This weekend, June 7th & 8th, Canon is bringing their Canon in Action Tour to Seattle! The tour will be taught by Canon Explorers of Light Jack Reznicki and Jim Divitale, along with Amina Moreau of Stillmotion.
 
Jack is best known for his commercial work with companies like Hyatt and Time Magazine, as well as teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. 
 
Jim’s digital photography is featured in magazines like Rangefinder and Professional Photographer and lectures at WPPI, Imaging USA, and Photoshop World.
 
Amina is the cofounder of Emmy Award-winning Stillmotion, whose client list includes Apple and CBS.
 
There is going to be a Saturday seminar and a few Sunday workshops on June 7th and 8th.
 
The Saturday seminar’s goal is to teach imaging essentials and help you understand and expand your creative options. Thoroughly understanding photography principles like ISO and aperture is essential to putting your photography ideas to practice. The Saturday seminar will cover lens choice, camera settings and features, light exposure, portraits, landscapes, HD video, and a whole lot more. We’ll learn quality vs. quantity of light, incorporating video into your image making process. Jack, Jim, and Amina are going to let you discover the possibilities in your camera so that you can discover the possibilities in your photography.
 
The Sunday workshop is an opportunity to practice your new skills, work with live models, and try out professional Canon equipment. We’re going to have interactive discussions and hands-on exercises so attendees will receive feedback for every milestone hit. The workshop is designed to give attendees the tools to create visually stunning and engaging videos and photography.

The photography portion of the workshop is going to let you practice the concepts of flash photography, like functions of Speedlites and ETTL. Since light can be unpredictable, Jim and Dave are going to work with the class on mastering light using flash.

Camera movement, audio capture, and shot sequencing are the main points the video portion of the workshop will cover. Filmmakers use this knowledge every day as the foundation to any well-made video.
 
It’s going to be a weekend packed with learning! Head over to CanonInAction.com and use the discount code CIAMZED10 for $10 off Saturday tickets!

Seattle artist and muralist, Henry, has teamed up with 1201 Apparel to release a collection of exclusive graphic tees featuring his work, which benefit the locally founded non-profit organization One Day’s Wages. You may recognize Henry’s work on the sides of many buildings and various structures around the Seattle, but this is his first time having his work feature in the apparel space. By collaborating with 1201 Apparel, all Henry’s tees and prints sold at www.1201apparel.com will contribute $5.00 directly to One Day’s Wages to aid their efforts in alleviating extreme global poverty.

1201 was first born out of a “desire to facilitate generous giving by combining local art, culture, and style.” The brand seeks to produce apparel featuring the designs and work of local artists, but also strives to benefit the same community that shapes them. For their first line, 1201 and Henry have joined together to produce great classic tees which showcase the fun, emotion-evoking characters of their partner artist’s work.

The brand prides themselves on being very “artist-centered” and makes a great attempt to make the work of the artist the centerpiece of their online showcase. At www.1201apparel.com, all visitors are able to read up on the featured artist and non-profit partner, as well as browse through the many Henry works that can be seen on-site. Currently, the apparel can only be purchased on the brand’s site alongside many exclusive replica print options.

1201 Apparel’s main objective is to “spread great local art and style while befitting worthy causes.” Make sure to be part of the movement and shop the full selection of Henry featured product.

Save Wallcotts, Your Local Art Store!

by Joe McDonald on January 24, 2014

Wallcotts-Home-3

One of my favorite movies, albeit one of those cheesy teen-angst films, was Empire Records. Released in 1995, Empire Records is about a group of coming-of-age, eccentric record store employees who devise a plan to save their beloved independent record store. What does all this have to do with art you ask?

Nestled in the heart of Shorline, WA is a new little locally owned and operated community gift & art store called Wallcotts Décor & More. Louise, the owner of Wallcotts, opened the gift store in September, 2013 with six art enthusiasts, passionate about collaborating with local art talent and connecting artists with the local community. In addition to selling the work of local artists, Wallcotts encourages learning through art workshops and art "parties".

But much like Empire Records, this little independent art shop needs your help. We here at SeattleArtists.com are completely dedicated to supporting the local neighborhood art scene in every shape and form, so we’re happy to pass on and share this information. Wallcotts has started a fundraising campaign to raise money to support their operations. "Wallcotts Builds A Mosaic" is both an online crowdsourcing campaign on Indiegogo as well as a "Meet the Artist" fundraiser event to be held on Sunday February 16th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

They are looking for both supporters to contribute to their Indiegogo fundraising campaign, as well as artists to be a part of an auction at the event. "We created this campaign and event to reach out to the art supporters and enthusiast to contribute to a dream that can enrich a community."  The event will have several artist stationed with their work on display throughout our store, available to speak about their work as well as sell to interested buyers. This event will be open to the public. We will also be conducting a silent auction which will of course include local art pieces as well as donations by local companies in the area. The donations collected from the auction will go towards keeping our dream alive and our doors open.

You can support Wallcotts’ Indiegogo campaign by visiting: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wallcotts-builds-a-mosaic

The "Meet the Artist" Fundraiser Event will be Sunday Feb. 16th 530pm-730pm. To participate or attend the February event, please contact Wallcotts directly at:
