Located in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle, Washington- the Bluebottle Art gallery is an art gallery and boutique focusing on independent art, craft and design. The gallery-store specializes in showcasing amazing and affordable artwork to the market that is created by crafty artists. The goal of the Bluebottle has been to support a network of artists and provide an opportunity for consumers to purchase places that are unique and exclusive.  

The authors and the first owners of the business are known as husband and wife duo Andrea and Matthew Porter. They organized the Bluebottle in 2002, created a sense of community being at the forefront of the DIY indie art and in 2010 they sold the Bluebottle and moved, full time to focusing on building the Matthew Porter Art line.

Now, comes word about the Bluebottle’s new owner starting April 1-a freelance writer and illustrator Jesse Oleson. Jesse is known as the creator of the popular baked goods website Cakespy’s goods include art and clothing featuring anthropomorphic baked goods at frolic and play. The Cakespy crew is comprised of about 6 or 7 Cake Gumshoes throughout the US.

 As Oleson announced her new business venture via Twitter @cakespy- she describes the Bluebottle as a Cakespy retail shop and told, she  will be assisted by her husband, Danny Oleson, a fixture in the Seattle music scene from the bands Exohxo and Speaker, an overall cool guy and arts enthusiast. Now let’s don’t forget that before the sale Bluebottle showcased over 100 different artists in the boutique section and had a strong mailing list of consumers from Twitter, Facebook and a lively blog. Jesse Oleson, the Head Spy of the cakespy plans on continuing the tradition of showing the best indie art around, and making Seattle a sweeter place. And as a conclusion we are sure that the right buyer is chose and Bluebottle will continue to have a similar vibe and support emerging local talent in the Seattle community.
