Well, “tonight” if you’re reading this on Thursday, June 13, 2019. If you’re reading this in the future (your “now”) then it already happened and you’re out of luck but probably a happier person because maybe you’re living far enough in the future that the Orange Asshole isn’t president anymore!
God, I hope so…
But, I digress from the important thing which is plugging the Capitol Hill Queer Art Walk which is our fantastic annual event where LGBTQ artists take over the monthly Capitol Hill Art Walk held on the 2nd Thursday of the month. It’s a fun opportunity to bop around Capitol Hill and see friends and make Pride plans and check out some gorgeous art of all kinds including paintings and photography and fashion.
I’ve listed a few of the shows down below, from the SGS Calendar but you can see a list of all the venues over at the Capitol Hill Art Walk website (which even has a map!)
Some of the highlights we’re pointing out include Chris Schanz’s terrific tribute to the Stonewall Riots which is featured at three venues (we did a piece on it; check it out HERE) as well as Nark Magazine’s show at Vermillion Art Gallery & Bar which features work from Nark (aka Kevin Kauer) and Roman Robinson.
There’s also the outdoor AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway AMPlify Memories featuring pieces from artists including Timothy White Eagle, Gabriel Stromberg, and Pete Rush. It’s located at the north end of Cal Anderson Park by Denny Way.
There’s even some live theater on the Walk, over at Seattle University’s Lee Center for the Arts with a production of The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me, a solo theater piece written by out gay actor/writer Dan Butler (“Frasier”).
Through the LooQing Glass is one of THREE art shows at The Factory, 1216 10th Avenue and it looks GORGEOUS…here’s what they have to say about it:
…an overabundance of queer artists’ perspectives on queer bodies. A gallery filled floor-to-ceiling with portraitures of the self or others, each piece alone, but together a community. Featuring stained-glass odalisques, steel and rubber genitalia, elegant watercolor nudes, illustrated transmasculine erotica, and mustachioed Madonnas.
The had me at “steel and rubber genitalia”.
A partnership between PrideFest and the Capitol Hill Art Walk, June’s show features queer artists at various venues around Capitol Hill (usually numbering 15-20 altogether). An easy, gentle June stroll through some of the best art the queer community has to offer. https://www.facebook.com/events/532255640619560/
