  • February Artwalk | George Perrou

    We are thrilled to welcome back George Perrou for his second solo show at Click!. Perrou's mid-century modern paintings are a perfect pairing with many of Click!'s products (and many of the homes in West Seattle!), and his bright, cheerful aesthetic is perfect for welcoming spring.

    Perrou1

    For the uninitiated, Perrou is a self-taught artist from Portland, OR. His unique mid-century style is heavily influenced by the animation and imagery he devoured as a child.

    He'll be bringing all-new work for our February Artwalk, which opens February 11th, from 6-9p. Perrou will be here for the opening reception, so be sure to stop by to meet the man behind the paintings!

  • February, Valentine's Day, & some gifts to get you through them

    796d8f9548bca212808d25a3ec40b798

    Happy February! It's a funny month; short, winter-y, cold. The first day of February always makes me think of one of my favorite quotes from Tom Robbins:

    "February is pitiless, and it is boring. That parade of red numerals on its page adds up to zero: birthday of politicians, a holiday reserved for rodents; what kind of celebrations are those? The only bubble in the flat champagne of February is Valentine's Day. It was no accident that our ancestors pinned Valentine's Day on February's shirt: he or she lucky enough to have a lover in frigid, antsy February has cause for celebration, indeed."

    marshall

    In case you want to treat a loved one, a friend, a partner or yourself (absolutely no judgements here; it all counts as a celebration!) to help get through February's slow 28 days, we have some lovely presents for any budget.

    Firstly, the portable Marshall speakers above are *amazing*. Charge it for up to 20 hours of (really impressive) sound. Bluetooth enabled, or directly plug in your device. These guys were super popular during the holidays, and we just got them back in stock. A lovely companion for curling up on the couch and listening to your favorite albums or catching up on podcasts.

    jacobsen salt

    Love red wine? Love salt? Portland-based Jacobsen Salt Co. infuses fragrant Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with their Oregon flake salt. Wonderful finishing salt on pasta, steak, fish, roasted mushrooms, or anything you might enjoy with a glass of Pinot Noir. The addition of Jacobsen Salt to any dish simply makes it better - a small luxury that you probably deserve.

    We're also restocked with jewelry from Julia Turner, our latest jewelry crush from San Francisco. Beautiful colors and thoughtful materials are paired together to create light, visually striking work. Fair warning: Julia Turner jewelry can actually cause you to look forward to getting up and getting dressed in the morning, which, let's face it, can be a real struggle this time of year.

    Herbivore_CocoRose_bodyscrub

    And Herbivore Botanicals! Talk about a staff favorite. These products are a perfect addition to February. Moisturizing, soothing, cleansing, and lightly fragrant - all of their products are naturally luxurious. Made in Seattle, with all natural ingredients.

    Hope this helps!

    XOXO,

  • THIS Sunday: Acoustic Music Benefit for Team Smersh

    First and foremost, we want to express our immense gratitude for all of you. You have blown us away with the sincerity of your warm, loving hugs and your incredible generosity. We honestly could not ask for a better community, and we are forever grateful for each and every one of you.

    We are still well on our way to meeting our goal for the Smershes, and we want to thank you for sharing their story. We haven’t even been fundraising for a whole month, but we’ve managed to reach almost half of our goal of $100k. Wow, you guys. Just…wow. Your selflessness is inspiring, to say the least.


    After hearing the news, longtime musician friends of John and Frances decided to join forces for a night of music, laughter, love, and community to help raise money for the Smershes. Each musician has played in some of Seattle’s most notable acoustic bands, and they’ll be showing off their incredible talents in some pretty unique ways. Combining the sounds of folk, swing, Americana, blues, old-time, and bluegrass, this night of celebration is sure to bring all the feels. We’d sure love it if you’d join us.

    Here are the deets:
    The concert will be kicking off at 6pm THIS Sunday (that means free street parking – right on!) at Karass Creative in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Tickets are $25/person, and as with our YouCaring fundraiser, proceeds will be going to Team Smersh to assist John and Frances with current and future medical expenses. Click here to purchase tickets and view location information.

    This exciting night of music will feature the sounds of the following artists:
    Grant Dermody: Harmonica, Vocals
    Forrest Gibson: Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals

    Orville Johnson: Dobro, Guitar, Banjo, Vocals

    We just can’t say it enough – thank you ALL.

  • West Seattle Art Walk | Frances Smersh

    Thursday, November 12th, Click! co-owner and creative director Frances Smersh will be unveiling her latest collection of paintings at the West Seattle Art Walk. We are elated to have Frances' new work grace our walls for the next two months!

    FrancesSmersh6

    Frances has a long-standing love of painting and drawing. Throughout her career as a jewelry designer, sketching was always at the forefront of the design process. Everything started on paper, and eventually made it's way into the materials she loved: sterling silver, stained concrete and cork, steel and powder coat. But around four years ago, Frances put down the jewelry tools completely and fully embraced the adventure of mark making.

    FrancesSmersh2

    Painting has always been more of an exploration than a formally studied art for Frances - she would be the first to admit it. As an active member in the Pratt Fine Arts Center community, she would often find herself in various studios - painting, encaustics, drawing, jewelry, and blacksmithing. Inevitably she would would return to the two-dimensional, delving into varying materials and seeing how they intertwined on paper and wood.

    FrancesSmersh3

    That exploration is beautifully composed in Frances' new collection. Acrylic, pencil, charcoal, and watercolor pencils blend together in delicately balanced work. Paint is applied to birch boards with brushes, paper towel, cloth, or bare hands - whatever feels right. An eraser is a vital tool, exposing previous layers and partially removing others, to build up a complex landscape of texture and line. The process is the image, and the image is the process. Each painting is a map of layers, of starts and stops and changed directions. They each tell the story of how they came to be.

    FrancesSmersh5

    Come join Frances and the rest of the Click! crew on Thursday, November 12, from 6-9p. Come raise a glass to celebrate a beautiful collection and a wonderful lady!

  • Five Ply Design | Lighting Event + Giveaway

    Can we just take a quick second to recognize how INCREDIBLY talented our local artists are? Seriously, guys... PNWers are on another level when it comes to creativity. You may remember these unique laser-cut coasters and the urban BirdHomes hanging in our window. Both of these products are handmade by our neighbor and designer, Peter Benarcik, the creative powerhouse behind Five Ply Design.

    We have an affinity for functional art at Click!, so it's no surprise how flippin' excited we are to announce that Peter is launching a debut of his lighting line in our store on Saturday, November  7th, and we think it's some of his greatest work yet! We are suckers for pendant lights, as you know, and his new contemporary designs certainly don't fall short.

    All of Five Ply's home goods are handcrafted in their micro-studio in Seattle's International District with materials responsibly sourced in the USA. With Peter's background in architecture, you can trust that all of his pieces are carefully structured and built to last. Also, this is perfect timing for the rainy season - who couldn't use a little more light in their home or office this time of year?

    Peter will be hanging out with us all day on November 7, so stop by to meet him, learn more about his work, and pick up a new one-of-a-kind pendant light from his newest collection to cozy up your space just in time for winter. Also(!), we'll be doing a drawing for one of Five Ply's coaster sets, so you definitely don't want to miss out on this exclusive all-day event!
