Seattle's most festive monthly cultural encounter continues on April 11 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack features unexpected visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic neighborhood. The public is invited to explore this charming, creative cultural enclave, which has been repeatedly selected by area publications as the city's most vibrant community.
Among the highlights of the April 11 Art Attack: Full Throttle Bottles hosts an exhibition of "Satan's Birdcages" by Richard Lemmert; Simultaneous painting exhibitions by Cheri O'Brien at Georgetown Tile Works and the adjacent, recently-relocated Dog Dream boutique; Photographer Bill Hughlett at the Equinox studios; Handcrafted glass bead jewelry by Elaine Alhadeff at the Brewery studio complex; An exhibition of original comics art by heralded cartoonists Jaime Hernandez and Stan Sakai at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery; fine dining, exotic shopping, and endless entertainment at Georgetown's wonderful cafes, shops and nightclubs.
Also on April 11, the Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack welcomes the annual Honk Fest West featuring a lively array of unorthodox marching bands from 5 states and Canada. Over 20 bands will perform at Calamity Jane's, Smarty Pants, The Stables, Squid & Ink, in the streets and elsewhere. Don't miss this delightfully raucous event.
