As some of you might already know, Cafe Artemis, the newest member of the On Safari Family is now open for operation – serving hungry professionals in Lower Queen Anne breakfast, lunch, and espresso every week day from 7:00am-3:00pm.
What you might not know is that Cafe Artemis will also be showcasing the artwork and photography of Seattle creatives on a quarterly rotating basis. This means that every four months, patrons of Cafe Artemis will get the chance to ponder the artistic vision of a new local talent.
In addition, we will also be hosting a complimentary open house every quarter to celebrate the arrival of each new artist. So be sure to keep up to date via our Facebook for Open House dates and times.
The very first artist to grace our walls was Seattle’s own Melissa Evans.
With a B.A in Cultural Anthropology and a Masters of Urban Planning, Melissa Evans uses art as a process through which to press pause on the comings and goings of everyday life. Her paintings are done in acrylic, on both canvas and wood backgrounds. When discussing her process, Melissa’s states, “In sharing my works, I share my deepest self; to myself and others.”
To learn more about Melissa and her work, please visit her website at Studio 4141.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended this event, as well as to Melissa for volunteering to be our first artist on show!
Remember this is a quarterly event, so if you missed the last one – there are three more to come this year! Updates on dates and time coming soon.
