Ballard Locks Photographer Protest

On August 1st, a collection of bloggers and photographers gathered at the Lake Washington Ship Canal and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in a peaceful protest against discrimination.

In early April, Ian Spiers, a photography student, went to the Locks with his camera and tripod. Seattle Police were alerted to his "suspicious behavior" of taking pictures.

Hello all,

I am on a search for cafe's and venue's in the seattle area that display independent artist's work. Typically artists are rotated on a monthly baisis.

Although not necessary, it would be particularly helpful if you could leave a website (if available) or email address, although not nessessary because I still have some faith in the phonebook. Thanks.
