First Thursday

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:

Ideat Magazine

Ideat, a culture magazine based in France, sent a journalist and photographer to report on Seattle. Somehow they ended up ay my studio after First Thursday. Actually, Deborah Paine was their tour guide that evening and we work together at the City of Seattle

From L to R: Tod Gangler, Deborah Paine, Jean Michel de Alberti, Jean-Claude Figenwald

Tod Gangler, Seattle based photographer, was our translator. Jean Michel is writing the piece, and Jean-Claude was the photographer. They were in the midst of an intense week of experiencing Seattle. They changed hotels every day, ate out every meal, had tours of cultural destinations, and had about an hour of free time a day. Sounds grueling.

We had planned to have a few beers in the studio and go out for Chinese, but ended up just hanging out. I think they were relieved not to have to go out for dinner. It was a fun evening. I look forward to seeing the spread. Until then, “Vive la France!”
