Matthew Offenbacher will exhibit several paintings which were made from life in his studio this past year. These paintings are proudly transitional and regressive, bringing to mind decorative strains of early twentieth-century French painting. At Lather Daddy, they are intended as a palliative for waiting, boredom and everyday work.
Offenbacher recently won the 2013 Neddy at Cornish award in painting, and is a finalist for this year’s The Stranger Genius award.
Lather Daddy is one of the largest self-serve laundromats in the central Seattle area, located on Capitol Hill. The laundromat is fully attended, clean, and offers a variety of washers and dryers, from single load washers up to a 62lb (about 5–6 load capacity) machine as well as large and small dryers. Lather Daddy also offers a drop-off service with a quick turn around.
