Hi SDA Pals – I’m moving to Portland at the end of August (to be closer to family).
On Saturday August 17th from 10-5 pm I’ll be having a studio sale
LOTS of great (and some weird) stuff. Furniture: tables, cabinets, chairs, stools/Supplies: paper, pens, paint, inks, fabric, craft supplies, books, odds and ends.
Pricing will be EXTREMELY reasonable. I have rented a new studio in Portland, but it’s not as large and I don’t want to move lots of stuff.
Feel free to email me with any questions about what’s available.
Hope to see you Saturday the 17th!
Best – Maude
Oh – my studio is at BallardWorks -2852 NW Market – corner of 30th and Market, across the street from the Taco Time – parking in front – last French door on the left as you face the building – Spark Studio
Here’s some traffic information that will make it easier!
SDA Dancing Surfaces
Friday, August 9th reception 7-9PM
Phinney Art Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103
Travelling to the Phinney Center and parking will be a challenge for the reception on Friday. Friday is the Summer Streets event in the Phinney neighborhood. At 6:00, Greenwood/Phinney Street will be closed at 67th street up to 87th street. So, guests will want to arrive at the lower parking lot by approaching the Phinney Neighborhood Center from the east, on 67th street or from the south. There will be plenty of signage and people help directing guests. Also the Farmers Market will be running from 3-7PM in the upper lot, which will impact parking. Here is more information about Summer Streets: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/summer_green.htm.
The SDA Seattle weekday meeting for September 2013 will be held at the home/studio of SDA member Gay Jensen. Gay will share her artwork and give an informal “dress rehearsal” of her talk “Passion for Paint: One Woman’s Love Affair with Painting on Fabric” that she will be presenting formally to a weaving organization and a quilting organization this fall. If you are not familiar with Gay’s work you can look at her website http://www.gayjensen.com .
Date: September 4, 2013
Location: 12545 42nd Ave NE, Seattle, 98125
Important: This location is a little tricky to find so use your GPS or go online to get directions, please don’t contact Gay asking how to get there since giving directions is NOT her strong suit! Also, the entrance to Gay’s house is in the BACK, not on the street side.
Time: Noon to 3 — From noon-12:30 you can tour Gay’s home and studio, Gay’s talk will begin promptly at 12:30 and last approximately one hour, and following that the group can do show and tell, talk about future meetings, etc.
What to bring: Your lunch. Gay will provide beverages for the group. Also bring anything you want for show and tell. Please note that Gay’s home is a “no outdoor shoes indoors” household so bring your slippers if you want, or wear your favorite socks, and be prepared to remove your outdoor shoes when you arrive.
Meeting contact: Sharon Rowley, firstname.lastname@example.org
Also: Save the date Wednesday, October 2, 2013, 12 – 3 pm when we’ll be meeting at Okan Arts to learn about and shop Japanese yukata cottons.
