It’s not hard to find the playfulness Nancy Guppy brings to her weekly TV show—Art Zone with Nancy Guppy (cable channel 21; online at seattlechannel.org)—in her own art.

But which of her collaging techniques came first? Building a program with artists of all kinds of styles and genres, or splicing cutouts from print media atop repurposed paint-by-number canvases?

In her first solo art show, The Further Adventures of Snippity Snap, a collection of approximately 25 reconditioned works, it’s easy to see a wit stemming from her decade as a cast member of the local sketch comedy show Almost Live!, and a natural flair for improvisation.

May 3–June 20. Times vary. Free. Lower Queen Anne, Solo Bar, 200 Roy St.; 206.213.0080.

Nancy Guppy writees a monthly feature, Coffee With Guppy, in our sister publication, Seattle Business magazine. Read her stories here.
