Art Fair weekend was an eyeball-fatiguing experience for all. Placiness will remain on view for more leisurely and sustained viewing through August 31st.
Hours for the rest of the month are: Friday, August 12 from 1-6 PM; then the remaining Fridays and Saturdays in August from 1-6 PM and by appointment. “Appointment” may sound scary, but actually you just email Jane and she will let you know when we’ll be around. ’57 Biscayne has 13 working studios as well as a gallery, so the building is open during regular business hours and there is usually someone here well beyond that.

It is a jam-packed weekend what with all the Art Fair hooplah, but we’re having another party nonetheless, celebrating the artists who have made this show so fabulous.
5-8 PM at ’57 Biscayne, 110 Cherry, upstairs
Refreshments, hobnobbing, and choral runoff from the Seattle Art Fair performance that will be going on downstairs. The whole Good Arts Building will be awash in art.
By its nature, the metropolis provides what otherwise could be given only by traveling; namely, the strange.
All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.
