 36 x 60 inches, 2010

Then, when you are finished with THAT pile of rigor and dedication, check out Dan Webb’s show at Greg Kucera Gallery. Get another dose, this time the sculptural equivalent.

FORTRESS, 2009 Carved wood (Cedar) 44 X 28 X 29 inches

Check out this beauty:

WOODYLION, 2009 Carved Redwood 32 x 14 x 11 inches

Now it’s time to go back to the studio and get to work. Or, if you’re a collector – get out the checkbook.

Goodbye Telephone Room

It was fun while it lasted.

I took my show Is You Is? down this Sunday. I got to hang out a bit with Heide Fernandez-Llamazares and Ellen Ito, two of the three that make the Telephone Room run (Marty Gengenbach being the third).  We talked about yurts, snowboarding and football. And other things. Before and after pictures below.

Before:

After:

Sorry Telephone Room! I took part of the ceiling when I removed my drawing.

Thanks Telephone Room!

Their next show is For the Birds by Elise Richman January 8 – 31, 2010.

Check it out.
