The May Annual Art Walk was our grandest affair yet! Featuring the endearing artwork of Calamity Jon Morris the music of Squirrel Butter and Titianium Sporkestra – YES – a marching band which paraded our hallways each of the hundreds of visitors seemed to have a smile on their face. One bewildered first time visitor told us I feel like I’ve discovered a secret magical land” and another compared the crowds on Greenwood Ave during the Art Walk to navigating Bourbon Street. The Greenwood-Phinney art scene is definitely in full force.
Thanks to all of our artists – Dalton Webb Justin Ison Tom Dougherty to our house DJs Bobby Trendy for the beats and all of our old and new friends. We’ll see you next month – June 11 6-10p for “Free Life Center” a special travelling gallery show out of Portland making a Seattle stop for one night only.”
We enjoyed a great 50s flashback photo shoot here today thanks to the creativity of Nicole Laye and Heather Lynn. Nicole has created a line of amazing one of a kind airbrush painted kitchen mixers reminiscent of finely detailed automotive art. Working with photographer Heather they perfectly utilized our retro-modern studio kitchen to create a surreally stunnning look – we all felt like we were walking around in Leave it to Beaver” all day. Check out Nicole’s mixer artwork at

Our newest theme room – The Library”- has opened. Designed as a modern take on Grandpa’s study it serves as a cool retro-modern space in the heart of our upstairs. We carefully selected a variety of rad lounge furniture pieces that look great in The Library but are also versatile for creating a custom lounge anywhere in the studio for photo shoots or events. The crowning piece is a light-up globe – a replica of one from our studio owner’s Great-Grandma’s house. Be sure to “check out” (ha witty) The Library on your next visit to ULS.
