How often does an emerging Seattle artist get selected by a national corporation to produce work for a global sports event? Well now we can say at least once. I'm so thrilled for local artist (and Seattle magazine 2008 Spotlight Award winner) Diem Chau, who was tapped to carve 66 of her signature Crayola crayon sculptures (NO, not the jumbo size, the regular, tiny size) with the likenesses of 6 famous players for Nike's World Cup press kits. Only 11 of these kits went out (I don't know to whom...

There are ballets out there that everyone knows—chestnuts, like The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, etc.. Then there are the ones that aren't so well known.

My sources tell me the lines usually start around 6:45 p.m., so the ticket-poor should arrive early.

I was recently contacted by the King County Noxious Weed Control Program because one of their staffers had identified Garlic Mustard, a seemingly innocuos little flowering plant that was not so slowly making huge and unwelcome inroads into our region's flora, growing on my property.

After an inspiring, light-hearted day of presentations last Friday (at one point, fashion correspondent Joan Kelly tried to squeeze into one of Molly Griffith’s exquisite corsets) and much deliberation, we’ve selected the 2010 winners of Seamless in Seattle. The following seven designers will make their runway debut at Fashion First on September 16, and will be featured in their own package in our September issue. Congrats to:  Emerging
