“Plein air your life.” The outdoors inspires Seattle painter.

Artist Kimberly Trowbridge

Artist Kimberly Trowbridge says plein air is just a “fancy Frenchy word” for outdoors. But she loves the practice of painting outside, including her time on the picturesque grounds of Bloedel Reserve. Now, those paintings can be seen at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art in her exhibit “Into the Garden.”

His Seattle Times column “Now and Then” fascinated readers for decades, and the collection of photos, maps, books, and documents he used to create it is unmatched. He recently donated that collection to the Seattle Public Library and needs your help exploring it.

Brian Callanan speaks to guests about the intersections of housing, debt, and public health on City Inside/Out.


Two-week trip evolves into passion project, mentoring & supporting Cambodian artists

Artist Lauren Iida

Seattle-artist Lauren Iida's plane to Thailand was diverted to Cambodia after political protests erupted in Bangkok in 2008. Her plans for a short visit to Southeast Asia turned into a years-long passion project. Today, she manages Open Studio Cambodia in Siem Reap, an artist collective building the country's art scene from the ground up.

When architecture helps build community, it's worth preserving

A couple and their dog sit on a balcony at La Quinta apartments

Residents of La Quinta Apartments love their building and the neighbors in it so much, they rallied to obtain landmark status for the 1927 Capitol Hill oasis. Tucked amidst greenery, the courtyard and balconies lend a touch of whimsy, but the real sense of community living comes from its unique U-shaped design.
