Art Studio Open House, Magnuson Park, Sunday 1/19

poster 4 art thingI just moved into an art studio in Magnuson Park that’s been twenty years in the making! It’s such an honor to be a part of this new community. I’m looking forward to building my career in this space.

There will be an open house this Sunday from 2pm – 5pm.  I’m on the ground floor. I believe that at least half of the studio artists will be participating. It’s a great opportunity to see this wonderful space the city has provided for artists, and to see some local work!

Use the gatehouse entrance to Magnuson Park at NE 74th Street.  Turn left on 63rd Ave NE. The studios are in the first building on the right.

Hope to see you there!

A Night On The Town

Heather Carr drawing sketch pastel pen pencilA pencil, pen, chalk and oil pastel sketch.  It’s a bit Blade Runner inspired.  I believe all but one sign is from a street in Kowloon – which I visited long ago…  It’s taken me two weeks to finish this and manage to get it scanned and posted.  I can’t wait until my kids are back in school! 😛

Expect to see more of me in September.  I have several paintings to share!  In the meantime, look for me, HeatherUnderground on Instagram.

Artists of the World, Unite! An Art Propaganda Poster by XE3EP

Heather Carr propaganda poster communist artists XE3EPIn high school and college I studied Russian, and lived in Russia as an exchange student multiple times.  Those experiences have stayed with me and influenced me in many ways. I even sign my paintings with my name in Russian: XE3EP, pronounced “heh – zher” as there is no “th” sound in Russian.  I love communist propaganda posters.  After I finished this pencil sketch, I attempted to color it using my rudimentary digital art skills…. I’m pretty happy with the results.  Instead of “Workers of the World, Unite!” it’s “Artists of the World, Unite” which we all should, I think! 🙂
