Colorful Georgetown Art Attack Falls on Saturday, November 14
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 10 Nov 2009 10:02 AM

Georgetown Art Attack Flyer October 2009

The Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack returns on November 14 with a diverse array of art exhibitions and cultural activities. Join us in this historic industrial arts district between 6:00 and 9:00 PM for another entertaining evening of creative fun.

Highlights of the November 14 Art Attack include: The grand opening of the Georgetown Atelier hosted by founder Tenaya Sims; new work by Kyle Abernethy with shrines and collages by folk artist Luann Baroh at KrabJab Studio; "Junkture," original assemblages by Wendy James at Calamity Jane's; The Brite Collective presents "Eat My Story" at All City Coffee; "I Paint What I Want," new work by Rebekah Slavin at The Stables with music by DJ Blake Whitaker; scary works by M. S. Corley at Full Throttle Bottles; "Deer in the Headlights," paintings by Catherine Cross Uehara with recent work by Georgetown designer Kimberlee Iblings at Georgetown Tile Works/Frida; "Pim & Francie," exhibition by visionary cartoonist and illustrator Al Columbia at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery; along with the usual disorderly drinking, dining and raucous socializing that gives Georgetown its unique outlaw character.

The November 14 Georgetown Art Attack coincides with "Art on Airport" studio tours. Our artist neighbors to the immediate north at the Sunny Arms Artists Cooperative and the 4810 Building will open their studios to the public from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

The Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack is a monthly promotion of the Georgetown Merchants' Association. For additional information and a participants map visit: www.georgetownartattack.com.

This Friday not in Brooklyn
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under eventsAl Columbia 9 Nov 2009 10:43 AM
Unfortunately, the Al Columbia event at Desert Island this Friday has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. That said, pick up PIM & FRANCIE this week at Desert Island or your local comic book store / bookstore of choice! It's a killer.

See a slideshow of the entire exhibit (and more photos) here (or just browse here). Mike Allred was there but I missed him; hopefully more photos will turn up and we'll share those when we get them. Much fun was had by all; thanks to everybody who came out, and to Al for making the trip (and for kicking off volume 3 of my Yoda sketchbook). The show's up through December 9, so even if you missed the opening, come on down and check it out. Good pieces remain at very reasonable prices!

Reminder: Al Columbia in Seattle this Saturday!

Al Columbia flyer

Come down to Georgetown this Saturday, November 7 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and welcome visionary cartoonist and visual artist Al Columbia back to Seattle. He’ll be in town to celebrate the debut of his first book, PIM & FRANCIE, with a reception, book signing and exhibition of original works .

Al Columbia is widely regarded among his peers as one of the most accomplished and influential artists working in comics today. PIM & FRANCIE represents a breathtaking vision of contemporary American art. Collecting over a decade’s worth of artifacts, excavations, comic strips, storybook covers, and much more, this book tells the story of title characters Pim and Francie, a pair of childlike imps whose irresponsible antics get them into horrific, fantastic trouble... sort of. You just gotta see it for yourself.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at the corner of Airport Way S. in the heart of Seattle’s historic Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110. Hope to see you all Saturday.
