ULS is giving you the super sweet deal of two shows for the free price of one!  Urban Avant Garde curated by Andrew Miller will feature the sights and sounds of over 50 of Seattle’s finest in visual art and music to interpret their work to the theme of Modern Art.  The upstairs will play host to an open mic style music affair and the visual components will be splayed all over the walls; both up and down.  Sprouting Wings by Vera Pashkevich will feature 80-100 print transfers onto 4×4 wooden blocks.  These ethereal images that will fade into each other are a reflection of Vera’s fascination with magical realism and will be on display in our smaller gallery downstairs.  These shows truly are not to be missed!


If any of you have been to Horseshoe in Ballard than you already know it is filled with to-die-for must-have fashion!  Jill the owner likes to think of her store as an opportunity for a lady to express her rugged individualism while never denying her charming femininity.  We recently had the pleasure of having the lovely ladies of Horseshoe here at the studio for a photo shoot to capture their new Spring Nautical line.  They utilized the brick wall and red barn door in the downstairs studio to stay true to that rugged and feminine combo while using an old rusted anchor and wooden paddles as props to create that nautical feel.  Check out what they captured that day here on their blogspot.  Horseshoe also has a great Lookbook site that you can drool over check it out here.  Everything in the store is also available on the web store and there is always free shipping!


We recently had the pleasure of hosting Samantha Fosse for her photo shoot featuring her unique and beautiful bridal headpieces.  Sam’s background is in apparel design.  She designed for well-known companies such as Nordstrom Tommy Bahama and Eddie Bauer.  Sam’s design approach begins with feathers flowers leaves or wings.  She then marries that foundation with relics of the past like brooches beads Victorian laces and vintage ribbons while deriving inspiration from the Marchesa Casati Mother Nature Nancy Cunard and the embellishment of Alexander McQueen.  She likes to think of it as “upcycling”.  Head to the downtown Seattle CICADA to try on Sam’s headpieces!  Here are some behind the scenes shots of the photo shoot…
