Graffiti belongs to the streets. And I want to put more than just my name on a canvas. I like to control the destiny of the art I create. Characters, themes of music, love, food, hip-hop. I paint little slices of my imagination. My work has evolved to include unique, emotionally charged themes which are clearly influenced by the culture
that shaped me & made me into an ever-changing artist. I recently moved back to Spokane after being a traveling Chef for 3 years. Signed a lease on an amazing art studio & I’m ready to unpack & start becoming more involved in the community & always thriving Art scene here. I’m always available for the next adventure!!

Event: Opens August 18
Saucy Jack and The Space Vixens | Stage Left Theater and Lilac City Dinner Theater

Step into a cosmic cabaret at Saucy Jack’s, where intrigue and murder play out beneath the glittering facade. As an enigmatic serial killer strikes down cabaret acts with sequined slingback hells, the staff trembles in fear. Saucy Jack himself seems unfazed, more concerned with business than the growing body count.

Meet a diverse cast of characters from downtrodden waitress Booby Shevalle to aspiring saxophonist Sammy Sax, the willing barman Mitch Maypole, and eccentric regular Dr. Willhelm von Whackoff. Amid the chaos, enter Chesty Prospects, a plastic smuggling outlaw, and the sensational Space Vixens. These fierce, disco-powered heroes fight crime and liberate the universe, gracing the bar with their presence.

This cosmic performance is a whirlwind of energy, humor, and campy charm. From singing and dancing to lurex and leather, each twist and turn captivates. Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens isn’t just a show – it’s a cosmic escapade that pulls you right into the heart of the action. So, when the Doctor beckons you to join in and embrace your inner Space Vixen, why resist?

Laura Kaschmitter

All my works, whether paintings or digital pieces, are begun with only the intention of letting happen what wants to happen and that I will do my best to help it be the best it can be. Sometimes I have a subject that I am thinking about but that typically tends to get in the way of the flow. I work mostly in acrylic and watercolor on canvas. I do enjoy the multi-media effects and love trying out new mediums and combinations to see what happens when one encounters another. I have always loved science and nature and am able to combine them within my art. If I receive any inspiration, it typically comes from my experiences in the outdoors, forests, or even my backyard garden. My pieces are for all age groups as they rarely have anything that is directly recognizable as an actual object. Although like the Rorschach test, people tend to see what they want to see.
