For the first time Burien Little Theatre has fine art in our concessions room during the run of a show! We have been working to make this happen for some time. Not only can you enjoy a beer, glass of wine, or nonalcoholic beverage in concessions you will be treated to eye candy.
Our first artist is Marianne Perkins. She lives in Seahurst (part of Burien). Her studio is in Seattle.
Marianne has been an artist for just about forever. She grew up in Chicago and spent her teen years hanging around the Chicago Art Institute, where she developed a love for painting and a passion for black eye-liner. She has a BFA from the College of Charleston, and studied art in Korea, Denmark, and on the island of Guam (taking full advantage of the “travel opportunities” inherent in her husband’s military career). She is a Signature Member of the Northwest Watercolor Society and is well-known for her massive, and still growing, collection of art supplies. She keeps her brushes, if not her vocabulary, very clean and apologizes in advance for any offense her art may cause.
Marianne mentors an Open Studio at the Tukwila Community Center on Thursday mornings from 10am until noon. Work on your own project in your own medium, or work from a still life. There are occasional “special projects” such as mono-printing, collage, etc.
Fees per month: Under 50: $27 50+: $25
All of the art on display is for sale. Think what a fine addition one or more of these pieces would make to your home or office!
