‘Out of the Shadows’ – an art show inspired by punk, goth and alley art – will be held at the Community Folk Art Gallery in Burien on Friday, Sept. 6.

“People are hungry for arts and culture, and the bacteria-ridden counterculture scenes of punk, goth and alley art should produce a fine crop,” Curator Amber Raven said.

“The reception should be fairly sweet, there’ll be some live painting, instillation work, sticker swap, buttons, zines, d and d, and some cool custom screen printed t-shirts from our friends at Clone Press,” she added. “All kinds of fun stuff set to a cool scene!”

The event has also been offered up as a resource for local arts groups to come and hang out, with the intent of some networking done in a casual non-solicitous way. Oftentimes, organic conversations can contribute to impactful interactions/relationships. Those conversations formed over art can also unify seemingly disparate attitudes and help form a stronger cultural net that we are all working towards building.

Please join curator Amber Raven and crew at this B-Town Beat Art Walk venue on the First Friday of September (the 6th) from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Community Folk Art Gallery in beautiful downtown Burien (at 639 SW 152nd Street; map below).

“Please invite your arts supporting friends to come and party with us!”
