Field Trip: The Frye Art Museum Seattle
Last month I took a trip to the Frye Art Museum in Seattle on the suggestion of a friend who had fallen in love with their salon style gallery. The recommendation was apt- I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, with 3 Bougereaus in one room, how could you not? I appreciated the mix of late 18th and early 19th century portraiture, and especially some of the wilder lesser known pieces.
You’ve Got Mail: The Postcard Project
For the holidays this year my dear brother gave me the gift of an art supply spree- because he’s the best. I meant to space out my purchases and really give them thought and planning… and then I walked into You’ve Been Framed on Foster/Powell and I just couldn’t help myself. Or rather, I helped myself, to a lot of incredibly fun things I wouldn’t have normally splashed out for, one of which was a package of blank postcards. I’ve been slowly working my way through them and enjoying the small scale and finality of them as a medium. Clearly I’ve been heavily influenced by my dark wave playlist recently- why name your own pieces when you can let Morrissey and Depeche Mode do it for you?
