So Seattle is by far a hub for architecture and design. From the EMP,Central Library,to local artists, enviromentalists, etc.So this coming weekend for two days food, design and art will collaborate for an evening of fun at Martyr Sauce Gallery.in celebration of the Seattle Design Festival.
Meet Tariqa Waters:
Tariqa Waters has lived in and worked in Wasington D.C.,Sicily, and Atlanta before relocating with her family to Seattle in 2012.
She approaches her art with an attitude where nothing is taboo and goes out of her way to be both confrontational and comical.Waters runs a gallery/art space in Pioneer Square called Martyr Sauce that is simply described as subversive,blasphemous,iconoclastic fun.<img
