Lenin Lighting

Friday, December 7, 5p

at Lenin (Red Triangle)

Leave it to Fremont to create such an odd tradition as lighting a communist statue like a Christmas tree. Friday, December 7, Fremont will host our annual “Lenin Lighting” celebration during the monthly First Friday in Fremont Art Walk.  Free refreshments including coffee from Peet’s Coffee and Tea and yummies from area businesses as well will be served in Lenin Square.
The neighborhood will welcome Santa, with his magic light switch, to help the festivities alight.  There will be time for family photos with the joy old sole and rumors abound that he will bring oranges for the good girls and boys and limes for anyone who has been bad!
MC Kirby Lindsay of will lead us in the airing of the grievances as we polka to the music of the Fremont Philharmonic around the Festivus Pole. Truly a Holiday celebration that has to be seen to be appreciated.

Mark Banaag

In my opinion, the biggest influence anyone can have in life comes from his/her surroundings.  Influences of nature, city life, and urban culture are what I take and transfer into photography.
A city is not just defined by what it looks like from the outside, but through feelings, emotions, and occurrences from within. Through photography, I strive to take pictures of moments that can leave an impression. Whether it is a simple elderly couple walking, showing the endurance of life, the sun beaming through cracks of urban sprawl, the unique and persistent methods to everyday living, the beautiful architecture within nature, or simply the way someone can look at you. These are simple things that define life.  I try to spotlight something one may pass in his/her everyday life without realizing its impact.

Intuitive Bodywork

Artist: Tina Carter

I’ve been serious about photography since 2005. Although I love looking at the world around me through my camera, my first serious collection was that of an unusual look at flowers.In 2010, I started compounding photos in Photoshop to explore the space between land and water. I’ve expanded this work, transforming representational photos into abstractions. All images are for sale. Please contact me for more information at:

Sissie Boatman-Guillan

As a native of Puerto Rico with immense pride in my Borínqua roots, I am thrilled to share the island’s beauty with others through my artwork. Seattle has been my home for the past 15 years, but part of her heart and soul will always be in Puerto Rico.
From the moment I got my hands on my first camera as a kid, photography has been a passion of mine. In 2011, I combined this passion with my love of pets and established a small business called PawPrints Pet Photos - Capturing Soulful Pet Images. On my website you can find work ranging from a variety of types of pets to scenic images from around the Northwest and Puerto Rico

Artist:Kitten Chops 

"Heart Opening Energy" is my credo in life and in my artwork. My goal and favorite moment in time is when I find or succeed in creating something that truly touches the heart and the whole rest of the world disappears for that moment. I am constantly on search for this feeling! For me it is usually something super cute, brightly colored or both. Color very effectively communicates an energy/a feeling, no words needed. It also inspires innate creativity and story telling. My two best muses are my own two cats Cicka and Mitsu and their antics.

Artist: Justina Calamia
It's always fun to watch how an artist grows and evolves over time. In the past we have shown Justina and her watercolors were beautifully realistic rendered scenes from nature. Now her canvases literally explode with color and her scenes of nature and abstracts dance vibrantly across your eye. Definitely happy images meant to be enjoyed.
