May Day Silkscreen Party With Sabrina Small at Grey This Thursday, 7pm to Midnight!

Sabrina Small will be at Grey silkscreening your garments this Thursday night, April 30th, from 7pm to midnight. It's a great time to meet the artist, re-visit the Duality exhibition, have a cocktail and see what other people are getting hooked up with silkscreens. At past silkscreen parties we've seen hats, t-shirts, oxfords, hoodies, jackets, jeans, skirts, dresses, pillow cases, place mats, even a hard cover book. Silkscreens are only $5 each (cash only please) and all proceeds go directly to the artist. The three images above are examples of the 3 silkscreen images that Sabrina will have available (colors may vary). Make your old garment a new favorite!

Capitol Hill Arts Walk

The Capitol Hill Arts Walk has recently began the process of revamping itself... and if you hear the name Blitz being thrown around out there, it is the new term coined for the arts walk.

There was recently a neighborhood meeting to go over details about all the new changes to the walk, and how it will be supported in the future. The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce has taken on the neighborhood arts walk, and a variety of artists and business owners are getting more involved.

The walk now has in place: a professional PR person (a CHCC Board Director), a branding campaign and logo, a financial officer, sponsorship from the Stranger, partial sponsorship from Girlie Press for our printed materials, an after-party for the Art-On-A-Stick parade, a website in process, a Facebook page and Twitter account, and a pack of volunteers.

THEY NEED A FEW MORE VOLUNTEERS Please send an email to if you'd like to be involved.

If you would like to learn more about the recent changes, and want to attend an Blitz meeting, here are some upcoming events that are open to public participation:

Blitz volunteer meeting Tuesday, May 5, 7pm at Vermillion

A&E meeting Tuesday, May 19, 7pm at Vermillion

Thursday, June 11, 5 - 8pm: BLITZ launch!

Every Thursday, join Grey and local DJ collective SunTzu Sound (who are recognized for their other resident night, Trust at Sole Repair, and City Soul Radio Show) for a mix of sounds that combine jazz + soul + past + present + future and equal a cosmic blend of urban cultures and organic rhythms.

The following excerpt is from their site, and explains who they are and what they're all about:

"Created in 2002, SunTzu is composed of four fine DJs: AC Lewis, Atlee (a.k.a. IMC Soul), Dr. J (a.k.a. 1Luv) and J-Justice, as well as Jayson Powell live on the congas. Together they have dedicated more than 50 years to music with soul—from brokenbeat to afrobeat, funk to jazz, hiphop to house.

Best known as torchbearers of the rising brokenbeat scene, SunTzu is fueled by a faithful following in the Northwest and beyond. The crew’s tireless efforts have made them an indispensable mainstay in Seattle, where they regularly book and promote top-shelf international talent and serve as the weekly hosts of Friday night’s City Soul on KBCS 91.3 FM. They were also recently nominated among Seattle Weekly’s “Best DJs of 2006” for their infectious club sets."

Music Starts at 9pm

Color Court

Join Grey Gallery & Lounge and Flatchestedmama on the evening of April 29th for Color Court:

Color Court is the precursor to Flatchestedmama's final Monochromatic May (a month-long performance piece completed in 2007, 2008 and now 2009), where the artist adopts an entirely grey wardrobe for the month.

All wardrobe items are subject to review at Color Court, where the public acts as jury, voting grey or nay on wardrobe items. Items found to be in contempt of Color Court will be sent to color corrections, those remaining will culminate a final inventory to be worn in Monochromatic May 2009.

Grey is the color between all and nothing. It can reflect confidence, independence and careerism (all) or looming weather, anger and depression (nothing). The integration of simple, self-created boundaries with daily-life performances like Monochromatic May provides Flatchestedmama with a heightened awareness of her 2004 decision to merge art and life.

Flatchestedmama is an artist who performs endurance and conceptual works. She likes sending and receiving old-school correspondence (snail mail) and she's a founding member of an all-girl, adult double-dutch team.

By Proxy Live Tonight!

The Stranger today:

"Local duo By Proxy make their live debut tonight at Grey Gallery and Lounge at 10:30 pm. Featuring producer Jeremy Moss and singer Alicia Romero, By Proxy combine dreamy, mellifluous vocals à la Bel Canto’s Anneli Drecker with ominous atmospheres and beats & bass pitched compellingly between dubstep and triphop—think Various Production and Portishead, refreshed for 2009 ears.

DJ Biznotic will be spinning before and after By Proxy's set."
