vermillionA slew of art shows are opening on Thursday as part of the Blitz Capitol Hill Art Walk. The show we’re most looking forward to is at Vermillion, titled Touch Me – I Am Violent. Why? Because we are encouraged to touch the artwork. OMG we can has art feels! Other highlights on the art walk  include the dual show at Photo Center NW exploring the Black male community and images from men of African diasporal descent; and the photography of by Paul Dahlquist and Almendra Sandoval at Blindfold Gallery. Get the full list of venues and shows on the art walk website, or pick up a printed map at any of the venues.

Frequent CHS photo contributor Aaron Brethorst will have an exhibition on display at 15th Ave E’s Liberty:

It’s called City in Motion, and it’s a series of long exposure landscape photos of Seattle. The exhibit consists of six really large giclée prints on canvas (like, measured in feet large), and four black and white prints. The exhibit is part of the Capitol Hill Art Walk (or Blitz, or whatever), and runs from 5-8pm at Liberty. There’s more information on my website, including smaller versions of the six canvas giclée prints: http://www.aaronbrethorstphotography.com/.

creatureAre you thinking of adopting a dog? May we suggest Valentina Karpov, a martini-drinking master chess playing dog, or Coach Tracker, a surfing tree surgeon canine. Meet Valentina, Coach, and more dogs at the Expawdition Club event at Creature office on Saturday and Sunday. Seattle Salty Dog Rescue will have dogs available for adoption; these special pets come with backstories and artifacts courtesy of Creature. Mud Bay has donated treats, toys, and accessories to accompany the pooch characters to their new homes.

Continuing theater productions this weekend include Ed, Downloaded at Washington Ensemble Theatre and Black Like Us at Annex Theatre. Oscar-nominated shorts continue screening at Harvard Exit theater, too. 

Our Capitol Hill calendar has much more: dance performances, author readings, Valentine events, comedy, a fun run, plus, plus. What are you waiting for? Get outta the house already.
