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.

Oddfellows’ Second Annual Whoopie Pie Bake Off

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love sweets. No correction I really really love sweets! I can survive on ice cream and german chocolate cake for weeks on end. So when I heard about Oddfellows Café + Bar Second Annual Whoopie Pie Bake Off I was all in. However before I get into the competition let me explain what a Whoopie Pie is for those who don’t know. A Whoopie Pie is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of baked cookie, pie or cake. In between these cakes is a sweet, creamy filling or frosting. Think of something close to a Oreo cookie or a ice cream sandwich.

Bake off contestants were made up of professional and amateur bakers. Whoopie Pie entries were apprised by the crowd and a unique panel of official judges. Categories during the competition were: Home-Baker, Professional, and Gluten-Free/Vegan, with prizes for best classic and best non-traditional Whoopie Pies in each category. The prize for winning the Crowd Favorite Whoopie Pie will be an invitation to be a judge in the contest next year!
