South King County Cultural Coalition Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:36:46 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Phaedra’s Photography Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:36:46 +0000 Normandy Park City Hall
Now through 9/30/2014

The Normandy Park Arts Commission is pleased to present Phaedra’s Photography, an exhibit showcasing artwork of A.L. ‘Sadie’ Reneau, in Normandy Park City Council Chambers, 801 S.W. 174th Street, Normandy Park, during regular business hours.

Born in Memphis, TN, Sad­­ie attended college in Nevada and Idaho.  Sadie’s photography is known at the Puyallup Fair, “Premier Gallery” Puyallup, WA, “Around the Corner Café” Orting, WA, the “Swiss Bar & Restaurant” Tacoma, WA and “Ginkgo Forest Winery” Olde Town Tacoma.  Sadie has published two books with, “Phaedra’s Photo Gallery,” and “Diary of a Washington State Pioneer” using her photography of historical buildings from the 1800’s at the Pioneer Farm Museum near Eatonville, WA. Her photography is set to music on a YouTube video –

Living in the Pacific Northwest, Sadie is at home in its misty, foggy climate and has found her own personal nirvana in the shadows of Mt. Rainier and surrounding small towns and lakes, the setting of many of her photo shoots. “At times, in the pursuit of photography, I find myself dangling from cliffs, hanging precariously onto branches, lying in the middle of a road, straddling a barbed wire fence, even snapping pictures while driving down the road, all for the love of art! Some artists use a brush and paint – I use my camera, artistic eye and computer.”

A reception with the artist is scheduled for September 25, 2014 from 7-9 PM at Normandy Park City Hall.  All art will be 20% off the night of the reception!  for the reception, please RSVP to Arts Commissioner Bob Frey, 206-285-1730 or

Now through 2/7/2015

The Renton History Museum joins forces with the Newcastle Historical Society to present a history of our coal mining neighbor to the North. By the late 1890s, coal mining had made Newcastle the second largest town in King County, second only to Seattle. Pacific Coast Coal Company put its mark on Newcastle in ways that Renton never experienced. When the company left Newcastle after a miners’ strike, many Newcastle residents moved to Renton. Come learn about how different neighboring coal mining towns can be in this fascinating look at another Eastside city.

The Renton History Museum is located at 235 Mill Avenue S, Renton.
