Host Nancy Guppy grew up in Seattle and, with the exception of a three-year stint in Los Angeles, has lived in the city her entire life. Before creating arts programming for the Seattle Channel, Nancy spent 10 years as a writer/performer/producer on KING TV's late night comedy show, Almost Live!. Nancy enjoys morning coffee, daily walks, dinner with friends, hang time with husband Joe, and hitting the local art scene as much as she possibly can.
Art Zone drops into the wonderful world of creative reuse at Urban Reclamations, where the workshop-warehouse serves as a stage for illustrator and tattoo artist Shannon Perry and her band Gazebos. Filmmaker/photographer Ethan Folk unpacks his upcoming experimental dance film Vernae, inspired by Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring ballet score. Sculptor and longtime gallery owner John Sisko shares the process for his newest community-based project. We hear from wig master Joyce Degenfelder as she prepares for an opera production, and host Nancy Guppy takes time out for tea with Town Hall Seattle's Global Rhythms curator Brian Faker and composer Ali Samadpour as they prep for the upcoming Hamsaz Ensemble performance featuring the varied musical history of Iran.
