Open House June 9th!

May 22, 2012

Hello all,

Our open house is coming! Come on down to see the curious creatures of Cooper Artist Housing in their natural habitat! Check out the facebook page and invite your friends via facebook!

Artists will open their home studios to the public to show the “Curious Creatures” in their natural habitat. Visitors can tour each floor of the building where residents will showcase their art, both in their studios and on two performance stages in the building. Music, performance art, theatre sketches, and poetry readings will continue throughout the day.

On the first floor, arts-based nonprofits will host interactive activities for all ages.

Entrance and all performances and activities are free, and some artists will offer their art for sale.

Come back soon for updates, including the schedule of performances.

Motion in Quadrants for Kate Vrijmoet

I’ve been working on some interactive audio for Kate Vrijmoet, an artist with a gallery in Seattle’s Tashiro Kaplan building. If you’re in the area come and see/hear how the piece turned out.

This is a screenshot of my side of things, the interactive audio. In practice, the top left quadrants will be filled with video from a camera with a wide angle lens hanging above the space. The four larger rectangles in the center will show when computation is being done with input from the video. If that sounds vague, you’ll have to come check it out in person this Thursday!

Friends of the Art Lending Library,
I wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity to support growth of the Art Lending Library’s artists and work.  One of our supporters, Carrie Ferrence, has offered to host a Creative Session to explore the potential of expanding our reach, seeking sustainable financial options, and developing strategic partnerships in the community.  She is doing this as part of her second year MBA program at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
A Creative Session is essentially a guided idea and brainstorming dialogue that brings together a diverse group of participants to explore a fairly open question…in this case: in what ways might the Art Lending Library build community and strengthen support for art?”.  The key difference between this session and a typical brainstorming discussion is that nobody from the steering committee of the Art Lending Library will attend – so there are no limits to exploring ideas and suggestions.
Carrie is looking for several friends of the Art Lending Library to participate in the Creative Session on:
Mon, Nov 16th  6:00-8:30pm   at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (room TBD)

Are you interested in helping to envision the future of our work?
Are you dedicated to promoting art and artists in the greater Seattle community?
If so, please contact Carrie directly to communicate your interest in participating.  It does not require that you have any specific experience – just an in interest in supporting our work.  You can reach her at 206-850-8481 or
The meeting is just around the corner – so please make sure to contact her soon!
Thank you so much everyone for your continuing support.
The Librarians
