The event creator says
Art-aficionados, this is an event you will not want to miss! Our bi-monthly Art Reception will coincide with the South Lake Union Art Walk! There is a TON of stuff happening near the cafe (did we hear dance performance on the patio by the Khambatta Dance Company? tarot card reading inside by the lovely Regina Chambers?) and in the neighborhood, so plan ahead, get a map - all venues and businesses in the area will have them very soon - or walk around using our online map that you can find at: http://bit.ly/sluartmay7

If you decide to just hang out at the café, you will be able to enjoy "An Itinerant Glimpse", by the very talented Javier Ortega (www.orttega.net).

Javier S. Ortega was born in Seville Spain, where he attended "Escuela de Artes Aplicadas" and worked on the restoration of "Plaza España de Sevilla¨ which gave him the opportunity to travel to Florence to continue his education in sculpture under the Leonardo Da Vinci Scholarship. Upon completion, his time was divided between the cities of Seville, Valencia and the island of Menorca as he began having his first shows. Ten years ago he moved to the city of Seattle, from where he continues his career exhibiting his work in some of the cafes and galleries scattered around the city.

His body of work comprises beautiful acrylic paintings and amazing 3-d sculptured encased in vintage frames. The level of detail in these pieces is astounding: Javier places small spot lights within the frames to give the characters an extra layer of emotions, together with a small music box (you can play it, just be gentle!) that accompanies the sensory journey. You will want to see them in person, words don't do them justice.

The artist will be in attendance, as usual complimentary snacks will be provided, as well as discounted beverages.
