Planning your 2nd Thursday

If I've been hearing one complaint about art in Seattle of late, it's that there's too damn much of it to see (a nice problem to have for sure). I think it was Ryan Molenkamp who joked that the only thing we're missing is 4th Thursday. I expect we'll be seeing that real soon.

In the meantime, here are a few spots you might want to hit (and I know I'm probably forgetting tons - feel free to post missing shows in the comments).

Undeclared Goods at SOIL

SOIL is having the opening reception/artist talk for the show Undeclared Goods. This month's artists came from Holland and the volcano threw some major kinks into their plans. It would be really great to pop in and say hi - the work is great. Jana Brevick also has a real nice show in the backspace.

Lawrimore Project is being super over-achievey and will be opening THREE new solo shows. They all look great but I'm most excited to see Matt Browning's new work. If you think you know what to expect, think again. He's branched out into some new directions lately and if you want to know more, pick up the current issue of City Arts. And yet another thank you to Scott Lawrimore for all the energy and support he infuses into Seattle.


If you're on the hill, there's plenty to see during Capitol Hill Blitz.

OHGE, Ltd. is having a closing party for their awesome show, You're So Cool. SAM Gallery is having a reception for their new show, Urban. Penetration at Unicorn is a great way to end the evening. And don't forget about Belltown's Art Walk either! Emily Pothast has also put together a great list of things to see here.

And a big thank you to everyone who's taking time from their busy schedules to get out and see all this great art! Seattle artists really appreciate it.
