Also on display will be paintings from his series 'Plots,' a series of ar-chitectural mixed media paintings on tar paper inspired by homeownership and dreams.

Flynn Bickley earned a BFA in sculpture from Central Washington University in 2001 and currently resides in South Park.

Bickley is a co-founder of the Art Lending Library, a Seattle program that checks out original artwork to the public for free.

'Idol Time' is presented in conjunction with Gay City Arts, through which Gay City collaborates with local LGBT artists to galvanize an audience for Queer arts, foster the de-velopment of LGBT artists, and facilitate artistic excellence across a wide range of disciplines, including theater, music, dance, film, spoken word, literary and visual arts. www.gaycity.org; www.flynnbickleyart.com

Kendall, DJ Lightray, Richard J. Dalton, Robbie Turner, Jamie Von Stratton, Kitten LaRue, Lou Henry Hoover, Aleksa Manila and Kitty Kitty Bang Bang!! for a fundraising dance party.

The color red is commonly accepted as the international symbol of AIDS awareness. The Seattle Red Dress Party builds on that idea and all guests, despite age, gender or sexual orientation attend the event wearing a red dress. The visual of all attendees donning red dresses whether male, female, Gay, straight, old or young, serves as a powerful symbol of solidarity of people living with HIV/AIDS and also reminds us that we are all here to make a difference and support a common cause.

The Seattle Red Dress Party is the second largest event of its type in Seattle and the largest single event that is focused on HIV/AIDS research and related care fundraising in the region. The event was started 4 years ago (this is the 5th annual event) as a sister event to the Red Dress Party in Portland. Both parties raise significant money each year for research, education and testing, for our friends and neighbors who are living with HIV and AIDS, and for children who were affected by AIDS. We raise this money exclusively through sponsorships, ticket sales and bar profits. This year we are adding a silent auction component to the event to raise additional money. With a cure hopefully on the horizon, the money raised now can have an impact like never before.

The event is held at Fremont Studios; a huge production facility that this year will be opened up completely to allow for three rooms (one main room, one side room with stage, another side room for pictures/photo booth and an outdoor area for food trucks, plus more rest rooms). Plus an after-party at Q Capitol Hill included with your ticket purchase.

Tickets: $50 general admission, $120 Floor VIP (limited), Absolut VIP $350 donation (all inclusive) (very limited). (Most of the ticket price is tax-deductible. You will receive a letter following the event for you to use with your 2013 taxes.)

Proceeds benefit Gay City Health Project, Lifelong AIDS Alliance, BABES Network, YWCA, Inspire Youth Project, and Rosehedge/Multifaith Works. www.seattlereddressparty.org
