Featured Artist at RAW:Seattle – April 2nd!

artist_flyer_heather_carr

As a shy artist, I’ve got to be the worst promoter in the world, but I’m going to give it a go now… (deeeep breath…) OK! So…

I’ve been given a great opportunity to be part of an Artists Showcase that is taking place April 2, at the Fremont Foundry. It’s going to be quite a party, with bands, fashion designers and visual artists showing off their creations. RAW Artists was created several years ago to help emerging artists get exposure and I’m really excited that they sought me out to join their showcase.

If you would like to support my art (whether or not you can attend) you can purchase a ticket on my RAW artist page for $15. The only cost to me for the show is the agreement to sell 20 tickets by March 25th. I have to make up the difference for any I do not sell. I will have several paintings on display as well as some prints available for purchase. 

I may be live painting that night as well… Still trying to figure out the logistics and how to not make a mess… hahaha

Thank you all for all the support you give me, in the form of likes and comments. The encouragement means so much!!!

Hope to see some of you there! Thank you!!!

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!

It’s Back! Alice in Wonderland Piano @ The Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline, WA

Looking mad as a hatter…

Piano Time in Shoreline, WA is back!  While I didn’t have time to commit to painting a new piano this year, I’m proud to say that my Alice in Wonderland piano is out of hiding and has found the perfect home.  For all of August, Wonderland will be on display at the Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline.  I can’t think of a more appropriate home than a library!  Best of all, it’s art you can touch.  Visitors are welcome to come and play the piano. Unlike my cat, this toothy-grinned beast won’t bite…

Here is a link to all my Alice themed work, including progress photos from painting the piano: https://heatherunderground.com/category/alice-in-wonderland/

The Richmond Beach Library is located at 19601 21st Ave N.W., Shoreline, 98177
