Blogging about chairs at Etsy Lounge

Andria over at Etsy Lounge blogs about artists on Etsy. She was kind enough to include my chair napkin holders is her post today. I like Andria's style of writing and she and I agree on the power of the CHAIR, as a symbol many relate and reacte to. An everyday object that says so much. Please check out her article. It's a good read.

Kobo at Higo to display Barbara Dunshee sculptures

"Hero" by Barbara Dunshee
Immature ceramic, milk paint, wood
18" tall x 7" wide x 7" deep

My sculpture is now on display at the fantastic Kobo at Higo, in a window that faces Jackson Street in the International District of Seattle. Walk the International District ArtWalk, Saturday August 15th, 5-8pm (live music 6:30-7:30pm) and see for yourself!
Anybody who knows either of the Kobo locations knows they show an array of amazing works, ceramics and all things desirable, including modern hip pop and traditional treasures. They are worth many visits.

Sarah Takahashi in Portland

This image taken from Gallery Paradiso site

"Red Dress Study 3" by Sarah Takahashi
10" x 13" acrylic on paper

Sarah Takahashi is one of my favorite painters. I have the "Red Dress Study 3" portrait painting of hers and I fall in love with it each time I stop to look at it. Every stroke is inspired. She's going to have a show at Gallery Paradiso in Portland, Oregon during August, curated by Cathy Joy Young. Highly recommended!
