Welcome to our Artist’s Homes and Studios pages. Here, we feature local artist’s inside their homes, studios or lofts, to take a look at their creativity and their environments. We also highlight art collectors and their collections, exceptional art shows, galleries and museums in the Seattle area.
Pop Surrealism: The Rise of
Join Kirsten Anderson for a peek into the history, development and current state of the Pop Surrealism/Lowbrow art movement that started in the 60s in Southern California and is now a worldwide phenomena. The movement is now getting grudging, if bewildered, respect from the High Art World, and while it remains slightly vilified, is voraciously collected by forward-thinking collectors. Anderson will also answer Pop Surrealism questions from the audience.
Kirsten Anderson is the owner of the internationally known Roq La Rue Gallery, and is the editor of the book Pop Surrealism The Rise Of Underground Art. She has also curated a museum show in Colorado based upon the book, and was a guest lecturer at the 2005 Mark Ryden Wondertoonel exhibition at the Frye Art Museum.

The Art of Lisa Petrucci
She’s obsessed with pin-ups and pop culture and her paintings are reflective of her various interests – from collecting sleazy vintage men’s magazines and watching sexploitation sinema from the 50’s & 60’s; to the toys, dolls, television shows, comics and collectibles from her childhood.
Lisa lives and works in a cute country cottage, set in an idyllic wonderland on the outskirts of Seattle. The house is full of all the wonderful collections she has of contemporary art and 20th century pop culture and kitsch. She and her husband also run the the ultimate in exploitation and sexploitation video business, www.SomethingWeird.com
