Party Hat invites you to join us for GIFT HOLE, an art-drenched mini mall brimming with wonder, delight, and the finest selection of artist made shit that doesn't immediately trigger existential dread or perpetuate the systematic malaise of big box stores and late stage capitalism!

Neon Salt Waaterr
Leigh Zah Carroll
Lauren Grossman (Great Balls O Fire)
Bridget O'Brien-Smith (BLOBS)
Janelle Abbott (JRAT)

And join us for our First Thursday opening event from 5-9 on Thursday, November 6th to browse the work of the above artists as well as new work from:
Addison Tyler Iwashita Suderman (Alligator Pear Goods)
Other important information: GIFT HOLE will open on Black Friday at NOON so you can SLEEP IN and then party with your friends ~while shopping~ or ~just hanging out and looking at incredible confections.~ We will hold regular gallery hours as well as an event in conjunction with Pioneer Square's First Thursday Art Walk on Thursday, December 7th from 5-9.
On Thursday, December 21st, you are invited to join us for our inaugural HOLIDAY PARTY which will not only be another opportunity to view Gift Hole, but come together to celebrate Baby Party Hat's first few months as a real live art space!
Genre Bender is an original event produced by City Arts that pairs up 10 Seattle artists of diverse disciplines, talents and voices, and commissions them to create original and unique collaborations.
This year’s sixth iteration of Genre Bender will feature the following artist pairs:
- Choreographer/Thunderpussy frontwoman Molly Sides + street artist No Touching Ground
- Rapper/storyteller Yirim Seck + filmmaker/conceptual artist DK Pan
- Visual artist/designer Mary Anne Carter + dancer/choreographer Dani Tirrell
- Folk/blues musician Ben Hunter + filmmaker Tracy Rector
- Theatre artist HATLO + performer/musician Shontina Vernon
New this year, the Genre Bender performances will take place at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute in the Central District on March 3, 4 and 5. Due to demand, a Sunday matinee performance has been added.
Curated by Genre Bender creative director Jennifer Zeyl and City Arts editor in chief Leah Baltus, the event celebrates innovation and cross-pollination in Seattle’s thriving arts community.
Combat the drudgery of holiday shopping by browsing the work of over 50 local artists in Seattle's largest architectural salvage yard! Second Use invites you to join us for our 4th Annual Handmade Holiday Market.
Food, drink, and a storewide sale will accompany this celebration of creativity and resourcefulness within our community.
This event is free, open to the public, all ages, and indoors- we will even turn on the heat! Please promote the creativity of our community through sharing the event with your friends, family, and followers.
