Artists and News
Chris Ryniak has some monsters to add to the "Gathering" show. He has this cool book that, I believe, is self published. It's only $15 and available on his site.
This next art show is actually also going to be a fundraiser for NW Harvest, which is a local food bank organization that provides food to over 300 independent food banks and meal programs throughout Washington State.
I'm not ashamed to admit that many lean years as a starving artist acquainted me with the Fremont and U-District food banks. One time they had crates and abundant crates of strawberries that were a day away from dissolving into puddles. I used them in a series of still life photos and then we all ate as many as we could. They were going to have to be thrown away anyway. So food banks help creative minds in more ways than one.
