Artful Dodger Tattoo Presents the Jello Underground 10th Anniversary Show and Afterparty

Founded in 2009, Jello Underground is a Seattle-based jello wrestling showcase produced and performed by women. The show blends the excitement of competition with over-the-top stage theatrics for an empowering presentation that is loud, funny, messy and exhilarating! The production was chronicled in the award winning 2017 documentary short film entitled Jello Underground, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

To mark a full decade of shows, Jello Underground returns to Seattle for a one-night-only celebration beneath the streets of South Lake Union. On Saturday, May 11th, Evolv Fitness of Seattle will open its brawl room doors for an epic evening of entertainment and festivity. Led by guest host and Seattle-icon Georgia Myles, with appearances by past champions from throughout the decade run, alongside other special guests.

Witness a mix of former champions, veteran wrestlers and new fighters face off in a battle for the championship as current title-holder Rainbow Spite defends her belt. Then hang out with the entire cast and crew during an intimate afterparty hosted by DJ Sailor Doom to celebrate this huge milestone!

Reflect and Gather

Reflect and Gather
By George Rodriguez

Open Studio: April 8 – 24  (artwork under construction; studio open to the public)
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 25 @ 5pm
Exhibition Period: April 26 – May 18
Artist Talk: Saturday, May 1 @ 1pm

MadArt Studio presents Reflect and Gather by Seattle-based ceramicist, George Rodriguez. Rodriguez’s practice is rooted in cultural inquiry, in which mythological lore, color composition, architectural texture, and distinct ornamentation combine in sculptural form to reflect the varied influences of his own heritage and time abroad. In this exhibition, he expands his object-based practice to include intimate, immersive, installation-based works that embody his distinctive style but in new forms.

Reflect and Gather is a series of compact rooms, each comprised of over 1,000 handmade decorative relief tiles, and individualized through a variance in color, texture, and method of lighting. By stimulating the viewer’s visual faculty in an overabundance of ornamentation, Rodriguez creates an environment of disarming stillness and meditation. In addition to his collection of ornately-tiled rooms, he also incorporates a participatory component by leaving a solid wet clay room which records visitors’ movement and physical intentions within the space. Referencing the urban architectural plaza, the rooms are adjoined by a community gathering space created through an assemblage of decorative statues, columns, and benches. This will provide a space for visitors to congregate, reflect, and contribute to the installation.
