A short film made of our studio building during art walk...
I didn't announce December's First Thursday art walk because I wasn't planning on attending. I was pretty tired and needed a break. The studio would be open, my paintings would be shown and it would be tended to by my studio mates but this would have been the very first art walk since I obtained the studio in August 2007 that I would miss.
At the last minute I changed my mind...and ended up staying later than normal and not locking our space until 10:30 pm. It was a full four hours of again, wonderful conversations and good energy. What I totally forgot about what the film maker who came in and asked for permission to film the work. That is, until I received an email this evening with his completed little film.
Omar Taboada video is a beautiful piece that not only highlights some of the energy in the 619 Western Arts building on First Thursday, but he made it magical.
Check out the lovely 10 minute video. It gives a good sense of our building during the Pioneer Square art walk, which was the first art walk in the country. And, if interested, my viaduct paintings are featured at the 5 minute mark.
