Arte & Vino At Caffe Torino Series & Slu Art Walk October/November says
Fall is approaching, and so is your opportunity to enjoy art in South Lake Union. Our bi-monthly event called Arte & Vino at Caffe Torino will coincide, for the last time in 2015 with the SLU Art Walk, so mark your calendar and plan to stay for a couple of hours after work to explore the area. It will be worth it!
Five venues are within walking distance from the cafe and flash mobs will entertain you at secret locations and time (sorry, can't spill the beans on that one!).

If you're a planner, get a folding 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:

If you decide to just hang out at the café, we will showcase two amazing local artists:

On the south walls of the cafe, we'll feature "Morbid Anatomy - The Assemblage Art of Anita Arora":
Known for her cross-examination of beauty with that which is often regarded as macabre, assemblage artist Anita Arora studies human nature and the parallels that manifest in not only the history of medicine and science but the complexities that make us who we are. What results are delightfully creepy, aesthetically pleasing shadow boxes. The tools of her trade include bones, rusty nails, antique medical illustrations, apothecary, memento mori and countless curiosities that come into her possession.

Anita translates the world through playful narrative; while tightly-bound, is measured enough to allow personal interpretation by the individual. Her dioramas and cabinets are reminiscent of a bygone era where art and science joined in a painstaking visual effort to reveal the human condition - when the flesh is truly peeled away.

Anita resides in Seattle, WA but her blood and soul may be found at

On the north walls of the cafe, Pauline White will present "Fascinations":

Pauline is a Northwest-based mixed-media artist who embellishes and arranges organic objects to create artworks that invite both curiosity and a sense of balance. Pauline developed an admiration for butterflies and other living gems during a childhood spent in the magical forests of the Olympic Peninsula. Today she uses foraged and found materials—including insects, paper, glass, wood, ribbon, gems, and rocks—to present a structured perspective on natural wonders suffused with spirit.

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