Fall Artist’s Way Classes via Zoom Are Now Open for Registration (21+)

Weekly, Sept. 18–Dec. 4 — 6:30–8:30 p.m.

From the host: The Seattle Artist’s Way classes are based on The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron which takes students through a 12-week course to explore their inner creativity. For some that inner creativity could be getting in touch with their artistic dramatic side, while for others it might look like being more creative in their personal or work life. A number of our students have found our classes particularly helpful during job transitions while others noted that the material helped them to uncover new ways to tap into their creative side as well as ways to nurture themselves. The tools of the program are practical, straightforward, inspiring, and easy to implement. We offer both group 1-week Artist’s Way classes as well as individual one-to-one creativity coaching.

Our Fall Quarter 2023 Artist’s Way online classes via ZOOM are Open NOW for Registration with classes beginning mid-September and running through early December 2023.

Rafael Soldi: Soft Boy

Oct. 7, 2023–Jan. 7, 2024 — Wed.–Sun., 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Ave., Seattle, WA 98104

From the host: Seattle artist Rafael Soldi uses photographic media to examine the intersection of individual identity with larger political and social themes such as immigration, memory, and loss. The artist’s current work builds on his experience as a queer youth in Peru to focus on the construction of masculinity in Latin American society. “Soft Boy,” Soldi’s first solo museum exhibition on the West Coast, brings together three recent projects that explore how gender expectations are encoded — and can be subverted — within language and childhood games. 

For more information about the exhibit, please visit Frye Art Museum’s Rafael Soldi: Soft Boy exhibition webpage.

Clarissa Tossin: to take root among the stars

Oct. 7, 2023–Jan. 7, 2024 — Wed.–Sun., 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Ave., Seattle, WA 98104

From the host: Clarissa Tossin works across artistic mediums, including film, sculpture, and drawing, to explore the intersections of climate change and global capitalism’s frontier mythologies. Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and now based in Los Angeles, Tossin bridges Latin American and United States histories of economic and cultural exchange to interrogate persistent legacies of colonialism. The artist repurposes consumerist detritus—specifically Amazon delivery boxes—in her material investigations of the Amazon rainforest’s exploitation. In recent works, she envisions how the same ecologically disastrous cycles of human consumption on Earth will manifest in twenty-first-century space exploration. Spanning more than a decade of the artist’s career, this first museum solo presentation of Tossin’s work on the West Coast features several new commissions created for the exhibition.

For more information about the exhibit, please visit Frye Art Museum’s Clarissa Tossin: to take root among the stars exhibition webpage.

Or let it destroy herself and her brother?

A stage play that delves into Filipino culture.

Joint Feminist Actions Commemorating the Women Life Freedom Uprising in Iran

Sept. 15 —7 p.m. Marching Protest, Performance Showcase, Flash Mob Singing
Cal Anderson Park, 1635 11th Ave.

From the host: Jina is the symbol of the struggle to reclaim life: the attainment of equality,

justice, and liberation from oppression. Iran’s State femicide of Jina (Mahsa) Amini and the killing of hundreds of martyrs and thousands of wounded and imprisoned, has truly ignited the flame of the Jin Jiyan Azadì revolutionary movement, with women, trans and queer people, and other oppressed marginalized groups in its forefront. It crossed borders and has united us together in our fight and resistance. Now on the eve of the anniversary of the murder of Jina, which is but the continuation of femicide politics and systematic misogyny of the Islamic Republic regime, in solidarity with this revolutionary movement, we, a group of feminist collectives outside Iran, call on all those whose aim and ambition is a world free of sexual, gender, class, national, racial, ethnic, and religious oppression to participate in street night marches everywhere, where we will loudly shout: Liberation is our right, Jina symbol of our fight, Jin Jiyan Azadì.

Craetorus (EP Release) with Lightweight Champion and Miguel Escobar (All Ages Until 10 p.m.)

Sept. 23 — Doors at 7 p.m., music from 8–11 p.m.
Tim’s Tavern, 9655 16th Ave. SW

From the host: $10 presale online (save money!), $15 day of show, cash at door.

CRAETORUS: Starting as a solo musician from late 2017 to 2021, Darla Rae (front person of Craetorus) has been making moves to push for inclusivity and diversity in the Washington music scene. Their lyrics are described as contemplative, with tinges of catchiness, but enough to leave you with catharsis and a yearning for self reflection. Musically sounding in the likes of jazz, R&B, psychedelia, prog rock, and indie, they’ve somehow made a conglomeration of it all to make Craetorus’ distinct sound. Releasing their first single “Ivy” in April of 2019, they’ve been on the path to musical discovery with the recent support in May of 2022 from Jon Garber, Lychen Gipaya, Ryan Anthony Brooks, Nico Mitchell, and Danilo Martinez. Catch them soon with an EP release in 2023.

LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION: Seattle indie alternative/alt-country. From WASHMAG on Lightweight Champion’s debut EP, Valley: “Lightweight Champion exact alt-country with an air of orderliness; think a pair of boots freshly scuffed rather than worn in. The melodies are simple but compelling, the rhythm section is tight, and Gabriel Delayne’s versatile piano keys makes for a formidable secret weapon. Most of it is comfortingly well-trodden material, like the three-chord lamentation of ‘Underperforming’ and the breezy ‘Winter Leaves.’ Closer ‘Daisy’ is the outlier, a milieu of synth and processed vocals that foreshadow an intriguing path for the band outside the familiar bar buzzers the band does so well here.” Members are Aaron Spieldenner, Gabriel Delayne, Cam Hancock, and Tom Moskal. Insta: @LightweightChampionBand.

Scarecrow Video Zeitgeist ’23! — Why Can’t I Stream This?

Sept. 30 — 2–3:30 p.m.

From the host: An Unstreamable discussion hosted by Chase Burns and Jas Keimig. Navigating streaming services can be treacherous.

In this discussion based on their Scarecrow column, writers and film nerds Chase Burns and Jas Keimig will talk in-depth about how four movies — Crossroads (2002), The Brave Little Toaster (1987), Super Mario Bros (1993), and Heavenly Creatures (1994) — became unstreamable and why physical media matters. 

Admission is free. Registration is required.

SJF 45th Birthday Party

Oct. 7 — 6–9 p.m.

From the host: This year we’re grounding in celebration and joy by hosting an SJF Birthday Party; we’re not choosing this theme because times feel light or overly celebratory — just the opposite, in fact. We chose it because we believe joy and abundance are critical to center when doing social justice work. Stopping to fill our cups allows us to give more to community, more to the movement. We invite you to come and celebrate our journey as an organization, but also to celebrate the collective work and labor that we’ve put in together over the past weeks, months, and (45!!) years as folks committed to building and supporting progressive social movements.
