Join us for at The Henry for their Fall Open House featuring their current exhibitions such as "MOTHA and Chris E. Vargas present: Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects." Celebrate with us and catch Lion's Main's collaborative performance piece which will be happening throughout the night.
Lion's Main Art Collective presents the Othello Quartz Festival. This daytime event in the John C Little Sr Park is focused on connecting artists of color and queer/trans artists with the South Seattle community. We will host installation art, performances, dancers, poets, and face painters. This is a free event run by POC.
This 3 day gallery event will address gentrification, displacement, liminal and transitional spaces. Moving, waiting, changing, sustaining, places that offer us public and private platforms to interact with movement and flux. Artists involved have been asked to respond with work that addresses these in-between spaces, whether they relate to physical location, memory, time, or the ethereal.
Friday, May 6th-Sunday May 8th

The biophilia hypothesis suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.
Lion's Main hosted Biophilia in Georgetown in the summer of '15 as a fundraising party for our next show, Erasure. It was a magical night featuring a garden installation by Olivia Greene, live dj's, and a photo booth. We also debuted the 'Biophilia' Zine, which is available online. The party theme and zine entries were inspired by the following definition:

The Lion's Main Art Collective partnered with Central Cinema and Youngstown Cultural Arts Center to host an evening of trans and queer short films. All films were created by local Washington artists. We were able to award a prize of $150 to the best film, determined by the audience's vote, to help artists create more work in the future.
Featured artists include:
A small glimpse into an alternate reality, or a means of traveling between realities. A gateway, a peephole, a liminal threshold, a porous barrier, a hole to transformative spaces
