Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Red Current (sweet fruit) at Roq La Rue

It's raining, it's pouring, and since there are only 5 more dates to catch this remarkable show curated by the smart and captivating local artist Sharon Arnold, put on your Wellies and get out the door. Make haste as there are 37 incredibly varied and talented artists whose works are displayed salon style in this swooping space.

To see what the opening night party looked like, take a look on Hi-Fructose (plus see photos of the artists standing beside their work). I was otherwise engaged that night with out of town guests, yet I hear it was really and truly an epic event. While the fact that these are all female artists is something that doesn't need mention, I did remark upon it to my own (young) artist daughter Miss M as it seems notable that people would never comment on gender if a show only included works by male artists. As in, "Hey, there's a show called White Matter that's featuring 37 male artists." Hmm, no, you would never hear that. Now that I've commented, I'll tell you that this show is indeed overtly centered on women, and yes, it's absolutely amazing.

My own Miss M is enchanted (as was I).

Seattle is such a great art town. The recent wave of shows and events is pointing in the right direction-- which looks to me to be forward thinking and groundbreaking. It's been a lot of fun, and it feels very welcoming and inclusive. It's also clear that Sharon Arnold has done it again. Be sure and adventure forth to see what she's gathered for show and tell this time!

The Pelican Goddess would like for you to see her face in person.
