Our three full service restaurants all display works of art that rotate with each new quarterly menu. Our motivation in these art exhibits is to encourage support by our customers of the many talented local artists in our community. The artist’s spirit and creativity enhance our lives and just plain make us smile when we walk into our restaurants.
In accordance with this goal, 100% of the proceeds from art sales in our restaurants go directly to the artists who negotiate directly with the potential buyers for purchase of their work.
The Hi-Life has a rotating art exhibit that addresses the changing seasons in the Pacific Northwest. Approximately 8 weeks prior to the start of each seasonal menu we will send out an art call to those artists on our email list. We request in these quarterly art calls that the Artists submit either JPEG or PDF images of those pieces that they would like to have considered for display. It is imperative that with each submission that the artists provide the dimensions of the piece(s) as we have well defined minimum and maximum dimensions for the approximately 15 pieces requested. The submissions are sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration and the General Manager will respond approximately two weeks before the date of the art installation notifying the Artist that we’d like to display their work. The Artist is then responsible for delivering the art to the Hi-Life in an approximate 48 hour window prior to the date of us displaying the art.
If you would like to be included on our artist’s email list and receive the quarterly art calls for the Hi-Life, please sign-up to receive our Artists Newsletter under the Chow Newsletter link. All inquiries regarding the Hi-Life art program should be directed to Kim Kiefer at 206 784 7272 or via email at email@example.com.
The 5 Spot has been employing the same art program for close to 20 years on Queen Anne. We display 13 different banners that measure 42”x60” in both vertical and horizontal orientations. These are intended to be fun, frivolous and not too (only semi) controversial depictions of the American region that we are featuring on a quarterly basis. We supply the artists with the prepped canvas and a choice of general content that will be addressed in their piece. Come on, can you imagine the fun that you can have with a theme like “Washington DC” during the election season? Each banner that is displayed sells for the price that the artist sets.
At the conclusion of the featured menu, should the banner not sell, we will return the canvas to the artist. In the event that the artist does not pick up their work within 90 days, we, in turn, hold a sidewalk sale each summer where all banners are sold at a reduced rate with 100% of the proceeds donated to our local Elementary Schools for the purpose of purchasing art supplies for those schools.
All inquiries regarding the art program should be directed the General Manager- can be contacted at 206 285 7768 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Endolyne Joe’s also utilizes the “banner” format for artwork to depict the “Food of the Americas”. We display a total of 9 different banners that measure 42”x60” in both vertical and horizontal orientations. Artists may be submitting artwork for a kickass Texas menu in one quarter and then artwork for say, a Montreal menu or an Argentine menu the next time around. We supply the artists with the prepped canvas and a choice of general content that will be addressed in their piece. Each banner displayed sells for the price the artist assigns and sales are negotiated directly with the potential buyer. Should the canvas not sell, the artist is then welcome to come in and pick up their work at the conclusion of the featured menu.
All inquiries regarding the art program should be directed to the General Manager at 206 937 5637 or via email at email@example.com.
