Travis Louie's monsters in Seattle

NewImageSeattle's legendary Roq La Rue Gallery is moving from its longtime Belltown location to a beautiful new space in Pioneer Square! Congratulations, Kirsten! This month is your last chance to visit the current digs, and there's quite a send-off show opening tonight. Monster keeper Travis Louie has a new solo exhibit of paintings hanging until May 4! "Monsters On Their Day Off" is a series of portraits of Louie's elegant beasts during their down time. The paintings are also viewable online. Above, Baxter:

Baxter worked as a butler for an eccentric oil baron in 1898. His father was a Krampus who emigrated from Bavaria in the 1860's and married a school teacher from Piscataway, New Jersey. Baxter grew up to be erudite and purposeful. he had a fascination with the wonders of the world particularly insects. During the warmer months on his days off he would wander through the town marveling at nature.

  1. I’ve never understood why I’ve never read about Roq La Rue in the local alt weekly(s), but always on BB. Moving to Pioneer puts it within a lunch break’s walk for me, so now perhaps I can finally see what it’s all about.

  2. If you think Vincent`s story is shocking,, last pay check my sisters father in law basically made the small fortune of $5293 workin a fifteen hour week from their apartment and their buddy’s half-sister`s neighbour did this for 10-months and made more than $5293 in their spare time from a labtop. use the guidelines from this website……….
