Art Students Tap into History at Seattle's Newest Cider Bar
Stunning copies of master works provide a unique atmosphere for a unique venue
 

For hundreds of years, artists have copied works of the Old Masters to gain new perspective, inspire creativity, and hone their skills in the classical tradition. Today, on Capitol Hill, a new generation of art students is reaching back into the past to create works of art for a uniquely modern venue.

 

At Capitol Cider, carved lion heads adorn handrails and dark wood surrounds the fireplace and vintage piano. And, hanging salon style on the walls are more than 20 well-known works of art - including Gilbert Stewart's famous portraits of George Washington and John Adams, and "Owl's Head, Penobscot Bay," by Fitz Henry Lane.

 

Not the originals, of course - but not prints. These are hand-painted master copies created by students in the Aristides Atelier at Gage Academy of Art. More

LTD. Art Gallery Presents: Saturday Morning
 

Remember a time, when all you needed was a bowl of cereal, your pajamas...and the TV? As children, Saturday mornings were the beginning to the weekend and school was in the rearview mirror. Nothing was sweeter than waking up early, making your way to the living room and taking a journey half an hour at a time. 

 

LTD. Art Gallery is giving you your chance to relive those early Saturday mornings! Enjoy their newest group art show, which will display art work from over 50 artists who enjoyed those morning cartoons too. This display will be up until August 24, 2013. For more information, visit the event post here.

Broadway Video New Release: 56 Up
 

For those familiar with the Seven Up documentary series, you've anticipated 56 Up for, well, seven years. Michael Apted's latest installation picks up where the last one left off. The experience of watching a group of seven-year-olds from Great Britain age over a span of 49 years is not unlike attending a family reunion where the far-flung and twice-removed relatives come back only every once in a while: it's good to see them, but it's not without some discomforts.
