The brand new Cupcake Royale will be opening up on Capitol Hill on July 22, 2009. Jody Hall wanted to do something really special for her 4th location so she enlisted the help of Roy McMakin and Ian Butcher (both from Domestic Architecture) to design the new space.
Some amazing businesses and craftspeople have been involved with the build out. They include Dovetail, Big Leaf Mfg, Greg Lundgren, Seattle Stained Glass and Sterling Voss.
You are going to be blown away by its beauty! Even in its current unfinished state, it's one of the prettiest spaces in town.
Roy McMakin has curated a nice inaugural art exhibit featuring new (and some not new) work from Claudia Fitch, Ken Kelly, Jeffry Mitchell and myself. I'll be debuting a series of 6 pen and ink still lifes. After the first show, I'll be assuming curatorial duties for the new space (which Jody and I want to be gallery quality) and the other 3 Cupcake Royale locations.
