On the List | 12th Ave Arts, Donum sale at The Project Room, comics at the library, BAIT Seattle opening, Lobby’s last night

Capitol Hill’s big upcoming event is Thursday afternoon as the theater-powered mixed-use development 12th Ave Arts celebrates its grand opening.

Also this weekend, six local artists will come together in support of Capitol Hill’s The Project Room to host a two day sale event. Donum: a Sale of Contemporary Art and Fashion will take place on November 21 and 22nd from 1 to 7 PM. The artists will display and sell their works — 25% of their proceeds will in fact go to support The Project Room.

Born three years ago, E Pine’s The Project Room provides grant and giving-powered art programs to the public in an effort to maintain a free flow of art and creativity in the city. The organization has been holding workshops and various art events and presentations since its opening. “We are trying to raise money for The Project Room, support these artists and connect to new audiences,” Britt Rynearson, planner for the show and a Project Room board member, told CHS.

Donum is an annual sale which brings local artists together in an effort to promote art and raise money for a local charity. Last year the show raised money for Coyote Central which is an organization that provides art programs in the Central District.

“Each person involved is very established and they work full-time as a designer and they are all local,” Rynearson said. The featured artists for this event are Dawn Smithson, Mia Fioravanti, Tia Kramer, Lynda Sherman and Elena Korakianitou as well as Rynearson. The event will kickstart on November 20 with a V.I.P. party. The party will feature all six of the local artists, major donors and special client of the artists.

There will be variety of items like scarves and clothings, handbags, jewellery, handmade cards and a lot more. Items are priced from $20 to $1000. Rynearson herself will be displaying permanently pleated scarves and shawls.

Audiences will also be treated to a live performance by opera singer Janna Wachter at 6 PM on both days.

More information about this event can be found at projectroomseattle.org.

Exhibition: Max Planck Images of Science @ Goethe Pop Up Seattle
Feb 4 @ 12:00 PM – Mar 6 @ 6:00 PM

Stop by Goethe Pop Up Seattle to see Max Planck Images of Science, striking images captured from scientific research at some of the Max Planck Society’s institutions. Free & open to the public.

Science often pushes back the boundaries of the known world to explore new topics and make the invisible visible. In the process of this work, a purely scientific documentation of research objects is created. And sometimes these images feature surprising aesthetic forms and structures. They are abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye.

Each year, scientists from more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society enter images showcasing their work from the most various research fields. The most spectacular images form the basis of a travelling exhibit, which has been shown with great success in a variety of locations around the world, such as the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the ars electronica in Linz/Austria, the Frost Museum of Science in Miami, the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg, and the German Science Centre in Cairo.

In Seattle Images of Science is a collaboration between the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and the Goethe Pop Up Seattle.

Goethe Pop Up Seattle: February Book Klub @ The Cloud Room Bar
Feb 19 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Each month, we invite readers to come together and discuss works from contemporary German-speaking authors within a wide range of genres and formats and share their experiences. In February, we begin the book club with a graphic novel:
First Man: Reimagining Matthew Henson (Simon Schwartz, Graphic Universe TM, 2015)

The group meets at 7pm at the Cloud Room Bar (21+), the Goethe Pop Up’s upstairs neighbor in the Chophouse Row (4th floor).

The Book Club is free and open to everyone interested, but participants must purchase the individual texts themselves and are expected to have read the title to be discussed prior to the meeting.

Feel free to read each selection in its English translation or original German; the discussion will be held in English. No registration required. Pick up a copy from our neighborhood bookstore Elliott Bay Book Company and receive 20% off the cover price when you mention the Goethe Pop Up Book Club. Copies can also be obtained online via most major retailers in hard copy or digital format.
