About Art Zone with Nancy Guppy

Take a look at Seattle's fabulous creative scene, with fresh highlights from local arts, entertainment and cultural happenings. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy features interviews with local artists and performers, reviews and previews of current offerings, and lots of surprises. New episodes of Art Zone with Nancy Guppy premiere Friday nights at 8 p.m., with additional playbacks throughout the week.

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 Phones It In 7/30/20

Nancy and Joe leave the confines of their condo and "phone it in" from the bucolic surroundings of Parsons Gardens, a charming public park on the top of Queen Anne Hill. Nancy Zoom chats with filmmaker Megan Griffiths about being invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; beloved punk rock Seattle band Fastbacks play a new version of their classic 1993 tune "They Don't Care;" Reel Queer Youth, the film and media workshop for LGBTQ+ youth, goes virtual; Drive-in movies make a comeback; and the Guppy's reveal a few of their "Regrettable Pandemic Purchases." 

"Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" has temporarily morphed into "Art Zone Phones It In," a low-tech scrappy version filmed in the social distancing comfort of Nancy's condo. With Joe Guppy running camera (his iPhone), Nancy and her remote but mighty AZ team curate homegrown video performances by musicians, actors and comedians; present video interviews with artists, city leaders, and owners of art-based businesses; and feature laugh-out-loud moments like cooped-up cat roommates and Nancy giving Joe a much needed, and very bad, haircut.
