Boxes of Death 5 is back and badder than ever! This year we have an unprecedented roster of world renowned artist, and have teamed up with Roq La Rue Gallery to offer you the chance to be inspired by Death. Come delight your eyes and imagination, and take in what it means to be fully alive in the shadow of the world’s most recognizable box.

Boxes of Death is an unorthodox artist exhibition that abandons the traditional gallery format for larger community based event spaces. Featuring 50 artists, working form all disciplines, all working with the same canvas, interpreting, working with and around the preconceived notions of the ideas and emotions that surround the coffin shape. All creating a unique work of art but that relates to the rest of the artists dealing with the same boundaries.

We have teamed up with Rudy’s Barbershop, Ninkasi Brewing, Juxtapoz Magazine, and Surfrider Foundation to bring you a show like no other. We will be kicking off in Portland Oregon on Oct 3rd and heading down the West Coast to San Francisco and Los Angeles, before bringing it home for the grand finale in Seattle Washington.

WEAVE FEST EVENT: Ego & Jenny Dayton at Bherd Studios Gallery

September 12 – October 31
Art Opening: September 12 @6pm
Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th St, Suite 101, Seattle (Greenwood)

Featuring two solo shows from Seattle artists Ego & Jenny Dayton.

Ego’s work has a flair for slightly dark, whimsical creepiness, influenced by the macabre sides of tattoo culture, street art, and underground fine art.

Dayton creates both paintings and 3-d miniature scenes for this exhibition. Her work is message intense, compassion and respect for animals is the gospel she preaches but she does it quietly. The message is always there, but you have to unfold the layers of the work to see it clearly.  Jenny uses images, Cyrillic text and other graphic elements to guide the invested viewer toward an important truth.
