Aslan Brewing Co.

Mike is the perfect blend of artist, technician, journalist, comedian and workhorse. In this way his images are at times beautiful, haunting, informative, poignant, personal, and hilarious. Mike is an artist living his subject matter, quickly understanding the meaning of a situation and exactly where the magic moment is going to happen and what he has to do to capture it. He's a machine, he's a guru, he's a friend, he's a snowboarder. Mike Yoshida, is a champion.

The Racket Bar and Pinball Lounge

The Racket Bar and Pinball Lounge is proud to welcome a collection of fabric works from local artist Jess Flegel. Large-scale, handmade, one-of-a kind quilts have been Flegel's medium for over 10 years. Her designs, from the familiar to wildly abstract, take on extra depth and texture when portrayed in cloth and stitching, and viewers often feel a deep intimacy when presented with these archetypal objects of warmth and comfort.  The Racket serves a full menu until 11pm, and offers 14 taps, creative cocktails, and a full floor of pinball machines.

Sculpture Northwest

Forging Reflection: Three artists display radically different work but with something in common despite their various approaches. Jason Brown employs traditional Northwest Coast imagery as a starting point but uses a totally different media- forged steel. His reflections are an internal communication with the viewer. Paul Rand uses wood and light in a thoroughly contemporary way that has an architectural quality and actually uses reflected light. Wayne Kangas produces exuberant pieces of collected metal scraps that glitter and seem to move: it sparkles with reflected light.


Social Fabric

Social Fabric, a business where we can celebrate textile arts, sewing arts, and fashion and style! We have taken over the beloved Hatch location at 1302 Commercial Street. Be sure to stop by!
