My (ART) Fair Lady...


Works by Dustin Yellin were on display at the Winston Wachter booth.


Seattle is my FAIR lady! 

The city is still buzzing with energy after what has proven to be a smashing success for Seattle's inaugural Art Fair event. City Arts contributor, Amanda Manitach, has written this amazing recap and follow up article on the Seattle Art Fair.  Below is an excerpt but you must read the full article here: City Arts

…..As we emerge from the whirlwind of the weekend, the collective vibe is too amped-up to objectively assess how successful the fair was in financial, critical and cultural terms. At a party on Saturday night, representatives from Artist Trust were glowing. The proceeds from the Seattle Art Fair patron VIP ticket sales—which were entirely donated to the organization—amounted to $85,000. That number was three times what they expected. A representative from the Office of Arts & Culture gushed when describing his tour of the art fair and Out of Sight with Mayor Ed Murray. “The Mayor only meant to walk through quickly, but he was so impressed he stood up three meetings to spend the next couple of hours walking around, looking at art.” …..read full article here!
This piece by Ivan Navarro was one of my Fair favorites.

The works at the alternative art show "Out Of Sight" showed off the creative talents of Seattle artists. This piece is by Jennifer McNeely

In conjunction with the Fair I had four new works on display at the Hall / Spassov Gallery as part of a Pop-Up show just for the Art Fair weekend. 
Looking forward to Seattle Art Fair 2016!

The show looks really fabulous. I love the organic sculpture of Jennifer McNeely especially the way she worked the thread. I also love your paintings very peaceful and elegant.
