ART THEFT: Yesterday 12/22
What type of person STEALS art?
Think your holidays suck? Imagine the poor soul who had to resort to stealing 4 pieces of Art from Twilight...Imagine not being able to buy your loved one a gift. So we're hosting a gift drop off for foster kids at Twilight...Don’t have a toy to drop off? We'll donate 10% of proceeds from sales today and tomorrow to Treehouse for kids.

Multi-media encaustic by Cyn Moore. Stolen Monday, December 22, 2008.

Since 1988, Treehouse has filled the gaps for kids in foster care, providing services that no other agency addresses: money for extra-curricular activities and summer camp, professional educational support services, resources to fully participate in the everyday activities of growing up, clothing and supplies to help them fit in at school.

This little trio met in art school at the UW CMA. There they spent their days and nights eating hot dogs and ramen, talking, rubbing each-others backs, stroking each-others egos, drinking whiskey, doing hand stands, braiding each-others hair, banging on things, and making sweet ass art. Come see them re-united in an experiment that involves, black lights, white suits, 3 jukeboxes, several instruments, dozens of speakers, elysian brew, tape, butcher paper and alien inspiration.

Cash is a young urban artist currently living in Bonney Lake, WA. He has been painting since he was a junior in high school. During his senior year, he studied Mexican folk art, as well as color theory, and basic design with a private tutor in Tacoma. Cash has taken what he has learned from his tutor and branched out into graffiti and street art.
The current collection of paintings shows Cash’s interest in anything vintage. These paintings represent the process of change that takes place, bridging the gap between old and new.

Realist painter Michelle Anderst's works on canvas focusing on solitary figures, anatomy and industrial imagery such as telephone poles, glass, and run down spaces. The work is filled with an intensity of color and subject that creates an instant feeling of intimacy with the viewer. Her imagery is directly influenced from growing up as an only child where she spent most of her time drawing her surroundings and poring over her fathers anatomy books.
The attachment to the house she grew up in has begun an exploration of the concept of a residence becoming a part of a persons psyche. The imagery of peeling wallpaper, old anatomy illustrations and empty structures allows a comparison between the psychological structure of a person and the physical structure of a building.

After graduating from Southern Oregon School of Fine Art in 2004, Michelle Anderst moved to Seattle, WA to pursue her career in Fine art. Her work is said to be very 'Seattle' because of her depiction of raindrops on windows and industrial scenes, which look as if they were painted on a cloudy day (because they probably were).

Our beloved summer intern Connor Dodd will be leaving us at the end of the month to return to Savannah College of Art and Design. We will need to take on two, if not 3 or 8, interns to fill his big old shoes ;).

~Manning our Pike Place Gallery 2-3 days per week from 11 AM-5 PM.

~We would also be willing to give web management, marketing, funding and outreach experience to interested candidates.

An ideal Twilight intern has; a true passion for the funky, urban & eclectic art scene here in Seattle, is self-motivated, articulate, charismatic and most importantly fun. If you’re interested in becoming an intern, please send a cover letter and a one-page resume to with “intern” in the header.

Summer Fest & Art Dive!

THANKS TO EVERYONE who came out & supported Art Dive @ West Seattle Summer Fest last weekend! The Art Dive tent was chalked full of awesome local fine art for sale, and was received extremely well by locals and Junction businesses. We kicked off the weekend festivities with the July Art Walk on Thursday night ~ our featured artists Soule, Ninjagrl, Soopajdelux & OneSevenNine rocked it & put together a really great display of work. Come check out their paintings in the upstairs gallery through the month! ALSO, Soopajdelux (the 1 & only Jenna Colby) live-painted on a 4'x5' canvas ~ she's got a day or two left, then it will be ready to sell! 50% of the profit will go to Northwest Animal Rights Network... buy a radical original painting AND help the fuzzies! The painting is sitting on an easel in the gallery this very second, so come by & sneak a peek of her work-in-progress.

Hugs & kisses to Kim McCarthy (Soule) & Michelle Smith-Lewis for being our trusty Art Dive managers for the weekend! You rock our socks!

We'll be continuing the Art Dive theme ~ possibly later this year during the holidays, and again for Summer Fest 2009... so if you're interested in getting the info, make sure you're on our Twilight Newsletter list (you can add yourself on our "Contact" page ).

If you sadly missed out on the Summer Fest fun ~ ART GALORE, grub, live music, Lion Dances, etc. ~ dry your eyes. We put the P in party, so stay tuned for our next event!

See you soon!
