New Show for June at Burien Arts Gallery

Sun, 24 May 2015

Songs, by Rebecca Woodhouse Allard

Rebecca Woodhouse Allard, a printmaker who works in carved linoleum and rubber, will be the featured artist for Burien Arts Gallery’s June exhibit.

Explains Rebecca, “I carve words into linoleum and rubber. I hand press my work, layering colors with different size blocks to create an abstract print.

“Since I carve each plate at a different time, every print combines thoughts from different moments. As a result, the text wouldn’t make sense as a narrative. I intend the words to be a visual element rather than communicative.

“So what do they say?  Some are lyrics from my favorite bands, but most are about life—art, news, self, people, and time.”

Meet Rebecca at the Opening Reception, Friday, June 5, 5 p.m.-8 p.m., at the gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St. The exhibit runs June 3-June 28.

Rebecca has exhibited throughout the Puget Sound area since 2001. She earned her Bachelor of Fines degree in Painting/Drawing in 2000 from the California College of Arts and Crafts.

Artists United will also present their semi-annual small works show in different mediums.

The Gallery in Olde Burien is open Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. It is closed Monday and Tuesday. For more information visit www.burienarts.org or call 206-244-7808.

Hi-Liners: The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Gang

Sun, 03 May 2015

People you want to know in the Seattle Theatre Community!

Artistic Director Kathleen Edwards has invited some of the most talented artists in the Seattle area to take a spin with us on MainStage for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, affectionately known as C2B2. This is part of what makes MainStage a professional experience:

Daniel Cruz (Choreographer): Co-dance captain on the 1st National Tour of the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights which he performed with the cast on So You Think You Can Dance. Daniel is taking inspiration from dance styles like "popping" and "tutting" to meld human and machine for our choreography.

Nathan Levi Young (Music Director): Musical Theatre faculty member at Cornish College of the Arts, and Music Director, Village Theatre, Arts West, Balagan. Nathan approaches vocal ensemble with every level of detail from the beginning. There is nothing more thrilling than 8 staves of vocal harmony!

Tyler Todd Kimmel (Music Director): Recent Adjunct Professor of Music at Pepperdine University, Tyler was just cast as Lamar/Pianist in Godspell at Taproot Theatre. He has been entertaining Hi-Liner audiences for over ten years, performing on the stage at the PAC as a teenager, and now, conducting our incredible pit of professional musicians for C2B2.

Candace Frank (Costume Designer): Recent staff Costume Supervisor ACT Theatre, Candace was named by Seattle Met Magazine as an artist to watch in 2013. Candace takes shows like Cats and Shrek and inserts costume edge, giving our productions a contemporary look and and undeniable flair.

Audition for the C2B2 Cast:
