Rachel Austin, a Portland-based artist, is debuting her newest collection of the “Poppies and Lanterns” series at our November 8th West Seattle Artwalk. These colorful, line-based oil paintings feature bright, intersecting spheres of color reminiscent of paper lanterns and poppies, and are a simple and gorgeous way to incorporate an abstract punch of pattern and color to your favorite living space. Rachel will be joining us for opening night — November 8th, from 6-9p. Also gracing us with her presence will be Rebecca Staffel of Deluxe Foods. Rebecca is the one-woman force behind this Seattle-based company, which creates amazing jellies, jams, and syrups. Each batch is created from peak-of-the-season, sustainably grown fruits and vegetables from Washington (well, except the citrus), following classic French recipes with imaginative twists. We love the gingered rhubarb jam and the peach preserves with vanilla and bourbon, among others. Rebecca will be sharing tastes of her seasonal favorites, with plenty of jars available for purchase. Perfect hostess gift for the holidays!
