Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 22 Apr 2010 10:49 AM

The Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack - May 2010

Rustic Georgetown lights up on May 8 with the monthly Second Saturday Art Attack and annual Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival. The neighborhood will be invaded by hordes of art and film aficionados for a festive evening of avant garde entertainment. The Georgetown Art Attack is intended to increase public awareness of the historic industrial arts corridor and generate sentiment towards preserving this enchanting civic asset. Each month the creative enterprises in Georgetown present diverse visual and performing arts, and many resident artists open their studios to the general public.  

Among the highlights of the May 8 Georgetown Art Attack: “Into the May Woods,” new works by Mark LaFalce, Claire Brown, and Deborah Stachwic with pottery by Pamela Hathaway at Mark LaFalce Painting Works; “Tales Designed to Thrizzle,” a book signing and exhibition of original comics and animation by Michael Kupperman at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery; a “Spring Cleaning Sale” at KrabJabStudio; “Rusty Junk in Waves of Grain,” a photography exhibition of forgotten beauty along Washington State’s back roads by Todd Kalamar at Frida.  

Belle & Wissell, 9lb Hammer, Seattle Drum School, Via Tribunali, and The Stables play host to the 5th annual Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival (GS8). The Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival is a community based event dedicated to the creation and sharing of un-juried, amateur super 8 films, with the goal of promoting individual creativity and community understanding. Over 40 three-minute single reel films, edited in-camera, will be screened throughout the day. GS8 programs will be available at All City Coffee. 

The Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack is a monthly promotion of the Georgetown Merchants’ Association (GMA). For a map and list of participants please visit: www.georgetownartattack.com. For a screening schedule and other information on the Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival, see: www.georgetownsuper8.com.

It was our great pleasure to once again host hometown hero Peter Bagge at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery and to welcome the great James Sturm all the way from Vermont for a joint signing and book release on Saturday evening. Unfortunately some technical difficulties put the kibosh on James's planned multimedia presentation but it was a lively evening regardless, with a great turnout of fans and Seattle cartooning luminaries alike. Above: David Lasky chats with James, Fantagraphics' Janice Headley rocks the register, and Peter takes a breather. Check out some more photos on our Flickr page.
