Don't miss the apocalyptic Dead Baby Bike party this Friday, August 1 in Georgetown. Live music, BMX daredevils, beer gardens, and bike jousting right outside Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. The party begins at the conclusion of the reckless Dead Baby Bike Downhill Race about 7:00 PM and continues into the wee hours.
Arrive early to the Dead Baby Bike Party on Friday for a front row seat to the big Boeing Air Show. Watch vintage Spitfires, Thunderbolts, Mustangs, and Tomahawks, along with breathtaking Boeing F-18 Blue Angels and more fly right over the store.
Join us on Wednesday, August 6 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at the reception for emerging Canadian cartoonist Georgia Webber with her compelling comix serial Dumb. This event will also serve to celebrate the City Arts Award bestowed upon Seattle cartoonist Max Clotfelter for his piece in last April's Intruder art exhibition at Fantagraphics Bookstore.
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
Beginning in 2008, the Georgetown Merchants Association commissioned graphic artist Tim Silbaugh to design posters for the Georgetown Art Attack. Working with Fantagraphics curator and GMA president Larry Reid, Silbaugh's monthly motifs convey something about distinctive character and colorful culture of the historic Georgetown industrial arts corridor.
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery will host an exhibition of the posters next door at All City Coffee opening Saturday, July 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The digital composite prints on archival stock are available in a signed, limited edition. Prints can be purchased at Fantagraphics Bookstore for $25 unframed ($40 framed.) The exhibition continues through September 9, 2014.
Every three months, Seattle's tony cultural journal City Arts awards cash prizes for the best artworks exhibited in local galleries. A panel of three guest jurors nominates finalists each quarter. Winners will be chosen by popular vote this Thursday, July 11 at the Summer Art Walk Awards party. Max Clotfelter's story from the Intruder 10 exhibition in April at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is up for an award. Show up at Sole Repair by 9:00 PM, have a drink, carefully consider all the nominated work, then vote for Max!
