Operating Hours

  • 8am - 10pm
 

Our three full service restaurants all display works of art that rotate with each new quarterly menu. Our motivation in these art exhibits is to encourage support by our customers of the many talented local artists in our community. The artist’s spirit and creativity enhance our lives and just plain make us smile when we walk into our restaurants.

In accordance with this goal, 100% of the proceeds from art sales in our restaurants go directly to the artists who negotiate directly with the potential buyers for purchase of their work. We also, for each of our seasonal/festival menu art shows, select a featured piece that best exemplifies the season/region for us. The selected artist’s work will be displayed on our website that receives approximately 17,400 unique visitors to our website and 31,000 overall visits per month. The selected artist for each seasonal/regional menu will also receive a $50 Chow Card.

As a condition of displaying their art, we expect the artist to leave their work on display for the full 12 weeks of the seasonal menu, with arrangements made with any potential buyers to purchase the art at the end of the seasonal menu run.


Please read on if you are interested in exhibiting your artwork in one of our spaces, and be mindful that each restaurant’s program differs slightly in the way that they are administered. Should you have any specific questions about our art program, please contact Heather Pederson at heather@chowfoods.com. 


HI-LIFE


Summer Featured Artist: Diana Fairbanks, Deception Pass Donuts

The Hi-Life has a rotating art exhibit that addresses the changing seasons in the Pacific Northwest. Approximately 8 weeks prior to the start of each seasonal menu we will send out an art call to those artists on our email list. We request in these quarterly art calls that the Artists submit either JPEG or PDF images of those pieces that they would like to have considered for display. It is imperative that with each submission that the artists provide the dimensions of the piece(s) as we have well defined minimum and maximum dimensions for the approximately 15 pieces requested. The submissions are sent to hi-life@chowfoods.com for consideration and the General Manager will respond approximately two weeks before the date of the art installation notifying the Artist that we’d like to display their work. The Artist is then responsible for delivering the art to the Hi-Life in an approximate 48 hour window prior to the date of us displaying the art.

If you would like to be included on our artist’s email list and receive the quarterly art calls for the Hi-Life, please sign-up to receive our Artists Newsletter under the Chow Newsletter link. All other inquiries regarding the Hi-Life art program should be directed to the Artist Coordinator, Anthony Paden. Anthony can be contacted at 206 784 7272 or via email at hi-life@chowfoods.com.

5 SPOT


Baja Featured Artist: Ellen Spring, Our Lady of Peace

The 5 Spot has been employing the same art program for close to 20 years on Queen Anne. We display 13 different banners that measure 42”x60” in both vertical and horizontal orientations. These are intended to be fun, frivolous and not too (only semi) controversial depictions of the American region that we are featuring on a quarterly basis. We supply the artists with the prepped canvas and a choice of general content that will be addressed in their piece. Come on, can you imagine the fun that you can have with a theme like “Washington DC” during the election season? Each banner that is displayed sells for the price that the artist sets. 

At the conclusion of the featured menu, should the banner not sell, we will return the canvas to the artist. In the event that the artist does not pick up their work within 90 days, we, in turn, hold a sidewalk sale each summer where all banners are sold at a reduced rate with 100% of the proceeds donated to our local Elementary Schools for the purpose of purchasing art supplies for those schools.  

All inquiries regarding the art program should be directed to the Artist Coordinator, Traci Everett. Traci can be contacted at 206 285 7768 or via email at fivespotops@chowfoods.com.

ENDOLYNE JOES          

Caribbean Featured Artist: Bess Pope, Pinkish Pirate

Endolyne Joe’s also utilizes the “banner” format for artwork to depict the “Food of the Americas”. We display a total of 9 different banners that measure 42”x60” in both vertical and horizontal orientations. Artists may be submitting artwork for a kickass Texas menu in one quarter and then artwork for say, a Montreal menu or an Argentine menu the next time around. We supply the artists with the prepped canvas and a choice of general content that will be addressed in their piece. Each banner displayed sells for the price the artist assigns and sales are negotiated directly with the potential buyer. Should the canvas not sell, the artist is then welcome to come in and pick up their work at the conclusion of the featured menu. 

At the conclusion of the featured menu, should the banner not sell, we will return the canvas to the artist. In the event that the artist does not pick up their work within 90 days, we, in turn, hold a sidewalk sale each summer where all banners are sold at a reduced rate with 100% of the proceeds donated to our local Elementary Schools for the purpose of purchasing art supplies for those schools. 

All inquiries regarding the art program should be directed to the Artist Coordinator, Creig Kostoff. Creig can be contacted at 206 937 5637 or via email at endolynejoesops@chowfoods.com.
