Live music at Pacific Room – times/dates vary
Feb 19 all-day

Full lineup here for live entertainment at the Pacific Room (WSB sponsor) on Alki!

Warren Pope: Red Lines, Blood Lines @ Vashon Center for the Arts
Feb 19 all-day

Warren Pope: Red Lines, Blood Lines

Art Exhibition at Vashon Center for the Arts (Vashon, WA) February 7 – 29, 2020
Meet the Artist & Opening Reception: Friday, February 7, 2020 – 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Pope’s art explores matters of systemic inequities. This show is an abstract art exhibition that examines the historical and contemporary realities of redlining (refusing to loan money to people in areas with populations of color), displacement and American slavery trade. He also shows art inspired and in homage to his ancestors in Africa. With a minimalist style, Pope combines three dimensional art with basic visual elements such as lines, shapes, and color to explore redlining history.

With an international influence, a socially conscious mentality, a firm view for cultural equity and a dash of forwardness, Warren Pope has crafted an established visual art career inside and outside of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Munich, Germany of a Czech Mother and an African American Father, Warren and his two brothers were often ridiculed and beloved by their communities for their art and outward connection to social equality and justice. Like many military children, Warren was exposed to cultural difference, social customs and awkward experiences of acceptances and domestic indifference. Popes father, John Pope, served in the military and for a time was stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington.

Popes artistic interest was first influenced by his Mother Ann Pope, when she fashioned his fascination for art while his father’s family and cultural heritage educated him on his American and African ancestry. Traveling between Harlem New York, North Carolina, Tacoma Washington, Kansas and Germany, Pope was able to absorb the vast difference between his social and ethnic experiences.

Instead of bedtime stories, Popes mother would draw illustrations with wild imaginative plots that began the foundation of his creative conceptual and artistic thinking. For Pope, this formed a formidable ability to compose his art into direct visual narratives utilizing a minimalist style of directness for various complex cultural commentaries.

Warren Pope is an alum of the Univ. of Puget Sound, and has lived in Seattle for over 30 years. His career has involved twenty years of graphic art dealership associated with the Mack Gallery and environmental design landscaping. His personal art has been privileged to be shown and supported by two major galleries in the Pacific Northwest, one being the American Art Company and the other being Gallery Mack. His show “Blood Lines, Time Lines, Red Lines” opened at the Northwest African American Museum to rave reviews, and extended an extra month due to popular demand.

Gallery Hours : Tuesday – Friday: 11-5 pm, Saturday 12-4 pm (Closed Sunday/Monday)

This show is an abstract art exhibition that examines the historical and contemporary realities of redlining (refusing to loan money to people in areas with populations of color), displacement and American slavery trade. He also shows art inspired and in homage to his ancestors in Africa. With a minimalist style, Pope combines three dimensional art with basic visual elements such as lines, shapes, and color to explore redlining history.

With an international influence, a socially conscious mentality, a firm view for cultural equity and a dash of forwardness, Warren Pope has crafted an established visual art career inside and outside of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Munich, Germany of a Czech Mother and an African American Father, Warren and his two brothers were often ridiculed and beloved by their communities for their art and outward connection to social equality and justice. Like many military children, Warren was exposed to cultural difference, social customs and awkward experiences of acceptances and domestic indifference. Popes father, John Pope, served in the military and for a time was stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington.

Popes artistic interest was first influenced by his Mother Ann Pope, when she fashioned his fascination for art while his father’s family and cultural heritage educated him on his American and African ancestry. Traveling between Harlem New York, North Carolina, Tacoma Washington, Kansas and Germany, Pope was able to absorb the vast difference between his social and ethnic experiences.

Instead of bedtime stories, Popes mother would draw illustrations with wild imaginative plots that began the foundation of his creative conceptual and artistic thinking. For Pope, this formed a formidable ability to compose his art into direct visual narratives utilizing a minimalist style of directness for various complex cultural commentaries.

Warren Pope is an alum of the Univ. of Puget Sound, and has lived in Seattle for over 30 years. His career has involved twenty years of graphic art dealership associated with the Mack Gallery and environmental design landscaping. His personal art has been privileged to be shown and supported by two major galleries in the Pacific Northwest, one being the American Art Company and the other being Gallery Mack. His show “Blood Lines, Time Lines, Red Lines” opened at the Northwest African American Museum to rave reviews, and extended an extra month due to popular demand.

Join us for a midwinter gathering of marine mammal friends and fans in West Seattle. Whale Trail Director Donna Sandstrom will review the current status of the endangered southern resident orcas, and ongoing efforts to protect them.

With the loss of L41, the southern resident population has been reduced to just 72 individuals.
Despite the widespread attention on J, K and L pods, why has so little progress been made?
Donna will also share the Whale Trail’s vision and priorities for 2020. Learn how you can help, and make a difference for the southern residents before it’s too late.The presentation will be followed by an informal gathering of Whale Trail friends and supporters. Everyone is welcome!

Reminder – Whale Trail Photo Contest! We’re sponsoring a social media photo contest until 2/29. Take a picture of your self or your friends at a Whale Trail site, hashtag it #mywhaletrail #location. Follow us on Instagram or Twitter, and post it there. There will be prizes! Check out our website (www.thewhaletrail.org) and social media for details.

About the Speaker

Donna Sandstrom is the Executive Director of The Whale Trail. She founded The Whale Trail in 2008 to build awareness of the southern resident orcas throughout their range. She recently served as a member of Governor Jay Inslee’s Task Force on Southern Resident Killer Whale Recovery, and the Vessel Impacts Working Group that supported it.

In 2002, Donna was a citizen organizer on the effort to return Springer, an orphaned orca, to her pod and native waters. It’s the first and so far, only, successful orca rehabilitation and reunion in history.

Prior to founding The Whale Trail, Donna had a 14-yr career at Adobe Systems, where she was a team and project manager. She attended UC Santa Cruz, where she studied psychobiology. Her first book, a middle-grade non-fiction book about Springer, will be published in Spring 2021 by Kid’s Can Press.

Warren Pope: Red Lines, Blood Lines

Art Exhibition at Vashon Center for the Arts (Vashon, WA) February 7 – 29, 2020
Meet the Artist & Opening Reception: Friday, February 7, 2020 – 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Pope’s art explores matters of systemic inequities. This show is an abstract art exhibition that examines the historical and contemporary realities of redlining (refusing to loan money to people in areas with populations of color), displacement and American slavery trade. He also shows art inspired and in homage to his ancestors in Africa. With a minimalist style, Pope combines three dimensional art with basic visual elements such as lines, shapes, and color to explore redlining history.

With an international influence, a socially conscious mentality, a firm view for cultural equity and a dash of forwardness, Warren Pope has crafted an established visual art career inside and outside of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Munich, Germany of a Czech Mother and an African American Father, Warren and his two brothers were often ridiculed and beloved by their communities for their art and outward connection to social equality and justice. Like many military children, Warren was exposed to cultural difference, social customs and awkward experiences of acceptances and domestic indifference. Popes father, John Pope, served in the military and for a time was stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington.

Popes artistic interest was first influenced by his Mother Ann Pope, when she fashioned his fascination for art while his father’s family and cultural heritage educated him on his American and African ancestry. Traveling between Harlem New York, North Carolina, Tacoma Washington, Kansas and Germany, Pope was able to absorb the vast difference between his social and ethnic experiences.

Instead of bedtime stories, Popes mother would draw illustrations with wild imaginative plots that began the foundation of his creative conceptual and artistic thinking. For Pope, this formed a formidable ability to compose his art into direct visual narratives utilizing a minimalist style of directness for various complex cultural commentaries.
