Seattle Art

december art walk & end of the year open house by Unknown

In the blink of an eye, it seems a year has already passed since our move to the new office. And while there have been many perks of the new space (elbow room, two bathrooms, the intern gets her own desk!), one of our favorite parts has been getting to participate in Pioneer Square's First Thursday Art Walk.

We've hosted illustrators, photographers, and painters in the past but for December's Art Walk we're planning something special by featuring artwork created by our very own team! Yes, your very own Atelier Drome team will be showing off our artistic skills and talents during an evening that is sure to be nothing short of festive!

So please stop by our office on Thursday, December 3rd anytime from 5:00-8:00 pm for a night of culture, light refreshments, and lots of fun.

Worried about parking downtown? We'll have free parking vouchers for anyone that parks in participating parking garages!

In the spirit of the holidays, we will also be collecting nonperishable foods to donate to Northwest Harvest. Please consider bringing in any of the following:

  • Beef stew, chili and similar meals with low salt, sugar and saturated fats
  • Canned fruit, especially with low sugar (but not artificial sweeteners)
  • Canned fish or meat
  • Peanut butter (plastic jars are preferred)
  • Canned vegetables (low sodium)
  • Brown rice
  • Whole grain pastas
  • Tomato products and canned sauces
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Infant and baby foods:
    • Baby formula
    • Jars of baby food
    • Powdered or canned milk
    • Infant cereal

Thank you so much in advance for your generosity and we greatly look forward to seeing you!

I was at the Cupcake Royale on Capitol Hill the other day.... and really fell in love with the interior. A quick post on twitter, and soon I knew the designer! Domestic Architecture, an offshoot of Roy McMakin's sculpture and furniture design developed a really fantastic interior space that successfully integrates sculpture (not in the photo, but fantastic bent wire birds decorate one of the main walls), custom furniture, branding, and the overall space.
I've spent the afternoon looking through the rest of Domestic Architecture's site... The use of color is great, as is the treatment of the buildings as sculpture. The graphic nature of most of the designs is a testament to Roy's life as a sculptor and designer.
Most of these properties are private, but if you have the opportunity, definitely check out Cupcake Royale.
