Dylan Neuwirth ‘The Celebration’

I first saw Dylan Neuwirth’s art work at a fashion event downtown Seattle. I was so intrigued by his work I kept in contact. After a quick chat I went to check out his new body of work ‘The Celebration’, at his studio in Ballard. What I found was a gallery of large scale neon work, one small scale photographic print, and small to mid-size sculptures. Visually was exciting to the eyes but what was most interesting was the meaning behind all of his art work. He described he art as “What happens after the event or big the social gathering” and “the identity through the expectation, experience and nostalgia”. Being a person who goes to quite a few social gathering everything became clear! I’ve seen this before before but never captured in this way. The this is creative! This is electric! This is art!

If you are a person who checks out galleries or even a person who goes to events you can relate to Dylan’s art work. You can view more of his work on his tumblr page. Private viewing upon request. Regular studio open hours to begin in May and the year’s calendar will be announced soon. Follow him on twitter.

Foodportunity 2012

Did you go to Foodportunity? If you didn’t know Foodportunity, is one of Seattle’s premier networking food events. At Foodportunity 2012 guests sampled bites from Tom Douglas Restaurants, Local 360, Il Corvo Pasta, The Metropolitan Market, Beecher’s and more. One of the best parts of this events is when you actually talk to some one the chefs from these fine establishments. A couple of my favorite dishes were Ilfornaio’s panino vegetariano and Metropolitan Market’s Mac and cheese. Here are some snap shots taken from the event.

Haus Holiday Grand Opening

The Haus Holiday Grand Opening event was a mash with patrons and media as the store buzzed with energy. Big thanks goes out to Melinda Allanson of MP Communication for the special invite to VNT.

The evening started out with an introduction from the owners detailing the launch and the many styles one can find at Haus. Afterwards the models were let lose to turn the entire store into a catwalk. The store front became the final landing for all models. This was great touch to have live models pose in the store front window. This tactic definitely brought the crowds in. Refreshments and horderves were enjoyed by everyone, media included.

Over all it was a good night and we look forward to the next event at Haus. Here are a few pictures of the evening.
