“On the Corner” is a reflection on the significance of the (individually-owned?) neighborhood corner store and cafe. Small in scale and apparently modest in means, our corner stores and cafes play a critical role in the way that we live, get by, stay healthy, and also provide a scene for us to connect with our neighbors.
“On the Corner” is a show of all new watercolors depicting urban scenes throughout Seattle, in Everett and New Orleans.
The show opens at Joe Bar in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood on Thursday, November 12 and will be viewable through December 6, 2015. Opening reception Thursday, November 12 from 6-9pm.
