School is out (or it should be by now), the weather is finally here and Seattle parks are packed to the gills with shorts and sandals clad citizens which means Nancy and the Art Zone crew will soon be taking their annual summer break. In the season finale Art Zone will be coming to you from the glass-filled indoor swimming pool at Dale Chihuly’s boat house. This week’s episode will feature a true story from Seattle-based actor John Aylward (ER, West Wing, North Country). Art Zone will also feature the Americana-tinged pop of singer-songwriter Gabriel Mintz and musician Lizzie Huffman‘s sultry vocals. To get ready for the summer of art, there will also be a “summer art action plan” curated by Seattle Magazine‘s Arts & Culture Editor, Brangien Davis. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy airs Friday at 8:00 PM on Seattle Channel 21 and Sunday night at 11:00 PM on KCTS 9, and is also streaming and podcasting online.

GIVE IT UP FOR ‘GIVE,’ A DOWNLOADABLE BENEFIT COMPILATION FEATURING AN ALL-STAR LINEUP OF SEATTLE BANDS

Seattle Times
There’s zero downside to “GIVE,” a downloadable benefit compilation of 30 genre-spanning songs by Seattle musicians. At $7, you’re paying less than a quarter per song. Every cent of that $7 goes toward local hunger relief and arts education. Each of the songs — most of them exclusive — is good. “GIVE” is the sort of big city/small pond collaboration that could only happen in Seattle. Every facet — music, engineering, graphic design, server space, organization, promotion, etc. — was donated. From the sponsors to the bands, “GIVE” demonstrates the Seattle music community is all things to all people, if the people are willing to dig a little. Bands include Fleet Foxes, the Moondoggies, Visqueen, the Saturday Knights, the Maldives, Grand Archives, Cave Singers, Gabriel Mintz, Arthur & Yu, Talbot Tagora, Hey Marseilles, Pearly Gate Music, Tea Cozies, Fatal Lucciauno, Fresh Espresso, Josh Morrison, Sera Cahoone, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band. “GIVE” is available for download today, November 17th.
