"Glasses" by Isaac Layman
Another Day In “Paradise” With Isaac Layman
Frye Art Museum unveils a new collection from a gifted local shutterbug. “I never cared for art class,” Isaac Layman told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in June 2010, when his “110%” exhibit opened at Lawrimore Project.

One Day’s Wages 2011 Annual Gala
Hello Seattleites! Starting today, we’re going to try something new. In order to bring you even more great party pics and keep the ads to a minimum, we will charge a small amount for access to some Seattleite photo galleries — not much, just 25 or 50¢. We’re working with TinyPass to make the payment process quick and painless. It takes just a few clicks to drop a dollar or two into your account, then use that balance to easily access all of the premium photo galleries. And we’re especially excited about this first gallery of photos from the One Day’s Wages gala last week because Seattleite is donating 100 percent of the proceeds back to ODW — a great organization based here in Seattle that’s working to alleviate global poverty. Click the blue button below to see six more pages of photos. So enjoy the photos, and thanks for supporting Seattleite and One Day’s Wages! — Jane Yuan, Chief Seattleite (more…)
