More Biscaynitos in the News

It’s hard to keep up! Watch this interview on KING-5 and read more at Seattle Refined about Cristina Martinez’s intertwined life and career journeys—and how she recently raised $20,000 for Campaign Zero and New Leaders. Cristina and her awesome sprouts are always a bright spot on the third floor. Congrats!

Biscaynitos in the News!

Mari & Misbah of M & M Jewelry Studio were featured on KING-5 for their pandemic “We’ve Got This” necklace project. In true Biscayne spirit, they are donating half the proceeds from sales of the necklace to the White Center Food Bank.

Meanwhile, proprietrix Jane Richlovsky was asked by KUOW’s Marcie Sillman, “How are artists doing at this time?” Well, how long have you got? Not long, as it turned out. You can listen to the whole show here, at the top of the show, or scroll to the bottom for the Good Arts/Biscayne segment.

’57 Biscayne featured on Seattle Growth Podcast: Building Community

Last month Seattle Growth Podcast host Jeffrey D. Shulman chatted with ’57 Biscayne proprietrix Jane Richlovsky about how people find and build community in a changing city. There are two interviews in the episode; the first one is about New Tech Northwest, a community-building project of techies, which contains some ideas that people in the arts could benefit from, but if you want to skip to the ’57 Biscayne part, it starts at 33:44.

Jane was a guest on the show a few years ago, too, along with Good Arts partners Ali Ghambari and Greg Smith. They described how they came together from very different perspectives to create the wonder that is the Good Arts Building (and preserve the wonder that is ’57 Biscayne). Jeff had interviewed them separately and used the interview with Greg in one episode about real estate. He was about to scrap the rest, when the 2016 election happened. He felt like he really, really needed a heart-warming story of people setting aside their differences to work together to do good in the world—that’s us!—so he produced a Very Special Episode out of the outtakes.

’57 Biscayne artists Henrietta’s Eye featured on KING 5 Evening Magazine! Yippee!

Placiness featured on KPLU-FM

KPLU’s Monica Spain interviewed Jane Richlovsky and guest artist Gabriel Campanario about ’57 Biscayne’s current exhibit Placiness, the ’57 Biscayne-Good Arts story, whence the title, Seattle as muse, and more. Read or listen to “Art Exhibit Evokes a sense of Placiness” here.

 

Seattle Sketcher features ’57 Biscayne Artists

It’s been a week of viaduct stories in the Seattle media, including a resurgence of interest in the old 619 Western building, as in, “Say, whatever happened to those artists?”  Bertha the tunneling machine, for whose vibrations we were evacuated from the 619 five years ago, will be burrowing under the old homestead later this month, just a few years behind schedule.

Gabriel Campanario, the famous Seattle Times Sketcher, interviewed and, of course, sketched, Jane and Libby last week and featured our story in his column on Saturday. Perhaps taking Libby’s point that it might be a good idea to go easy on the nostalgia for a particular building and support artists wherever they are, he prominently featured our present digs, the Good Arts Building.
