Art Attack with Staci Graveley!

Join us for a one night only, Twilight curated solo show at Stables on February 12th! Staci Graveley is putting on a solo show of paintings.

The 12th also happens to be Seattle's 17th annual celebration of Neighbor Appreciation Day and, in the neighborly spirit, Georgetown Brewery is hooking us up with some donated brew. Stop by between 6 and 9 PM for some snacks, drinks, and artwork during this month's Georgetown Art Attack! RSVP on facebook.

From the artist:

"As Gustav Klimt once said "Whoever wants to know something about me, must observe my paintings carefully and try to see in them what I am". I feel the same way. I have been told that my pieces are really moody or that it is hard to believe that one person did all of them. Most of what I do, I do because that is how I'm feeling at the time. Creating art is many things to me but mainly it is the best way I know how to express myself. I grew up in rural Montana and moved to the Seattle area in early 2002. Even with them being almost opposites, I feel that both have influenced my work. I work mainly with cattle markers, oil pastels and acrylics."
