      MONDAY ARTISTS wants you. We are an established group of watercolorists who meet Monday mornings from 9:30 to noon at the Island View Apts across the street from West Seattle H.S. There is a minimal fee of $5 for the use of the room. First-timers are free. We start with a critique and paint the rest of the time. Beginners and experienced artists are welcome. If you are a beginner we can get you started. We usually have an annual show in the Fall. Some of us started knowing absolutely nothing and have ended up showing and selling our work on a regular basis. For more info call 206-932-1973 or e-mail me at rjwight@comcast .net

      Required Documents
      To receive tax help, bring one of these identifying documents:
      - Social Security Card
      - Tax form SSA 1099 (Social Security benefits)
      - Medicare card (if Social Security number is followed by an “A”)

    9. Free clinic: How to bike commute in Seattle @ Cycle University
      6:30 pm – 7:15 pm

      Craig Undem, owner and head coach at Cycle University is giving a free clinic this Wednesday night at Cycle U at 6:30 pm: How to bike commute in Seattle. Free tea and coffee as well, finshing at 7:15 pm, 3418 Harbor Ave SW, free parking as always across the street.

      I love riding my bike in traffic (this is Craig talking), today on my commute through downtown I felt like I was a motocycle in Hong Kong in rush hour traffic, but it was a Sunday, and I was just riding to the West Seattle store from the Sand Point store. I arrived at work feeling 20 times better than when I had started, energized, calm and flush with circulation and awake. I have been a bike commuter since I moved to Colorado to start racing in 1987, and there are few things in life that make more sense than riding your bike to work. Here are the key benefits:

      1. Get in better shape

      2. No waiting in traffic or long lines of cars

      3. No gas and the repair bills are 1/20th of a car

      4. Parking is always (or almost always) right in front of your destination

      5. You feel more connected because you feel, smell and really see the
      area, you are a participant in the dance of travel, not just a passenger
      (today a road worker gave me a head nod and “have a nice ride Bro”, you
      don’t get that in a car). I also stopped and chatted with a friend at the
      West Seattle bridge and felt the wind off the water.

      6. It is often faster or just as fast as driving

      In our commuting class we will go over the key elements of a good commute:

      route
      bike/tires/brakes
      gear
      clothing for riding and working
      dangers and things to avoid
      tricks and ways to get started on any length commute
      This is a lecture/dry land class without riding. We will be doing a ride
      from West Seattle to downtown Seattle on Saturday at noon, more details at
      the clinic.
      With traffic getting worse as the economy gets better, it makes more sense
      now than ever to ride your bike to work and on errands. Email Craig with
      any questions: Craig@cycleu.com

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

    6. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Cathy and Jake Jaramillo @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Authors & Urban Hikers Cathy and Jake Jaramillo present at “Words, Writers
      & West Seattle”

      April 3rd “Book Talk” event sponsored by SW Seattle Historical Society

      Cathy and Jake Jaramillo are retired executives who now enjoy spending more time doing wilderness and urban hikes with each other. Together they have written Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods, the city’s first guidebook to the best neighborhood walks in Seattle that feature public stairways.

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5-7 pm on Friday, April 3rd, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      As one of America’s hilliest cities, Seattle has dozens of little-known stairways offering intimate access to a fascinating variety of neighborhoods and Jaramillo’s Seattle Stairway Walks includes several in West Seattle: the “Fauntleroy and Morgan Junction Walk”, the “North Admiral Stairway Walk”, and the the “Alki From Above Walk”. In addition to presenting their book to the West Seattle audience, Cathy and Jake are offering to conduct a modified version of the Alki walk for the “Words, Writers & West Seattle” audience on Sunday, April 9th, beginning and ending at the Loghouse Museum, 3003 61st Ave SW, the home of the SW Seattle Historical Society.

      Jaramillo’s book gives curious urban hikers a handy guide to exploring the
      city’s neighborhoods from a whole new angle. It’s a “best of” compilation of 25 scenic walking byways all over town, each one including detailed directions, pictures and maps along with descriptions of local scenic and architectural highlights. Stopping points for lunch, coffee or a local craft brew are included too, not to mention key stats like stair counts, time required, and distance.

      Since moving to Seattle in 2000, Jaramillos discovered that Seattle’s many stairways are the perfect way to get wonderful views of the diverse neighborhoods. Jake and Cathy were inspired to write this book because of the memory of many happy hours spent exploring the stairways of L.A. with Cathy’s parents.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next FIRST FRIDAY book-talk is scheduled
      for May 1st and will feature West Seattle author/illustrator and SSC instructor, Jan Koutsky with her book My Grandma, My Pen Pal. Additional
      information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye
      Hendricks, chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at
      206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net .

      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      Drop-off tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis.

      - Photo identification (required)

      Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. It’s an informal setting for folks to discuss and learn from their peers while hanging out in a casual environment. Here you can meet elected officials, candidates and other like-minded folks to share the bond of common ground. Some of us decide to eat dinner, while others just enjoy a glass of wine, beer or a nonalcoholic drink such as soda or tea.

    12. Neighborhood Character Preservation Meeting @ High Point Community Center
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Councilmember Tom Rasmussen is holding a series of public meetings to gather community input about a proposal to establish a Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) program in Seattle. This would be a voluntary program through which residents have a voice in the design of proposed developments.

      April 7, 6:00 pm
      High Point Community Center
      6920 34th Ave SW

      The purpose of a NCD program is to help neighborhoods keep their unique physical attributes through design guidelines and review. Under the proposed program the City’s Department of Neighborhoods would review requests of neighborhoods to become a Neighborhood Conservation District and would manage a Neighborhood Conservation District Board which would review development proposals to ensure that they are consistent with the distinctive physical character of a neighborhood.

      Qualifying neighborhoods would have strong design characteristics that the community would like to see preserved, but may not be eligible or appropriate for historic district status.

      Neighbors are invited to attend to learn more and share their perspective.

      Pajama Game
      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      The Spinster and the Carpenter – Rebecca Rose

      April 9th – May 24th, 2015
      Opens Thursday April 9th, 6 to 9 pm
      With guest cellist Sarah McGrath

      Artist Talk: Saturday April 11th, 2015 6 to 8 pm

      Early on Rebecca Rose saw similarities between Sculpture Foundry and Metalsmithing Jewelry, and in both cases transformed an idea from concept to reality out of carved wax and burnable objects. Rose plaster coats the original, kiln fires it, melts metal, and pours it into the negative space. Discovering that jewelry and sculpture could be the same, interchangeable, and all that was missing was a way to bridge the two until she then came up with the current body of work: wearable art + small sculpture = Sculpturings.

      “My methods involve a process called kitbashing, where I assemble wax and burnable objects reminiscent of childhood toys, game pieces, organic materials, and imported miniatures to convey a narrative or story. Recycled objects and elements find their way into the mix as new life is breathed into discarded items that become precious metals, literally turning trash into treasure.

      The setting: Nature.

      “I strive to create beautiful prints, not just take pictures.

      With every image I try to capture scenes and situations the viewer may not have ever experienced. On the best of days, these images will stir up unexpected realizations and emotions in me and the viewer. The process is a magical journey, from pressing the shutter to viewing the print for the first time.”

      Eric Carson
      Mark Daughhetee
      Jenny Fillius

      M​ARCH 12 – MAY 2, 2015
      ​Reception & Artist Talks: Thursday, ​April 9th, 6-9pm

      With sculpture, drawing and painting, Eric Carson, Mark Daughhetee, and Jenny Fillius each work with found mythology to suggest themes of reclamation and devotion in our contemporary world.

      Eric Carson uses the format of the mandala [the Hindu/Buddhist ritualistic design that organizes a spiritual experience in visual terms] to symbolically connect the world’s religions to each other, and to comment on the intersection of those beliefs with political and cultural issues. The way these line-based drawings are made—as well as their content—suggests a hybrid of references, from Western cartoons to Hieronymus Bosch to Hindu devotional painting. Carson writes, “These pieces present insight traditions around the world as petals of the same flower, not creeds to divide by or kill for.”

      Mark Daughhetee’s Stations series of assemblage sculptures pay homage to old TV shows like Bonanza and The Lawrence Welk Show. Plastic cowboys stand stoically among clumps of hobby shop moss under a peaked roof. The format is reminiscent of compositions from the Renaissance and inspired by roadside memorials, as well as Thai spirit houses. Humor, child-like reverence for TV, and manhood (as defined by old Hollywood) are the main characters. Daughhetee writes, “Like one’s journey through life, each television program, in its turn, occupied center stage for a while and left when the curtain fell for the last time.”

      Describing her process, Jenny Fillius writes “Being observant, anything can trigger an idea—an overheard expression, something on the street, an experience, the metal, a broken tin toy; literally anything.” Fillius finds and repurposes decorative sheet metal in the form of broken toys and used tin food containers to make sculptures suggestive of the retablos of Mexican folk art. Since most of the metal Fillius uses appears to have come from one’s childhood, or one’s parent’s childhood, the narratives that ensue are partly-articulated hints that nostalgia has gone awry in some way that we in 2015 are privy to.

      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

We will also cover problematic wildlife and how to manage them in the garden. A Village Green Perennial Nursery garden tour and a chance to pick up some great wildlife friendly plants to take home for your own garden is included. Informational brochures will be available. Dress for the weather, we will be outside. Street parking, walk down driveway to back of house. Village Green is a residence/business/permaculture farm and garden.

      The Spinster and the Carpenter – Rebecca Rose

      Artist Talk: Saturday April 11th, 2015 6 to 8 pm

      (Exhibit runs April 9th – May 24th, 2015)

      Early on Rebecca Rose saw similarities between Sculpture Foundry and Metalsmithing Jewelry, and in both cases transformed an idea from concept to reality out of carved wax and burnable objects. Rose plaster coats the original, kiln fires it, melts metal, and pours it into the negative space. Discovering that jewelry and sculpture could be the same, interchangeable, and all that was missing was a way to bridge the two until she then came up with the current body of work: wearable art + small sculpture = Sculpturings.

      “My methods involve a process called kitbashing, where I assemble wax and burnable objects reminiscent of childhood toys, game pieces, organic materials, and imported miniatures to convey a narrative or story. Recycled objects and elements find their way into the mix as new life is breathed into discarded items that become precious metals, literally turning trash into treasure.

      From Nature Consortium:

      Starting in April, we’re introducing a new series of community events in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. On our guided forest hikes, you can explore our local parks and trails in a fun, educational, and family-friendly group. Each hike will center on a different theme or activity, including wildlife, scavenger hunts, plant systems, fitness, and more.

      Birds and Habitats: Learn how birds benefit from our restoration efforts and see or hear who is singing and who is nesting at Soundway and maybe who is stopping in West Seattle during migration. The bird walk will be led by Mike Witter of Audubon Neighborhood Bird Project, an experienced birder who is familiar with birding by ear as well as the habitats offered in the greenbelt. Come rain or shine. Bring appropriate outdoor clothing and binoculars if you have them. Sunday, April 12, 8-10 am at Soundway Park (14th Ave SW & SW Holly St, Seattle)

      There is no registration required for these Forest Hikes.

They are all done on the fly, minimally processed, and express something about a place that evokes a feeling that a single snapshot can’t. Some create a world all their own.

      All his images on display were shot in the Admiral, Alki and Pigeon Point neighborhoods of West Seattle.

But when Riff’s best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo’s younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything to stop their love. (IMDB)

      7:00 pm, Wed., April 15th, 2015, C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      Website: http://WordsWestLiterary.com/

      What is certain in life beyond death and taxes is poetry. From the Tuareg nomads of Niger to the troubadours of France, people from every culture connect to the spoken word. For the April 15th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series. Washington poet Kelli Russell Agodon and Massachusetts poet, January Gill O’Neil, will join us for a night of poetry, including a few poetry exercises. This month WordsWest is again very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows WorsdWest to pay the poets for their time and talent.

      Kelli Russell Agodon is an award-winning poet, writer, and editor from the Pacific Northwest. Her most recent collection is Hourglass Museum (White Pine Press, 2014) and The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice, which she coauthored with Martha Silano. Her second collection, Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room was chosen by Carl Dennis for the winner of the White Pine Press Book Prize, and was also the Winner of ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year in Poetry as well as a Finalist for the Washington State Book Prize. Her other books include Small Knots, Geography, and Fire On Her Tongue: An Anthology of Contemporary Women’s Poetry. Kelli is the cofounder of Two Sylvias Press and is a Co-Director of Poets on the Coast: A Retreat for Women Poets. www.agodon.com

      January Gill O’Neil, visiting for one night only from Salem, Massachusetts, is the author of the recently released Misery Islands (fall 2014) and Underlife (2009), both published by CavanKerry Press. She is the executive director of the Massachusetts Poetry Festival and an assistant professor of English at Salem State University. You can follow her ‘Poet Mom’ blog at http://poetmom.blogspot.com.

      Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On April 15th, we welcome Paul Nojaim of West Seattle Acupuncture.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis , Susan Rich , and Harold Taw .

      Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

      Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.
