House Cooling Party @ Hospital Kitchen

Whitney roasted a very small turkey, there were really delicious raisin crackers, and Arnold Palm made his last appearance at Hospital Kitchen.  No fascists were killed.

Affordable Art Fair Comes to Seattle

The Affordable Art Fair is in town for the next 4 days and there is SOOOOO much great art to see from over 50 galleries, many of which are local.  Last night’s preview party was great fun, but I’ll be heading back to catch all of the art that I didn’t see.

I’ve Been Posting Like A Madman

Fans of this website, most likely a handful of art enthusiasts and my Mom, you might have noticed that there have been less postings lately.  Yes that is true, but it turns out that the postings are now showing up over on Art-Nerd.com/Seattle.  The reason, their layout is way better and the picture uploading thing is far easier.  But also I don’t want to just double post everything anymore.  As of now this site will be a place where I round up my contributions, wherever they may be, as well as add stuff that doesn’t fit the other sites, like food photography (jk) and musings about vintage cameras and shibori (not jk).  But stay tuned, cause there might be something that is exclusive to Dandysme (NSFW), you just might be surprised.

This week I’ve combed Craigslist for art related job postings, invited anyone to join us at Art Klatch (Driftwood Horses of the Apocalypse), wrote about some writing and art events going on around town, and got super excited about the new Jack Straw look book featuring Sierra Stinson and Issey Miyake clothing.

And soon there will be a little something over at Vanguard about glass artist Cappy Thompson.  So stay tuned!!
