Local artists each create 20 small works on sale for $50 a piece. Participants browse the art works displayed on walls looking for their favorites. When a bell rings, there is a mad scramble as patrons vie to grab favorites off the walls.
Hors d’oeuvres and raffle drawings add extra fun to the night. Proceeds are divided between the artists and the Burien Arts Association.

Sneke One is a legendary fixture of Seattle, Washington’s graffiti art and hip-hop scene. Not only has he left his indelible mark on the Pacific Northwest (along with his crew, DVS), but he’s also established himself in cities throughout the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Canada, Geneva Switzerland & Paris France. Known for “style writing,” Sneke has been delivering dynamic, aerosol murals (transforming a variety of shapes, symbols and letters into colorful bursts of abstract magnificence) for over 20 years. In the last several years he has moved to a multimedia platform, creating contemporary urban-inspired pieces with canvas, vinyl & foam core and layered wood.
THEYDRIFT (Carlos Aguilar and Ksra) - a couple of daydreaming drifters that have been collaborating for many years through their public art campaigns and mural painting across the globe join Sneke in this exhibit of dynamic, colorful street art.
Currently residing in Seattle, and being far from their families, THEYDRIFT has translated this into their work, creating an imaginative world of their own full of happy homes on the go, associating a drifter, always moving forward on adventures, to places unknown. A new story comes to life with each large scale whimiscal mural, vibrant collaborative painting, and even bringing this fantasy to life by creating exquisite sculptural menageries. THEYDRIFT is constantly finding new ways of letting everyone feel at home, through showing their feelings of impermanence and our need for soulful comeradery.
The Gallery is open Wednesday-Saturday, noon-6 p.m. Call 206-244-7808 for more information
