While this is the dormant season for many gardens, it’s a busy time of planning for the next West Seattle Garden Tour, which is now inviting artists to get ready to enter next year’s poster contest:

The West Seattle Garden Tour provides an opportunity for local artists to showcase their original artwork on marketing materials, including the cover of the WSGT ticket book and promotional poster. The winning artist also receives a $500 cash award. Winning and honorable mention artworks will be featured during the June 2016 West Seattle Art Walk.

Please accept this invitation to submit your original artwork to the annual WSGT Poster Competition. Submission rules and entry form are available on our website.

The West Seattle Garden Tour (WSGT) is one of the premier garden tours in the Northwest, as well as a fundraiser for local non-profits promoting horticulture, education or the arts. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organized by a group of dedicated volunteers. Since its inception in 1995, the WSGT has donated nearly a half million dollars to local beneficiaries.

Entries are due in early February.

Team up with Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras to help local students play on http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/team-up-with-seattle-youth-symphony-orchestras-to-help-local-students-play-on/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/team-up-with-seattle-youth-symphony-orchestras-to-help-local-students-play-on/#comments Tue, 01 Dec 2015 07:49:47 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=330684

Students at seven local public schools get the priceless gift of coaching from professional musicians via the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras‘ Southwest Seattle Strings Project. If needed, the students can borrow instruments for free from Seattle Public Schools. But the ability to assist stops there, which means it stops short of providing badly needed supplies such as replacement strings, chin rests, shoulder rests, rosin, and method books. So a modest donation drive is under way right now – explained in this clip:

SYSO hopes to put together a supply basket worth more than $1,000, with the assistance of the discount at Hammond-Ashley (mentioned in the video), for each of the seven local schools with which it partners – Arbor Heights, Concord, Highland Park, Roxhill, Sanislo, and West Seattle elementaries, and Denny International Middle School. You can help build the baskets by chipping in a bit here.

WSB EXTRA: What lies beneath Endolyne Joe’s? Alpacas, surfboards, and maybe a ghost http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/wsb-extra-what-lies-beneath-endolyne-joes-alpacas-surfboards-and-maybe-a-ghost/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/wsb-extra-what-lies-beneath-endolyne-joes-alpacas-surfboards-and-maybe-a-ghost/#comments Sun, 22 Nov 2015 02:57:25 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=329250

Story and photos by Michelle Riggen-Ransom
Reporting for West Seattle Blog

If you live in West Seattle, you probably already know that you can enjoy a meal out in Chicago, or Brooklyn, or even exotic Rhode Island just by visiting local restaurant Endolyne Joe’s (WSB sponsor). With its rotating, site-specific themes changing every four months, at Joe’s you can be sipping mojitos under a palm tree one season, slurping pasta and drinking vino at a cheerful Italian café the next.

But what you may not know is that beneath the restaurant is a cavernous basement filled from floor to ceiling with funky props, exotic creatures, and hand-painted signs from themes of yore. Looking for a giant wooden shark, or a glittery, oversized Mardi Gras mask? You’ll find it here, tucked away in the depths below the hundred year-old building where Endolyne Joe’s has made its home for well over a decade.

I sat down with Endolyne Joe’s assistant manager Sarah Norberg to find out what it takes to transform a restaurant on a regular basis and to learn more about this mysterious storage space. Norberg is responsible for the elaborate props and decorations at the restaurant, overseeing the creation of everything from life-size papier-mâché pick-up trucks to enormous, furry alpacas (covered in real sheepskin!), and she would be my guide on this underground adventure.

Norberg joined the Endolyne Joe’s staff about two and a half years ago. She came to the position with a background both in restaurant management and in art. It was at Joe’s that these two worlds collided.

“My first piece was this giant jaguar,” laughs Norberg. “I walked in with a nine-foot papier-mâché jaguar. I don’t think anyone was expecting that.” Norberg says that she and general manager Rich Gantner brainstorm ideas for what region to focus on, generally selecting areas in North or South America. Once that’s been decided, it sets off a whirlwind of collaboration, with the chefs creating and tweaking menu ideas, the bartenders pairing appropriate drink recipes and sourcing wine, and Norberg getting busy with building. Other  staff members and local artists provide paintings and prints in keeping with the chosen theme.

“Rich and I look at pictures of the area we’ve chosen and select something that really represents the area as our central piece–a building or a landmark or an animal,” says Norberg.

In recreating their current theme of Providence, Rhode Island’s largely Italian Federal Hill neighborhood, they chose the region’s historic “La Pigna” arch featuring a large pinecone, a symbol of welcome and abundance in Italy.

Lit with twinkling lights and hanging above the host station, Norberg’s recreated arch now welcomes hungry guests into the restaurant. “I think this theme was one of our most difficult from a building perspective,” says Norberg, gazing up at the arch. “But I think it’s also our most beautiful.”

It’s not just the restaurant staff who pitches in to pull off the transformations. For Norberg, building the sets is a family affair, with her father helping with construction, her mother doing papier-mâché, and her sister pitching in with painting. The pieces are created in Norberg’s backyard and transported to the restaurant when complete.

“We really want guests to feel a sense of connection to the place we’re representing,” says Norberg. “It’s so exciting when someone comes in and says ‘Hey, I know that street!’ about a particular sign, or recognizes some detail we’ve spent time researching and creating.”

So what becomes of the props when a new theme goes up? Do they really reside in this mysterious subterranean space? Norberg led me around the building and down a secret stairway to take a look, warning of ghosts along the way. I wondered aloud who the ghost would be. “Why, End-of-the-line Joe himself …” Norberg replied as she disappeared down an unlit hall, referring to the real-life conductor of a now-defunct trolley that the restaurant is named after.

Inside the basement is a colorful riot of oversized creatures, stacked surfboards, and towering signs. After switching on the lights, we carefully pick our way around the pieces, with Norberg stopping to give me some background or to point out a favorite piece, including the aforementioned jaguar now hanging regally from the rafters. Passing an alpaca, she strokes its neck fondly and reminisces about how her cat used to love sleeping on the soft sheepskin while it was being built. Norberg explains that some of the pieces get repurposed, finding new life with a new theme, while some seemed to have settled permanently into the basement like benevolent spirits from meals past.

Next stop on Endolyne Joe’s culinary journey? “Puebla, Mexico!” says Norberg excitedly, surrounded by her former work, already dreaming of missions and mole. End-of-the-line Joe would likely approve.

Dance! West Seattle: Welcoming a new WSB sponsor http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/dance-west-seattle-welcoming-a-new-wsb-sponsor/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/11/dance-west-seattle-welcoming-a-new-wsb-sponsor/#comments Wed, 04 Nov 2015 23:42:46 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=328145 Our newest WSB sponsor has been providing quality dance enrichment for West Seattleites of all ages since 1983!

For more than 30 years, West Seattle has been home to one of the region’s best schools for dance instruction and art enrichment. Dance! West Seattle (formerly Seattle Civic Dance Theatre) has exposed hundreds of children and their families to the joy of dance through classes, pre-professional company experience and community performance. With classical ballet at its core, Dance! West Seattle has expanded its class offerings over the years to include *Tap, *Jazz, *Hip Hop, and *Contemporary.

“We’re one of West Seattle’s best-kept secrets,” says Artistic Director Kim Dinsmoor.

This might be because of our off-the-beaten-path location! Dance! West Seattle is located in the lower level of Fauntleroy Schoolhouse (9131 California Ave SW), with the main entrance facing SW Director. Walk by any weekday evening or Saturday morning to hear music drifting out of the tall studio windows. Then, stop in and say hello! We are happy to offer a FREE CLASS to any student (ages 3-Adult) new to our studio.

Unlike other schools, Dance! West Seattle doesn’t focus on competition. Professional instructors lead students in a supportive and creative environment so they develop strong minds, bodies and spirits and a love for artistic expression through movement! We look forward to serving the West Seattle community for another 30 years.

ENROLLING NOW! Find us online @ dancewestseattle.com and facebook.com/dancewestseattle | info@dancewestseattle.com | 206-938-3063

Morgan Community Association report #1: Entrepreneur pursuing mural-saving plan http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/morgan-community-association-report-1-entrepreneur-pursuing-mural-saving-plan/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/morgan-community-association-report-1-entrepreneur-pursuing-mural-saving-plan/#comments Fri, 23 Oct 2015 20:20:20 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=326920 This week’s quarterly Morgan Community Association meeting was so wide-ranging (as usual), we’re breaking it into two reports. This first one is something you’ll be hearing more about soon:

(WSB file photo)
You might recognize that mural from the back of the commercial building on the southwest corner of California and Fauntleroy. Dan Austin, who owns one of the businesses in that building – Peel and Press – told MoCA on Wednesday night that he’s leading a project to save the mural, painted by Bruce Rickett a quarter-century ago, as mentioned in this 1990 Seattle Times story. And “save” is the word, not just “restore” – Austin said it’s falling apart, and one more winter of rain/wind against the west-facing mural – which depicts the mid-1920s Morgan Street Market – might just peel some of it away.

He told MoCA he’s consulted with Peter Malarkey, who – as we showed you last month – recently restored the mural inside the Colman Pool building. Austin said there’s “a game plan” that he’ll be presenting to various civic organizations. He said that if this works, he would hope it would lead to a “blueprint” for action that could be shared with others in West Seattle to maybe get more of the local murals restored, especially the ones in The Junction.

The first sum of money that would be needed, $2,500, would stabilize the mural to get through the winter. From there, Austin said, there’ll be various price points for various stages of saving the mural, with the total restoration cost around $35,000. And yes, he confirmed, he’s talking to other tenants, including the building’s biggest one, Starbucks.

After Austin spoke, MoCA passed a motion in support of the project and lauded him for taking it on.

Coming up in report #2, more from the meeting, which had begun with an SPD update on the local arsons, as the most-recent one had happened in Morgan; we quickly added video of the briefing to what was at the time our most recent followup.

West Seattle art: Jesse Link’s Junction mural, all done http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/west-seattle-art-jesse-links-junction-mural-all-done/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/west-seattle-art-jesse-links-junction-mural-all-done/#comments Tue, 20 Oct 2015 20:14:55 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=326597

While artist Jesse Link worked on that West Seattle Junction mural, we published a few in-progress looks (starting October 8th) … and realized we hadn’t been back in a few days to see if it’s finished. It is! (If you haven’t seen it “in person,” it’s on the south side of the almost-done apartment building at 4535 44th SW. It’s his second West Seattle mural in less than two months, after the bear on the north side of Shack Coffee in Luna Park.)

Thanks to Eddie for another photo of artist Jesse Link‘s ongoing mural-painting on the south-facing wall of Lofts At The Junction (4535 44th SW) – Eddie first told us one week ago about the start of work on the mural, and we followed up with a few notes and the backstory.

West Seattle art: Local teacher makes, shows jeweled birdhouses, each one with ‘a wonderful story’ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/west-seattle-art-local-teacher-makes-shows-jeweled-birdhouses-each-one-with-a-wonderful-story/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/west-seattle-art-local-teacher-makes-shows-jeweled-birdhouses-each-one-with-a-wonderful-story/#comments Sun, 11 Oct 2015 20:41:40 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=325634

Here’s something else you can do this afternoon – or any day between now and month’s end: Check out this unusual local art display: Dano Beal, a West Seattle resident who also happens to be an award-winning schoolteacher, is displaying what he describes as “whimsical birdhouses” at Tully’s Coffee on Alki.

He explains: “This project started over 2 years ago, with an old, funky birdhouse found at a yard sale. I decorated it as a gift for my Mother, covering it in wild and wonderful ornaments, personal trinkets, and broken jewelry… For several years I had been collecting vintage and costume jewelry purchased at local estate sales, church bazaars, and antique stores. Every piece always came with a wonderful story, usually shared by elderly folks or the people who loved them… Each one of the birdhouses in this exhibit is made using a variety of vintage pieces, religious icons, toys, found objects, and ‘grandma jewelry’.” They’re on display all month at Tully’s, which is on the corner of 60th SW and Alki SW.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Free concert and film pay tribute to Richard Hugo http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/sunday-night-free-concert-and-film-pay-tribute-to-richard-hugo/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/sunday-night-free-concert-and-film-pay-tribute-to-richard-hugo/#comments Sat, 10 Oct 2015 18:10:38 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=325540

Sunday nights are usually quiet on the calendar – event highlights often ending around mid-afternoon. Not tomorrow. So here’s a heads-up if you haven’t already seen this on the calendar: The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is presenting a free concert and film, “Some Places Are Forever Afternoon: A Tribute in Music, Words, and Film to White Center’s Richard Hugo,” 6 pm Sunday inside the historic White Center Fieldhouse at Steve Cox Memorial Park (1321 SW 102nd). Admission is free, thanks to funding by 4Culture; the concert features pianist/composer Wayne Horvitz (who’s in the video invitation above), who released a Hugo-tribute CD in July. The event also will screen “Kicking the Loose Gravel Home,” an hour-long 1976 film about Hugo, who was just 58 when he died in 1982.

PROGRESS REPORT: New Junction mural, day 2 http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/progress-report-new-junction-mural-day-2/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/10/progress-report-new-junction-mural-day-2/#comments Sat, 10 Oct 2015 02:37:18 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=325490

Last night, we reported on the first day of work by artist Jesse Link on the mural long planned for the south-facing wall of the Lofts At The Junction apartment building (4535 44th SW). We went by late this afternoon to see how it’s going. The artist was gone for the day, but it’s clear that, as he had told us in a brief shouted exchange yesterday, it’s a heron and a boat – with the words WORK IN PROGRESS painted across the space for now, lest anyone think otherwise.

Thanks to Eddie for the photo and word that painting is under way on The Junction’s highest-profile mural in a long time. A mural has always been in the plan for the south-facing wall of The Lofts At The Junction (4535 44th SW), but the design wasn’t done until long after the project went through Design Review and started construction. After Eddie shared the tip this afternoon, we went over and hollered up at the artist to ask what’s in store – not knowing at the time that it’s Jesse Link, last featured here when he painted a mural on The Shack coffee house in Luna Park a month and a half ago. This afternoon, via that ground-to-bucket exchange, he told us the mural will feature a heron and a tugboat.
